Supermoms Against Superbugs Advocacy Day

Organization: 

From PewHealth.org:

In 2011, drugmakers sold nearly 30 million pounds of antibiotics in the United States just for chickens, pigs, cows and other food animals. Using these drugs to produce our meat and poultry is breeding dangerous, antibiotic-resistant superbugs that can infect people.

On Tuesday, April 16, more than 50 moms, dads, and other caregivers will participate in the second annual Supermoms Against Superbugs Advocacy Day. These doctors, chefs, farmers, and survivors of drug-resistant infections will call on President Barack Obama, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and Congress to shine a light on industrial farms’ antibiotic use and to put an end to the practices that threaten our health.

Please join thousands of supermoms and superdads across the country to bolster our advocacy day by taking action online.
