    Not canned however, it’s the raw stuff.

    A reality check is in order. What the study said was leafy vegetables had a higher rate of food poisoning than meat. It also doesn’t mean that there are significant problems with vegetables. What the cartoon ignores is that the food poisoning on the part of vegetables was TYPICALLY mild and passed quickly. Probably a poor choice of words (passed). Although we do have the occasional outbreak of salmonella or Listeria infection, our food industry is in pretty good shape, considering the amount of food processed for our population.

    But how many little kids are going to use this an an excuse to not eat their vegetables? LOL!
    Never quite understood that, since I LOVED veggies when I was a little kid, and STILL do!

    Let’s see…my late partner was a vegan from the age of 12, had 2 Bachelor’s degrees in Electrical Engineering and Design, and was Coast Guard Certified as a Licensed Ship’s captain for Sailing Charters.

    Agreed, so it’s obviously time to cut back on the overspending of tax money and decrease the government oversight that keeps telling us what we can and cannot eat and keeps me from making an honest buck selling whatever food I can.


    The free market will take care of any problems in our food supply through self-regulation; if some of it is poisoned, the consumers will die off and the company will go broke, and only the producers of good food will survive.

    56. Skin cancer metastasized, and infected his lymphatic system, causing an extended, and VERY painful death.
    Before that, he was a bodybuilding fan, could bench press 300+ pounds at a body weight of 210.

    Establishing that too much sun is bad for us contrary to a healthy lifestyle of a vegetarian nature providing all that is physically necessary for us to thrive. No sarcasm intended, about half my family has constant problems with skin cancer, including melanoma. I’m 66 and when we were younger used to slather ourselves with lotions to promote tanning, we didn’t know any better. I know many, many people that are in fabulous physical condition that are vegetarians and vegans. One of my best friends has pictures going back to when he was a teenager and he is always “pale.” He maintains an almost perfectly sculpted body and has a total disdain for the idea of getting tan. In his shape he doesn’t need to anyway.

    Just a note: the Dalai Lama has also recently pointed out that his doctors have added some “meat protein” to his diet to save his life, as there ARE some nutrients humans can’t get from pure vegetable matter. We ARE by design, omnivores, but there is a rational way for even “vegetarians” to get balance. Of course, if we were cats, we’d all be dead if “vegan”, but even my cat loves her little grass garden, and lettuce, etc..


    Yup, I DO like, and eat my veggies, but fish, chicken, “dairy”, or steak, in moderation, are also necessary.

    It’s the e-coli mostly (I believe) driving this. We had the same stuff here in Germany and called it EHEC. It was basically the first outbreak and could be traced to a ranch’s untreated runoff. We cut it off, fined the rancher and things got back to normal. But I’ve seen pictures of literally MOUNTAINS of dung on American ranches, higher than 100 feet. No wonder that there are so many problems in the United States, not just on leafy greens but on all produce.

    No, I’m a Libertarian. I was a democrat in the 60’s and 70’s, republican in the 80’s and half way through the 90’s. Then I saw the futility of the two political parties and realized they really weren’t that different in their actions, then became a libertarian. It makes much more sense to me.

    Trout, your butcher has been brainwashing you. When you plan a meal that combines grains (like brown rice or whole wheat) and soy of one kind or another, you have a completed protein balance in your meal. What the Dali Lama was having problems with is enough vitamin B 12, primarily available in meat or fish products. It can be taken as a supplement to provide the proper requirement for a healthy metabolism (and nervous system).
