Antibiotic abuse in Factory Farming

One of the craziest things we do is to routinely give antibiotics to farm animals, because industrial farming is so cramped and filthy that they have to continually give antibiotics just to keep epidemics at bay.  This could easily be solved by returning to traditional livestock raising practices, but it would increase costs.  So, we are putting ourselves massively at risk, and undermining our antibiotics` effectiveness, just to save a bit on meat.  What will we do when we can no longer control human infections due to antibiotic resistance from farm animal overuse.  Please sign the petition below:
