Abstract:

Misuse and overuse of antimicrobials has led to antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and the outbreak of drug-resistant pathogens, which is acknowledged as the greatest hazard to humankind. The vast majority of antibiotics used are administered to farm animals. This is accelerating the evolution of antibiotic resistant bacteria. Increasing demand for protein supplements and animal protein by today's accelerating fitness industry and by the emerging number of fitness freaks is one of the most contributing factors for developing antimicrobial resistance. This is accelerating the evolution of antibiotic resistant bacteria. According to WHO, the new diseases that have evolved and affected humans in the past 15-20 years are majorly those of animal origin (such as Avian influenza. H5N1) Lack of sanitation, and inadequate prevention and control of infections may promote the spread of microbes resistant to antimicrobial treatment. Therefore, use of antimicrobials should be scrutinized in order to establish an effective set of laws and regulations to safeguard not only the well-being of the population but also for the economic stability of a country.
