Why is handling raw chicken more harmful today than in days past?


Can someone please tell me why handling raw chicken today is so harmful, when years ago we never even heard of any harmful side effects? I don't ever remember taking the precautions I do these days. What are they doing to chicken these days?

    Okay, now that makes sense. Thanks Dremer, I knew it had to be something new, it couldn't just be that chicken of itself is dangerous.

    Thanks Greenhousewife, I've been reading a lot about how the overuse of antibiotics are causing super bugs, but I never really factored in the chicken aspect.
