I guess this isn't surprising, but I'd not thought about it.

Uh-oh: Plants uptake antibiotics

Scientists at the University of Minnesota have been evaluating the impact of antibiotic feeding in livestock production on the environment.

I hope organic farms will use only manure from organic livestock after this finding.

Does anyone know if studies have been done on up-take of growth hormones?  In my own personal opinion I blame them (at least partially) for the increase in obesity these days. I hadn't concidered the posibility of up-take in plants as a factor as well as direct consumption of milk and meat.

I have no idea. This study was actually linked over on slashfood, and it's the first I've seen. But I bet there are some other studies being planned.

Like you, I had not thought of it. However, it isn't surprising.

What worries me too, is the people that are allergic to certain antibiotics.  Especially since sulfa was spefically mentioned, and my mother and grandmother both are allergic!
