Watch This Video, Then Tell Congress to End the Overuse of Antibiotics on Factory Farms



Factory farms are a breeding ground for bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics — superbugs — that are creating a serious public health crisis.
Today, 80% of antibiotics used in the U.S. are used in agriculture. It is now common practice on factory farms to feed animals regular, low doses of antibiotics even when they're not sick — largely to compensate for stressful, crowded, filthy conditions.

Many of these antibiotics are the same drugs that we rely on to treat infections in people.
2 million Americans experience antibiotic-resistant infections every year, resulting in at least 23,000 deaths.

There's a solution, and you can help. Tell your members of Congress to end the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms.

PAMTA/PARA to ban unnecessary antibiotics use in livestock

Dear [Congress members],

I urge you to pass the bill to stop the use of unnecessary antibiotics in livestock -- HR 1150, the Preservation of Antibiotics for Medical Treatment Act (PAMTA) and S 1256, the Preventing Antibiotic Resistance Act (PARA).



Please pass PAMTA/PARA to protect the effectiveness of our antibiotics and prevent the creation of dangerous new resistant bacteria.

Sincerely,
