I am so tired of researchers feeling it is okay to give the public crap products because they feel there is no evidence to support it being harmful for human consumption. The mentality of waiting until there is a public outbreak of food borne illness is not the time to start presenting this research. While this article gives a clever spin on "pink slime safety" I still feel revolted. Let's speak out. They claim prices will go up without the LFTB in our beef supply, but here's an idea: Get rid of the LFTB, sell what we already have, do not increase suppy by 1.5 million cows, AMERICANS DECREASE YOUR CONSUMTION OF BEEF!!!! Seriously. More cows= more pollutants, more E Coli outbreaks, more manure run-off into our depleating water supply, MORE UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES!!!
