Nothing Could Be Swiner... David Kirby on HuffPo

NC BBQ Click HERE to read David Kirby's latest post on Swine Flu in Huffington Post.

In researching my upcoming book on factory farming for St. Martins Press, I have come across many warnings from our past about the looming threat of pandemic influenza emerging from large-scale hog operations.
