In Ladydrawers' latest strip in the "Growing Season" comics exploration of public health, race and food policy, Laura Ķeniņš and Anne Elizabeth Moore explore how the production of certain popular meat products is linked to corporate malfeasance, public health risks and profound, citywide racism - not to mention all the weird additives. For workers and eaters alike, the world of meat processing is packed with dangers.
