Stop the misuse of antibiotics in food animal production
This petition had 2,373 supporters
Due to the misuse of antibiotics in food animal production, antibiotics are losing their effectiveness in treating human diseases.
Many of the antibiotics used in food animal production, such as penicillins, tetracyclines, macrolides and sulfonamides are identical to, or from the same family as, drugs used in human medicine to cure serious diseases.
Because these classes of antibiotics are similar, bacteria resistant to antibiotics used in animals will also be resistant to antibiotics used in humans.
Without effective antibiotics, modern medical treatments such as surgery and transplants will become all but impossible.
