Intensive livestock farming is fuelling an antibiotic resistance crisis. This Guardian investigation uncovers the extent to which antimicrobial resistant diseases like LA MRSA CC398 are infecting our food and threatening our health.
"Almost every single hair was infected", says a Danish pig farmer, infected with a new form of the antibiotic resistant pig superbug LA-MRSA. Filming undercover, this report shows how an insatiable desire for cheap meat is giving rise to a new form of factory farming in which antibiotics are over-prescribed on an "astronomical scale", fuelling an epidemic of antibiotic resistant diseases. As more us become infected via our food, the dangers to our health could be severe. "If this goes on we will see the end of modern medicine", explains the UK Health Minister.
