Beware of That Hamburger!

Here is some more to read on the issue

If You Eat Hambuger Often, Here Are Two Questions:

Does Your Hamburger Carry Dangerous Microbes?

Who Might Pay What Price for Your Hamburger? 

What Might Be in Your Hamburger?

According to a 2015 report issued by Consumer Reports with the Pew Charitable Trusts, some staff members went to 103 stores in 26 cities to buy and test 458 pounds of ground beef. “All 458 pounds of beef we examined contained bacteria that signified fecal contamination,” they reported. Salmonella, which can be very dangerous, was in 1 percent of the samples. About 20 percent of the meat contained Clostridium perfringens, a bacteria that causes one million cases of food poisoning a year, and the group found that meat from conventionally raised cows had more of some kinds of bacteria than samples from cows that mostly spent their lives in a pasture.

Who Might Pay What Price for Your Hamburger?

* The cost of water used to produce that hamburgera

* The degree of methane and related environmental pollution

* Hunger for children and anger for parents created for a growing number of people worldwide.

Should You Never Touch Red Meat?

One can answer this question only for oneself. More than half the world now had diabetes. It is my sad prediction that 70% of the world is going to insulin toxic and diabetic. It is a whole lot tougher for people with diabetes to reverse diabetes with all-vegetarian diet. Such diet, unless practiced with much knowledge and a larger financial resources has other health aspects.

A Suggestion

Here is my suggestion: become conscious of these issues and start moving in the right direction.

More on Beef

Consider the following from The New York Times of September 4, 3015: “Americans eat more than 50 pounds of beef per person each year. That’s a lot of beef. It’s also a lot of risk, because about half — or more than two billion pounds — is ground beef, which can too easily harbor dangerous bacteria. There is always an uproar after serious outbreaks of illness like the Jack in the Box case in 1993, when 700 people were sickened and four children died after eating tainted hamburgers. But as a new report points out, there is more the Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration can do to keep Americans safe and some simple things consumers could do themselves.
