    No surprise there. Corporate America owns us as long as we allow it. Poison us with their products, poison us with their "sickcare" solutions. Eat it, pop it, and inject it my little puppets!
    We are in a state far worse than sad...especially when the majority refuse to acknowledge it. Ignorance is bliss I suppose.

    Moral of this story: Eat More Beef. [​IMG]


    Seriously though, that has the scent of conspiracy theory. There were hardly any hard facts or references in that article. Take everything you read on the internet with a grain of salt.

    That said, I believe that this is an excellent excuse to begin raising your own meat!

    The food was probably efficient at weight gain as well as cheaper than alternatives.

    Colored Egg Farmer Chicken overload

    Only thing I can say is Raise your own and you know everythign that goes in it.. Except the worms, bugs and ever other flying/moving insect that will unluckly pass them by.


    and 2nd. they probably should have used a better picture as that looks like a laying operation and not a meat operation. I don't truely beleve that article as I have never seen that site and I know of a lot of sites that don't publish totally true information but I woudn't deny that they put it in eather as they put enough other drugs in as well.
