|Farmers Warned To Stop Giving Antibiotics To Animals by Turks: 6:12pm On Nov 08, 2017|
Farmers must stop giving antibiotics to healthy animals because they are fueling the rise of superbugs, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has said.
Considerable amounts of antibiotics are administered to animals in the UK to prevent infections, especially in intensive farming.
The drugs are also given to animals to promote growth in the US and Asia, although the practice has been banned in the EU since 2006.
WORLD LEADERS URGED TO ACT TO PREVENT 'POST-ANTIBIOTIC APOCALYPSE'
Overuse and misuse of the drugs is driving the rising threat of antibiotic resistance, the WHO said. Some kinds of bacteria that cause serious infections in humans have already developed resistance to all available treatments.
England’s chief medical officer Professor Dame Sally Davies has repeatedly warned the world faces a “post-antibiotic apocalypse”, after which routine medical operations would become too dangerous to perform because of the risk of infection.
Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the WHO said: “A lack of effective antibiotics is as serious a security threat as a sudden and deadly disease outbreak.
“Strong, sustained action across all sectors is vital if we are to turn back the tide of antimicrobial resistance and keep the world safe.“
The health body strongly recommends completely banning use of medically important antibiotics in food-producing animals for growth promotion and disease prevention without diagnosis, it said.
*Lack of antibiotics now a 'global health emergency', warns WHO
*Antibiotic-resistance 'being spread globally in animal feed'
*Scientists modify antibiotic to kill superbugs with super-strong drug

What's the alternative?

Herbal. Organic. Folks tend not to stick to the prescription as well as the withdrawal periods.

Turks:That's the truth though drugs seem easiest to administer.

Easiest to administer, easiest to abuse.

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/denmarks-case-for-antibiotic-free-animals/. The major problem is using it for growth promotion and not obeying withdrawal period. But when the animals are sick, you need to treat them. or better still improve their living condition - cleanliness, more space, good feed etc. it will not be popular in this country until people become willing to pay good price for antibiotic free meats.

Gospel truth. A whole lot of abuse is ongoing in that sector.
