The new food safety bill

It’s passage is not a good thing.

Here is a great post from our Portland clinic director’s blog. If you want to learn more about this subject, here’s a great place to go:

I firmly believe this bill has NOTHING to do with protecting the public. We’re actually supposed to believe that spinach is this dirty food from which we need to be protected while virtually every piece of factory-farmed chicken meat in this country will test positive for salmonella?

Or while thousands of people die each year from adverse drug reactions to pharmaceuticals that were found to have been passed in part due to fraudulent or faked studies?

Give me a break. This is NOT about protecting your health, it’s about protecting the profits of factory farms.

Read and learn.
