Excuse me? Perhaps I am partial because I worked at insurance companies for a respectable chunk of my career…but I SO believe that “they” would rather have us sick and paying insurance premiums than healthy. (yall know I can be dramatic!)
“In a news release issued this week, the FDA said that after years of detailed study, regulators concluded that meat and milk from cloned cattle, swine and goats and their offspring are safe to eat. In fact, regulators will not require any special labeling for meat that was produced from clones.”
GTFOH!!! This topic came up while I was at Khumura’s Saturday waiting for my Mom. I almost got so wrapped up political coverage that I almost forgot the FDA is trying to kill me!
Khumura is a vegan and Mom (who abhors labels) eats what she wants…but red meat is like a once a month thing if at all…and since she is lactose intolerant she is only a hop, skip and a jump from being a vegetarian or vegan if she ever chose to do so.
I know that they claimed that the cloned meat is not among the regular meat yet and it won’t be for a while, if at all…but either way…I felt lost Saturday night trying to figure out what to eat! I was visiting family…far away from my cookbook and kitchen…and everything that popped into my mind to eat…I just couldn’t bring myself to go…well…anywhere.
Has science gone too far?
I was talking to one of my girlfriends today and she suggested that perhaps the government is trying to push more people towards being vegetarians/vegans by scaring them…I wouldn’t put it past the government to try and scare people into action…that seems to be the blueprint anyway…but I doubt the aim of this is to scare us into healthier lifestyles…
