When it comes to matters of global human health, surely honesty and transparency must always prevail? Unfortunately, history tells us otherwise.
Last week, I wrote a column about the disturbingly high rate of MRSA (a drug-resistant staff bacteria) found in meat. Today, I am pleased to write that the USDA shares my concerns.
MRSA is showing up in random samples of raw pork sold in supermarkets, and to a lesser extent in beef and chicken. Yet these potentially deadly cuts have never been yanked off the shelves.
