Petition: I'm joining NRDC to protect my health. Experts believe antibiotic misuse on industrial farms is contributing to the spread of antibiotic-resistant superbugs. When industrial farms rely on antibiotics instead of healthier living conditions for the animals, they end up spreading antibiotic resistant bacteria. We have a right to know if industrial farm practices are putting our health at risk.
Demand to know what's in our food
