Coalition Demands Less Meds

International consumer groups demand governments lessen the use of antibiotics on farms.

Last week, in Brussels, the Trans Atlantic Consumer Dialogue (TACD) presented a proposal recommending that governments halt the use of antibiotics on factory-farm-raised animals, seeing it as a danger for human health. Antibiotics on animals are commonly used to treat ongoing illnesses, prevent disease, and encourage growth. TACD, which is comprised of European and American consumer advocates, demands that growth-antibiotics be eliminated and the use of non-therapeutic of the drugs be limited. In 2006, the European Union banned the use of growth antibiotics on animals, but the US has no laws prohibiting sub-therapeutic dosages.
