By Jo Miles

You’ve probably heard about the rise of antibiotic-resistant infections: bacteria that have grown increasingly resistant to medicine. It’s a serious threat… yet not many people realize that factory farms are a huge part of the problem.

Check out the comic below to see how factory farms are putting everyone’s health at risk. Then tell your lawmakers to stop the misuse of antibiotics on factory farms.

  1. Roger Merritt says:

    All for more profit and that’s a shame. To put peoples health at risk for more profit is sinful.

  2. Marjorie Kessler says:

    Stop allowing factory farms to use antibiotics on animals that are not sick!

  3. Cherie says:

    80% of antibiotics used in a year are used in factory farms! Another example of Business being able to make money by endangering the human race! Can’t go on forever — when will people demand to be treated at least as well as a product for sale, making money for people who already have money???
