Bad News for Big Pharma

Pollution from antibiotics factories in China and India is fueling the global rise of drug-resistant infections, according to a new report by the environmental advocacy group Changing Markets.
 
The group’s investigators uncovered highly questionable practices by the countries’ drug makers. Investigators charge that the companies routinely release untreated waste into the environment, allowing antimicrobial resistance to develop and spread.
 
The report also links US retailers to the companies and recommends the blacklisting of firms that manufacture antibiotics irresponsibly.
