The New York Times is reporting that Washington is introducing a ban on antibiotics given to healthy cows, pigs and chickens (i.e. our food supply).  The farm lobby opposition could make the bill impassable, but at least it’s a start. I am not clear if these antibiotics encompass the hormones given to these animals (or if the antibiotics and hormones are one in the same).

If we could live in a synthetic hormone free food world, I would be very happy. I would also be curious to see if this impacts skin the severity and incidences of acne.  Here’s hoping an enterprising research scientist/MD does a study!
