FDA Sued Over Antibiotic Overuse

About 70% of all the antibiotics in America are given to factory farmed animals in order to promote their growth and keep them alive in filthy, hyper-confined conditions. The undeniable and obvious consequence has been the emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Therefore, the Natural Resources Defense Council, Union of Concerned Scientists, and other health and science groups filed suit this past week against the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for allowing factory farms to continue with this irresponsible and unethical practice. This coalition lawsuit "will force the FDA to pull its head out of the sand and address this serious threat to public health now."

For decades, the FDA and the corporations that own factory farms have been gambling with human health for the sole purpose of profit and power. It is time that consumers take a stand for their own health, the environment and the unnecessary abuse of sentient beings, and stop supporting the animal agriculture industry. I think consumers can produce a more effective outcome than the FDA with its invested interest in the industry.
