Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay.

Glued meat video

I know, I know...I promised to go away for a few weeks, but I'm back already!  My friend Barb sent me the link to this video about butchers and major chains who are glueing meat scraps together to make filets.  If THIS isn't enough to make you quit eating meat!  I am so glad I've given it up!  Here's the link to the video:  The main idea is that butchers are putting together scraps of meat with a glue made up of coagulants (which are unhealthy) and then selling the meat as filets.  Even a real butcher can't tell the difference, BUT...this meat has a high bacterial count and can make you sick.  UGH!  I'm glad I'm eating organic lettuce and dandelion greens!  I really do need to cleanse my body and system and get rid of all the toxins!  :-)

Don't think that because this is an Australian clip it doesn't happen in the US. While banned in the EU, the FDA considers meat glue as GRAS (generally recognized as safe). Why am I not surprised.

YUCK and you know it's full of sterios as well as the 'glue'.
