Rep. Slaughter Reintroduces Bill to Help Fight Antibiotic Resistance Crisis by Combating Misuse of Antibiotics in Animal Agriculture
Date:3/17/2009

ommend Representative Slaughter for her continued leadership and we urge Congress to move quickly and pass this critical legislation."

The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) estimates that 70% of all the antibiotics used each year in the United States are fed without a prescription to livestock and poultry -- not to treat illness, but to promote slightly faster growth and to compensate for crowded, stressful and unhygienic conditions at industrial-scale livestock and poultry facilities. This practice encourages the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria that are transferred to humans via our food, air and water. Children and the elderly are especially vulnerable to such bacteria, as they are prone to weaker immune systems.

PAMTA, which is widely supported by the public health, medical, sustainable agriculture, and animal welfare community, is co-sponsored by 20 Members of Congress. More than 350 groups have endorsed the legislation, including the American Medical Association, the Infectious Diseases Society of America, and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
