Traveling around BC, I saw signs about reporting "poachers and polluters" through something called RAPP. YIKES!! Polluters are now as bad as poachers. Does that mean if I throw a banana skin out of the window as I travel down the Trans Canada, I'm a polluter, and therefore a criminal? If I idle my car too long, will I now be thrown in jail? Ridiculous! BC thinks those growing BC bud are GREEN, it is biodegradable and organic. The smog you see around Vancouver is not CO2, it's the smoke from BC bud! Well that doesn't bother me, I don't do drugs, but if Vancouver wants to live in a drug haze, so be it. Remember they dump their raw sewage into the ocean, but Suzuki says nothing about that.
Where I absolutely draw the line, where I make my stand, is on hot dogs.
Group wants food-makers to put warnings on hot dogs
NEWARK, N.J. -- Hot dogs may be as American as baseball and apple pie, but a national cancer-awareness group says they're hazardous to your health and should carry warning labels.
The Washington, D.C.-based Cancer Project, a vegan advocacy group, wants to force hot dog makers to use warning labels. The group filed a lawsuit Wednesday in Superior Court in Newark on behalf of three New Jersey residents. The defendants are Kraft Foods Inc., manufacturer of the Oscar Mayer brand; Sara Lee Corp.; Nathan's Famous; and the makers of the Hebrew National and Sabrett brands.
The lawsuit cites a report by the American Institute for Cancer Research that concluded regular consumption of processed meat can increase the risk of colorectal and other forms of cancer.
Consumption of processed meat.... and only hot dogs are targeted? I dare all of you reading this to tell me how many processed foods you have in your fridge, pantry and especially in your freezer, right now. Cheese? Luncheon meats? Bread? Pizza Pops? Frozen Waffles? Sara Lee anything? Canned soup? Canned veggies? The list is endless. Next time you are in the grocery store pay attention to all the people going for the frozen food products. They have no fresh veggies in their carts.
Vegans can eat all the veggies they want, I don't care, but when they attack my favorite food, the hot dog, they have gone way too far!
I bet they sit and stuff their faces with ice cream and chocolate in the summer, but hot dogs, the king of processed foods are now bad? I suggest the vegans go up to the Arctic, find some poor old polar bears and let one group feed them lettuce and the other feed them hot dogs, let's see which group wins.
Hot dogs are the ultimate comfort food....you will have to pry it out of my cold dead hands with my beer and chips.
