    In the future….Sociologists and anthropologists (and let me coin a new are of study called “nationologists”, since we as a nation seem to be so good at screwing up the food supply chain) are going to have a field day as they study our past habits, use, misuse and protocols surrounding what foods we shove into our mouths.

    Well said gfortcher!

    An obvious follow up question is whether meat eaters are more likely to get sick from these pathogens and/or take longer to recover? Or did I miss the video proving that?

    Hi BCPveg,
    Try this video http://nutritionfacts.org/videos/mrsa-in-u-s-retail-meat/

    If we are at risk just being around these pathogens, allowing them into our system is asking for it! Russian roulette lifestyle!

    Why do you not hear about what the CDC says about these situations? This is so sensational sounding you would think the news media would be all over it. But then the news writers would have to confront their own eating habits in light of such science. Guess they don’t want to.
