According to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention, antibiotic resistance is one of the world's most pressing public health threats. Dr. Michael Greger explains that a plant-based diet is the best way to avoid "antibiotic-laden foods" and that eating animal products exposes us to antibiotics residues on a daily basis.

A recent study measured antibiotic levels in participants' urine. Although none of the participants were taking these medications, antibiotics were present, yet after 5 days of a vegetarian diet, antibiotic residue in urine samples was undetectable.
