Philippa joins me to explain the dangers of antimicrobial resistance and why it is called a silent pandemic. She describes statistics regarding antimicrobial resistance and how it contributes to higher deaths per year. She discusses the link between agriculture and antimicrobial resistance and how humans can acquire this condition. Philippa also shares ways we can all help reduce the spread of antimicrobial resistance and the innovations and policies she is hopeful for in the coming years.
"Antimicrobial resistance can actually spread to humans directly through eating animal products and through the environment." - Philippa Thornton
