There Is A Staggering Amount Of Feces In Our Food

Most Americans are eating significant amounts of feces on a regular basis without even realizing it. You might not mind this, but most people out there would not willingly eat feces if they could avoid it. Not only is it disgusting, but feces is also a breeding ground for all kinds of dangerous diseases. Unfortunately, as a result of the never ending quest to cut prices even lower more of our food is being imported from overseas than ever before.

Many of those countries do not have the same health standards that we do in the United States. In fact, many farmers in those countries actually feed feces to their fish and to their animals since it is so inexpensive. If you are eating seafood that was imported from Asia, there is a very good chance that it was raised on pig feces.

Not only that, the truth is that a lot of the poultry that comes from Southeast Asia is also raised on pig feces. The FDA has rejected thousands of food shipments from Asia in recent years due to fecal contamination, but the FDA inspects less than 3 percent of all imported food. So what are we to conclude about the other 97 percent of all food imports that the FDA did not inspect?

A recent Bloomberg article entitled "Asian Seafood Raised on Pig Feces Approved for U.S. Consumers" explained that much of the seafood that is imported to the United States from Asia is actually raised on pig feces.

A lot of people were grossed out by that article, but there have been no calls for a congressional investigation. There have been no calls to cut off food imports from Asia. Most people will forget about all of this in a few weeks and will continue to consume large amounts of imported crap.

The Bloomberg article also talked about the fact that less than 3 percent of all imported food is inspected by the FDA...

About 27 percent of the seafood Americans eat comes from China -- and the shipments that the FDA checks are frequently contaminated, the FDA has found. The agency inspects only about 2.7 percent of imported food. Of that, FDA inspectors have rejected 1,380 loads of seafood from Vietnam since 2007 for filth and salmonella, including 81 from Ngoc Sinh, agency records show. The FDA has rejected 820 Chinese seafood shipments since 2007, including 187 that contained tilapia.

If the FDA has found such widespread contamination in seafood coming from Asia in recent years, shouldn't something be done about it?

If nothing is done, Asian seafood companies will continue to send us boatloads of seafood contaminated with feces knowing that there is more than a 97 percent chance that a particular shipment will not be inspected.

According to Michael Doyle, a microbiologist from the University of Georgia, using feces to feed fish and shrimp is quite common in Asia. Many fish and shrimp that we eat spend their entire lives swimming around in a disgusting pool of animal feces...

It said most of the cases of contamination involving imported food in the U.S. are related to exposure to fecal matter. The group cited how, in Thailand, chicken coops with as many as 20,000 birds are often suspended in rows above ponds used for farming shrimp and fish. The sea life feeds on the chicken waste that falls in the water.

In an interview, Doyle said food producers in China regularly use untreated human and animal waste for feeding farmed fish meant for eating and for fertilizing land to grow produce.

"(Feces) is the primary nutrient for growing the tilapia (in China)," he said.

Sounds yummy, eh?

Ah the globalism is wonderful...

Do you think it is the time to boycott all of these?

Love my seafood and I was raised in a fishing community as a fisherman. Love prawns, bugs and crabs. Sad fact is that they all eat waste, be it in the ocean or a farm. They are bottom feeders and they eat rotted dead things and waste as part of the natural process of life rather than fresh meat and vegetables.

My mother in law lived during WWII in England and was told that prawns and crabs ate the bodies of pilots shot down over the English Channel. She still won't touch any seafood whatsoever.

"The use of human and livestock waste in semi-intensive fish culture, subject to certain safeguards, can generally be considered positive in any holistic assessment of risk (Edwards, 1993). Semi-intensive systems fertilized within the carrying capacity of the system are healthy environments for fish." - http://www.fao.org/docrep/006/y5098e/y5098e07.htm

It's only a bit of poop...

Probably does our immune system a bit of good having trace amounts of feces in our food.

Although it's unlikely there will be much of it left after proper cooking.

There is probably just as much cr** in our food. Have you not seen the movies about the chicken farms or the beef with cancer tumors? Kind of reminds me of the whole germ thing. You know you can't avoid em, can't kill enough of em to make a difference, the only thing you can do is strengthen your immune system. Truthfully though I'm more worried that the employees are spitting in my Del Taco Food.

11 Totally Disgusting Things the FDA Allows In Your Food

What could be finer than a little feces in your spices or a cigarette butt in your sandwich? Perhaps some rat hair in your peanut butter?

Sounds disgusting, but the Food and Drug Administration says that a certain amount of contamination is unavoidable in commercial food processing, so it allows for a small amount of "filth" before taking action.
