Retweeted by Don SchaffnerProps to @Whataburger for engaging with @benjaminchapman regarding food safety on Twitter.@lexfri 😢
@tsiebertz @benjaminchapman we are slackers. Soon come.@capnmariam in our minds, maybe 😜@AmyJane @dwiskus I'm imagining an @AmyJane pep talk involves lots of shouting and the word "dumb-ass" said repeatedly.@JATetro @benjaminchapman Yet the article still stands as written, and I'd wager most readers won't see this conversation.@JATetro yes, but @benjaminchapman are irked because your article seems to make it more clear than it actually is.@JATetro @benjaminchapman Jeff from @IAFPFood, Sabah professionally from cross-contamination research. Franco by name, & Brent not so much.@JATetro Yes, he also a friend of mine and @benjaminchapman too.@benjaminchapman @JATetro Only quote from the paper I can find: "an epidemiological link to locally grown fresh cucumbers was found (4)."@benjaminchapman @JATetro I wonder if Jeff Farber think that his paper says that local produce is safer.@JATetro @benjaminchapman @Globe_Health I get that readers want to read the papers. I'm not sure why that stops you from adding stats.@JATetro @benjaminchapman @Globe_Health so you mean that there are papers you need, but you don't have access?@JATetro @benjaminchapman @Globe_Health What do you mean by OA links?@JATetro @benjaminchapman @Globe_Health Sorry where exactly do the stats in Kozak et al. 2013 show that?✊🍆, but only because there is no Emoji for crickets.@JATetro @Globe_Health Also this quote from the end: “local does not remove all risk… The risk is demonstrably lower…”@JATetro @Globe_Health The headline. Grocery stores or farmers markets: which offer safer food?@JATetro @Globe_Health bullet point 8 on p 54 implies (to me) shift to organic and free range increases risk.@JATetro @Globe_Health bullet point 2 on p 54 talk about different countries (not farmers markets).@JATetro @Globe_Health where do Bourne and Prescott say “farmers markets safer” on pg 7?@JATetro @Globe_Health *Food* is risky. Grocery stores are just the vehicle. Your story said farmers markets safer. Not supported.Sure @JATetro @Globe_Health. Please quote where the 3 papers say what you claim they say. Can’t find it myself.@lexfri have you tried flappy golf?Just read the three peer-reviewed publications that @JATetro links in his @Globe_Health article. Seems to mis-represents their findings.@benjaminchapman He links to three peer reviewed pubs, 👍. But then misrepresents the findings of each one 👎👎👎.Russia demands Bulgarians stop painting Soviet monuments as superheroes http://t.co/Aaf2GfkxfA http://t.co/pk5rJ0pfUO http://t.co/eYQkz8Xqe5
