I don't eat Big Food, Big Chains, Big Restaurants. It pays to be a food snob and shop organic at Farmer's Markets and local, organic, sustainable restaurants instead.

Try not to buy non-American produce because there aren't enough food inspetors to make certain the food coming in is safe. Also don't frequent fast food, or even the medium food cahins. And definitely won't buy salad mixes since you never know where the contents are from - many sources mixed together does not always mean safe. Noted with thanks.

Hoping they found the cause...I try to stay away from food grown outside the USA.

You cannot currently send a star to Carrie because you have done so within the last day.
