FOOD DOES IT AGAIN
This blog is a medical malpractice blog…. dedicated to discussing issues surrounding health care in the United States. Today, I digress, just a little. Its about our food supply, so yes, today, its about corporate negligence. I read in the Washington Post this morning (link below) that a recent batch of Peter Pan peanut butter is being linked to salmonella poisoning. “Hmm,” I thought to myself… That is what I had for breakfast yesterday (needed the protein). So – I walked back to our office kitchen, and sure enough, the same batch number. And people wonder why I (along with Millions of other Americans) buy organic foods over non-organic, or why I pay extra for beef and chicken that has never seen a hormone or antibiotic injection. SO my closing word is, HEALTHCARE is as broad term. Take care of yourself, do the research on what you eat, the doctors you see and the medication you take. If we don’t require corporate accountability, its up to the consumer to do be proactive. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/02/14/AR2007021401486.html Enjoy!
