    A few years ago the French were shipping processed chickens over here which originated from China but with French labels on them. The Asian Bird Flu epidemic put paid to that.

    Not until I know what's in it ... I have problems with the "industrial nutrients" where it says "like" ... so they are actually not those listed, but something "like" those?

    A local gym instructor said to consume a glass of oatmeal and cold water before coming for the workout ... I looked at that mixture and just could not come to terms with it even being close to edible, let alone what it really looked like.

    I'll stick to my Glucerna for now ... and my salad for lunch.

    I'm a bit iffy about fish these days, with all the seas polluted with god knows what, radiation is the big thing, they talk about global warming all the time, but they never mentions our polluted oceans.

    This reminds me of when I was in hospital many years back in America, I was offered oatmeal for breakfast, so like a true Scot I ordered oatmeal , thinking it would be like the traditional Scot's porridge. but horror upon horror met my eyes when it arrived, it was a round steaming blob made with hot water and salt. It was utterly unpalatable!

    When the FDA allows corporations to use herbicide to speed drying of food crops to get them to market quicker, you know our health has been sold out.

    We get lots of "organic" grown vegetables here which translates to 1) a higher price (because it's "organic"); 2) supposedly none of the herbicides normally used in crop growing are used.

    Most of our produce in Arizona comes from Mexico - the tomatoes I buy certainly do as I only get 'hydroponic grown' tomatoes which to me taste better and don't have that thick skin to deal with.

    One thing that we do watch for processed foods is the ingredients ... especially for "diet" foods ... seems there are more harmful things added to make it "diet" that are worse for you as opposed to eating the "normal" foods. Too many "fake" items needed to make it "diet" that are actually really bad for us.

    recalled a time in my life when I lived in California ... ALL of our oranges came from Florida. California oranges were shipped to Florida. Go figure

    I love Ketchup ... and only buy the brand (Hunt's, locally) without the high fructose corn syrup. Tastes better than the high sugar ones too.

    I drink diet colas but only those with sucralose ... cannot tolerate aspartame (bloats, gas, etc). Mostly water or iced tea (unsweetened, of course).

    Monsanto is a large part of what is wrong with our food.
