Court slaps down meat industry efforts to avoid country of origin labeling on meat products


Shady efforts by the meat industry to sidestep having to inform consumers about where its cattle are born, raised and slaughtered have ultimately failed, as a U.S. District Court recently struck down lunatic claims that the new requirements somehow violate free speech. In her 76-page ruling, Judge Ketanji B. Jackson rejected claims by the meat industry that new U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) meat labeling requirements violate the First Amendment, a strong judicial move that represents a solid victory for the truth-in-labeling movement.

But one easy way you can proactively avoid the potential toxicity of meat this summer is to simply marinate it first.

Misguided scientists declare all-natural amino acid compound in red meat to be 'bad for the heart'


The anti-meat segment of the mainstream scientific community has come out with yet another new study condemning meat as damaging to human health, this time claiming that an all-natural, amino acid-producing substance naturally found in red meat causes heart damage. Demonstrating a complete lack of scientific rigor (which is increasingly typical of corporate-funded research these days), the new study essentially declares that l-carnitine must be responsible for an all-around increase in heart disease because saturated fat is clearly not responsible, according to the data.
