I haven’t been keeping up with my promise to myself. I thought that a post a week was doable with two young children at home. Family life does take it’s toll on a persons personal time. In fact personal time isn’t in my vocabulary anymore. LOL
I have many interests in how our society functions (or malfunctions as the case may be). The troubles we all bring upon ourselves in the spirit of capitalism and basic human survival I suppose. Recently I read this article regarding the food industry. This is another, not surprising, revelation about our food preparation practices. Another reason of many not to trust what you eat. And yet another reason that one must take it upon themselves to move with caution in this crazy time we live in.
What I am talking about here is the packaging of fish of all things. It turns out that you may be 39% likley to eat mystery fish at your next scrumptious seafood meal. This is according to a recent study by an Undergrad Research group at the University of Calgary. Using DNA analysis, these students uncovered what seems to be the true nature of “what’s in that sushi?” They found that in there tests, Salmon was actually Rainbow Trout in some cases… go figure. Worship that all mighty dollar! Jeez… They also have found that it IS illegal to falsely label food products and mislead the public. (of course) However, vendors may bend the rules by labeling fish by family rather than specific species. Way to go lawyers!
I just wanted to note this for the record. If you are reading this, make sure you question “What’s in that Sushi?”
