    However, I also believe in cutting off subsidies for factory farms. I'm sick of my tax dollars subsidizing an industry that has such detrimental effects on overall health and the environment.
    Problem is, in a world in which food surpluses are the lowest in decades, organic farming and its inefficiency is really not practical on a large scale. Factory farms, while they need better oversight, are -- unfortunately -- needed if we are to ensure sufficient food in the coming decades. We need to find ways to produce MORE food. According to the UN, we will have to produce 50% more food than we do today by 2050!!! How are we going to do that? Certainly not through organic agriculture...

    These are the risks you take when you subject your body to mass produced processed foods.

    And while I don't consume them often (I eat moderate amounts of meat) I do occasionally because there are certain ones I like. Never had a problem with it. I love ham and won't stop eating it because of a few recalls... and when back in the States, you can't keep me away from liverwurst... yum....

    Its what each of us have to decide for ourselves as "Acceptable risk"... I for one have cut out almost all processed foods from my family's diet. If I wan't ham, I buy fresh and from a local farm.

    Agreed... for me, moderation is the key and sticking with companies you trust...

    I guess from this sentence that you've never visited a factory farm to see where your food comes from...For the record, I grew up on a farm where we raised black angus cattle that we ate, so I'm no anti-meat whacko. However, no animal should live in the conditions I've seen on some of those farms.

    Or maybe we could convince people to stop having litters of children. But that would fly in the face of superstitious religious nonsense, eh?

    I'll tell you what...you can eat whatever crap you want, and I'll continue eating fresh/local. I suspect more people will join me, in the future.

    I've never gotten sick from gulf oysters, but then, I only eat them raw from October - March, when the water is colder and less hospitable to bacteria. The rest of the year, we eat them steamed, with butter & garlic. Yum.
