While we're on the topic of food ...
Don't get too smug if you're a fresh food junkie. Don't get us wrong, it's great that you never give in to fries and tacos and donuts ! But according to BuzzFeed, we need to be wary of fresh produce as well !! Some of these facts will scare you ... some may make you physically sick !
About one quarter of America's raw meats test positive for FLESH-EATING bacteria.
Shrimp are often fed untreated ANIMAL FECES.
Chickens are fed ARSENIC to make their flesh pink.
Apples, celery and peppers contain more PESTICIDES than any other produce.
Tuna can cause mercury POISONING.
Farmed salmon contains eight times more of the TOXIC, cancer-causing chemical PCB (polychlorinated biphenyl) than wild salmon.
So I guess the moral of this blog is, wash your food really well ?! Then wash it again ... and again. We're not going to want to eat anything at all soon !!
