Tell Congress to Support Rep. Slaughter's Preservation of Antibiotics for Medical Treatment Act!

The measles outbreak in California has unleashed a storm of heated debate across the country, but there is a much more serious problem that is not getting the attention it warrants. Tuberculosis is becoming resistant to multiple drugs, and many health experts fear it may become “virtually untreatable.” The CDC calls it one of our “most significant global threats.”

The overarching problem that produces these superbugs is antibiotic overuse—both by doctors who rely too heavily on antibiotics and by industrial farming operations.

One immediate measure we could take is to support the new bill from Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY), which would preserve antimicrobial drugs for human use only. Please ask your legislators to support her bill.
