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. Right now, 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 Pittsburgh 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 Tuesday to kick off the Healthy Farms, Healthy Families initiative in Pittsburgh!What: Pittsburgh kick-off meeting to end the overuse of antibiotics in factory farmingWhen: Tuesday, January 21, 6:30-7:45 p.m.Where: Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh- East Liberty, Room 3B (130 S.
