Bill Marler – How To Protect Yourself and Your Family From Food Poisoning

by | Nov 9, 2018

Bill Marler is a nationally recognized foodborne illness lawyer, an expert in food safety and one of the most influential voices in food policy in the world. His law firm Marler Clark has represented thousands of victims in practically every major foodborne illness outbreak in the United States. In 1993, he represented Brianne Kiner, the young girl that survived the most significant of injuries in the historic Jack in the Box E. coli 0157:H7 outbreak, resulting in a $15.6 million settlement that changed the way we process food in America today. His websites Food Safety News and blog MarlerBlog.com inform millions of readers daily with award-winning reporting on foodborne illnesses.

Today, Darya and Bill discuss the latest in food recalls, why eating organic vegetables is just as risky as hamburgers these days, and what we can all do to stay safe.

Bill was also kind enough to donate 5 copies of Poisoned: The True Story of the Deadly E. coli Outbreak That Changed the Way Americans Eat, by Jeff Benedict, that I’m giving away over on my Instagram. Just follow my account and tag a friend to enter.

I encourage you to call in with video questions, particularly if your question is nuanced and may involve a back and forth discussion. Please use headphones to call in however, or the feedback from the show is unbearable.

Show notes:

There is a huge amount of politics surrounding this science, because of the powerful influence of dairy industries around the world. This makes data difficult to interpret. The following review and its rebuttal regarding the role of milk in type 1 diabetes is a perfect example of what I mean:

Dairy & type 1 diabetes

Dairy and osteoporosis

Dairy and acne

Dairy/calcium and heart disease

Dairy/calcium and prostate cancer

Dairy/calcium and colon cancer

Dairy & breast cancer

Dairy & weight loss (very tough to find studies not funded by dairy industry)

  • Moderate weight loss from dairy (but rarely from intervention studies w/o caloric restriction)
  • Possible mechanisms include:
    • Ca++
    • protein
    • conjugated lineoleic acid (CLA)
    • medium-chain fatty acids
  • My interpretation: dairy not likely to have big impact on body weight

Cheese protects against cancer and heart disease?

Extras

  • Processed ice cream contains beaver anal gland?
  • Wikipedia
