The Animal Agribusiness Industry Is Putting Us At Risk Of Deadly Disease

The animal agribusiness industry is putting us at risk of deadly disease

The animal agribusiness industry has a secret: To keep animals alive in squalid conditions and to make them grow faster, they pump animals full of antibiotics. This regular antimicrobial use can cause superbugs and human antibiotic-resistance - putting both human and non-human lives at extreme risk of deadly disease outbreaks. Last week I called this industry out in Parliament and highlighted the drastic health risks associated with all systems of confining, slaughtering and consuming animals.
