Description
The use of drugs in food animal production has resulted in benefits throughout the food industry; however, their use has also raised public health and safety concerns.

The Use of Drugs in Food Animals provides an overview of why and how drugs are used in the major food-producing animal industries -- poultry, dairy, beef, swine, and aquaculture. The volume discusses the prevalence of human pathogens in foods of animal origin. It also addresses the transfer of resistance in animal microbes to human pathogens and the resulting risk of human disease.

The committee offers analysis and insight into these areas:
-- Monitoring drug residues. The book provides a brief overview of how the FDA and USDA monitor drug residues in foods of animal origin and describes quality assurance programs initiated by the poultry, dairy, beef, and swine industries.
-- Antibiotic resistance. The subcommittee reports what is known about this controversial problem and its potential effect on human health.

The volume also looks at how drug use can be minimized with new approaches in genetics, nutrition, and animal management.
