The World Health Organization is urging countries to restrict the use of antibiotics in food animal production. Food producers in many countries feed low .   By this time everybody knows -- or ought to know -- that the non-therapeutic use of antibiotics in farm animals is a threat to human health. Using antibiotics to .

  Antibiotic resistance is a major global public health threat. Illnesses that were once easily treatable with antibiotics * are becoming more difficult to cure and more expensive to treat. Infections from common antibiotic-resistant bacteria, such as Salmonella, can cause more severe health outcomes than infections with bacteria that are not resistant to antibiotics. Although they have improved the health of countless numbers of humans and animals, antibiotics have been losing their effectiveness since the beginning of the antibiotic era. The use of antibiotics in raising food animals has contributed significantly to the global pool of antibiotic resistant organisms.

The World Health Organization says farms should end the routine use of antibiotics in animals raised for food. Consumer Reports explains how this could decrease the risk of superbugs. This is a great concern for public health. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recognized this concern, updating its regulations to reduce the unnecessary use of antibiotics in livestock.

All animal species in general and food-producing animals, in particular, are commonly exposed to antibiotics to treat and prevent infectious diseases or to promote : Magdy Moheb El-Dein Saad, Mohamed Bedair M.

Ahmed. The use of drugs in food animal production has resulted in benefits throughout the food industry; however, their use has also raised public health safety concerns.

The Use of Drugs in Food Animals provides an overview of why and how drugs are used in the major food-producing animal industries--poultry, dairy, beef, swine, and aquaculture. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is increasing pressure on animal producers to reduce the use of antibiotics out of concern for animal and human health.

FDA regulatory changes include giving veterinarians control over antibiotic use in animals rather than leaving control in the hands of animal feed : Rocco Pallin. The use of antimicrobial agents in food animals has caused concern regarding the impact these uses have on human health.
