What is safe to eat?

I sometimes fall out of habit of hearing the news. You know how it is you get busy and life goes on without you. Then you get a little snippet and then the next thing you know you have a whole new series of worries.

I had already heard of the scare with the eggs, which is not too surprising when you consider most factory farming techniques. But lunch meat was a new one.

It would seem that if one of our exporting countries to the US is not trying to kill us with their product, see China etc. , then it is the basic greed of our own food producing companies.

What is a person supposed to do? No seriously what is a person supposed to do?

Well Linda Stern of Money Watch had a excellent blog that had some really good ideals of some protective practices to do or a routinely basis.

Needless to say it would probably not hurt to develop a stronger connection with our food and start buying locally and thereby having a firmer connection with where our food comes from and a stronger responsibility with what we choose or eat.

When was the last time yiu ask where your food came from. Maybe it is time to start asking
