Human and Animal Health (USA) – From American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Podcast: Veterinarians play a prominent role in making sure our food supply is healthy and safe to eat by preventing the spread of foodborne illness among our livestock. Doing so not only keeps the animals healthy, but it also reduces the risk of human exposure to foodborne illnesses.  In this podcast, W. Ron DeHaven, DVM, MBA, chief executive officer of the AVMA discusses the link between human and animal health and expresses the AVMA’s carefully considered perspectives about the use of antibiotics in food producing animals (i.e. livestock) relative to this practice’s “resistance development” concerns.  Please listen to Dr. DeHaven by clicking the “MP3” in the following link.
