Be sure to read this very interesting story in the Pasadena Star News by Dr. Claire Panosian Dunavan, an infectious disease specialist and a professor of medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and a resident of Pasadena.
Her story is written as a comment on the new Food Reform Bill just passed by both Houses, and points out that “reducing food-borne illness to the lowest possible levels also requires consumer education and collaboration. Above all, consumers with underlying disease need to go the extra mile to protect themselves. Why? Statistically and biologically, they are the ones with the worst outcomes from food-borne blights.”
To illustrate her point she discusses the case of a women who ate infected oysters and what happened to her and others.
