Staph likely in three billion food animals per year — in the USA (47%)
Now that Thanksgiving is behind us and before you rush out to buy your Christmas turkey, you may wish to review this informative video (3 minutes) by Dr. Michael Greger. He reports on a study conducted in May of 2011 regarding the frequency of staph bacteria in various kinds of meat in the USA.
While none of our meats are “staph free,” guess which one scored the worst? Turkey — with an incredible score of 77%. Yes, if you’re planning to eat turkey this Christmas, you have almost eight chances in ten of getting one containing staph bacteria.
How about a definition of staph? a bacterium of a genus that includes many pathogenic kinds that cause pus formation, esp. in the skin and mucous membranes.
