Worker Bees’ Daily Bites:

What a stew! Today’s ingredients: secrets you might not know about meat, the government crackdown on “criminal” raw milk farmers (aren’t there terrorists to find?), and the latest health care progress in Washington, D.C.

Where’s the Beef?

Swimming in saline, that’s where. A great article highlights ten secrets of meat you may not be aware of. To wit: many (most) packaged meats are injected with saline solutions to make them plumper, tastier and longer-lasting. No wonder we have blood pressure problems!

[…] Anyway, back when ye ole Daily Apple was but a seed in Sisson’s mind, we were seriously perturbed by the early research we were digging up. Perturbation #1? The fact that most commercial chicken breasts – the kind that go into McDonald’s sandwiches, for example – are up to one-fourth water and chemicals and salt. We thought this fake pumpery was ridiculous, but this (click at your own risk!) is simply unacceptable. When Russia won’t import your chicken, something has to be done! […]
