Busy this week…
I’ve got a few posts on draft… but, I wanted to show you this:
That’s over 10,000 South Koreans gathering to protest that their president is raising the ban on American Beef.
Isn’t it kind of weird that people gather in massive amounts in OTHER COUNTRIES to say that they do not accept the way the U.S. Government regulates the safety practices of it’s cattle industry, one of it’s biggest industries?
Why aren’t this many people gathering in the U.S.?
This is how scared the rest of the world is about mad cow disease, salmonella and E. coli poisoning. Meanwhile, Americans are shielded from a major problem with a $75 Billion industry. Sure, we hear about it here and there. But it’s quickly forgotten.
My point: Health and Food Safety experts don’t have extremely well funded people influencing politicians and major newspapers and TV news networks. You’re going to have to make sure you educate yourself when it comes to the safety of your food, and not rely on your government to tell you what’s safe to eat.
Sad, isn’t it?
