The use of low-dose antibiotics in animals to promote growth creates superbugs that become resistant to the medicines we take to treat human illness. Over 80% of antibiotics sold in 2011 were for livestock enhancement. While we know superbugs are being created, we cannot address the issue intelligently because nether drug makers nor livestock processors are required to explain exactly how our medicines are being used on the farm. Without that information, there is no way to create a policy for legitimate needs while protecting the public health.
