Ask your supermarket to stop antibiotics overuse

Drug resistant bacteria are spreading across the world, threatening to turn previously treatable diseases into deadly killers. 

Part of the problem is that farms are giving large amounts of antibiotics to livestock such as pigs. This allows farmers to keep livestock in unsuitable conditions that would otherwise make them sick. The only beneficiaries of the routine use of antibiotics are the big pharmaceutical and food companies who reap in the profits while putting our health at risk

The routine farm use of antibiotics creates the perfect environment for bacteria to develop resistance to antibiotics. And these resistant bacteria can spread to humans. So when we become ill, the drugs we need might not work

If we don’t take action now, drug-resistant bacteria could be a bigger killer than cancer in 2050.

Tell your supermarket to clear up their supply chains from antibiotics.
