    I once kept a log listing all the things some scientist or research group said was bad for you. I found out that EVERYTHING, according to one "authority" or another, was bad for you. And that included distilled water.

    It would be interesting to see how a pasture raised broiler compared to a commercially raised broiler.

    First of all, without doing lab work, you have absolutely no way of knowing whether or not your meat chickens, or eggs, or anything else has any more or less pathogens than the commercially produced ones. Secondly, this research sounds a whole like the result of that old computer mantra GIGO. Garbage In = Garbage Out. My sister has been troubled with UTI's for years, and she is a vegetarian. I, on the other hand, have never had a UTI and I eat chicken, some home raised, some not, several times a week.
