  •  Foodborne Disease Kills More Americans Than 9-11 (1+ / 0-)

    ...every year.

    The Centers For Disease Control 2011 estimates of food borne illnesses:
    Total food borne illnesses    47.8 million
    Estimated Hospitalizations   127,839
    Estimated number of deaths    3,037

    A single outbreak of listeria killed 33 Americans in 2011.

    I wrote a diary about food safety, and I threw in some gratuitous mockery of the anti-GMO-hair-on-fire crowd.

    Men are so necessarily mad, that not to be mad would amount to another form of madness. -Pascal
