H-440.895 Antimicrobial Use and Resistance

 

Our AMA is opposed to the use of antimicrobials at non-therapeutic levels in agriculture, or as pesticides or growth promoters, and urges that non-therapeutic use in animals of antimicrobials (that are also used in humans) should be terminated or phased out based on scientifically sound risk assessments. (Res. 508, A-01; Reaffirmed: CSAPH Rep. 1, A-11)
