    I heard a discussion about this on the radio recently. They said that 80% of the antibiotics in the US are given to livestock.

    That's cause they kept the animals in unnatural poor conditions so are stressed and prone to illness. Ive heard the conditions can be so poor that the animals die if not given "preventive" antibiotics. All the more reason why people should support petitions against some of the commerical farming practices, it doesnt just affect the animals but affects us too!

    Faster growth is also a reason for giving antibiotics to livestock - maybe the most important factor.
