Chicken Might Put You At Risk Of An Incurable Bladder Infection

Looks like it might be time to cut back your chicken intake. Medical
researchers have linked perpetual and painful bladder infections to an
antibiotic-resistant superbug found in grocery store meat, particularly
According to the FDA, this has to do with the fact that over 80% of antibiotics sold in the U.S. are sold to livestock, particularly chickens. The chicks are injected with large quantities of antibiotics from the time they are in the egg to the time that they are slaughtered.
Not only do these injections cause them to grow unnaturally large for consumption, the chicken industry insists that this is their way of "protecting" them from diseases that they could contract from being raise in their cramped living environments.
And the reason why women are more at risk is because men get bladder
infections at a much lesser rate, which means women are the most likely contractors of the
superbug. And according to the statistics, over 8 million women could be at risk.
Meanwhile, reps for the chicken industry have denied the whole thing since there isn't any solid proof just yet. But scientists have long been looking for a link between bladder infections and commercial meat products, so this superbug study might be just the evidence they need to change their ways.
