The overuse of antibiotics in humans and animals has led to a plague of drug-resistant infections that killed more than 65,000 people in the U.S. last year – more than prostate and breast cancer combined.
America’s farmers give their pigs, cows and chickens about 8 percent more antibiotics each year… 13 percent of the antibiotics administered on farms last year were fed to healthy animals to make them grow faster.
Antibiotics also save as much as 30 percent in feed costs among young swine.
Sloppy. Sloppy. Sloppy.
