Livestock farms and local residents

In 2012 the Health Council of the Netherlands issued an advisory report on the health risks of living near livestock farms. According to the Council the data available at that time had limited predictive power. Further research could create greater clarity. In the mean time, an additional study has been carried out to a significant extent. Following on from this, the Health Council received another request for advice. The main question is how strong the evidence is for health risks around livestock farms in the light of the latest data.
