The "Danish Experiment" is a source of pride for that country's 17,000 farmers. Unlike industrial farms in the U.S., which use antibiotics to promote growth and prevent disease, farmers in Denmark use antibiotics sparingly -- only when animals are sick.
The experiment to stop widespread use of antibiotics was launched 12 years ago, when European studies showed a link between animals who were consuming antibiotic feed every day and people developing antibiotic resistant infections from handling or eating that meat.
Since the ban, the Danish pork industry has grown by 43 percent -- making it one of the top exporters of pork in the world. All of Europe followed suit in 2006. But the American Pork Industry doesn't want to, as it raises the cost of producing pork by $5 more for every 100 pounds of pork brought to market.
