Good grief, WHY!!!

"Recent research suggests that up to 162,000 Americans die each year from antibiotic-resistant infections."

"Overusing antibiotics in any setting fuels the spread of drug-resistant bacteria."

"...the European Union and Brazil have banned the use of oxytetracycline and streptomycin for use as a pesticide on agricultural plants."

They're CRAZY!!!

While citrus greening is a big problem this decision by the EPA (what a misnomer) is yet another highly irresponsible and shortsighted decision. Bad for the bees too - "Another concern is that the antibiotics will affect bees, which pollinate citrus flowers" ...and "can change the chemistry of soil and water, knocking ecosystems out of balance." Thanks Christeen.
