Ah, yes. “Pink slime.”

Trust me: you don’t really want to read up on what’s in our food.  I mean, it’s not like the bad days of… well, most of recorded history, really.  The organic food people don’t like to hear this, but our current system of food safety is there for a reason, and a lot of the objections to that system are in my opinion frankly visceral*.  So I can shrug off the fillers, preservatives, genetic modifications, and general better living through chemistry that’s going on behind the scenes.

Just… keep it behind the scenes, OK?  We’ll all be happier that way, I assure you.

*I wish that Obama’s FDA would stop hassling the raw milk folks, though.  I mean, I wouldn’t drink raw milk on a bet, but it’s not like the people who drink that stuff are spreading anything contagious.

    Then don’t eat anything made from wheat. It’s all fumigated with poisons to keep bugs and rats out. It’s been that way for decades upon decades, even “organic”

    I agree on the big picture. Personally, though, my wife and I have direct sources for eggs, beef and vegetables and I like knowing the person who’s providing my food – mostly because that gives me greater confidence in its quality and safety.

    We still buy a lot from grocery stores, but when it is possible we go direct. I’m also not a personal fan of raw milk *but* cheese made from raw milk is DA BOMB compared to pasteurized options.

    Don’t like dangerous chemicals in your food?
    Don’t eat. Plants have spent millions of years packing themselves with chemicals to keep away predators. Heck, why do you think peppers developed their heat?

  • Phil Smith says:

    I don’t drink milk any more, but I’ve tasted raw milk, and it’s really tasty.

    I’ll take a double helping of pink slime. My fav fast food is Taco Bell, soooo…….yeah.

  • BCochran1981 says:

    Hey, green slime is cool. Michelle Obama said so…

  • Finrod says:

    The movie Green Slime was the inspiration for the cool little boardgame Awful Green Things From Outer Space.
