MRSA ‘Superbug’ Bacteria Found in Detroit Meat

If the facts outlined in articles on GMOs aren't enough to give you chills over the "Frankenfoods" we are consuming,  this one will do it.  We are human guinea pigs at the mercy of the food corporations, processors, and bio-engineers of mass destruction.  Meat and poultry have long been exposed as sources of human illnesses due to antibiotic misuse, growth hormones, vaccines, filthy feed and slaughter lots, and cruel practices of caging animals who become so crippled that they can't stand upright.  Those foods are then shipped to markets for consumers, who are kept ignorant of the health risks from eating these contaminated foods.   

"First they were riding on bedbugs. Now, drug-resistant superbugs are showing up in supermarket meat. Raw beef, chicken and turkey from Detroit grocery stores contained methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), a sinister strain of bacteria that doesn’t respond to typical antibiotics, researchers reported..."  MRSA ‘Superbug’ Bacteria Found in Detroit Meat

“We’ve known for a long time that raw meat and poultry purchased in supermarkets can be contaminated with bugs that can make us sick, like salmonella and E. coli. As long as we clean our hands and our utensils and we cook the food, we kill the bacteria,” said Dr. William Schaffner, chair of preventive medicine at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. “Even though this is a new bug, that shouldn’t change anything. It should just reinforce all those messages.”

MRSA ‘Superbug’ Bacteria Found in Detroit Meat  is an eye opener for us.  The food options are increasingly limited as we face an escalating food crisis brought about by contamination and genetic modification.  One choice present to us is to spend the extra money on organic meats and poultry free of chemical manipulations and horrific food processing conditions.   Many of these franken foods are made of scraps collected from the filthy floors of slaughter houses. They are made into a paste which is then formed into beef patties or chicken nuggets, sausages, etc.  and sold to the consumer.   I have a number of resources archived on these specific topics and will be posting more shortly.
