A huge spike in antibiotic-fed livestock is bringing the superbug epidemic even faster than feared

Prophecy Sign:  Pestilence, plagues and disease



The over-use of antibiotics are creating a situation in which a drug-resistant super-bug could rise up and quickly manifest into a global pandemic.

I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth. Revelation 6:8 NASB

A huge spike in antibiotic-fed livestock is bringing the superbug epidemic even faster than feared 
Developing countries are pumping livestock full of antibiotics at such a startling rate that they are dramatically increasing the risk of creating drug-resistant "super bugs", scientists warned on Monday. Antibiotic use in animals is expected to surge by two thirds globally between 2010 and 2030, while doubling in emerging giants like China, Brazil, India and Russia, according to a Princeton University study. It warned that the practice is pushing us closer to a time when common infections could become a death sentence because they will no longer respond to drugs.
