NYT Columnist Nicolas Kristof wrote an article about the late Doctor Tom Anderson, and his crusade against livestock farms as a cause of MRSA.  You can find the article at this link:

Purdue and Indiana Pork were quick to respond and noted the lack of “real” data, and the very speculative nature of the article. Certainly, the intent was to leverage the recent and unexpected death of Doc Anderson with yet another attack on the livestock industry. Below is the link to the Purdue article which addressed the topic, the response from Indiana Pork, and local news articles.
