Tax dollars at work: CDC says kissing chickens causes disease
There is nothing wrong with showering your family pets with love and affection, but this latest announcement by the CDC is truly for the birds. According to a recently released report, kissing chickens causes disease. Apparently, the world’s smartest scientists at the CDC are witnessing a huge increase in salmonella poisoning in the United States, and their only conclusion is that people are being far too affectionate with their barnyard fowl. The study’s findings were recently published in the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases. According to the report, a rather astonishing 13% of all salmonella cases that occurred in the United States between 1990 and 2014 were due, in part, to chicken smooching. But the CDC goes much deeper, of course. They just can’t help themselves.
