Re: “We can ill afford to live in a ‘post-antibiotic’ world” (editorial, 9-22).

The editorial details an accelerating rise in harder-to-kill bad bacteria in large part due to the increased use of antibiotics in farm animal feedlots. It suggests ways the average person can fight the rise of “superbugs.”

The editorial missed a big safety measure we each easily can do right now: Quit eating so much unhealthy meat polluted with antibiotics and growth hormones. Switching to a plant-based diet has been proven to prolong and increase the quality of our lives. For our own safety, take more care as to what we eat.
