Hey, he asked, I answered.. I've been a member of these boards long enough to know where those kinds of questions lead. If you think I'm being 'elitist' thats cool with me, but I'm hardly that guy. No need to project - it is text after all. 'Entirely' and 'terrified' are two words you should rethink from your post.
Now it's you that sounds elitist.[...]I had to work at Whole Foods Market, and most people who are worried about eating local and organic foods aren't smart, educated, or really know what they're doing. They're just trying to fit into the new "cool" hippy revival, going on about global warming and complaining about genetically altered materials. These are the same idiots who worry about how a cow is treated, but buy their crabs alive so they can boil them to death later. It's an animal meant to eat ffs, just kill it and stop complaining.
I'm not hysterical. I'm just trying to drive the point in that all these supposed agencys in charge of determining what's safe for people to eat are basically FUBAR in my opinion and operate as "yes man" extensions to powerful food manufacturing or producing companies in my opinion. It's more like "prove that this causes something bad" rather than "prove that it definitely doesn't" mentality. Burden is on the consumer not the companies in my opinion. And considering most people TRUST these agencies to "look out for them" seeing as they have their own lives to worry about you can see where the problem might be. How many of these stupid drugs are recalled once they start racking up the body count? Quality approval process right there. $$$$ talks we all know what walks.
...Im going to stick with chicken or maybe fish dishes from now on. Look out, oysters and sushi! Youre next!
