Protection From Food
With all the dangers that we experience in our food supply, it’s hard to feel safe when you cook your family a decent home-cook meal. This article will discuss a few of the dangers that we are exposed to as well as how we can protect ourselves from these dangers.
It didn’t take long for the 143 million pound recall of frozen beef to begin an E-Mail circulation that probably hit your Inbox as well as mine. Last month, I received an E-Mail taking on a humorous outlook on our food industry only three days after the recall story was reported.
Can’t eat beef, Mad cow
Can’t eat chicken, Bird Flu
Can eat eggs, Salmonella
Can’t eat pork, Trichinosis
Can’t eat fish, Water Poisoning
Can’t eat fruits and veggies, Insecticides and Herbicides
I believe that leaves CHOCOLATE!!!!
Of course chocolate isn’t an option because that, too, comes from the cocoa bean plant as well as does damage to our dental work.
But right when you think it ends there, it doesn’t. Just two days, Michigan-based Meijer Inc. recalled over 2,000 pounds of their “Discover Cuisine” frozen dinners for possible contamination oflisteria, a microorganism that can cause illness or death. The good news is there’s no need for a worldwide alert, this only affected four states. The bad news is what is happening to our food supply?
While that is an entire topic that will be discussed later, I really want to focus on how can we protect ourselves from these dangers. I don’t want to fright you from opening your favorite pack of ground beef and making your world-famous meatloaf, but it always better to be safe than sorry. It’s okay to be a bit paranoid of what’s going on, but ridiculous to ignore it.
Even then there’s no need to worry. If push comes to shove, The Global Crop Diversity Trust is the only one organization that has provided an answer to the food crisis if the worse scenario levies about. They are planning to store seeds of the world’s plants in one huge vault in the coldest point on the planet, the Arctic Circle. This is something fascinating to read about, so be sure to visit their site as well.
