Never. Eating. Pork. Again.

A recent Op-Ed piece, Our Pigs, Our Food, Our Health, by Nicholas D. Kristof (NY Times) pretty much sealed the deal for me. I sent this article out to some friends earlier this week and have been debating about whether or not to post it to the blog. It's, well, in a word: gross. However in light of President Obama's recent promise to "bolster and reorganize the nation’s fractured food-safety system" I am hopeful that methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, aka: flesh eating bacteria, in pigs will be addressed.

I agree that flesh eating bacteria is absolutely vial! I have never been to much of a pork eater, but after reading this i think i will stay that way even more...
