Factory Farming Antibiotic Resistance Problem

Immunologists are raising awareness about the increasing problem of antibiotic-resistant bacteria due to the overuse of antibiotics by the factory farming industry. Because farmed animals are raised under confinement and in great numbers, the spread of disease happens quickly and easily, which is why they’re fed antibiotics and other medicines when they aren’t sick. While beneficial in the short term, this short-sighted practice leads to stronger and more drug-resistant bacteria in the long term.

Causing misery to God's animals comes back to us in different forms, such us the rising of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Being stewards of God's Creation has privileges and responsibilities and we should take this sacred responsibility with a Christ-like heart. Factory Farming is reflecting our lack of care for God's animals, for our health and the state of the environment.
