The Pew Charitable Trusts has launched a new website on overuse of antibiotics in industrial production of farm animals. It summarizes and references four aspects of the antibiotic problem: the problem itself, the threat to human health, and actions needed to improve oversight and legislation. A good resource! And it links to the report on industrial animal agriculture production done by a committee of which I was a member. Use and enjoy!
