    Glad I'm Raising Rabbits

    As if we didn't have enough dangerous additives to our food already, the government has decided to spray all ready-to-eat lunchmeats and meat products with a 6 virus combination spray targeted to kill one bacteria that kills about 500 weakened-immune people in the states each year.

    Already in the works is more bacteriophagic (bacteria-eating) virus sprays for use on beef before it is ground.

    Now, I know I've been eating ground meat and pre-prepared meat products my whole life and I've never gotten sick from them.

    I know that only immuno-suppressed people (and only 2.500 of that population segment) get sick from the bacteria in the first place, and that the government wants to put viruses into my food on purpose!

    Whatever happened to people changing their diet for the betterment of their health? Jeez, is it too hard to avoid pre-prepared meat products if you are immuno-suppressed or pregnant?

    The things some folks want to impose "for the greater good" sometimes make me sick, and could you too!

    Of course we all know we can trust the FDA to not falsify reports and not take bribes and all of that, right? *sarcasm*

    It'll be interesting to see just how many people die from the virus-spray, that can't handle it any better than the virii that the spray allegedly kills. You know, or I'll bet anyway, that they've not tested these sprays for any length of time to *know* they're safe for the majority of people who eat it, that they're just *assuming* it's safe. *sigh*

    Unbelievable.

    I guess Lexie's days of a ham sandwich for every other meal are coming to a close.
