EDUCATIONAL WRITINGS-DISCOURSE, PART XIV

Educational Writings-Discourse, Part XIV: America: Third World Foodstuffs in a First World Nation—Recipe for Disaster, Part V!” by Moses Scharbug III

 

 

Bakersfield, CA, 12-14-2012 F:  Here it is, Friday, possibly the last the world is ever going to see if the world comes to its predicted end on December 21, 2012.  Whether it does or does not, all I can say is that we Jews are very fatalistic, whatever is going to happen is what is going to happen, we have been through hard times before, can, and will do it again, after the apocalypse if that is what occurs.  The world has been here for more than a billion years and it is said that we have been down this road numerous times, that the earth has witnessed at least 7-8 major extinctions, probably more.  We know, too, that when the earth was young, it was under constant bombardment by space debris—meteorites, comets, asteroids, everything was hitting the earth on a constant basis and it was through these repeated strikes that water came to the planet.  Sometimes, it is a good thing what comes from space and sometimes not, but after each ending, a new beginning comes.  Let’s face it: Iran is a dangerous nation and if what has already happened to them is not enough, then it is clear that much more is going to need to happen. Allowing them to achieve an atomic weapon of sort means that every terrorist on the planet is going to have opportunity to buy one;—if not given them free by the mullahs.  All of these movies have been preparing us for a major terrorist strike of one sort or another and the nation must always be on guard.  We have a president who is not what we need to remain strong and if things do not change in January, then we might as well meet our Maker in one week.  I do not want to live in a world ruled by thugocracies such as what rules Tehran and is sweeping across great portions of North Africa, Central Africa, Central Asia, and across the Indian Ocean.  The world is in a major state of flux and it is possible that soon, we might be undergoing monumental changes, nothing anyone wants, and I am sure. 

I realize that much of what we have talked about this past week is not the most peaceful of conversation topics for this time of year but never before have had we lived in a time when many different cultures have predicted horrifying things happening.  I never put much thought on soothsayers, prophets, and seers but what with all of the things going on around the world and numerous movies out of Hollywood, who the hell would not think that something dire is going to take place and that it might be the end of all of us.  Whether or not it is movies about invasions of aliens from other worlds or movies about the future and how far we sink as humans, who knows? It could be one or more of all of these various things so that tells me, I really cannot do much about it other than to copy my Mormon friends and have a garage full of nonperishable foodstuffs!  I am prepared for whatever takes place and am awaiting the Savior to come and take us to a better place!

Okay, today is Part V of our discussion on the dangers of Third World Foods in a First World nation and to me; it becomes clearer and clearer each and every day.  I mean, how many recalls of foods, has there been since 2000?  We have had numerous recalls of this tainted food and that and that tells me that the government is part of a big and growing conspiracy designed to separate the weak from the strong.  We never have had any issues with the American food supply until the past twelve years.  Here we go:

AMERICA—THIRD WORLD FOODSTUFFS IN A FIRST WORLD NATION—A RECIPE FOR DISASTER, PART V

This essay began about produce and will end with produce but it was important to show how the second and perhaps most deadly way of acquiring the disease (E.coli 0157:h7) takes place.  Produce and products associated with produce allows the devious illness to creep into our lives undetected.  Fruits of the field are deadly as we have already seen but innocuous avenues exist of which, one is not normally aware.  When I lived in the great Pacific Northwest, there were these fruit and vegetable drinks that were unpasteurized put out by this company, Odwallah or something similar to that name.  They had these really flavorful and tasty fresh apple juice drinks but they were NOT heated up to high temperatures required to kill the harmful bacteria and the toxins that might be present in them.  They stood behind the freshness of their products and promoted it in this way and the beverages were extremely good for most people. 

However, an outbreak of a mysterious intestinal ailment broke out in the late 1990s and the majority of those of the afflicted were children, many at a very young age.  Several became horribly ill, some died, and due to this growing issue, the State of Washington began running tests to determine the cause. 

There is but one test that is done and that is a special “stool culture” that is not done in many laboratories.  Public health authorities advised doctors and medical personnel to consider the performance of this stool culture test for E. coli 0157:H7 particularly in people with bloody diarrhea,[i] which demonstrated the true nature of the suspected culprit.  Antibiotics have not been proven to be beneficial for those with the disease so all that medical personnel can do is to help the victims “ride it out” by keeping them hydrated so they don’t die from lack of proper body fluids.  In babies, especially, this is a difficult thing to do and several died without their parents knowing what had killed them. 

When it was traced back to the maker of the popular beverages, Odwallah almost went broke paying out enormous sums when the survivors and the families of the dead took them to court and sued the living daylights out of them.  Their business barely survived this brush with catastrophe so after this event, they pasteurized every single drink in favor of safety and at the sacrifice of flavor rather than take, any chances of killing anyone else.  It should be noted that anyone buying a fresh fruit drink be advised to check the labels for pasteurization information and if not mentioned there, then to avoid them at all costs. 

According to the magazine, Food Review:

“Some sources of foodborne illness are:

·       Bacteria, such as salmonella, campylobacter, and E. coli 0157:H7;

·       Parasites such as Toxoplasma gondi;

·       Viruses, such as hepatitis A and Norwalk virus;[ii]

At least in the United States, we do have laws that are put into place to try to safeguard our health and safety, even if they don’t always function the way in which, they should.  However, the foods that we import on a daily basis into our nation have no guarantees that the standards, taken for granted by Americans regarding foods grown/raised here, to be respected elsewhere.  Therefore, every time we go to the grocery store, we must understand that we have to treat everything the same, just as if all of it came from the worst nation with which, we trade and has to be dealt with as such.  We can take absolutely NOTHING for granted anymore, that is the way it is in Twenty-First Century America!

We must understand as consumers that is not the America of old, not the days when in 1929, for instance, that California alone shipped 240,000 carloads of perishable produce to the nation and the world![iii] We practically supported our country and the world throughout the fifty years; however, after World War II, the United States slipped into a consumer mode and gradually wanted the availability of seasonal items year-round.  Once that occurred we opened the door to a Pandora’s Box of dangers and in the ensuing years, have paid dearly for it each and every time an occurrence of foodborne illness related to improperly grown or packaged products has killed or sickened our citizens. 

The question then is this: will we be able to stop the entry of disease into the United States, or that caused by careless handling of products here whether in the corporate meat butchering operations or that which is generated in our farm fields and which, the Kern County Health Department inspectors provided examples in our class?

There is a new technology that has become available in the mid-1990s, but which is still resisted by a large portion of the population due to fears stirred around by the opponents of this new science.  The process is called irradiation and it appears that it is one of the safest ways in which to protect the American consumer but which, is opposed by numerous advocates for consumer safety.  According to Rainier Mueller who lost a child to due to the ingestion of E-coli-contaminated meat at the age of 13, the process of irradiation can cure our foods from ALL disease.  He has attended government functions and met both then-President Bill Clinton and Vice President Al Gore in 1999 to discuss this new technology:

Editor’s Note: we continue tomorrow with more of this essay, one I do hope all of you are taking to heart, as nothing is more important than the protection of the foods we eat and how we process them.  Should the earth still exist and humanity with it in seven days, then this is something we must consider—irradiation—and not allow the frightened and the old-time advocates scare us into submission.  Now, more so than ever, we must protect the public from an ever-growing number of fatal diseases, all apparent within our food supply or in the numerous aliens crossing our southern borders on a daily basis to work our fields, slaughter our animals, and pack and ship our products to market.  We will discuss these tomorrow, friends! 

END PART V

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As always, we have a great time around here and that is why we want all of you to become a part of the organization by submitting articles to us for inspection and full-credit.  It is a great thing if you would do this, as it is a symbiotic relationship: we give you the space to share your recipes and in return, you send us more and more people who will become dedicated followers of the END.  Currently of multi-diversity across the Internet, it is important that we hear the voices of more and more people from all walks of the foodservice profession —join us. We urge our readership to write to us, leave comments, and if there are any of you, who would care to write an article for us, please get in touch via Magnolia Hilltop Brewers, P.O. Box 20669, Bakersfield, CA 93390-0669.  We obviously do not pay anything but give YOU full byline and that, my friends, is worth its weight in gold.  We want as many people who want to write to be able to do so and we believe that by presenting a forum for our fellow chefs, we are doing something for our beloved industry.  We love diversity and hope to add new and different authors to our pantheon of chefs, food and beverage directors, and culinary professionals.  Come on and join us, it will be fun! Expect that when all of us have run through our cycle, we will be introducing some brand-new talent or so Stinky says.

Please remember to avoid doing business with AARC Technology in Bakersfield, CA.  These people do not care about the small customer anymore but instead put all of their attentions onto their corporate customers. It is sad to not remember why one has the success they do or from where it came. Nowadays, we promote the Nerds on Call computer service, these people are phenomenal and we want you to seek service from them!

          I think tomorrow, we are going to finish this essay and then maybe, we shall discuss the ramifications resulting from it on Sunday.  I think we are going to do a brief series of foodservice articles, best of items, and other stuff over the course of our remaining time on earth and then when we return for another billion years, we will continue with even more exciting articles.  I do not want to kill myself if I am going to be killed when the world comes to its appointed end or so we shall see!                                                                      

Anyhow, let us close with this impassioned plea—please leave some comments and/or become a follower and why not spend some money and purchase an album by MOUNTAIN and/or buy a cookbook from Amazon.com—we want to make some money here so help us out by buying something!  Allied with them, we are pleased to market their merchandise! See you next time around! Bye!  

Thank you!
