btw, why would people who eat animals CARE which part of the cow they're eating? when they chew on t-bones from steak to get the last morsel, aren't they maybe eating some of the stuff that would be in the so called slime? and people boil animal parts to make soup stock/bouillion/stew-y dishes.
we used to teach how resourceful it was of pre-historic civs to use all of the animal. how come t-bell isn't being lauded for resourcefulness??? it's "green" of them!
are we just discussing this cause it's nasty and disgusting? don't most of us think ANY animal consumption is -- wait for it --- nasty and disgusting?

Yuk., Bye the way, I read that when meat starts to go bad in the supermarket it is often soaked in bleach. I once bought a piece of mahi mahi for my daughter and on the package there was a picture of a lemon and the words, lemon fresh. When I got it home and opened the package it was obviously spoiled and the market had used the lemon juice to try to mask the odor.
I also always tear the plastic wrap on boxes of mushrooms and sniff them to make sure they are fresh. And often also tear bagged potatoes. I have been stung too many times.
I have also noticed that even the fruits and vegetables have a better color and look fresher in the super market, no doubt due to the lights. That nice red tomato always looks a lot duller when I unpack it at home and the dark, shiny purple eggplant somehow loses its luster between the market and my home.

I even stopped eating cereal(Kashi cinnamon wheat) , because of the levels allowed by the government pertaining to "bugs" acceptable that accidentally get into it during processing(google it)
I will just stick to my whole plant foods, starches, and fruits

did you read Euell Gibbons, too? he was an interesting character!
isn't it interesting that anyone w/ a viewpoint that's not in sync w/ "mainstream america" is viewed as wackadoodle by pop media? instead of searching for a truth hidden in message, the press takes off on campaign to discredit the messenger.
course that's a generalization, but it was interesting to see VJ's reference to Adelle Davis and recall the nastiness of the fourth estate back in the day....
