Abstract

This publication comprises the proceedings of a scientific meeting to review environmental aspects of respiratory diseases in intensive pig and poultry houses, including the implications for human health. The main factors discussed were gases, dust and biological agents and consideration was given to prevention and control techniques. Existing legislation in the Community was reviewed and a list of research priorities elaborated. The impact of intensive housing on human and animal health deserves more support for research in future.
