Nice approach to a very serious problem for YOU.

"Hey! Look over there Requiem, while we poison you and your family via the food you pay for."

It's people like you that make it possible for the coperate world to do this to you.

Most 1st world countries do not allow what the US does relative to the food supply but that is of no concern to you right.

The USA is number 1 in the world in one thing - CANCER - THE USA HAS THE HIGHEST RATES OF CANCER IN THE WORLD!

Did you have your meat-glue today Baja?


www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ss_b-dRIOOg

http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/food/...w-meat-2469917

Meat Glue: Or how to make a filet mignon out of stew meat.

It has recently come to my attention that a substance called transglutaminase (i.e. meat glue) has been used in the food industry for many years in order to trick us into thinking the food we eat is of a better quality.

According to Wiki, meat glue "...is produced by Streptoverticillium mobaraense fermentation in commercial quantities or extracted from animal blood, and is used in a variety of processes, including the production of processed meat and fish products. It can be used as a binding agent to improve the texture of protein-rich foods such as surimi or ham." (Surimi is a fish used to make imitation crab meat. Suprise! There's animal blood extract in your crab!)

"Transglutaminase can be used in these applications:

* Improving texture of emulsified meat products, such as sausages and hot dogs.
* Binding different meat parts into a larger ones ("portion control"), such as in restructured steaks
* Improving the texture of low-grade meat such as so-called "PSE meat" (pale, soft, and exudative meat, whose characteristics are attributed to stress and a rapid postmortem pH decline)
* Making milk and yogurt creamier (seriously there's pig blood extract in my yogurt)
* Making noodles firmer"

How to spot a meat-glued steak - this video is not for the faint of heart

Meat glue is banned in the EU, but in the US, the FDA classifies it under GRAS (generally recognized as safe). Transglutaminase is not required to be posted on the ingredients list.

So the next time I order a steak at a restaurant, I will raise holy hell if they are unable to tell me if my steak was made with meat glue. Then again, how can I truly believe them, if I don't see it with my own eyes? According to the video above, it is impossible to tell the difference between a cooked, meat-glued steak, and a cooked, non-meat-glued steak.

Shut the **** up Baja.

Everyone here is sick of your granduer and telling us how we do or don't live our lives the right way.

Why aren't you here fighting the "good" fight?

Why cop out and leave?

I eat fresh fruits and veggies. I stay low on carbs and sodium. I spend more money for organic goods from a local shop of people I know. I can't eat most of the food people here do because my kidney disease doesn't process crap well.

I manage myself, help others and do what I can. I do well for myself.

I choose the battles I know I can win for myself snd those dearest to me.

Sorry, but I'm not gonna piss on America here or myself.

Baja,

here's a cool article on farmpunk:

http://technoccult.net/archives/2011...e-of-farmpunk/

Quote:
Mr. Jones, 30, and his wife, Alicia, 27, are among an emerging group of people in their 20s and 30s who have chosen farming as a career. Many shun industrial, mechanized farming and list punk rock, Karl Marx and the food journalist Michael Pollan as their influences. The Joneses say they and their peers are succeeding because of Oregon’s farmer-foodie culture, which demands grass-fed and pasture-raised meats. [...]

The problem, the young farmers say, is access to land and money to buy equipment. Many new to farming also struggle with the basics.

In Eugene, Ore., Kasey White and Jeff Broadie of Lonesome Whistle Farm are finishing their third season of cultivating heirloom beans with names like Calypso, Jacob’s Cattle and Dutch Ballet.

They have been lauded — and even consulted — by older farmers nearby for figuring out how to grow beans in a valley dominated by grass seed farmers.

But finding mentors has been difficult. There is a knowledge gap that has been referred to as “the lost generation” — people their parents’ age may farm but do not know how to grow food. The grandparent generation is no longer around to teach them.

The irony of it all was that he was preaching security and safety in Mexico, and about a half a dozen legal cases came across my desk dealing with child abduction and trafficking through Latin America, but mostly within Mexico in the past two weeks.

Number of Americans dying of cancer per year = 500,000 (many preventable with better food choices)

Number of people killed in Mexico by drug cartels per year = 34,612



* How widespread is cancer?

It is estimated that one out of three persons will have cancer in their lifetimes. About one in six persons will die of cancer. No one knows the exact number of new cancer cases diagnosed in the U.S. each year because no nationwide cancer registry exists. We do know that about 500,000 cancer deaths occur annually in the U.S. Cancer is the second leading cause of death after heart disease. (Watch the vid in the OP to see how many are caused by processed food.)

Do you have a link to legitimate research that proves this point? I'd like to read it if you do because I'm not watching an 18 minute video of a woman with no scientific, medical or nutritional qualifications talking about this point.

A minute portion of cancer issues in the United States are due to food intake.

and that number of deaths is grossly underreported, but we all know that.
