The Eat Well Guide

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.
