BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

I don’t like it when scientists feel the need to explain that they’re scared out of their wits, or use exclamation marks.
I also get a little nervous when they say stuff like, “We’re such a dumb species, we don’t deserve to survive on this planet,” because of the great lengths we’re going to just to kill ourselves off.
Nevertheless, I was glued to this shocking piece called simply “Farmacology” in the most recent issue of John Hopkins Magazine on the devastating effects of low-level, non-therapeutic antibiotics in industrial agriculture: http://www.jhu.edu/jhumag/0609web/farm.html.
