Livestock, Chocolate, Health Care

  • From KCRA via the Fooducate blog: California may pass a bill which bans the use of antibiotics in animal feed. Great idea, if it's properly enforced. Why is it a bad idea to give cows and pigs regular doses of antibiotics? It contaminates human food and contributes to the development of drug-resistant bacteria.
  • TCM properties of chocolate.
  • Chinese medicine is preventive medicine. Of course, that's not all Chinese medicine can do - in China they are doing incredibly interesting stuff with herbs in the ER.
