In late September of 2016, at a United Nations General Assembly, the UN concluded that the biggest threat to human health around the global today is the spread of antibiotic resistant microorganisms, also known as superbugs. The global farmed animal industry is largely responsible for this, as it misuses the antibiotics that were originally designed to save humans from infection by instead using them in vast quantities in animal feed and water. How should the global community respond to this threat?
