LA City Council: Protect Antibiotics for People!

Save Antibiotics for Medicine, Not Factory Farms

We are losing antibiotics for future generations.

To compensate for filthy conditions, factory farms feed low doses of antibiotics to otherwise healthy animals, leading to a serious public health threat. Some bacteria survive these low doses, and, over time, they become resistant to antibiotics.

This overuse of antibiotics is making them less effective when we really need them. Every year, 2 million people contract antibiotic-resistant infections, and at least 23,000 people die from them.

We can do something to stop this.

Los Angeles City Councilmember O'Farrell can protect our public health by introducing the Healthy Farms, Healthy Families Resolution, calling for a ban on the misuse of antibiotics on factory farms!
