A Chemical Breakfast & An Antibiotic Lunch.

      The recent "horse meat in our food" scandal seems to have left the front pages of our babbling brook of bullshit, the media, without any prosecutions of course. My main concern was not the horse meat, it was the fact that apparently nobody new it was there and nobody new how it got there. That being the case, what else is in our food that they don't know about and don't know how it got there?
      Mixing meats and labeling it wrongly is one thing, but shoving in all sorts of inedible substances, is quite another.
      We are not informed what the manufacturing process adds to our food, they use vague terms and subterfuge to conceal the array of chemicals they pump in to lengthen its self life, or to make it look "nicer" or whatever. However it doesn't stop there, no matter what you eat, be it meat, chicken, fish or veg.. before it reaches the processing factory, it will have been, in the case of the meat, fish, mostly farmed, chicken products, they will have been turned into antibiotic drug addicts by the chemical cocktail that they are feed from birth to slaughter, to make them grow faster, bigger and less likely to catch anything and be more docile. As for fruit and veg, well they are plastered with an amazing array of fertilisers, and pesticides that keep the chemical industry very busy. 
      I have for years been proclaiming the the food industry is in no way associated with nature, it is just another arm of the chemical industry. Long gone are the days of down on the farm, was where we got our food. It is factory farming, fish farms, (factories), and chemically controlled fruit and veg. all with devastating effects on our bodies and the environment.


See the fat cat’s grinning smile
as Corporate Capitalism runs amok,
Chasing profit as it goes
firing millions of ordinary folk.
Raping and polluting land after land,
starting bloody wars.
Toxic waste, sweat shop wages
and oil covered sea shores.
Where have all the flowers gone
beneath this ozone free sky?
To join the birds, to join the fox
on yonder plutonium field to die.
Mercury fish, strontium lamb
trees that never show a leaf,
radio active beaches, toxic streams
good lean BSE-antibiotic beef.
In a world of epidemic, plague and famine
it’s bottled water and chemical food.
Of course, it’s all tested on rats and mice
so you know its got to be good.
Beneath a sky that’s always black,
hurricane winds and endless drought,
its oxygen masks for the toxic air,
corporate profit’s what its all about.
