A new relationship with animals, nature and each other.

Aussie Health Expert Warns about Antibiotics

The president of the Australian Society for Infectious Diseases, Dr. Thomas Gottleib, is worried about the flow-on effects on the food chain.

“We’re becoming increasingly convinced that antibiotic use in food producing animals eventually leads to resistance in humans as well.”

He says heavy use of antibiotics in animal health, agriculture and the medical world is feeding antibiotic resistance in humans.

“There was an incredible use of antibiotics both in the medical world, in animal health and in agriculture, and all this large volume of use is feeding antibiotic resistance both in Australia and worldwide.”
