Outsized Fruits & Vegetables; Chicken on Steroids?

I hadn’t gone shopping in a while, so when I came upon these grapes and jalapeño peppers at Albertson’s a month ago, they seemed normal at first. At home, they looked larger than life all of a sudden, like the Grapes that Took Over the World, and Jalapeños as Big as Texas. They may be genetically-modified (in fact, I’d put money on it). Yeah, them grapes were slightly smaller than golf-balls, and twenty years ago women would have been runnin’ scared at the sight of ’em. Those peppers ain’t just big, they are hotter than Hades. Talk about getting more bang for your buck–for all I know, the whole lot is deadly poison. Sure as shootin’, I am not going back to that store for more. The chicken breasts we bought there were just enormous, probably from a fowl critter named Dolly (in honor of the lamb created in a lab, not the huge-breasted singer, Ms Parton).

After poaching and frying those pieces of chicken, having spent more than an hour in the process, we were stunned at the foam-rubber texture of the alien meat. The animals had to have been pumped full of SOMETHING unnatural to make their breasts as large as those of turkeys and render their flesh absolutely inedible. My husband, who had innocently ordered the stuff at Albertson’s butcher counter, brought all the chicken back for a full refund. Don’t let grocery stores ruin your meals–make sure the chicken you purchase is of normal size. Good thing we did not unwittingly serve this faux fowl to guests. That would have been ruinous!~~M-J

And now, the eternal question: which came first, the funky chicken enhanced by hormones, or the FREAK EGG?

Beware of Hidden Monosodium Glutamate

Elegant Survival

Monosodium glutamate is a potent excitotoxin. It  is not always listed by name on food packages where it appears in stealth-form. Dr. Leonard Coldwell introduces the unsuspecting public to this dangerous food-additive in his newsletter.


Dr. Thomas S. Lee at Naturodoc cites some sources of MSG that are frequent ingredients in edible products.

For more information, there are these excellent publications:

Blaylock, Russell L., M.D.   Excitotoxins:  The Taste that Kills, Health Press, Santa Fe, NM  87504, 1994.
Schwartz, George R., M.D. and Schwartz, Kathleen A.  In Bad Taste: The MSG Symptom Complex, Health Press, Santa Fe, NM  87504.
