New Report Says FDA Allowed ‘High Risk’ Antibiotics to Be Used on Farm Animals

Experts worry that the overuse of antibiotics on livestock is leading to resistant-strains of bacteria.

Antibiotic resistance claims 23,000 lives a year in the U.S.—and the overuse of antibiotics in livestock plays a role. Is the FDA doing all it can to protect Americans?

Bacteria mutate in the environment. When antibiotics are overused, bacteria adapt, and antibiotic-resistant strains survive. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that antibiotic-resistant bacteria kill 23,000 people a year in the United States. Health officials warn that if something is not done, eventually antibiotics will not be able to treat simple infections in humans.

Makes you worry a little? Remember it's sometimes easier for people to overlook what's going on around us rather then think about what may happen because of what's going on around us.
