How does the use of antibiotics in food-producing animals lead to antimicrobial resistance in humans? - Frederic Versavel, Proviron:
The use of antibiotics in farming leads to AntiMicrobial Resistance (AMR) in humans and directly affects human health. Proviron -being a chemical company with esterification as core technology- has developed, tested, produced and marketed several animal health improving products helping to reduce the use of antibiotics in feed.
