Antimicrobial resistance and factory farming: is there a link?

Alistair Driver (Farmers Guardian) here reviews a new report from Compassion in World Farming, the Soil Association and Sustain.  He concludes by quoting NFU Vice-President Gwyn Jones: “There is a far greater problem in human medicine with the overuse and misuse of antibiotics”  and Professor Butler: “It is not tenable to regard animal medicine as having marginal relevance to human health.”  Comments very welcome!
