If you are a meat-eater, it’s better for your health to buy antibiotic-free and chemical-free meat. This might seem difficult to source considering that almost 80% of the animals raised for food are given antibiotics to prevent them from getting sick and to keep them growing at a much faster rate. Antibiotics are generally used for treating or preventing infections. However, excessive use of them can lead to a number of health problems. According to various researchers, when antibiotics are overused, they end up becoming less effective for both humans as well as animals. The reason is that the bacteria that are frequently exposed to antibiotics develop a high resistance to them.
Despite warnings by global health experts, the use of antibiotics by livestock farmers is still very much prevalent. Many experts have claimed that the overuse of antibiotics on farms is making germs more drug-resistant as well as making our medications less effective against various infections, which has become a great concern for public health in recent times.
The experts have also claimed that one can minimize the risk by consuming chemical free & antibiotic-free produce. But finding antibiotic-free poultry and meat has always been challenging. A Bangalore based startup called “FreshToHome” has paved the way in providing the consumers with the best antibiotic-free, chemical-free and fresh poultry, meat & seafood right at their doorsteps.
