Pew Charitable Trusts vs. Animal Drugs
If you take the Washington, DC Metro this month, be sure to look for the posters at the Capitol South and Union Station stops (the ones closest to the Senate and House staff offices). The ads are part of the Pew Charitable Trusts’ Campaign on Human Health and Industrial Farming, aimed at reducing the use of antibiotics in animal agriculture. Take a look at who is “hogging our antibiotics” and encourage your representatives to do so too.
