No, I'm not describing myself. Haha
I'm talking about a letter to the editor that Randy Spronk, Chairman of the Environmental Committee for the National Pork Producer's Council (NPPC), recently submitted to the New York Times. Spronk was writing in reply to another outlandish article by anti-meat columnist Mark Bittman. Although Spronk's letter was only 153 words long he pointed out the falsehoods in Bittman's article and corrected them with facts about modern pork production in the United States. Take for example this exerpt:
Modern livestock housing is temperature-controlled, well lighted and well ventilated. It keeps animals safe and comfortable and protects them from predators and disease. That’s why the incidence of key food-borne illnesses in this country is going down, not up. Bravo, Randy. Heard you loud and clear.
Until next time,
