New UK food poisoning figures published | Food Standards Agency
There are more than 500,000 cases of food poisoning a year from known pathogens. This figure would more than double if it included food poisoning cases from unknown pathogens.
Campylobacter was the most common foodborne pathogen, with about 280,000 cases every year. [...] Poultry meat was the food linked to the most cases of food poisoning, with an estimated 244,000 cases every year [... BUT ...] 10 million cases of infectious intestinal disease (IID) a year are not yet attributed to a specific pathogen. [ lack of backtracking, unable to backtrack to source ] &! &! Hidden Death Toll - //&! - 2014 excess of 1m cases.

'Almost too late': fears of global superbug crisis in wake of antibiotic misuse | Society | The Guardian
Despite European Union regulations aiming to cut back on the unnecessary use of antibiotics, Dr Brown believes it will take more than just legislation to tackle the superbug crisis. Market forces will need to be compelled to cut usage, perhaps when prompted by a shift in public opinion, he said. “Those with a vested interest find ways around legislation. So, in addition to public policy we will need also the power of market forces,” he added. “When the public start demanding meat that has not seen antibiotics - because they understand that the meat may contain antibiotic resistant bacteria - only then will real progress be made. We need education about the threat.”

Bacteria that resist 'last antibiotic' found in UK - BBC News
[ over 80% of antibiotic use - livestock farming. also use of colistin. self-regulated. ] Bacteria that resist the most common antibiotic of last resort - colistin - have been discovered in the UK. Officials say the threat to human health is low, but is under ongoing review. Scientists warned the world was on the cusp of a post-antibiotic era when such resistance was discovered in China last month. Now checks have discovered the same resistance on three farms and in samples of human infections. [...] Colistin-resistance was discovered in fifteen of them, including samples of Salmonella and E. Coli. [...] The DNA that gives bacteria resistance to colistin - the mcr-1 gene - can spread rapidly between species. The concern is that colistin-resistance will now find its way into other superbugs to create infections that doctors cannot treat. //&! //&! //&! //&! //&! 50-50 chance to salvage situation -

Revealed: the dirty secret of the UK’s poultry industry | World news | The Guardian
17m birds slaughtered in UK alone each week. // " You are producing them more slowly." << That is how we talk about animal lives. & UK Regulator: "its the job of the industry to crack this problem." (neoliberal stance, please self-regulate yourself) [...] "It's a judgement call what we publish. [...] we don't want consumers to be mislead or confused" < that is out of the book of repeat messages from the food lobby. // TORIES, nasty party. Like Osborne tax credit cut is a "judgement call" in his own words in-front of select committee. // // consumer ask for those "standards" because they ask for lower prices. and unregulated capitalism will short shrift to make more profit no matter what. even if it is just a penny. // Lack of compassion. Empathy. Also reflective towards our fellow human beings.

fekalien belasted!!! You are literally eating shit. ( )--- //Acht Produkte im Labor- und Geschmackstest: Trotz Skandale um Antibiotika-Missbrauch in der Putenmast und den Nachweis antibiotikaresistenter Keime auf Fleischproben ist Putenfleisch nach wie vor beliebt. Sechs Kilogramm verspeist jeder von uns durchschnittlich im Jahr. Doch wie steht es um die Frische abgepackter Ware aus der Kühltheke? Wir haben Putenfleisch auf Keimbelastung und Geschmack getestet.
