From food systems insider:

MYTH: In countries where low-level antibiotics are banned, poultry have extremely low levels of pathogens.

FACT: A December, 2008 report from Switzerland, where on-farm, low-level antibiotic use is banned, found a surprising 90% of chickens infected with Campylobacter. Campylobacter is one of the most common causes of diarrheal illness in the U.S., and is usually contracted from eating raw or undercooked poultry meat, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

Thanks dun.

Who wants to eat chicken that's not cooked anyway? Let's just drug them and serve them medium-rare :dunce:

So, does it follow that there is a high incedence of diarrhea in Switzerland? This kind of info is invaluable to the makers of diarrheal remedys such as Pepto Bismol or Immodium or Kaopectate. I bet they know the answer based on national per capita sales figures.
