Less Antibiotics = Healthier Humans

Australia has a policy that restricts the use of antibiotics used for food animals, and as a result people in Australia are healthier according to a new study.

“An Australian solution to the drug resistance problem has been to prohibit the use of certain antibiotics, called fluoroquinolones, in food animals such as poultry. Such a policy puts Australia in a relatively unique position, since its animal and food production levels are comparable to those of other industrialized nations, but it has avoided using the antibiotics that have been standard in the other countries’ food animal production.”

Hopefully other countries will catch on to this to help people live healthier lives.
