You say "There have been major accidents at these plants. Workers
have been exposed to radiation. Radioactive water has been poured into
public sewer systems." I don't know what major accidents you are
referring to. Yes, workers are exposed to radiation. All people are
exposed to ionizing radiation. I work in the nuclear field with both sealed
sources and loose contamination and I get more exposure to ionizing
radiation when I'm out mowing hay than I do in the lab. Further, packing
plants would only be using sealed sources, so whatever is exposed to
the sources will not pick up or become radioactive. It's just like you
getting a chest x-ray. You don't become radioactive, but you do receive a
You say "The human body was not designed to eat meat, even organic,
free-range animal meats." On the contrary, human morphology is a prime
example of an omnivorous animal. I know - I researched the topic during
my 17 year sojourn as a vegetarian. We have teeth adapted to both
tearing meat and chewing vegetables. Our intestines are neither as short
as canine intestines, nor as long as herbivore intestines. Etc., etc. I think
our designer knew what he was doing.
And the connection between ruminants contributing to "global warming"
has been dismissed several times.
You touch on some serious issues that I agree with. And I am definitely
not pro-nuclear nor am I in favor of food irradiation. I produce pastured
zero-antibiotic meat on my farm, sold directly to customers on-farm.
However, I think you might want to familiarize yourself with some of the
areas you discuss before making such accusations and assertions.
Those of us in favor of clean food don't need to give the others easy
ammunition to use against us.
