The other day I was lounging on my couch watching horrible reality TV shows and they all seemed to be about breast implants!!! Like the Real Housewives of whatever city where women are obsessing about their boob jobs, and then Addicted to Beauty about MORE people addicted to plastic surgery and boob jobs, and suddenly it all just becomes too much for me to handle. I decided to turn off the tv and replace one screen with another and check my email – and what do I have in my inbox? An email about CHICKEN PLUMPING and how companies are INJECTING chickens to increase their weight! Because CLEARLY the chickens need some work done too!
This is INSANE! Apparently, companies basically “plump” chicken with salt water, seaweed extract, and chicken stock in order to INCREASE the PRICE of CHICKEN because it increases the weight!!! WTF! Not only is this completely unfair, but the gross amount of salt that they add to an otherwise healthy chicken is absolutely despicable and creating incredibly unhealthy pieces of meat! This plumping adds 700% sodium!! OMG!
This just reinforces my personal disgust for the meat industry – they are charging people to eat chickens with SALT WATER IMPLANTS!!!
In possibly uplifting *green* news, however, a UK supermarket is printing the carbon footprint on milk bottles in recogniztion of the public’s growing environmental awareness. I wonder if this will this work as well as nutrition labels…
