Every sense Serial Killer was talking about her organic lizard, I have been thinking about the benefits (they say) for eating organic meats and vegetables (I prefer meat myself). I do know that beef, pork, and poultry grown for mass consumption on most farms are given antibiotics and steroids to make them grow faster and bigger. They are also given corn and other grains for feed that have been stored in silos and have gotten moldy.
Remember, antibiotics are made from mold (fungus). Drugs like penicillin are way over prescribed and doctors either don’t know or ignore the long term side effects of the mycotoxins (fungus waste products) left in the body, which can have devastating results on health over time. As far as the grains: The mold can be removed during processing, but the mycotoxins cannot be removed. Not even during cooking. mycotoxins are Poison, thus the toxin part of the name. How long do you think you would live (not to mention you would feel crappy) if you took a little arsenic (poison) everyday? mycotoxins have the same effect only it takes much longer. So basically, it seems most of the human food supply is contaminated with these mycotoxins.
You may ask: How does a dog who is not quite house broke yet know all this stuff? My mistress watches a show called Know the Cause. You can find it on the web at www.knowthecause.com If you have a human you love, I would direct them to this program.
It is interesting that dog food (although it is pretty dry and tasteless compared to human food) has way more vitamins and minerals than people food. Just something to think about.
