Recently, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced plans to “relax” federal meat and poultry inspections, allowing meat processors greater leeway in policing themselves, already the agricultural trend. But most food activists ask how standards could be relaxed any further when drug residues, heavy metals, cleaning supplies, gasses, nitrites, hormones and other unwanted guests contaminate the meat supply. They are almost all unlabeled.
Hamburger chef Jamie Oliver has won his long-fought battle against one of the largest fast food chains in the world – McDonalds. After Oliver showed how McDonald’s hamburgers are made, the franchise finally announced that it will change its recipe, and yet there was barely a peep about this in the mainstream, corporate media.
As the meat industry again makes news thanks to an endless stream of articles about horse meat masked as beef popping up all over Europe, the “pink slime” story is still playing itself out in courthouses, law offices and the one BPI plant still in operation.
Five weeks before the Internet went mad over the presence of “pink slime” in ground beef across the U.S., the product’s creator was being inducted into the Nebraska Business Hall of Fame.
A type of liver disease once thought to afflict primarily adult alcoholics appears to be rampant in children.
Some 1 in 10 children in the U.S., or more than 7 million, are thought to have the disease, according to recent studies.
The condition, in which the normally rust-colored organ becomes bloated and discolored by yellowish fat cells, has become so common in non-drinkers that it has been dubbed nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
The disease’s prevalence is alarming doctors who worry about its progression to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, or NASH, when the fatty liver becomes inflamed and cells are damaged. That leads to the end stage of cirrhosis, when the liver forms scar tissue and ultimately stops working.
The condition’s rise is tied to the obesity epidemic—about 40% of obese children have it—but isn’t caused solely by being overweight. The disease appears to be growing among normal-weight children too, experts say.
Do you have a sweet tooth? If so, your dietary habits could be significantly adding to your risk of developing cancer. New research published in the journal Nature Medicine has confirmed that processed sugar is one of the primary driving forces behind the growth and spread of cancer tumors, so much so that the future of cancer screening could rely on scanning the body for sugar accumulation.
Scientists from University College London (UCL) in the U.K. made this discovery after experimenting with a new cancer detection method that involves utilizing a unique form of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). After sensitizing an MRI scanner to look specifically for glucose in the body, it was revealed that cancer tumors, which feed off sugar, light up brightly as they contain high amounts of sugar.
Shocking photos posted on the internet claim to show behind-the-scenes filth at a Golden Corral restaurant. The photos appear to show filthy dishes stacked nearly head-high, with food waste littering the floor right next to beverage service carts. Three employees are clearly depicted in the photos, and they appear to be wearing uniforms consistent with those worn by Golden Corral employees.
The photos (see below) also show overflowing trash cans and food refuse so thick that employees are walking all over it while mountains of filthy dishes appear to be ready to collapse onto the floor.
All photos are shown below.
Adding to the apparent filth, a young man who claims to be a Golden Corral employee has posted a shocking video that he says shows Golden Corral hiding fresh meat near dumpsters while the restaurant undergoes an inspection. Once the inspection is over, he explains, the food will be carted back into the restaurant and served up to hungry customers (but without all the flies).
Below, take a look at some of the shocking photos from the dishes area. All the bolded comments are my own…

Hey, do I get free Obamacare with this job?
And to think, this was just the appetizer round!
Everybody FREEZE! Or this whole thing may collapse and we’ll have to excavate our way out!
Golden Corral name badges
By the way, how do we know these are Golden Corral employees and not people working at some random restaurant? The name badge and uniforms give it away.
Take a look at this P.R. announcement of Golden Corral bringing jobs to Springfield, MA. Here, you can clearly see the Golden Corral logo and name tag on these black aprons which are part of the Golden Corral uniform.
Now take a look at a zoomed-in image of the black apron and name tag from the “dirty dishes” photo shown above:
See the shocking video: Baby back “dumpster” ribs!
Hungry for some “dumpster ribs?” A man named Brandon Huber posted a jaw-dropping video a few days ago which has already garnered over one million views. The video claims to show fresh food being temporarily “hidden” in the dumpster trash area behind the restaurant while Golden Corral undergoes an inspection.
Since she was about five years old, Georgi Readman from the Isle of Wight in the U.K. has been eating primarily ramen noodles and nothing more for virtually every meal. And now the 18-year-old girl is suffering the health consequences, as reports indicate that her persistent aversion to fruit and vegetables has rendered her severely malnourished and about as healthy as an average 80-year-old.
It all began when Georgi first savored the artificial flavors and salt chemicals laced in a packet of ramen noodles when she was a child. She almost immediately decided that ramen noodles were her food of choice, and gradually phased out all other foods, including nourishing foods like whole fruit and vegetables. Today, she eats ramen noodles for almost every meal, even though it has caused her quite a few problems both bodily and socially.
“I hate the texture of fruit and vegetables,” says Georgi, as quoted by the New York Daily News (NYDN). “I can’t go to my friends’ for dinner or go out for meals because I don’t want them to see me freak out if the side salad touches the stuff I eat.” Continue reading »
