Mcdonald's Hamburgers
 
Guess how old the hamburger on the left is? Would you believe 12 years! And this is not the oldest unspoiled hamburger on record. Len Foley has been collecting McDonald's hamburgers for over 19 years and they still look just about as good as new. If you would like to try this experiment yourself he instructs you should keep the hamburger somewhat dry, away from your dog for 6 or 7 days, and then after that, you can display them anywhere out in the open as no animal or insect will go near them. No smell after 24 hours. The bun just gets hard. No visible signs of rot, mold, age or break down...
Vegan Clinton
 
Bill Clinton shares his recent weight loss and switch to Veganism stories on CNN and then Drs. Caldwell Esselstyn and Dean Ornish talk on the benefits of a plant based diet. Studies show a vegan diet reverses heart disease in 82% of those afflicted. Dr. Esselstyn warns to stay away from anything with a mother, anything with a face; meat, fish or chicken.
Finely Textured Chicken
 
This is the result of Advanced Meat Recovery (AMR) a process by which the last traces of meat are scraped or shaved from animal bones and other carcass materials after the meat has been carved off manually. After the process the slurry is classified as finely textured meat. This particular paste is chicken -- it is the main ingredient in chicken nuggets, chicken hot dogs, chicken bologna, etc… Mechanically separated chicken is also treated with ammonia for sterilization purposes. If you see the words 'finely textured' before the name of the meat, this is what you are eating...

Duplicate of Organic vegetables start out as seed...
 
For the past year there has been an uproar in the vegetable seed business as Monsanto has purchased Seminis (a seed conglomerate that has 40% of the U.S. vegetable seed market) and De Ruiter Seeds. Monsanto is now in the vegetable seed business for the first time and it's in big time. 55 percent of store bought lettuce, 75 percent of U.S. tomatoes, and 85 percent of peppers now originate through Monsanto's fingers. If you wish to steer clear of purchasing Monsanto seed- you need to do a bit of homework, as even reputable seed companies that have signed the Safe Seed Pledge, are still selling Seminis (now Monsanto) seed. Buying seed from a seed exchange, buying open-pollinated and organic are safe ways to avoid Monsanto seed.
Four times the size of an unfertilized tomato.
 
A study out of Finland has found that plants fertilized with urine performed four times as well as non-fertilized plants and just as well as plants given mineral fertilizer. Urine is a excellent source of nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium and trace elements. A family of four creates enough urine to fertilize a third of an acre, year round.
