1. DA Allows Unsafe Meat to Be Sold
This a great article by
Dr. Greger explaining why the USDA allows the selling of unsafe meat
and blames the consumer if he/she gets sick. Dr. Greger says
that American meat is contaminated with fecal matter and food
pathogens to the extent that is a danger to public health. Patricia
Griffin, director of Epidemiological Research at the Centers for
Disease Control, puts it well: “Is it reasonable,” she asked, ‘“that
if a consumer under cooks a hamburger…their three-year-old dies?”
Why is it Legal to Sell Unsafe Meat:
The extent of
corruption in our food system is appalling. Unfortunately, the USDA
cannot be trusted to watch over the safety of food to any extent. It’s
up to the consumer to make educated decisions about what to eat and
what to feed one’s family. I believe we walk on much safer grounds
when we avoid eating animal products and focus mainly on
whole-unprocessed plant-based foods.

3. More Deception by the Dairy Industry?
A new site,
www.DairyGood.org, tells consumers that the dairy industry
promotes health in people, in communities and in the planet. Even
worse, it deceives the public into reinforcing the idea that dairy
industry plays an important role in creating supposedly a safe,
affordable and abundant food supply. Sadly, this new website also
includes personal accounts of dairy producers who have endured the
worst drought in decades in order to touch people’s hearts.
The dairy industry lacks ethics, compassion and integrity. Of course
it is going to use any antic imaginable to keep consumers buying their
products even though scientific evidence indicates that milk is by no
means as healthy food; in fact, dairy should be avoided completely
when possible for it contributes to osteoporosis, obesity, diabetes
and cancer among other illnesses.

4. This Week’s
(RSV) 1 Corinthians 6:19
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit
within you, which you have from God? You are not your own;…
Taking care of our
bodies is one essential aspect of being good stewards of God’s
Creation. If we neglect our health, we are not showing respect for our
5. Factory Farms Responsible for Bugs
spite of the overwhelming evidence that the overuse of antibiotics in
factory farmed animals has been a major player in increasing rate of
antibiotic-resistant bacteria, the sad reality is that this overuse of
antibiotics is essential for industrial animal agriculture to exist.
Clearly, public health is not their concern, nor the devastation of
the environment. After all, animal agriculture contributes more to
global warming that all transportation combined.
Bad Bugs from an Unsustainable Meat-Producing Model:
It’s really surprising how the meat, egg and dairy industries have
been able to rely on antibiotics without much control at all and
putting public health at risk. It’s obvious that it’s the consumer the
one who can ultimately put an end to this practice. Without a demand
for animal products factory farms would disappear. This would be great
news for all of God’s Creation!
