Recently, I heard a news report on the television that the large fast food franchises would no longer be using what is actually called SLIME in the food industry as an ingredient in their products. Did we know about SLIME in the first place and the fact that through manipulation of artificial flavorings, we digested the stuff??????? Who knew???? And, now that I know what it is and that I ate it because I was led to believe that only healthy stuff is offered at those places (being sarcastic here), I want to throw up!
Now, it's REALLY SCARY......the government is buying the stuff up and feeding it to our children and calling it healthy with their new initiatives to mandate that only they know what is healthy and good for the public. Please read the article to see what I'm talking about. AND, sign the petition!
I was typing so fast....I forgot to give you the link: http://act.credoaction.com/campaign/pink_slime/?r=5538179&id=36198-5016798-byBHbex
Sorry, sorry, sorry for not posting more regularly....no! no, apologies....life is life...we get busy so we do what we can. But, I am sorry. I've come across sooooooooo much it's almost mind-blowing regarding the laws, Mansanto is entrenched in our current administration, and things are changing faster than you could sear a steak!!
Please, everyone try and get a copy of the New Food Safety Law and study it! I think we should be able to get a free copy from the US government web site. If it costs anything to get a copy, it's well worth it. I'm going to try and get me a copy soon! We need to know what we are up against to be able to become REAL FOOD advocates. Also, we need to do as much investigation as we can to be able to educate our family and friends as to how Mansanto is QUICKLY changing what the food industry is really about, how that affects our immediate health and access to food and what we can do about it.
In the meantime, here is a great link that can help you navigate through the FRANKENFOOD INDUSTRY. Remember, it's not just about "organic" any more. That term itself can be VERY misleading. Learn what is happening to our foods. Even if you have stepped up your diligence to make truly good food choices, others need to be educated. It's the whole world food chain that is under attack by the greedy. Europe has kicked Mansanto OUT!! It's time we did the same!
For the VERY brave:
When Roland and I met, I was one of those people who opened the box or can and warmed up the family meal. After our marriage in 2005, I truely began to appreciate what food is really about, not only that it can taste very good, and be nutritious, but that it can be a celebration of who you are and the people that you share it with.
