    RE: [RC] RE:[RC] Quality of Life (legislating and regulating) - Linda Cowles

    > Considering how strict the standards are for drugs in meat and milk today,
    the concept that these animals "live" on antibiotics is absurd.  Antibiotic
    use was much more prevalent in earlier times, but with the information about
    the problems of residues, the meat and milk industries have had to meet
    carcass and milk standards that are extremely strict.  -- Heidi
    Hey Heidi,
    This is a good point; Orb got out of the business 4 or 5 years ago, the
    industry has changed since then. His comment's were that regulations are
    only as good as the inspectors checking for them for the period of time that
    the inspectors were on site; after that we're trusting the individuals
    managing or tending the animals.
    Do they test meat regularly and enforce these regulations?
