Today, Therese Markow and Dr. Alison Franklin discuss the emerging field of agroecosystems and the information we currently have and are currently researching, regarding antibiotic-resistant bacteria and antibiotic resistant genes. Dr. Franklin also explains what happens to the antibiotics in the wastewater and in animal waste that is going out into the environment and the impact on the environment, and, potentially, on human health.
"Essentially, if bacteria were not in the soil, the soil would not be functioning how it should be, we wouldn't be able to grow anything. And, especially with the nitrogen cycle, it wouldn't be happening when some of the crucial steps in the nitrogen cycle are within the soil." — Dr. Alison Franklin
