As much as 300 mg of antibiotics is used in production of every kilogram of meat and eggs. Wow!
This use of subtherapeutic doses of antibiotics not only has the potential to alter the meat itself but also what comes along with, i.e. antibiotic resistant bacteria. By the way, small amounts of antibiotics can still be detected in the meat that is ready for you to buy and then eat!
These chemicals transferred to fetus and its developing brain may include maternal antibodies as a result of infection, abnormal neurochemical signals due to altered brain-gut-bacteria communications in mother, absorbed bacterial toxic products with their antibodies as well as potentially noxious semi-digested food products.
Here is a link to a posting by my pediatrician friend Dr. Sood about sore throat and over use of antibiotics.
Unnecessary use of antibiotics not only creates drug resistant bacteria but also disrupts the bacterial balance in your gut with short and long term consequences including but not limited to diarrhea and chronic immune dysfunction.
