(NaturalNews) Most people know that conventionally raised animals are regularly given antibiotics. In fact, according to the FDA, 29 million pounds of antibiotics are fed to livestock each year and for drug companies, this adds billions to the bottom line. Most people assume that antibiotics are given to livestock to kill off the germs and pathogens that come from living in the crowded and unsanitary quarters common on factory farms. What they don't know: farmers really use antibiotics to make the animals fat.

According to the Des Moines Register, antibiotics are routinely added to the animal's food to fatten the animals and save on feed costs. This, of course, boosts the farmer's profits. Antibiotics are well known to kill off healthy gut bacteria, and the absence of the animals' gut bacteria performs the fattening task by disrupting how foods, particularly fats, are metabolized. It turns out that farmers know if you kill off the gut flora, it'll lead to fat animals. And it begs the question: what effects are antibiotics having on the humans that continually consume them in animal flesh and also take them as drugs? In a nation that struggles with obesity problems, it's actually a pretty serious question.

Not only do antibiotics make the animals fat, they also bring disease. Like in humans who kill off their healthy bacteria, the animals are having health problems too. In a University of Iowa study, 70 percent of pigs and 64 percent of workers on several Iowa and Western Illinois farms had a new strain of MSRA. These farms used antibiotics routinely, and on antibiotic-free farms no MRSA was found. This, of course, refutes arguments that antibiotics lead to health because it's becoming more and more obvious that they actually lead to disease if the healthy bacteria aren't replenished afterward. We've also yet to see a study on what exactly eating MRSA ridden pigs and other animals can do to a person. If nothing else, it's pretty gross.

In humans, a strain of healthy gut bacteria works with a hormone that regulates fat development and hunger. Antibiotics are wiping out this bacterial strain in humans, and scientists have theorized that the loss of this bacteria might "be contributing to the current epidemics of early-life obesity, type 2 diabetes and related metabolic syndromes." Antibiotics may be touted as miracle drugs, but when they cause more harm than good in the long run, they're not much of a miracle. Real miracle antibiotics are more like coconut oil and raw organic garlic, which are both well known to kill the bad bacteria while leaving our healthy bacteria intact. Antibiotics have been added to animal feed since 1946.

About the author

Kim Evans is a natural health writer and author of Cleaning Up! The Ultimate Body Cleanse. Cleaning Up! offers deep cleansing and using methods in this book, people have gotten rid of dozens of different types of health problems, as well as just losing excess weight, thinking more clearly, and feeling better.

Kim's next book chronicles events in her life that happen to match patterns in the Bible. She's also found three places in the Bible that tell us its about these patterns and even asking you to match them.
Here's a little from the upcoming book...
In Isaiah 22:20, it says, "And it must occur in that day that I will call my servant, namely Eliakim." But, because these prophecies are cryptic and they aren't meant to be understood until they are understood, it's only the last three letters.
A few lines later, it says, "From the land of Kittim it has been revealed to them."
Here, you just take out any three middle letters, and again, it's the name of the person bringing you this message, or the sacred secret of the prophecy. Actually, if you take those two passages, Kim is about the only name you can get from both of them.
In Numbers 1:1 1:18, it's talking about "the family" and mentions Pagiel. It also twice mentions February 1st, (Kim's birthday) and then says that the youngest is 20 years old. Kim's little sister Paige is currently 20 years old.
In Chronicles 1 11:20 it mentions the brother of Joab and then in the same sentence uses the word brandishing. Kim's middle name is Jo and her older sister's name is Brandi. There are other patterns to her sisters too but these sort of mention them by name.
Of course, it helps if you know that there is a magical spiritual reality available that comes deep cleansing and often major dietary upgrades. It's also why Jesus was teaching the same thing, if you find his teachings in the Essene Gospel of Peace. In this text, he even says things like, "You'll never see the father unless you clean your colon." But, this is paraphrased...
In the Bible Jesus says things more like, happy are those who wash their robes, as they can enter the tree of life. The tree of life is elsewhere explained as God's paradise. He also said, first clean the inside of the cup and then the outside will also be clean.
