International Organizations Working to Raise Antibiotic Resistance Awareness
The routine use of antibiotics in the feed and water of otherwise healthy chickens, cattle, and pigs since the 1950s has created a breeding ground for antibiotic resistant bacteria.
Antibiotics have played a major role in protecting public health and have saved millions of lives. However, inappropriate use of antibiotics now threatens their effectiveness, the ability of humans and animals to fight off infection, and even costs lives.
Food Tank introduces us to international organizations working to raise our awareness of antibiotics.
