A Small Step to Reduce the Overuse of Antibiotics in Farmed Animals

Once again the issue of overuse of antibiotics in farmed animals is making headlines because of the concerns this overuse might promote the development of drug-resistant bacteria. In response, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) plans to restrict cephalosporins, a family of antibiotics commonly used to treat livestock, starting April 5. To many concerned people, this move is long overdue.

Please visit FDA to limit antibiotics to treat livestock to prevent 'superbugs':

The devastating effects of the irresponsible use of antibiotics by agribusiness are yet to be seen. Unfortunately, the factory farming industry is powerful enough to do much damage in God’s Creation with little o no oversight. This is why is imperative that consumers become the check and balance of such industries by withdrawing their support.
