We should be concerned by the use of antiobiotics in farms even if it can't be definitively linked to antiobiotic resistance in humans. Bacteria evolve very quickly, and complex interactions between different species can be hard to unravel. Given the growth of resistant strains of tuberculosis and other difficult-to-treat infections, we risk the loss of antiobiotics as a powerful tool for treating disease. Do we really want to see that happen?
