Love Cucumbers? Tainted Ones May Be In Your Salad Right Now? Tainted food coming to you at your local market!

I talk to people all the time on the problems with our food, no matter where it comes from. Now that California cannot grow its crops because of water restrictions, more food is now being imported from countries such as Mexico.  India and China are not the only countries that export tainted foods. Add Mexico to the list as well.  Just  because we are neighbors, does not mean their imported food is safe to eat. Remember the majority of the foods that are imported are not tested nor checked by the FDA. They do not have the time, nor the inspectors to test all of the billions of pounds of produce, meat, and fish that comes through the import process. Only a small percentage of food is tested, the rest just gets a nod and goes on through straight through to the company that sells it. This is the truth. Research it for yourself.  You want to think your food is tested because it makes you feel better when you eat your salad. 

This week's recall is cucumbers from Mexico.

Tainted Cucumbers making people sick this week.  RECALL ordered.

The California company who imported the cucumbers from Mexico is now dealing with a recall of the cucumbers due to salmonella.  One person is dead and 285 others are sick in 27 different U.S. states.  Here is the excerpt from the article here below:

"The company, Andrew and Williamson Fresh Produce, said it is recalling all cucumbers sold under the Limited Edition brand label from Aug. 1 through Thursday.
The cucumbers were produced in Baja California, Mexico, and distributed in at least 22 U.S. states, the company said in a statement."
Worry about Moringa but Worry MORE about the other foods you are eating!

More and more produce is coming from foreign countries whose standards are crude with no real way to properly wash their produce. When bathrooms are not readily available in those countries, where do they go? In the fields.  Where do they wash their hands? They don't because there is no way to wash their hands.   These same workers prepare the veggies for shipment to the U.S. company who sells it.  He does not test the shipments of veggies. Inspectors come once a year to make sure his company is adhering to proper procedures. The majority of the year, it is up to the integrity of the owner of that company to do proper safety steps on the veggies they sell. Testing may happen here and there but not on a regular basis.   If he tested every shipment,  you would be paying 5 bucks or more for each head of lettuce.  Testing does not always catch the problem. Testing involves samples taken from a large shipment. The tested samples may prove negative, because only part of the shipment is tainted. 

You write me all the time about Moringa but you don't realize the food you eat from your friendly supermarket is much more dangerous.  You question Moringa, which you should, but you don't question enough the other foods you eat on a regular basis. You eat more salads generally than Moringa.  You eat more antibiotic infused meat and eggs than Moringa. There is pesticide residue in everything. You eat pork that is raised in horrible conditions but you don't think about it.  

You need to start realizing Moringa is important, but all the rest of your diet is much more of a problem.  Modern big farm meat and produce is slowly poisoning us, with antibiotics and pesticide residue.  Those chemicals end up as toxins in the tissues and organs of the body. They cause all sorts of health problems and eventually disease.  It is a huge problem for people living in big cities who have few food choices on where they buy their food.  If you are poor, you cannot afford organic. You may not live near a farmer's market or may work hours that don't allow you to shop them.  It is the elephant in the room, that people don't want to talk about.   

What Can You Do?

Buy Locally when possible at a Farmer's Market.

Buy US grown when possible.  Look at the tags on the produce or ask the produce manager about the origin of the veggie or fruit.

Wash well any fruit or veggies, even it it says they are prewashed. Don't count on that being done properly or safely.

Buy organic if you can, it is worth it despite some of the articles.  Wash them well.

Grow your own veggies if possible in pots or in the ground. There are veggies that are meant to be grown in small plots or in pots. They were developed to take up less room including cucumbers and Take part in a community garden if there is one near you.  It is worth the time to do so.  If you don't have time, enroll your kids in a community project.  It will get them away from their phones.    

This is all for today. Have a great Labor Day Weekend! Kate Freer
