Abstract

The paper gives rather a broad overview on the development of the use of antibiotics and chemotherapeutics from there very beginning until today. The paper deals with scientific facts known in the medical and veterinary community, but also with speculations and “gut-feeling” demands of activist groups that criticise e.g. intensive animal production procedures as “factory farming”.
