Beware of What You Eat

Many people think the FDA of the government will protect them against tainted or diseased food product. Well, the FDA is one of many corrupt organizations in Washington which protects those it is supposed to regulate. It is the ultimate in “regulatory capture” where the industry sends its executives for a few years to make the regulation suitable for their business, and after a few years, these people return to their companies.

Read this article sent from a valued client as to how the FDA allows filthy food to be imported and avoid bothersome labeling to disclose where the food came from:

Smithfield Farms, the largest pork producing farm in the USA was sold in September to China with the unanimous support of its stockholders. The hogs will still be raised here, but slaughtered and packaged for sale there before being sent back here. This includes labels: Morrell, Echrich, Krakus, Cudahy, Premium Hams, Cook’s Gwaltney.

The same is true with chickens under these labels. They can now be shipped there, but when they come back all that needs to be on the label is that they were raised in the USA, Not that they were processed in China, our great FDA at work. The chickens under these labels will all be processed and most sold to fast food restaurants, schools and supermarkets. The China slaughter and processing requirements are, for the most part, unregulated and far inferior to requirements of the USA.

We recently learned that Starkist Tuna is now owned by Korea and is in conflict with the U.S. concerning quality, safety and records keeping, which Korea refuses to produce. Avoid tilapia fish that comes from China. Watch that tilapia as the clerk spends time picking worms out of the fish, but heck more protein. The filthy conditions their foods are raised and processed in. Some foreign workers have to wear masks as they work in these places because the food is so rotten and filthy; it makes them want to throw up. Many of their fish on Fish Farms are fed raw sewage daily. They put some food coloring and some flavorings on it then they ship it to the USA & Canada for you to consume and feed to your families and friends.

My View: Our food is the most important aspect of maintaining a healthy life. We can’t let K-Street lobbyists destroy not only our economy but also our health! No wonder the U.S. is such and unhealthy country. When people complain about the hire cost of healthcare in the U.S just point to those lobbyists who want to make the big pharma industry rich! How do they do it? The FDA has been becoming more and more corrupt for years and nobody has been saying a thing. They are forcing bad policies on us AND by slowly ruining our health …just to make a few bucks.
