FDA Suggests Less Use of Antibiotics in Farmed Animals

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) urged farmers to stop giving antibiotics to farmed animals in order to speed their growth.

Antibiotic overuse has enabled modern animal agriculture industry to keep animals under tremendous stressful and confined conditions. This has caused serious health problems to humans (antibiotic resistance, creation of new viruses, etc.), a voluminous amount of suffering to God’s farmed animals and environmental pollution. As stewards of God's Creation there is no room for us to support this industry. It is imperative for humanity to transition to a plant-based diet if we want generations to come to inherit a healthy planet.
