DALLAS, TX, May 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- NaturalShrimp, Inc. (SHMP) produces shrimp in an enclosed, recirculating salt water system without the use of antibiotics or other toxic chemicals. Why is this so important?
In March 2019, an investigation in Canada found that grocery stores there were selling imported shrimp containing antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The bacteria found, including E.coli and staphylococcus aureus, are resistant to traditional antibiotics. The overuse of antibiotics has turned what once was a hypothetical menace into a real one.
A study by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration found that one-quarter of imported, farm-raised shrimp contained residues of unapproved drugs and unsafe food additives. Consumer Reports found bacteria and illegal antibiotic residues on more than half the raw samples tested, some linked to cancer.
Much of the world’s shrimp are grown in crowded, shallow ponds in India, Thailand, China and Vietnam. “The world’s shrimp are grown in cesspools,” says a famous chef. Bacteria and algae grow, disease can set in, and farmers use drugs and chemicals to stop the disease. A professor of infectious diseases put it this way: “People eating their shrimp cocktail may be getting more than they bargained for.”
More than 700,000 people die each year worldwide due to these “super” bacteria. Says one medical expert: “Multidrug resistance is the biggest threat to modern medicine.” One prediction is that these deaths will soar in the future with more people dying from superbugs than from cancer.
