First, 90% of Priority One’s glandular’s are sourced from Denmark, and unlike Australian, or New Zealand glands, Denmark is the only country that has been antibiotic, and growth hormone free for all bovine and and porcine glands since 1998. This means that our glands are pure, untreated, and retain the best balance of naturally occurring hormones available on the market. glandular-sources-2014
Second, we source farm to processor, this means that not only do we have the ability to trace our glands to the country, but we retain all of the veterinarian release forms, that trace each and every animal to the farming region, and processor in which they were obtained from. This not only assures us that the glands are indeed from Denmark, but it also assures us that the glands are handled in a timely fashion, allowing them to retain the optimal freshness before processing. Most companies can not trace their glands beyond the country or region of origin.
Third, The link between antibiotics in the food chain and human resistance is striking, look at this quote: from a recent CBS report on Denmark and their success in removing this danger from the food chain.
” I think the Danish and European experience indicate that there will be real and measurable public health benefits,” she said. “There’ll be improvements in food safety and actually in the prevalence of drug resistant infections in people.” says Dr. Ellen Silbergeld
Finally, here is the link to the Australian viewpoint on antibiotics in their meat processing, and food chain, just as an excerpt, it clearly states that they feel it is highly unlikely that antibiotic resistance can develop from antibiotics in the food chain, and that farmers use antibiotics for the health of the animals. Australia’s viewpoint on antibiotic use in animals in the food chain.
