Cameron Harsh, Senior Manager for Organic & Animal Policy at Center for Food Safety
Thanksgiving is just a week away, and it begs the question: will we still be thankful for antibiotics this time next year?
This week is the World Health Organization’s annual “World Antibiotics Awareness Week” raising global awareness of the antibiotic resistance crisis and encouraging action to preserve the efficacy of important medicines to fight life-threatening infections. 2017’s theme is “Seek advice from a qualified healthcare professional before taking antibiotics.”
