July is National Hot Dog Month, a whole month (31 days) dedicated to celebrate the hot dog and July 23 is the peak day of that month long celebration.
Now I’m not going to go into the ingredients of what comprises a hot dog, but I will say this
Hot dogs, bologna and dog food were all invented during the mass slaughterization of cows and pigs. Long ago we got our food from family farms, then factories and profits took over and we developed a way to slaughter over 100,000 animals a day.
The rich get T-bones, New York strips, rack of ribs, rib eyes, hams and pork chops, but not everybody can afford those cuts of meat. So with tons of scraps left over they manufacture it one more time (thousands of new jobs and profit) and feed it to dogs and poor people.
We get hot dogs, bologna, ground beef, sausage, deli meat, salami, turkey bacon, and Spam to name a few. The dogs get the same ingredients too, look on the bag as it is written. Price separates quality, nobody will give away the good stuff.
Pssss (don’t eat it)
The USDA and our government releases every 5 years “Dietary Guidelines for Healthy Americans” (read report here)
“Consumption of lower-quality or incomplete protein is of greater concern when protein needs are high. Additionally, recommendations to lower calorie intake to combat obesity by increasing plant-based food intake must be linked to cautionary messages to maintain protein total intake of sufficient quality at recommended levels“.
Our government doesn’t feel obliged to tell what sufficient quality stated in the report means because we can not afford to ruin the industries and put that many people out of work.
- The doctors who treat the diseased and sick (food poison)
- Insurance companies who sell to both patient and doctors
- Lawyers who litigate for the patients, doctors, and industries (beef recalls)
- But of course the farmers and families of the factory worker.
Too big to fail?
I say NO
It’s population control for our government. The people who eat the meat will be diseased (heart attack, stroke, cancer and mental illness from chemical additives) and die.
