Veneer of civilization getting a little thin?

Time Is Getting A Wee Bit Short in [Market-Ticker]


Quoting 
I'm an observer of people, by and large. I'm the guy who sits and talks with the bartender, or simply sits back and appears to be reading some article on my phone while sipping my Rum & Diet.

I peruse dozens of news sources daily, filtering all with a rather jaundiced eye, as most are horribly biased and many are intentionally dishonest.

But through all of this I've noted a shift -- one that I've seen before, but this time it's more-pervasive, more arrogant, and just generally worse.

It's the destruction of civil order, to be blunt, and the haughty arrogance that one ought to be cheering on what is happening around us. The so-called recovery. The roaring stock market. The whipping out of the plastic card instead of the Jackson for even the most-mundane, and many of those cards are not even credit or debit cards -- they're welfare cards.

Christine Chemnitz and Shefali Sharma enter the nightmare of factory-style livestock production. - Project Syndicate


Quoting 
BERLIN – Factory-style livestock production is a critical driver of agricultural industrialization. Its remorseless expansion is contributing to climate change, deforestation, biodiversity loss, and human-rights violations – all to satisfy Western societies’ unhealthy appetite for cheap meat.

How about a Roundup® Burger?


Quoting 
“…GMO Roundup Ready grass will result in a further increase in the use of Roundup, which will contaminate our groundwater and drinking water. Imagine your children & pets frolicking around in a sea of herbicidal poison. Because of inevitable contamination, the grass is likely to be eaten by grass grazing animals. There has been no toxicity testing and the potential harm to animals eating this GMO grass is unknown. Will we be saying good-bye to pasture raised meat? Lastly, it is a scientific fact that weeds will evolve to develop resistance to Roundup, leading to ever increasing amounts being applied.”

I think I also heard on the radio that the company PERDUE banned the use of anti biotics on chicken eggs. They were adding antibiotics to the injection of growth hormones because the injection in and of itself would contain bacteria as the foreign instrument entered the egg. It's good considering how popular PERDUE chicken is among the general population, maybe they'll do the same with KFC.

I think this maybe it

http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2014/09/03/perdue-foods-antibiotics-human-antibiotics-food-safety/15013253/

""The amount of antibiotics used on the farm is simply not sustainable if we want to preserve their uses in human medicine," says Caroline Smith DeWaal, food safety director at the Center for Science in the Public Interest. "I hope Perdue's actions foreshadow changes across the industry.""

Do you like the idea of getting/dying from prostate cancer?

If not, think about whether you really need to be eating eggs or poultry AT ALL.

Beef, chicken, eggs.. you just can't win. If you insist on meat eating, anyway.

Why Are Eggs Linked to Cancer Progression? | NutritionFacts.org


Quoting 
About two million men in the U.S. are living with prostate cancer, but that’s better than dying from prostate cancer. Catch it when it’s localized and our 5-year survival is practically guaranteed, but once it really starts spreading our chances drop to 1 in 3. So Harvard researchers took more than a thousand men with early stage prostate cancer and followed them for a couple years to see if there was anything in their diet associated with a resurgence of the cancer, such as spread to the bone.

Compared to men who hardly ate any eggs, men who ate even less than a single egg a day had a significant 2-fold increased risk of prostate cancer progression. The only thing worse was poultry (with skin) consumption, which showed up to 4 times the risk of progression among high-risk men. Researchers believe the higher risk might be caused by the cooked meat carcinogens (heterocyclic amines) that build up more in chicken and turkey muscle than in other meats.

I'm trying to figure out if it has to do more with the yoke in comparison with the white or if the whole thing is bad altogether. A lot of people have said the white is a good source of protein. I wonder if the tmao is concentrated in the white too?



update: I think around six and half minutes in he answers the question that the white is just as bad too.

Sucks, I've been eating eggs a lot throughout my life because of how easy they are to prepare.

unrelated: meat-eater coming to

I don't know why I eat so much meat, it's all around me and I have a problem of giving in because I do like the taste and have been doing it pretty much my whole life. I guess you could say it's a habit, but really it probably has to do with being too lazy to figure out something different or seek out alternatives. Another problem is that I'm in pretty good health regardless because I'm young and haven't been reinforced by bad health yet to make the change. But you know it's stupid to just be ignorant and not change before it's too late. I guess what it will really have to come down to is going to the supermarket and picking out the right foods instead of giving into eating out. And also finding foods that are easy to prepare so I don't cop out when I'm low on energy.


To be honest, I really don't like the animals though. When I went to the state fair I checked out the chickens, cows, and pigs and hated how they smelled and looked. I couldn't imagine why I eat them so much. To think I'm actually eating an animal that had a whole life of memories makes me sick, but this is something that flies over my head when it's meal time. It's something so easily accepted into the society around me that I don't consciously think about it much but sometimes I do pull myself back and am astonished with disgust.


I guess I'm a victim of my own demise, but I want to change. In the health thread I asked for some meal ideas. Maybe you could give me some ideas for some that are well balanced and/or easy to prepare. The post about what to add to my salad helped. You probably have some sort of grocery list yourself or article you use as a template. Maybe that's something I'll look for too.


You're probably horrified by the meal I had tonight: Peruvian chicken, Peruvian beans, and beef/chicken fried empanadas

It tasted amazing but for the same price I could probably get 3-4 healthier meals from grocery store bought goods

All that chicken skin and carcinogen you must have your hands on your face
