A panel of experts gathered in New York to discuss the most pressing questions in modern agriculture. In part 2 we have brought together specialists in the fields of antibiotics, veterinary medicine, and human health such as:
How are antibiotics used in food production?
What more is needed to educate consumers about how their food is grown and raised?
What are the potential effects on humans that consume animals treated with antibiotics?
