    This is a comprehensive review of the literature as it relates to human healthcare professionals' attitudes and beliefs about the role animals play in human health. Unfortunately the title gives the impression that it considers the attitudes and beliefs of all practitioners involved in HAB-related activities. However it does not and possibly because the missing practitioners represent an aspect of these activities often taken for granted: maintaining the health and behavior of animals being used for these purposes. While those in the human medical fields may express concern about animals transmitting diseases to some of their human patients, those working in veterinary medicine and animal behavior may be equally concerned that animals placed in certain HAB settings are being exposed to situations that undermine some of these animals' health and behavior.
