Chicken wind

...
Quote:
Anyone who's ever driven behind a truck hauling chickens knows to expect a powerful odor and even a few feathers in its wake. But poultry carriers also apparently trail an airborne plume of potentially harmful bacteria, according to a new study by Johns Hopkins researchers.

The results suggest that motorists and those who live along roads traveled by chicken trucks may be exposed to antibiotic-resistant bacteria, the researchers say. They urged further study and possibly changing transport methods in areas of intense poultry production such as the Delmarva Peninsula.

Scientists at Hopkins' Bloomberg School of Public Health tailed 10 poultry trucks on U.S. 13 down the Delmarva Peninsula in summer and fall of last year, as the vehicles hauled their loads to a processing plant in Accomack, Va. With the windows of their car down and the air conditioning off, the researchers drove two to three car lengths behind the trucks, so they could get a good dose of the vehicles' slipstream.

I don't need Johns Hopkins docs to tell me this.


My grandma, a college graduate - certainly a rarity in those days - but a very simple unpretentious person, used to tell me this:

"whatever smells bad is bad for you."

I forgot. Sorry.
I implied that she'd be wise enough to know

but I do realize that it can be taken otherwise.

let me know what you want me to do with the previous post.
