  2. The Absolute Best Indian Restaurants in New YorkRead the original story w/Photo

    Mar 14, 2017 | Grub Street

    Dec 15, 2016 | Grub Street

    The food supply has already shown itself to be alarmingly adept at vectoring superbugs into the human body , but a new report suggests maybe China really wants to see if it can push this to the next level . While the rest of the world finally understands antibiotics in meat are causing an epidemic of multidrug-resistant bacteria, China's aquaculture industry apparently remains a place that, to quote Bloomberg 's story, "exposes the fish to almost the same doses of medicine the livestock get," plus whatever drug cocktail gets tossed into the water to fight aquatic disease.

  16. Of Course Vanity Fair Trashed Trump's Restaurant, and of Course He RetaliatedRead the original story w/Photo

    Dec 15, 2016 | Grub Street
