Understanding the difference between organic meat and non-organic meat is imperative for making informed decisions about the foods we eat.
Organic animals are not allowed to be given antibiotics, any genetically engineered drugs, or bovine human growth hormone (rbGH), a drug that artificially increases milk production in cattle.
Over half of the antibiotics fed to mass-produced farm animals, including chickens, are the same ones prescribed to human beings. It has been well publicized lately in the media that the overuse of antibiotics is leading to super strains of bacteria that are growing resistant to antibiotics. This is creating a wide opening for human diseases that potentially won’t be helped with the antibiotics currently available.
Organically raised animals are not allowed to eat genetically modified foods
.GMOs are genetically modified organisms whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. For example, scientists have been able to splice fish genes into tomatoes, producing the trait of a more freeze-resistant tomato. While this may sound good in theory, (Read More....)
