This is the text (if you need help).

Researchers say people could be in danger from superbugs if they eat undercooked meat. Antibiotics in our food are making bugs stronger. The use of antibiotics in farming is making our medicines weaker. There is a huge amount of antibiotics in farming. This could be dangerous to people's health. Farmers should reduce the amount of antibiotics they give to their animals. This is important if we want our life-saving medicines to work well.

Researchers want to reduce the antibiotics given to farm animals. The head of the research said it was unbelievable that in many countries animals have more antibiotics than humans. This is a big risk for everyone. People could get ill from superbugs if they ate rare or undercooked meat. People need to make sure they cook meat properly. If people do not cook meat well, they know where the meat comes from.

Back to the antibiotics lesson.
