NY Times Exposes Meat Trade

Article tells the story of a woman paralyzed by E. coli, exposes the dangers of eating beef.

An article published Sunday in The New York Times details the risks of eating beef by documenting the tragic story of 22-year-old Stephanie Smith, who was left paralyzed from the waist down after eating an E. coli-tainted hamburger. Smith, a former children's dance instructor, contracted the disease two years ago at a family barbecue. Within a week of eating the contaminated beef she was rushed to a local hospital, transferred to the Mayo Clinic due to intense seizures, and finally induced into a life-saving coma. When Smith awoke nine weeks later, she was paralyzed; the E. coli had devastated her nervous system. Cargill produced the tainted hamburger meat, and the article exposes the harsh reality of meat-production.
