The super-bugs are coming, and they're being bred on factory farms.
It's become a common practice on factory farms to feed livestock regular, low doses of antibiotics even when they're not sick, in part because their living conditions are so horrifyingly unhealthy. The problem is that some bacteria survive these low doses, and over time, they become resistant to antibiotics...even the antibiotics that we use to treat diseases in humans.
These antibiotic-resistant "super-bugs" pose a serious threat to human health. You can help stop them by telling Congress to put an end to using medically important antibiotics on healthy livestock.
