    The body will cure itself of many bacterial infections if they are not all that severe. The minute a doc finds that we have one, it is automatic that an antibiotic is prescribed. Our bodies are able to fight off many of them on its own.

There are sooooo many videos out there of the major food producing companies that are busted, yet the government looks the other way. Yeah, maybe the antibiotics help, but no wonder people are always coming down with something.
    And yet people bitch about regulation and government spending. Few realize just how many food industries there are in America. It's takes a lot of money to inspect all those installations and farms but no one wants to pay for it. Personally, I think we do pretty good considering.

    I believe fundraisers and such already require permits.

    No, we are not. There are countless videos of horrific regulation abuses, horrendous unsanitary conditions. So many times people have turned in these major companies, yet the government will turn a blind eye. I for one feel healthier and am less sick since switching to local homegrown and raised foods. Not only that but they are cheaper besides.

    Food safety is what I use as a guideline for saying "I think we do pretty good considering". How many people are (provably) sick or dead each year from commercial foods out of the megatons processed each year?

    But I have nothing against anyone shunning commercial foods. I've already stated what I think about the additives in most commercial foodstuffs.
