This week on What Doesn't Kill You, host Katy Keiffer is getting insight on the food industry from Mel Coleman, Jr. of Niman Ranch. Niman Ranch, based in the San Francisco Bay area, raises livestock traditionally, humanely and sustainably to produce the finest tasting meat in the world. Today, the Niman Ranch network has grown to include over 700 independent American farmers and ranchers. Kicking off the show talking to Mel about his father's decision to go "natural" with the business and how the business grew from his original vision. Talking about the initial difficulty to have the USDA approve their beef as natural, the conversation moves to what the biggest changes the industry has made, for better or worse, since the start of the business. Mel also shares with Katy what exactly sets Niman Ranch a part from the Cargills or Smithfields in the meat market as far as their business models are concerned. After the break, Mel breaks down what facets of the ranch are located throughout the country, including the hog farms and processing plant, and how efficiency is central to Niman's success. Tune in for a fascinating profile of Niman Ranch as well as insights on the food industry. This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

"More and more consumers are increasingly knowledgable about food and how it's produced." [4:20]

"Our number one commitment is to our farmer and rancher partners. So, if they raise a product for us what we're going to do is buy it and sell it." [16:07]

This week on What Doesn't Kill You, Katy Keiffer chats with Patrick Martins about his book, The Carnivore's Manifesto: Eating Well, Eating Responsibly, and Eating Meat. The book features fifty ways to be an enlightened carnivore, while taking better care of our planet and ourselves. We have evolved as meat eaters, proclaims Patrick Martins, and it's futile to deny it. But, given the destructive forces of the fast-food industry and factory farming, we need to make smart, informed choices about the food we eat and where it comes from. In 50 short chapters, Martins cuts through organize zealotry and the misleading jargon of food labeling to outline realistic steps everyone can take to be part of the sustainable-food movement.

"If there's a truth out there - that truth applies to everybody whether you're rich or poor, black or white. The elitism argument [in food] demeans poor people." [13:00]

"We need more farms producing more food for more Americans. That's one of the goals of this book." [16:00]
