Is it OK to use antibiotics in animal agriculture?


The continued use of antibiotics in industrial animal agriculture has put antibiotics used for human medicine at risk, meaning we are entering into a future where we will be unprepared to combat certain diseases. The drugs, which represent 80 percent of antibiotics sold in the US, are predominantly used to prevent disease and promote growth, rather than being used to treat sick animals. The use of unnecessary antibiotics has been linked to the rise of drug-resistant bacteria and infections. These antibiotics are a crucial component to human medicine.
