Nickel in Ohrringen: Jeder sechste Stecker enthält zu viel - SPIEGEL ONLINE
[ German livestock industry is using last stand-antibitoics, without oversight, regulation, accountability, transparency ] Geflügel: Antibiotika wirken immer häufiger nicht, weil Bakterien dagegen resistent werden. Ein Grund ist übermäßiger Einsatz in der Tierhaltung. Das BVL testete 125 Proben von Hähnchen und 84 von Pute auf entsprechende Rückstände. Die gute Nachricht: Der nachweisbare Antibiotikagehalt lag in der Regel deutlich unter den zulässigen Höchstmengen. Zuletzt hatten sich Geflügelproduzenten in einer "Geflügel-Charta" zu einem verantwortungsvollen Umgang mit Antibiotika bekannt.

Scientists call for action on resistance to antibiotics - BBC News
Scientists at the University of Edinburgh are calling for urgent co-ordinated action to tackle the problem of growing resistance to antibiotics. They said the problem is partly caused by the huge amount of antibiotics used in farming. The scientists have argued that action similar to that taken to resist global climate change should be implemented. The report has been published by the Royal Society. It said industrial agriculture relies heavily on the widespread use of antibiotics to improve animal health, welfare and productivity. In Europe, its usage is particularly high in intensive farming such as pig and poultry. However, there are few studies on what threat this poses for human health or on alternatives to current drugs yet there is significant evidence of human resistance to antibiotics.
