And the rise of drug-resistant bacteria is not only fostered by the direct use, or misuse, of antibiotics in hospitals or for individual therapy; nowadays, bacteria also mutate in animal environments through the widespread practice of adding penicillin and tetracyclin to animal feed to improve the growth rate of healthy animals, to reduce the amount of feed used in their diet, for animal treatment during illness, and to curb recurrent infectious outbreaks caused by livestock living in cramped and unsanitary situations.
