Why are they not being held responsible in some way for all the damage they have caused all these years to so many people?

(Gould, 2012) Healthy animals are given antibiotics to keep them healthy. We then ingest the meat and along with it the antibiotics. Germs become immune to those antibiotics causing them to become stronger and stronger.
