Always Providing You With Ongoing Information

The primary objective of the meeting is to summon and maintain strong national, regional and international political commitment in addressing antimicrobial resistance comprehensively and multi-sectorally, and to increase and improve awareness of antimicrobial resistance.

Antibiotics is regularly pumped into  livestock, which significantly contributes to the development of antibiotic resistance.  Vegans may not realize is that omitting animal products doesn’t absolve them of any responsibility for the rise of antibiotic resistant superbugs, at least as it relates to the food supply. Fruits and vegetables are also doused with  antibiotics, too (although its at a lower rate than meat). Unless you strictly eat organic, your food is contributing to a problem that threatens to send us back to the dark ages of medicine, where every cut or scrape could be life-threatening.Even if you keep a strict, organic, vegan diet, and never take antibiotics unless you absolutely need them, you’re not immune from the superbug infection. You can do everything ostensibly right, and it still won’t stop antibiotic resistance.

Positive news is that major food chains like McDonald’s, Subway, and Perdue have dedicated to switch to antibiotic-free meat in their restaurants, due to public demand.
