USDA Allows Unsafe Meat to Be Sold

This a great article by Dr. Greger explaining why the USDA allows the selling of unsafe meat and blames the consumer if he/she gets sick.  Dr. Greger says that American meat is contaminated with fecal matter and food pathogens to the extent that is a danger to public health. Patricia Griffin, director of Epidemiological Research at the Centers for Disease Control, puts it well: “Is it reasonable,” she asked, ‘“that if a consumer under cooks a hamburger…their three-year-old dies?”

Please visit Why is it Legal to Sell Unsafe Meat:

The extent of corruption in our food system is appalling. Unfortunately, the USDA cannot be trusted to watch over the safety of food to any extent. It’s up to the consumer to make educated decisions about what to eat and what to feed one’s family. I believe we walk on much safer grounds when we avoid eating animal products and focus mainly on whole-unprocessed plant-based foods.
