Fake Foods

When will it stop?  The Government messing with our food supplies … are they eating this crap too?

First we have Fruits and Veggies that are Genetically Modified or sometimes called Genetically Engineered that hit our markets in 1994 (or there about) and have been shown to be linked to all kinds of health problems in Americans … from cancer to lupus to headaches. 

Then we have Chicken Breast being injected with water to increase their size.  Oh sure water is healthy but, why I ask, is it necessary to fake the size of Chicken Breasts?

And we have Beef and Chicken full of steroids and antibiotics, which has been shown to be affecting us in a way that we are becoming resistant to antibiotics and Lord knows what the steroids do to us … I’ve heard everything from making our children larger to creating those fat tummies everyone tries so hard to get rid of.

Now, they just reported on ABC News that the USDA approved using what’s known as “Pink Slim” to be added to our ground Hamburger meat, especially the lower fat content ground meats.  What is “Pink Slim”?  Its where they take the fat cuttings from the butcher room floors, heat it up and then essentially suck the fat out and what’s left is “Pink Slim”.  Oh and I forgot to add … it’s then sprayed with ammonia to kill bacteria.  Finally, its formed into bricks and flash frozen …then sent to the grocery stores to be added to our ground Hamburger meat.  Its not even meat since it’s been processed out of fat.  More like what’s in hot dogs and we all know that is pretty disgusting.

And be careful of that term “organic” … there’s no regulations on who can claim their food is organic.  The ONLY way to know is to purchase your fruits and veggies from local farms and buy your meats from ranchers who raise cattle and fowl that are steroid and antibiotic free.

The more I learn the more I want to become a farmer … don’t laugh … more and more people are doing just that! 

Now don’t take my word for it … do your own research.  There’s lots of reputable websites with articles confirming what I’ve said here.

Something to think about when you’re cooking dinner for your family tonight!!!
