Meat Glue, Pink Slime,Cancer Causing Fish-Do You Know What You Are Eating?

     It has become increasingly more difficult to feed ourselves and our kids healthy choices when we go to the supermarket. Deceptive food preparation practices and the manner in which our food is raised and grown has been exposed as generally unhealthy for the animals and as a result unhealthy and unsafe for us when we consume it. 
     Many of us find it difficult to shell out the big bucks when buying grass fed beef or free range chickens or wild caught fish.  With all the information that has been exposed in the last few months it seems that tough choices need to be made when buying our food.

"If you were disturbed to hear about 'pink slime' in your burger, you'll want to know about 'meat glue,' because a fat, rare-cooked filet mignon may not be what it seems," ABC News' Bay Area affiliate gasped last week."                  

 Processed beef trimmings and recovered materials from meat carcasses, like fat and connective tissue. Trimmings are heated to 100°F and spun inside a centrifuge to separate the meat from the fat. After the fat is removed, the remaining beef bits are treated with ammonia hydroxide to kill bacteria such as E. coli or salmonella. They are then ground up, frozen into blocks and added to other beef products.
MMM WHAT A HAMBURGER, mmm what a hamburger

CHICKEN FARMS                                     
• Rodents on egg conveyor belts
• Rotting corpses in cages with hens laying eggs for human consumption
• Hens stuck by their heads, legs and wings in cage wires
• Mummified hen carcasses in cages
• Overcrowding of hens in cages that only provide 54-58 square inches [less than 8 inches by eight inches] of living space per hen (well below the national average for egg-laying hens)
• Flies in barns so thick that the investigator had to scrape off his boots after walking down each aisle
• Piles of dead hens on floors of barns
• Dead flies in hens’ feeding troughs
• Barns so dark that workers needed head lamps and flashlights
• Ammonia levels so high that workers often had to wear masks
• Manure and eggs from some barns tested positive for salmonella
• Each worker is tasked with overseeing more than 100,000 animals.
