Serious Concerns about the Overuse of Antibiotics in Factory Farming

The excessive use of antibiotics in animal agriculture is increasing the number of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Just in the European Union 25,000 patients die every year from infections caused by drug resistant bacteria, and The World Health Organization says drug use in farm animals plays a 'significant role' in spreading antibiotic-resistant salmonella and campylobacter infections in humans.

The unthinkable is actually happening. Thousands of people die every year of infections that could be treated if antibiotics were not used irresponsibly by the factory farming industry. I think it is time for Christians to spend less time praying for healing and spend more time paying attention to their eating habits. Supporting the factory farming industry only sends the message that corporations can continue engaging in unethical behavior that brings sickness and suffering to God's Creation.
