Campylobacter is the most common bacterial pathogen associated with abdominal cramps and diarrheal illness. Virtually all poultry, (factory farm produced chickens, ducks and turkeys) are contaminated with this Campylobacter Jejuni microorganism. Honestly, if our EPA and FDA along with the other tax funded police groups were doing their jobs, all this contaminated factory farm produced "food" would be listed as toxic biohazard poison! Washing ALL this contaminated meat with the electrolyzed hyperacidic waters from the electrolyzed water processor is the only way to effectively make poultry safe to eat. I recommend that not only the meat be rinsed, or soaked in the hyper acid water, but also that the counter tops, cutting boards, cooking pots and pans, utensils and plates be washed in the hyper acid waters also. The only subsitute for the hyper acid waters as far as I know are common household bleach and liquid stabalized oxygen. All poultry should be well cooked, perhaps even over cooked. A meat thermometer should be used for all poultry to assure the internal cooking temperature is sufficient to kill the pathogens. Any left over meat should be promptly refrigerated, and any meat not consumed within two days be thrown out. Freezing the meat in small portions for future use is best. All poultry should be reheated before eating. micowaving can possibly cause further mutation of the bugs, some studies do indicate this possibility. So, why take chances?
Salmonella is another super bug that we most frequently find in poultry, raw eggs, or any dishes made with these raw ingredients can pass on Salmonella poisoning. The Salmonella bacterium may cause flu like symptoms, fever, diarrhea, cramps, headache and muscle aches. Salmonella can be deadly to a person with an already compromised immune system.
E. Coli 0157:H7, sounds like it came out of some mysterious mad scientist laboratory, doesn't it? This unfriendly bacterial pathogen is the one we hear about the most. In just recent months everything from pot pies, ground beef, chicken, pizza, pepperoni, organic spinach, green onions, and pet foods have been recalled due to E.Coli contamination. Many deaths have been connected to E. coli. Many fast food restaurants like Taco Bell and Jack In The Box have lost millions in suits due to loss of life by food poisoning. This common super bug although most commonly found in factory farmed beef and dairy products is not limited just to these foods. Because of water run off, and the use of cattle manure for fertilizers, many organic and non-organic fruit and vegetables can be contaminated with E. Coli when the produce is watered with contaminated water, or fertilizers. Any food or water contaminated by factory farmed cow feces can cause life threatening illness in humans and other life forms. Common symptoms of E.Coli contamination include all the common flu like symtoms; painful abdominal cramps, bloody diarrhea and severe fatigue. All factory farmed meat and produce should be rinsed or soaked in the hyper acidic electrolized water before storage or preparation. And all surfaces the meat comes in contact with should also be cleaned with the electrolized hyper acid water or household bleach. All meat should be cooked at high temperatures.
Calivirus, commonly known as Norwalk like virus is extremely common and perhaps the number one cause of food-borne illness. With symptoms so common to the flu it is most frequently simply passed off as a case of the flu. Acute vomiting and diarrhea are common as the body tries to expell this nasty bug. Calicivirus is spread from person to person directly, or indirectly by anything contaminated person may have been in contact with, like door knobs, phones, keyboards, silverware, cups, drinking bottles, plates, table tops, or any foods prepared or handled by a contaminated person. The only safe precaution I know of is to thoroughly rinse all foods with hyper-acid waters from the electrolized water appliance, wash hands frequently, add liquid stabilized oxygen drops to electrolized alkaline drinking water, and eat only freshly prepared foods that have been prepared in the electrolized waters.
Perhaps you are not interested in converting to a lifestyle of vegitarianism, but perhaps some of these facts might influence such a decision. The following facts that I wrote about in Modern Foods, The Sabotoge of Earth's Food Supply, might get you to think seriously about at least reducing the amount of factory farmed meat from your diet. It could be very healthy for you, and very beneficial to our planet home.
Think about this:
* Amost 5 pounds of grain are required to produce one pound of beef.
* Sixty pounds of water are needed to grow one pound of wheat. One pound of meat requires 2,500 to 6,000 pounds of water depending on the age and size of the animal.
* According to Harvard nutritionist, Dr. Jean Meyer, reduction of meat production a mere 10% would provide enough grain to feed 60 million people. That's 30 cities the size of Las Vegas in population!
* A 10-acre farm can support 60 people growing soy beans, 24 people growing wheat, 10 people growing corn, and only 2 people raising cattle.
* During an average life time, the average person in America consumes 2,400 animals.
* Approximately 90,000 pounds per second ( that's 1.5 billion tons per year) of animal excrement is produced on U.S. factory farms, some 130 times the quantity of excrement of the entire human population worldwide! This pollutes U.S. waterways more than all other sources of industrial pollution combined!
* More than 30% of all U.S. raw materials (including fossil fuels) are consumed in animal production. Back...
