If you’ve got a furry friend at home, you know how tempting it can be to share your favorite foods with them. It’s a real test of willpower sometimes — especially when your dog is giving you the “puppy eyes.” Who wouldn’t want to share something delicious with their best friend, right?
Well, while there certainly some “people foods” you can share with your beloved pup, there are also quite a few foods dogs should never eat due to the potential health consequences. Many foods that are totally safe for humans to consume can actually be quite toxic to dogs. Here are 12 foods that humans should never share with their four-legged companions:
Financial/economic collapse, hyperinflation, civil war and hunger will come to the U.S. and Europe.
I would stock up on food for loooonger periods of time.
Venezuela and Yemen were both once very prosperous nations, but now parents are literally watching their children starve to death as the economies of both nations continue to utterly collapse. Just like so many here in the United States, most of those living in Venezuela and Yemen would have called you completely crazy if you would have warned them that this was going to happen five years ago. In particular, Venezuela has more proven oil reserves than almost anyone else on the planet, and so to most of their citizens it was unimaginable that things could ever get this bad. But it has happened, and the collapse that has already begun in parts of South America, Africa and the Middle East will soon spread elsewhere.
When I said that children are literally starving to death in Venezuela, I was not exaggerating one bit. The following comes from the Wall Street Journal…
During my college years in San Francisco, I had an amazing discovery: The Grocery Outlet. As a student living in one of the most expensive cities in the world, the store was a godsend. It sold packaged, refrigerated and frozen food that was either near its expiry date or had expired, at a deep discount. Needless to say, I was thrilled to be able to keep my food budget to around $45 a week. However, I wasn’t really aware of the broader implications.
H/t reader squodgy:
““Deformed” fruit and vegetables still taste good and benefit our health.
The regimentation of shape and size by government idiots reached epic levels in the 80’s when straight cucumbers and bananas were deemed to comply to rigid guidelines, resulting in massive waste.
Similarly, “Sell By” and “Display Until” dates force retailers to unnecessarily dump what, in most obvious cases is quite safe food produce.
As food shortages manifest over coming years, a re-think will be necessary, and we can only hope our dumbed down next generation millenials will adapt.”

We always knew that this would start happening. Earlier this month, I wrote about the severe economic problems that are plaguing South America, but up to this point I have neglected to discuss the horrific famines that are breaking out all over Africa. Right now there is a desperate need for food in South Sudan, Somalia, northeast Nigeria, Eritrea and Kenya. And Yemen, even though it is not technically part of Africa, is being affected by many of the same factors that are crippling nations all over eastern Africa. The United Nations says that more than 20 million people could die from starvation and disease if nothing is done. When I write about economic collapse, this is the kind of thing that I am talking about, and we are starting to see alarming conditions spread across the globe. Many believe that we could never possibly face this kind of food crisis in the western world, but unfortunately wishful thinking will only get you so far.

It’s very bad for your organs. Avoid cotton seed oil and canola oil like the pest.
