I turn to FWW for information that I can't seem to get elsewhere. They keep me updated on ways I can support issues that matter to me, like the labeling of GE foods, and also helps me make more informed food choices.

Campaign to Save Antibiotics

 RESOLUTIONS PASSED:

13

Communities across the country are coming together save antibiotics. Each pin on the map shows where a city council has passed a resolution calling for an end to the misuse of antibiotics on factory farms.

How You Can Help

The science is clear and the medical community is in agreement – unless we act soon to end the irresponsible use of antibiotics, they won’t work when we really need them. The vast majority of antibiotics sold in the U.S. (80 percent) are used for agriculture and most of these drugs are routinely fed to animals to make them grow faster and compensate for filthy, crowded living conditions on factory farms. Our food system doesn’t need to operate this way, and our communities are coming together to call for a healthier future for our farms and families.
