More from Katie Couric on Antibiotic Broadcast


Yesterday, CBS News’ Katie Couric had former FDA Commissioner Dr. David Kessler and “Fast Food Nation” author Eric Schlosser on @katiecouric to discuss further last week’s two-part series on the overuse of antibiotics in industrial farm animal production. “There are real risks here, using drugs in a non-therapuetic context,” Dr. David Kessler said. “This industry has a record of viciously going after anyone who criticizes their practices,” Schlosser told Couric, recalling the industry suit against talk show host Oprah Winfrey.
