Cities Pass Resolutions Against Non-Therapeutic Use of Antibiotics in Livestock

Cities Pass Resolutions Against Non-Therapeutic Use of Antibiotics in Livestock

Cities around the United States have started passing resolutions calling for a nationwide ban on the non-therapeutic use of antibiotics in raising of meat animals. The cities of Cleveland, Ohio, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Providence, Rhode Island, and Seattle, Washington have all approved similar measures. This is to address the health concerns that the overuse of antibiotics poses on the public. Not only does is pose health risks, but the overuse of antibiotics is thought to create antibiotic resistant superbugs, contributing to the issue even further.
