Help stop antibiotic abuse

Almost 80 percent of antibiotics sold in the United States are given to animals on factory farms. Not to treat sick animals, but to compensate for the dirty, crowded conditions the animals are raised in. The routine overuse of antibiotics creates bacteria resistant to known drugs. Illnesses caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria kill 70,000 Americans every year. If we continue to create bugs resistant to antibiotics, we will be in serious trouble.

Help stop this antibiotic abuse. Sign this petition to stop farm animal antibiotic abuse.
