All Business, Good & Bad

Sometimes, an awful consumer experience. Let's call them out. Okay, mostly. But sometimes awards. Yes? All the accounts are truthful. The names have been changed to protect the innocent and guilty alike. Email me with your stories and I'll include them.

Seafood + China = WTF?

I'm a little late on this one, but here we go, from WorldNetDaily:
According to a new report by Food & Water Watch, the aquaculture industry crams fish and shellfish into facilities to maximize production, generating large amounts of waste, contaminating water and spreading disease if left untreated. The industry tries to control the spread of bacterial infections, disease and parasites by pumping the food supplies with antibiotics and the waters with fungicides and pesticides.
Jesus, man. Ewww, gross! Anything and everything that makes me shiver about eating things I am unaware of eating is manifest in this article. Now, I have never gotten my seafood (or any food) from Wal-Mart, but knowing Wal-Mart eats up 10% of all China's exports, that's one more reason to demonize the disease of a chain.

China is questionable as a world power. Wal-Mart is a known consumer cancer. They both need to be deflected from their current trajectories.

    Having read the article I have begun to doubt whether today there is some food that is worth eating. It is all filled with some unknown to us substances with strange names. But then the question occurs: how to live then?

    You're absolutely right. It seems as though most potential food sources are tainted with preservatives, processing chemicals, drugs, or poisons. It gets even more difficult if you're trying to balance local, organic, and carbon footprint concerns. Aside from building a multi-dimensional matrix, we just have to do live - with our health and conscience - based on our best choices.
