Consumption of meat, milk and eggs is growing fast in many developing and middle-income countries.
Developing countries are pumping livestock full of antibiotics at such a startling rate that they are dramatically increasing the risk of creating drug-resistant "super bugs", Princeton scientists warned.
China’s livestock industry alone could soon be consuming nearly one third of the world’s antibiotics.
The five countries with the largest projected increases in antibiotics consumption are Myanmar (205 percent), Nigeria (163 percent), Peru (160 percent) and Vietnam (157 percent).
Bacteria like E. coli and salmonella are already becoming resistant to antibiotics. Their target: humans.
