What does Hormel have to do with the water supply in Nebraska? What are the issues facing workers in the pork industry? Find out on a pork-themed episode of What Doesn't Kill You as Katy Keiffer chats with expert Ted Genoways. Ted Genoways is editor-at-large at OnEarth, the magazine of the Natural Resources Defense Council. He has also contributed to a number of other magazines such as The Atlantic, Bloomberg Businessweek, Harper's, Mother Jones, The New Republic, and Outside. His book, The Chain: Farm, Factory, and the Fate of Our Food, is forthcoming from HarperCollins in October. This program was sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

"The bigger issue is how these animals are raised in such an intense concentration and how that then creates a situation where manure is present in such concentration. The hog truckers don't want to move the waste over large distances, and it wouldn't be idea because there are spills. So, to me, the real solution is to have the raising of animals be spread out as it was up until these confinements became the next step in big agriculture in the 1970's." [20:00]
