In 2012, 32.2 million pounds of antibiotics was sold for feeding livestock, not because they were sick, but because they could stimulate growth, and cloak other diseases that arise from poor quality feed and living conditions.

This infographic highlights the chain-reaction dangers of antibiotic misuse in livestock bred for mass consumption, and how most fast-food chains are turning a blind eye to the potential catastrophe ahead.
