Applegate, the leading brand of antibiotic-free meat in the U.S., is at the forefront of the movement to stop the misuse of antibiotics in agriculture. Today, nearly 80% of the antibiotics produced in the U.S. go to animals raised for food to make them grow faster and to protect them against disease on unsanitary industrial farms. Unfortunately, this is harmful to humans: antibiotics, once considered a miracle drug for people, are now failing, in part, due to their misuse on animals.
The new documentary, RESISTANCE, examines the crisis of antibiotic resistance and what we can do to turn the tide. It's being screened nation-wide throughout the summer. You can check out the screening schedule here. If you can’t make it to the theater, download the full movie at http://www.resistancethefilm.
Check it out so you too can become a part of the resistance and make the world a safer place.
