And WHAT ABOUT PALM OIL that Health Organizations banned because it CONTRIBUTES to
CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES
BUT
CUSTOMERS ARE EATING BECAUSE IT IS NOT LABELED????????????

OR IT IS LABELED UNDER THE "VEGETABLE OILS" PURPOSELY SUMMARIZED LABEL,

OR IT IS LABELED UNDER AN INCREDIBLE LIST OF CHEMICAL INGREDIENTS INSTEAD of

ADMITTING: PALM OIL????????????????

Palm Oil - Health: Blood Lipid and Cholesterol Effects
The U.S. Center for Science in the Public Interest said Palm Oil (high in saturated and low in polyunsaturated fat) promotes heart disease; Report cited Research going back to 1970; also said that The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, World Health Organization (WHO), and other Health Authorities urged reduced consumption of Palm Oil; WHO states that there is convincing evidence that palmitic acid consumption contributes to an increased risk of developing cardiovascular diseases. A 2006 Study by the National Institute of Health and the USDA Agricultural Research Service concluded that it's not a safe substitute for partially hydrogenated fats (trans fats) in the Food Industry, as Palm Oil results in adverse changes in the blood concentrations of LDL Cholesterol and apolipoprotein B just as trans fat does.

Palm Oil - in the Cooking Industry
PALM OILís increasing use in the commercial Food Industry... because: 1) Palm Oil has the LOWEST Production COST of the major Oils, and 2) Products last more time in the Supermarket shelves!! for the high oxidative stability (saturation) of the refined product when used for frying. Many processed foods contain Palm Oil but it is NOT DECLARED on Labels!!! Or Label simply says: "Vegetable Oils"!! Try to read a Chips Packet Label, just as an example!! This is a real offence to all of us, but particularly to VEGANS and VEGETARIANS devoting their lifestyle not to hurt animals, while, like all customers, they are unwillingly and unconsciously contributing to the SLAUGHTER of Tigers, Elephants, Rhinos, Wildlife... and GENOCIDE of Orangutans, who share 98% DNA with us!!!

If you can't afford to not feed the kids slime,
you can't afford to feed the kids,

Slime is WORSE than nothing!

If some male legislators wish to get together and eat 'pink slime', if in fact that's what they did, that is their prerogative.
That's what is known as being a RIGHT FIGHTER. Their need to be right, is greater than their need to act intelligently, even if it kills them.

On the other hand, most of us, would rather behave rationally, and err on the side of caution.
Heaven forbid, this sounds like it makes sense!

Using 'pink slime' should be restricted to rodent chow. It's not fit for people or pets. It's just like what Tobins Sausage Factories got caught doing putting floor sweepings, dead rodents, and other wastes in their meat grinders back last century! Result: No more 'Tobins First Prize' floor sweepings sausages!
