Would you go to a garbage can or a dumpster to find your dinner?

We are what we eat!

What if I said I would cook all of the germs out of the food in that trash can for you?

Would you eat it?  Think for a minute why you wouldn't.  If you are eating any factory farmed meat (beef, pork, chicken, fish) or eggs or drinking milk, then you might as well pick your food from a dumpster, cook it, and eat it.  Cook it well--like we're told to do with meat (and eggs)--because it might be diseased or contaminated or contain worms.

“Consumers should know that Salmonella is destroyed by the heat of proper cooking.  Eggs should be cooked until the whites and yolks are firm. For dishes containing eggs, the internal temperature should reach 160 °F.”

If you would really like to find out what you are eating when you bite into a piece of meat, read Slaughterhouse by Gail Eisnitz.  She was the chief investigator for the Humane Farming Association.  In her interviews with dozens of slaughterhouse workers she learned how the profit motive works in the meat-food industry.  There are few FDA inspectors, and few filthy, diseased or decayed meats were kept from being packaged for us to eat.  This includes pieces fallen on the filthy floor where people spit and roaches crawl.    (Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin, page 74).

Don't take my word for it:

"According to the Congressional testimony of one former Perdue worker, the poultry plants are filthy. She said there were flies, rats and ..cockroaches covering the walls and floors.  

"After hung, sometimes the chickens fall off into the drain... This is where the roaches, intestines, diseased parts, fecal cantamination, and blood are washed down. Workers vomit into the drain... Employees spit... sometimes relieve themselves on the floor...The Perdue supervisors told us to take the fallen chickens out of the drain and send them down the line."   (Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin, p. 75)

Perdue Farms is a major chicken processing company based in Salisbury, Maryland, with annual sales in excess of $4.1B. (according to Perdue Farms, 2008)

As of 2005, Perdue Farms is the third-largest American producer of broilers (chickens for eating), annually producing 59,320,000 pounds of ready-to-cook broiler meat. Perdue is behind Tyson Foods (151,300,000 lbs.) and Pilgrim's Pride Corp.  (Wikipedia)
