This blog started as a repository for family recipes.  Over the years since inception this thing has become a mash up.  I’ve spent the better part of my working life learning about what kills people.  My other blog didn’t feel like the right place for stories like this.  So if we’re passing along article links about food you’ll find plenty here.

I hope readers find this type of information useful.  I’m not going to discourage anyone from eating nasty fried fast food chicken nuggets processed in China from unsanitary chickens raised and slaughtered in Chile.

It’s your personal choice.

What’s In Your Hot Dog?

Where do we begin? The results of this study were surprising to these authors. Although the absence of identifiable squamous mucosa definitively refutes the oral and anal mucosa hypothesis, the truth, if possible, seems much worse. The surprising lack of skeletal muscle may have been depressingly expected; however, the wide variety of tissues present and the extensive amount of fat making up the majority of the specimen were not. And as stated before, the origin of the recognisable vegetable matter does not bear thinking about, but one result of this study is that these authors may never eat hot dogs again.
