You're not going to believe what you've been eating the last few years (thanks, Bush! thanks meat industry lobbyists!) when you eat a McDonald's burger (or the hamburger patties in kids' school lunches) or buy conventional ground meat at your supermarket:
According to today's New York Times, The "majority of hamburger" now sold in the U.S. now contains fatty slaughterhouse trimmings "the industry once relegated to pet food and cooking oil,"

My lunch choice just went from Subway to McDonalds. Slime on!

Precisely why I don't eat meat very often...

KIRKRIDER 02-24-2012 12:06 PM

WInter...I remember that word...what does it mean again?

Well, I could be wrong, but I believe Winter is an old, old wooden ship that was used during the Civil War era.

This is the reason i buy beef from local farmers and also raise my own chickens and other animals, so i don't have to put up with the poorly regulated food industry and their shitty tasting food.

Meh. After eating bland, shitty (and expensive) European meat for a year there is nothing that beats a juicy USDA beef steak

This why we don't eat hormone raged meat, visit our local butcher, AWESOME place to be. One of the last man stores left on this planet.
Most of our vegetables aren't any better. Rough numbers don't recall exacts but broccoli has 35% less vitamins than 15 years ago and same with many other vegetables

Ever watch "Food Inc"

Hell nearly all the OTC vitamins are filled with non digestible binders and your body absorbs only about 18% of the actual vitamin, another good cover up and marketing wet dream
