"It really raises the question of what is real cooking and what is real food. And, to me, anything that is prepared with love and that is intended to nurture the people that it's prepared for is real cooking."

Bob Martin is the director of Food System Policy at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health’s Center for a Livable Future and guest lecturer at the school. Formerly, he was a senior officer at the Pew Environment Group and was the Executive Director of the Pew Commission on Industrial Farm Animal Production, a two year study funded by The Pew Charitable Trusts by a grant to Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The charge to the Commission was to recommend solutions to the problems caused by concentrated animal feeding operations in the areas of public health, the environment, rural communities, and animal welfare. The Commission’s final report, Putting Meat on the Table: Industrial Farm Animal Production in America, was release on April 28, 2008. This week on What Doesn't Kill You, Katy Keiffer talks with Bob about the report, and its findings on antibiotics in livestock agriculture, waste management, contract growing, and more! Thanks to our sponsor, Cain Vineyard & Winery. Music by Dead Stars.

"I think the conclusion of the report said it best - change will come from a more informed and aggressive consumer." [34:45]

The meat industry is becoming "chickenized" and it's not a good thing. This week on What Doesn't Kill You, Katy Keiffer talks to Christopher Leonard, author of The Meat Racket: The Secret Takeover of America's Food Business. Christopher is the former national agribusiness reporter for the Associated Press. His work has appeared in Fortune, Slate, and The New York Times. He is a fellow with The New America Foundation, a nonpartisan public policy institute in Washington, DC. This program was sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

"We used to have a rigorous cash market for hogs - that totally got destroyed and erased by contract production." [26:00]

"There is a deep aversion in [some states] to government regulation. People see the hand of big government as stupid and ineffective. Mostly what producers encounter are regulations, so there's an inherent distrust for government intervention. The irony is [...] big corporations are characterized by centralized control, secret contracts [...] it's a command and control system. That's what happens when you don't have anti-trust regulations. The laws of supply and demand don't determine the price of chicken any more - it's market power." [29:00]
