Factory farms are playing by their own rules when it comes to antibiotics -- putting the medicines we rely on in jeopardy.
Factory farms are playing by their own rules when it comes to antibiotics — putting the medicines we rely on in jeopardy. 80% of antibiotics in the US are used on factory farms, primarily to make animals grow faster and to compensate for living filthy conditions. This is not how our antibiotics should be used, and it's making these life-saving medicines less effective when we really need them. That’s why we're launching a local effort here in Providence to demand federal action to ban the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms. Join us to hear more about this critical public health issue, and how you can help rein in the rampant use of antibiotics on factory farms. Sign up below to join us on Wednesday to kick off the Healthy Farms, Healthy Families initiative in Providence!What: Providence kick-off meeting to end the overuse of antibiotics in factory farmingWhen: Wednesday, January 22, 7-8 p.m.Where: West Broadway Neighborhood Association (1560 Westminster Street, Providence RI 02909)
