One of the things I love about the University of Reading is the numerous lunch-time seminars you can feed your mind with on a weekly basis. About a year ago the Center for Food Security (CFS) at the University of Reading invited Professor La Ragione from University of Surrey to give a seminar. His talk entitled “Antibiotic Resistance in the Food Chain; a One health issue” was fascinating. I left the seminar room thinking I had to meet him again and discuss what he had just shared with us.
Here is an audio interview where Prof. La Ragione tells us a bit more about the use of antibiotics in farming and possible alternative solutions to the increasing issue of antibiotic resistance.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
