Poison Chickens

There is a two part interview with Michael Greger.M.D. over at Huffpo that I encourage everyone to read concerning the risk we all face as a result of factory farming. The article blames E. coli and salmonella on factory farms. Here is just a sample from it;
When medical researchers at the University of Minnesota took more than 1,000 food samples from multiple retail markets, they found evidence of fecal contamination in 69% of the pork and beef and 92% of the poultry samples. Nine out of ten chicken carcasses in the store may be contaminated with fecal matter. And half of the poultry samples were contaminated with the UTI-causing E. coli bacteria.
And what are you having for dinner......
