The Eat Well Guide

| April 23, 2003

Here?s an astounding fact from the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy?s web site that perhaps you?ve never heard: An estimated 70 percent of all antibiotics produced in the U.S. are used in the agriculture industry. These medications are administered in factory farms to thousands of healthy cows, pigs, and fowl as a ?preventative? for potential infections associated with over-crowded living conditions. As a result, people are getting sick from eating meat contaminated with antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria. Check out IATP?s Eat Well Guide web site to learn how you can help keep antibiotics effective by purchasing antibiotic-free meat, poultry, and fish. This easy-to-navigate site contains a handy state-by-state directory of farms, wholesalers, grocery stores, food co-ops, and restaurants that sell organic and antibiotic-free meat.
