      Absolutely appalling to learn that there is so much fecal matter in our meat. Doesn’t fully cooking meat get rid of the bacteria?

  • Toxins

    Why is the food industry so uncaring? There needs to be major regulation

    • pingpongpete

      It’s called money. The gov is the problem, not the solution. There needs to be no subsidies to the meat and dairy industry. Economics will fix the problem but unfortunately lobbying will never end in DC. People will stop buying meat and dairy when they can’t afford it.

    This is bad but not surprising, unfortunately. It is defies reason why we find the animal industry standards acceptable when it is making people sick and killing people. I found your discussion about chicken and Guillain Barre to be particularly interesting. WOW. I’m a nurse and we do see that from time to time–not terribly common but we see it– and it IS like a horror movie. Another really good reason to avoid chicken (how many do people need??)…..By the way, thanks so much for the work you do on your website. It’s the best of it’s kind I have found. Great information!!

    Dr. Greger,
    Would you please comment on the H.pylori bacteria? Is this also caused, from e.coli? I’ve been dealing with this for over two years, despite twice recieving the “gold standard quadruple drug therapy”. Thank you…you’re the BEST!

  • Kathleen Kreiselmeyer

    Does this include natural & organically raised chicken & turkey?

  • William Tell

    Can you provide perspective on mycotoxins in our food supply? Thank you.

    You rock. Every time I turn around you coming up with definitive reasons meat and dairy can kill/make u sick. Been vegetarian but mostly Vegan, going more Vegan since seeing some of the Egg videos.Thank you for all the work you do to give us facts that we can use to increase our lifespans.
