        The Trouble with Antibiotics | Antibiotic Resistance and Public Policy

        Learn why the FDA's first attempt to restrict antibiotic use on farms in 1977 was opposed by interest groups and a powerful congressional ally, in this video excerpted from FRONTLINE: The Trouble with Antibiotics. Farm lobbies and interest groups labeled the FDA's 1977 proposal as financially ruinous and pressured Congress to slash the FDA's budget unless the agency provided specific scientific evidence. This resource is part of the FRONTLINE Collection.
