Daily use of antibotics in the "meat" we eat.
This is a really long article that I just chose some paragraphs from. I felt it was enough for a chat on the topic. Why do we allow government (I assume it's gov't) to permit farmers to add antibiotics to the daily food of the very animals we eat at...

Clicking on Last Post of Thread
I have a question about the mechanics of this forum. When i click on the 'last post' of a thread, i seem not to be taken directly to it, but to the first post of thread. Clearly this is irritating if it is one with many pages, and slows down the posting...
