THE SELF WORTH DIET – Because Low Self Esteem Is Fattening

End the Overuse of Antibiotics on Factory Farms

From Food & Water Watch:

Factory farms are a breeding ground for bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics — superbugs — that are creating a serious public health crisis. Today, 80% of antibiotics used in the U.S. are used in agriculture. It is now common practice on factory farms to feed animals regular, low doses of antibiotics even when they’re not sick — largely to compensate for stressful, crowded, filthy conditions.

Many of these antibiotics are the same drugs that we rely on to treat infections in people. 2 million Americans experience antibiotic resistant infections every year, resulting in at least 23,000 deaths.

There’s a solution and you can help. Tell your members of Congress to end the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms.

Please sign the petition below. We’ll deliver your signature directly to your members of Congress.
