Tuesday, February 3


Yes, I'm using the phrase ironically, because this really is a modest propsal - modest in this case being a synonym for "mealy-mouthed" or "lily-livered." Newsday lays out the facts, still unkown to most Americans, that poisons accumulate heavily in animal fat (in addition to the presence of high-profile diseases), then wonders what can be done. The strongest advice is to "Have an occasional meal from lower on the food chain." Then, as an alternative to "farmed salmon, which is rich in heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids," no plant foods that are rich in heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids are mentioned. Hmmm. Guess they don't exist. So the long and the short of it: Don't eat so much unnecessary poison, but be sure to still eat a lot.
