“In their continuing campaign against animal protein and modern agriculture, the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health has published findings that, in my opinion as a microbiologist and veterinarian, defy logic and sound science,” wrote Charles Hofacre, MAM, DVM, Ph.D.,  professor and director of clinical services at the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine, in a letter to the editor of the Baltimore Sun earlier this week.

“A scientific review of these studies raises several areas of concern, the most serious of which relates to the source of the 12 samples tested. As a scientist, it’s hard to imagine that a ‘peer reviewed’ journal would ever accept a paper that did not give specifics about where samples originated, down to manufacturer and location,” Hofacre wrote.
