Tell McDonald’s to stop supersizing antibiotic resistance

Treating livestock with antibiotics is leading to a rise in drug-resistant superbugs

McDonald’s is pumping antibiotics into the meats used to make its famous burgers. The World Health Organization has warned that this practice could push us into a ‘post antibiotic era,’ in which the drugs we rely on for routine medical treatments no longer work. Investors have spoken out about these concerns. But McDonald’s isn’t listening.
