Thought-Provoking Links

(Plus a gratuitous happy dog to cheer you up)

For your reading and listening pleasure

Lou Dobbs interviewing my cousin about his book

The sad story of NY State's budget cuts to agricultural programs

Excellent column about the true agenda of HSUS

Modern hog production results in safer food "The most notable findings were that changes in swine production methods have been associated with the virtual elimination of the risk of the foodborne parasites Taenia solium, Trichinella spiralis and Toxoplasma gondii from pigs reared on modern intensive farms."

The virtual elimination of Trichinella in pigs from modern farms. Immeasurably important in my book , but you won't hear the animal rights folks talking about that.

Use 'em all the time.

Trichinella is one nasty parasite and getting rid of it is a major accomplishment!

FC, thanks. I was amazed to see that it was pretty much eradicated in commercial pork. Used to be it was a nightmare.

Linda, thanks! He is such a cheerful guy.
