The author of this book, James McWilliams, recently published an op-ed about pork in the New York Times ( http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/10/opinion/10mcwilliams.html?_r=1&ref=opinion ), in which he cited seemingly frightening statistics from a study that purported to show that free-range pork was dangerous to consume.

However, Mr. McWilliams omitted the fact that the National Pork Board, which is no fan of free-range farming, had in fact paid to have that study conducted. The editors of the New York Times appended this information to McWilliams' piece post-publication.

Given that the author now has a history of concealing the financial relationship between big agro-business and "scientific" data, before reading "Just Food," I'd be curious to know if the National Pork Board, or any similar entity, in any way contributed to the writing or marketing of this book.

Does anyone know?
