    Antibiotic resistance is a global health crisis, driven largely by overuse and misuse of antibiotics. In fact, the World Health Organization recently reported that development of new antibiotics is not happening fast enough to address the threat of multi-drug resistant bacteria.

    Political conversations too often focus on identifying ways to reduce overuse of antibiotics in human health or promoting research into new drugs. There is significantly less willingness to tackle their overuse in animals raised for food, despite the fact that roughly 80 percent of all antibiotics sold in the U.S. are intended for use on farm animals.
