Maryn McKenna may be the premier U.S. public health journalist.
Her nickname is "Scary Disease Girl," which she acquired filing reports from places such as a graveyard within the Arctic Circle that held victims of the 1918 flu and a malaria hospital in Malawi. She helped uncover the first cases of Gulf War Syndrome.
In the podcast linked below, McKenna turns her attention to MRSA, the antibiotic-resistant staph strain that kills 19,000 Americans every year.
According to Grist:
"MRSA has a major food angle: Today, as much as 70 percent of antibiotics consumed in the United States go into concentrated-animal feedlot operations, or CAFOs, and these vast, factory-scale animal farms have been shown to harbor a novel MRSA strain."
