Swiss Political System – Bans Boiling Lobsters Alive

The swiss political system has decided to ban citizens from boiling lobsters alive. It is very strange to me for any government entity to have any empathy. However, I doubt these bureaucrats would have this much empathy for humans.

Anyways, these clowns are making it mandatory to either stun a lobster or destroy their brain first before boiling. What the fuck is the difference between stunning a lobster first and then boiling it alive? I thought murder was murder?

“The practice of plunging live lobsters into boiling water, which is common in restaurants, is no longer permitted.”

Also, the Swiss government will NOT allow you to place lobsters under ice first before boiling them. They want you to “humanely” murder these crustaceans by electric shock or “mechanical destruction” of its brain. These last two ways sound just as bad if not worse than boiling them alive.

As a mostly raw food vegan, I never eat any type of animal meat, including that of lobsters. Actually, I have never eaten lobster. The thought of eating most sea animals makes me want to fucking throw up.

Back in the day I used to eat some fish and even way back farther in the day I ate shrimp, until I studied what shrimp really feed off of. Also, the shrimp that you know of is known to contain their feces when you eat them. Lobsters are supposedly bottom feeders, meaning they are like bugs that eat feces and other substances off the bottom of an ocean.

I could only stomach, pun intended, some breaded fish and shrimp. However, the thought of eating fish and shrimp makes me want to fucking puke. The smell alone from marine animals makes me want to vomit.

I do NOT know how these clowns in the Swiss government think that electro shock therapy or mechanical destruction of a lobster’s brain is some how humane? Also, I wonder how they would go about enforcing this kind of legislation.

Tyson Plant Locations – in Tonganoxie Kansas Employees 1600

Tyson Foods Incorporated decided today September fifth two thousand fifteen to build a three hundred twenty million dollar chicken processing plant. As a raw food vegan, I still monitor food such as animal meat and processed food. This chicken plant will be built in Northeastern Kansas that will allegedly employ one thousand six hundred employees.

Tonganoxie Kansas will be the site of this huge chicken plant. This city is located in Leavenworth County. A feed mill, hatchery, and plant is part of this facility.

Local chicken farmers and ranchers will contract with Tyson Foods. This company claims that demand for chicken is why they are building another poultry plant. Animals being butchered at this plant won’t begin operation until two thousand nineteen.

This chicken will be sold in retail stores nation wide.

“More people want fresh food and as one of the world’s leading protein companies, we’re well-positioned to provide it. We believe this new operation, which will incorporate the latest production technology, will enable us to meet the sustained growth in consumer demand for fresh chicken.”

One million two hundred fifty thousand chickens will get murdered at this plant. I am a raw food vegan, so I will use strong language. Tyson Foods claims that this will bring in one hundred fifty million dollars to Kansas per year.

Local and state government bureaucrat’s of course had their say regarding this plant. Tyson Foods is going to purchase around three hundred acres near Tonganoxie, Kansas. Construction will begin later this fall.

Food and agriculture supposedly accounts for forty five percent of Kansas’ eCONomy. I wonder how much money is spent on raw fruits and vegetables in this state? I guess animal processing plants are here to stay.

As long as I still have access to raw fruits and vegetables, then let them eat chicken.

Expresco Foods – Recalls Listeria Contaminated Chicken

Expresco Foods Incorporated decided to recall some of there chicken on August twenty third two thousand seventeen.

This chicken was packaged between August nine through fifteen two thousand seventeen. Two types of chicken were recalled.

This is a Canadian Corporation. This chicken was shipped to retail outlets in Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan and Texas. No reports of any illness from this chicken have been confirmed.

A routine inspection was performed which alluded to the possible Listeria contamination. This chicken should not be consumed. It is recommended that you either discard this meat or return to place of purchase.

I was not able to obtain information pertaining to possible refunds for this product. However, you can call Expresco Foods at 1-800-205-4433. You would think they would pass out refunds for chicken possibly tainted with Listeria.

As a raw food vegan this does not affect my daily life, since I do NOT consume animal products. There are constant food recalls in America. Many of them deal with animal products.

Choline and Weight Loss – by Eating Eggs & Meat Cause Disease?

A recent study performed and released in Circulation, shows that Choline which is common in chicken eggs and animal meat, may cause some diseases. This study was performed on vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores. Initially, researchers were trying to find why meat causes heart disease.

They found evidence that perhaps choline which is prevelant in eggs and animal meat, is a culprit. They claim that choline feeds a gut bacteria, that causes your blood to become sticky. This can potentially cause heart attacks and strokes.

A group of vegetarians, vegans, and omnivores were given a choline supplement for two months. Researchers noticed a ten times increase of trimethylamine N-oxide, which has been linked to creation of cardiovascular diseases.

“We showed that as plasma TMAO levels go up, platelet responsiveness also goes up. It happened in a dose-dependent fashion, and it didn’t matter if the vegans kept eating a vegan diet. If they had a high TMAO level, they weren’t protected. Their platelets were hyperresponsive. A platelet that is prone to aggregate like this is a risk for clotting.”

These results were published in an April twenty four two thousand seventeen issue of Circulation. What I find interesting is that even vegans whom consumed this albeit synthetic choline were not protected from possible diseases, even with there no meat no eggs nutrition.

However, in take around seventy days for any symptoms of this bacteria to show. According to a Tennessee health alert:

Blue Bell Creameries – Cookie Dough Supplier Source of Listeria

The Houston Chronicle has reported that The Food and Drug Administration traced Listeria that was in Blue Bell Creameries products to their third party cookie dough supplier. This company is named Aspen Hills.

Last October, Blue Bell Creameries issued a voluntary recall of all their products that included cookie dough. Aspen Hills denied their cookie dough included listeria, before being shipped to Blue Bell Creameries. Also, Aspen Hills issued a voluntary recall.

The Food and Drug Administration found listeria, when investigating this companies facility. The Houston Chronicle claims that owner of Aspen Hills plan on closing this business. This company ceased operations end of last year two thousand sixteen.

Some listeria was found in a finished product that had not yet been shipped out. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention investigated listeria outbreaks with Blue Bell Creameries. Ten incidents were documented including three deaths.

Allegedly, Blue Bell Creameries does not currently have a dough supplier. The Food and Drug Administration sent Aspen Hills a warning letter after completing their investigation. So far neither Blue Bell Creameries or Aspen Hills responded to the Houston Chronicle.

Listeria is a monocytogenes bacterium food poison. This bacteria is found in water and soil. The Food and Drug Administration was able to link Listeria found in Blue Bell Creameries products to their Aspen Hills investigation. Blue Bell Creameries has suspended their business relationship with Aspen Hills.

Aspen Hills Incorporated is an Iowa based company. Blue Bell Creameries is located in Texas. I was not able to find out if any persons are facing criminal charges at either company.

Blue Bell Creameries was able to continued to conduct business after a listeria outbreak that killed three people. Actually, Blue Bell Creameries will begin to sell products in Arizona and Colorado again March of two thousand seventeen.
