Junk Food rerun - (i.e. more food for thought)

From the columns of The Daily Beast:
http://www.thedailybeast.com/blogs-a...astoriginalsR3

Excerpt:
Quote:
The ground beef used in Taco Bell products adds up to only about 36 percent meat, alleges the lawsuit recently filed against the company by a Florida woman. The rest of the meat filling, the lawsuit states, consists of things like isolated oat product, modified corn starch, caramel color, and the ever mysterious "natural flavors."
I dunno - I'd rather eat st2leman's rotten (ehr....moldy... I mean, aged) cheese collection* than let Big Corp screw around with my health, to the benefit of their bottomline.

Can't wait to have my veggie patch up and running again

Paul

*just pulling your leg, Tom...
