Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.

JustMe the second link just about made me want to hurl. It's ok to feed properly 'cooked' garbage to livestock and swine? Ugh, gawd my head is now going to implode then explode. Who gave these people their brains to ok feeding of 'GARBAGE' to any animal? Do these same people then also eat these animals or do they know better?

This is where all of our designer diseases come from. What with all the toxic chemicals in all of the daily products people use in their personal lives and now not only are the animals loaded with anti-biotics, hormones but now they are full of 'GARBAGE' on top of all that. Food should have warning labels on it just like cigarettes "EAT AT RISK OF DISEASE".

There will be no elimination of disease - quite the opposite. Have to support the local farmers who do not feed garbage or animals to other animals. I pray for everyone to pay better attention as to what they put into themselves as food and their pets too.

Klondike of course they want to put anyone out of business that could even remotely have a healthy alternative to the toxic garbage that is being fed to the majority of livestock, swine, etc.

I just feel queasy with anyone cooking toxic garbage and then feeding it to animals that we in turn will then eat. Would you or anyone else for that matter eat this cwap? Now that we are learning more and more everyday exactly what they feed to all the animals we in turn eat - it just can make one so ill to think of eating any of it but lots of people can't afford organic meats/vegetables/breads/milk etc. Such a shame in order to eat healthy you have to pay thru the nose for it or be left w/no choice but the animals loaded with the cooked garbage.

actually with some planning and resources you can eat healthy for not a whole heck of a lot more. it takes a bit of effort in the beginning. you HAVE to WANT to. and it does take some determination upfront. and it requires cooking, which i've always done. but cooking has become much more simplified and healthy these days, so for those that don't cook, there are many resources for simple meals. JUST giving up processed food and fast/economical eateries is a good start (god only knows what's in their food ingredients!). i've got an organic/grass fed stew simmering on my stove right now. easily 5-6 meals. i'll freeze half as 'TV' dinners. the main thing most people will need is more freezer space  Cheesy  and that can be affordable and a couple companies (whirlpool, maytag) make theirs in the USA  Wink

people on public assistance need to check in their area. farm csa's will usually work with them and they also get donations from other members. i donated half a share for a family this winter. also, at farmers markets, you can buy veggies and fruits that are a bit blemished cheap. a bushel of tomatoes that need to be sauced that day will provide a base for many pasta and other dishes. you don't need to can. you can freeze. same with peaches and all the other good stuff. also buying bulk. you can get some bulk products at the box stores from companies that still grow and produce here, also organic. i used amazon to get some stuff (on sale and free shipping!). i bought lots of Bob's Redmill beans and other staple items. i also bought bulk (green) TP and paper towels and saved money. 6 months later and i'm still in the paper! lol!~ and it saved money that i could put towards things that weren't as cheap on the organic end and balance it out.

research, planning and determination mixed with some creativity. another thing i did was clean out all the bad stuff, makes more storage room. also cleaned out the bookshelves and donated books i no longer used and things like that to free up room. it's rather liberating! we do NOT have to eat what they want to force us to. i refuse.
