Stop The Use of Antibiotics In Factory Farms

80% of all antibiotics in the United States are used to raise meat for human consumption, which has led to the rise of so-called "superbugs" -- human diseases that are resistant to antibiotic treatment.

This shouldn't even be controversial. Simply ban the over use of agricultural antibiotics. Often antibiotics are used to allow animals to live in less than optimal humane conditions. It is also common practice in Asian aquaculture.

Don the point you bring up is well taken. By allowing them to use antibiotics it has also allowed them to cram more animals together. It is in hopes that remove antibiotics which will help in it's own way will also have the indirect consequence of having to once more raise the animals with more space between them.

It makes no sense to use never ending antibiotics, any more than it makes no sense to use growth hormones and feed animals GMO feeds. For people purchasing meat, it is best to avoid factory farms altogether and buy from small pasture raised farms just as many people avoid GMO and pesticide doused veggies.

Thanks Dandelion.....previously signed.......In Australia antibiotics are banned in the food chain..along with many other chemicals.......that are approved for human use......It was a question I was asked many times when managing a Community Pharmacy.....why are we allowed to use this or that.....when they are banned for use on animals and plants......simple answer.......we don't eat humans

But that right my American friends, just keep drinking the kool aid about how exceptional we are.
