Feed "forbidden resistance"

A few days ago, the Ministry of Agriculture and villages issued notice No. 194, "in order to maintain the safety of animal-derived food and public health in China, it has decided to stop the production, import, operation and use of some pharmaceutical feed additives, and adjust the relevant management policies." At the same time, "change the management mode of anti-coccidial and traditional Chinese medicine feed additives, no longer issue the approval number of 'veterinary medicine', change it to 'veterinary medicine' approval number, and the change of approval number will be completed before July 1, 2020".

The announcement requires that from January 1, 2020, all kinds of feed additives for growth-promoting drugs except traditional Chinese medicine will be withdrawn, veterinary drug production enterprises will stop producing, imported veterinary drug agents will stop importing corresponding veterinary drug products, and the corresponding veterinary drug product approval number and imported veterinary drug registration certificate will be cancelled at the same time. The corresponding veterinary drug products that have been produced and imported can be circulated until June 30, 2020.

Why is it necessary to "ban resistance" and "limit resistance"? After the prohibition of resistance, what kind of impact will it have? A reporter from the Beijing News interviewed Wu Shugeng, a researcher at the Feed Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, who said, "since the early 1950s, drug additives have been used in animal husbandry as feed additives. Over the past 50 years, animal products have changed from luxury to cheap and high-quality daily food, and the contribution of feed and drug additives is undeniable. However, with the passage of time, the abuse of antibiotics has also caused a variety of problems, such as drug residues, bacterial drug resistance, environmental pollution and so on.
