Vegetarians and Meat-eaters unite: Stop the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms


When it comes to reckless overuse of antibiotics on factory farms, we've all got a stake in the game -- even if you don't eat meat.

Whether you eat meat at every meal or wouldn't touch a steak with a 10-foot fork, it's time to stand together for our health and against the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms.

Subject: Stop the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms
I'm concerned that the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms is putting our health at risk. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns that, every year, more than 2 million Americans fall ill from drug-resistant infections.

The World Health Organization, American Medical Association, American Public Health Association, and other leading medical groups all warn that the routine use of antibiotics on livestock presents a serious and growing threat to human health.

Please take steps to protect public health and set stringent guidelines for antibiotic use on healthy animals.
