Drug Resistance, Chicken And 8 Million UTIs
What will afflict one in nine American women in the next year, cost $1 billion in healthcare spending, and could be gaining antibiotic resistance from poultry farming? 
If you guessed UTIs (urinary tract infections), you’d be right.
UTIs are not only uncomfortable, they are potentially very dangerous if untreated. More and more of them are caused by bacteria resistant to common antibiotics. Turkey and chicken products that come from poultry farms where these antibiotics are overused show the same pattern of drug-resistant bacteria. Maryn McKenna has full details of the months-long investigation here.
