The Sobering Reality of Antibiotic Overuse

This sobering read exposes the extremely irresponsible practice of overusing antibiotics in animals raised for food. About 80% of all antibiotics sold in the world are given to healthy food animals to help promote growth and allow cheaper production methods, which in turn leads to the development of antibiotic resistant superbugs. Public health experts see signs that we are returning to a time when children died of pneumonia and other illnesses since bacteria mutate faster than we create new antibiotics.

Please visit Big Ag's big lie: factory farms, your health and the new politics of antibiotics

As long as we all have cheap, factory-farmed meat, eggs and dairy, big ag, pharmaceutical companies and the government don’t seem to care about antibiotic resistant bugs, animal welfare, or environmental devastation. This is why it’s so important that the clear message comes from the consumer and a coalition of health, animal and environment advocacy organizations because the change is not coming from the top down.
