Marler began representing victims of foodborne illness in 1993, when he represented the most seriously injured survivor of the Jack in the Box E. coli O157:H7 outbreak. Since then he has represented thousands of victims of foodborne illness, including Stephanie Smith, the subject of a Pulitzer Prize winning story in the NY Times magazine, about E. coli contamination. So tune in to get the latest news on apple juice and arsenic, the American Meat Institute and new screening processes, and finally the use of sub-therapeutic antibiotics.

This week Growing Good and host Alessandra-Maria Iavarone revisit an important and urgent issue: the continued push by energy companies to extract natural gas through hydrofracking which has been shown to leeches toxic chemicals into ground and drinking water. With the help of activist and mom Silvia Kolbowski, Growing Good keeps you updated on the action alerts that are going on in NY and the Northeast and how you can do your part to make sure our water is safe. Later, the show lightens up as Eldon Scott, the president of Urban Spaces NYC, joins in the conversation to talk about the famous and festive holiday markets Urban Spaces put on every year at Union Square, Lincoln Center, and the Dekalb Market in Brooklyn. This episode is sponsored Heritage Foods USA.

This week on The Farm Report, Erin Fairbanks is joined by wealth of guests to discuss the issue of hydraulic fracturing, better known as hydrofracking. Erin talks with Heather Carlucci-Rodriguez and Alissa Westervelt of Chefs for the Marcellus, a group of New York City chefs and food purveyors raising awareness about the harmful health effects of fracking. Joining via the phone lines is Greg Swartz of Willow Wisp Farm, talking about how hydrofracking circumvents the Clean Water Act via exceptions granted by the Bush-Cheney administration. Also calling in is Luce Guanzini of Highwood Farm. She discusses the "No Surface Rights" lease that prevents gas companies from entering private properties. How do these technologies impact our food systems? This episode has been brought to by Hearst Ranch.

"It [fracking] directly impacts our watershed. You can't do anything without water, namely grow food. It doesn't relegate itself to farm-to-table...but it really affects everything - industrial food and fast food." --Heather Carlucci-Rodriguez on The Farm Report

"If hydrofracking safe, why do they need an exemption from basic environmental legislation?" --Greg Swartz on The Farm Report
