Published on September 09, 2013 - Fact Sheets: Antibiotics are critical tools for human medicine, yet far more antibiotics are given to food animals than to sick people, and this practice is putting all of us at risk. Agriculture accounts for 80 percent of antibiotics sold in the United States, using drugs from every major class of antibiotics used in human medicine. The way that most antibiotics are used on livestock, such as chickens, pigs and cattle, has been linked to the rise of antibiotic-resistant (AR) bacteria. This means that the bacteria can survive exposure to antibiotic drugs that had previously been effective in killing them.
