    Default Poison gas food product in the 'health food' stores

    The recent news of 'Pink Slime' in ground beef (http://grist.org/food/2010-01-05-che...monia-burgers/) got me wondering what else the food industry is doing with our food and I ran across this article on Soy based foods like veggi bergers. It appears the "healthy" alternatives aren't so healthy:

    If you're brave enough to want to know the truth about exactly what the mega food corporations are putting in your food or how its processed make a point of watching the excellent documentary film, Food Inc.

    Mad cow disease in people was caused by dead cows with the disease being ground up and fed to other cows (common practice) so what other health risks are we being exposed to? If you believe the FDA is going to prevent the food industry from feeding you poisons, you are naive. Sadly, it's up to you and I to police what we eat.

    They did a story on the news last night about how Starbucks strawberry frappuccino's get their red color from a pigment made from ground up beetles (insects)

    I also seen a documentary on where most veggies and fruits are picked before they are ripe and in transit they are gassed with (dont remember) to make them rippen just in time to hit the shelves.

    Food Inc. is a great documentary, inform yourself. Although It didnt change my eatting habits alot, mainly due to cost and availability. We had a local organic market and it sadly closed recently.

    I worked for a chain of grocery stores once...
    A common practice for a lot of meat departments, to give meat a good red color,especially ground beef..???
    A little color goes a long way,and you can not taste the cherry flavor once its cooked anyway...





    I have seen it done many times,although the meat dept guys try to be discreet about it....

    My daughter manages a Starbucks and said people don't seem to care although one customer asked for a bugjuice supreme.

    There is another documentary I saw a couple weeks ago on the same subject...

    In reality, the ground up red beetle is probably the healthiest way to color a food.

    After all it is 100% natural and organic.

    Would you prefer Red Dye #2 ?

    Did you think this through before you typed it?

    I mean here is a veggie burger after being fully processed through a steer.

    Veggies go in, get processed and this plops out!

    Default Buy organic

    Whenever I can I buy organic. Free range eggs and organic beef and chicken. Stores that see it being purchased will stock it. I've seen this at my local marts, but then I live in California, you know where all us tree huggin' hippies live.

    Honestly, the people who make our food are just a few GIANT food corporations who wouldn't bat an eye at putting some kind of poison in our food if they thought they could make a buck from it and get away with it. This really isn't conspiracy nut stuff it's real poisons being fed to us and we are the guina pigs that may not know we've been poisoned even after they bury us.

    I pay extra for insurance for my peace of mind and I do the same for the food I eat. It's damn worth it to me.

    I changed my diet the day after I watched this one. It's been over four months now.
