Scully/The World Show

Shane Patelakis (#1207)

The current overuse of antibiotics in humans and livestock has lead to concerns about 'superbugs' and how best to deal with them. One of the solutions is emerging from the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island, where businessman and food scientist Shane Patelakis has founded a company, Progressive BioActives, which developed feed supplements for animals that naturally boost their immune systems. The results are improving the health of animals and, in turn, the financial health of their owners. Remarkably, it all starts with used brewer's yeast! [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
