Another massive beef recall

Original post made by Walter E. Wallis, Midtown, on Aug 16, 2008

That supermarket and that restaurant that announces that all meat and poultry served or sold has been irradiation sterilized will get my trade just as I preferentially buy only pasteurized milk and in-can sterilized foodstuffs. I want non-irradiated or non heat sterilized foods labeled and isolated from the good stuff. The same nature boy idiocy that brought us $5/gallon gas, 20 cent/KW juice and the loss of our forest industry also kills thousands and sickens millions every year with salmonella and other preventable food born maladies.

Bring back the smart use of DDT too and save millions of lives.

The "Silent Spring" was a religious fraud, nothing to do with science, just like fat boy Bores hot air scam.

Walter, contemporary American poultry plants have to produce 250 _million_ units just to break even. GIven what little even I know about biogenetics, that's appears to be more than the beginning of a perfect pathogenic storm.

With another 3-4 billion people expected in the next 50-60 years Web Link your grandchildren's children better get used to a new diet, because it isn't going to be meat based.

Mike,

So, what are you saying? It's Okay for the human species to allow it's numbers to increase not only beyond the point where the world's poor are impacted, but to the point that what we consider the 1st world now, must live in the terms of the current 3rd world?

Am I saying it's OK? No. Am I saying that it's going to happen? Yes.

If we we were talking about a time range for population growth that would accommodate cultural education re: the downside of population growth, that would be one thing; but, we're not going to change prevailing attitudes about that significantly enough during the only 5-7 decades that will bring that growth.

We'll either adapt to that change are end up very unhappy campers. btw, oil isn't part of that forward solution, and neither is suburban sprawl.

So, Mike, who you gonna let live? Your Malthusian solution is to thin the herd biologically? Now I know you are Paul Ehrlich.

Irradiation just approved for green vegetables. How many people died because it was not approved when its feasibility became know? That is the stupidity tax.
