Dr. Issmat Kassem is an Assistant Professor of Food Microbiology Safety at the University of Georgia. He sounds the alarm about an antibiotic-resistant gene called MCR-1 that's making its way from the poultry industry into humans at an alarming rate and how this will lead to millions of deaths across the Middle East, Asia and the world. He explains why Colistin should be banned from agriculture and why we should be investing in alternatives to antibiotics. MySay link: https://hakawati.fm/mysay
