    Americans throwaway enough edible food to feed the entire continent of Africa. We need to find a better way to recycle the edibles that we toss.

    a very wise statement,
    but of course NOT just for 'americans'!

    but one must never 'lump' ALL of any 'peoples' together, sounding like they're all clones of one another -
    and have no individuality that their Heavenly Father has given, just for them alone,.. not nice, we're all
    related, 'one-way-or-another'!...

    Yes, Bill,

    so many of us have been witness to not only the 'waste', of the new-non-perishable, but the 'waste' of
    human existence through 'indifference/self'...how many remember this 'mile-stone' in their lives?
    if one did notice, then it could only come from Jesus giving us our memory of this, and prayfully,
    He will graciously 'drag one out' from serving the world, to serving our Saviour...

    if we 'toss our brother and sisters aside, they can't be recycled', or can they be?...

    You can say that, but we will add another billion people to the planet by 2030. By 2100, we will br approaching 12 billion inhabitants. We are not gaining anymore land.

    Tommy,

    you are 38yrs. old, and still believe in men's tales - we are living in the 'end-times'...

    for those whom are called, elected, and chosen, set your house in order now, this is what
    our Heavenly Father has told us both to do in all of His ways', and this is what we are doing...

    We were in the "end times" 2000 years ago. We might be in the end times another 10,000 years or more, so you better get your house in order or you will have billions on top of billions, starving to death.

    True... And I'm aware. But it's totally possible to find smaller operations that don't do that. 99% of the beef I eat we've raised. Not from modified crud either. It's difficult to find and pricey but it exists. But reality is most foods are in some minor way modified by our current technologies..... I just think minimizing the man made crud in them is best.

    There is a scheme over here, where super markets give unsold food to charities.
    This mentions a couple but others do the same.


    Tesco to give all unsold food to charity after finalising deal | The Independent



    Plus I don't know if you noticed but the article refers to wonky veg.
    It use to get thrown out, now it's sold as wonky veg cheaper than the
    rest.

    I get wonky veg from my supermarket its cheaper and just as good.

    I'm curious, in the US do you have organic and free range food to chose from?
    We do in the UK. It use to be very expensive but the price gap isn't that big anymore.
    I think more and more people are turning to it.

    All our produce is "organic." All our cattle feeds on grass until they are transported to slaughter.

    Organic, free range, and grass fed are marketing scams.

    I refuse to buy into the Whole Foods supermarket scam. More like Whole Paycheck. They sell hamburger that cost 10 dollars a pound.

    Organic means something different over here. Have a look at this.

    https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/howto/guide/organic


    The Department for Agriculture and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) states that:
    ‘Organic food is the product of a farming system which avoids the use of
    man-made fertilisers, pesticides; growth regulators and livestock feed
    additives.
    Irradiation and the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs)
    or products produced from or by GMOs are generally prohibited by organic
    legislation.

    Organic agriculture is a systems approach to production that is working towards
    environmentally, socially and economically sustainable production. Instead, the
    agricultural systems rely on crop rotation, animal and plant manures, some
    hand weeding and biological pest control’.



    Organic agriculture is about a way of farming that pays close attention to nature.
    It means fewer chemicals on the land such as artificial fertilisers, which can pollute
    waterways. It means more wildlife and biodiversity, the absence of veterinary
    medicines such as antibiotics in rearing livestock and the avoidance of genetic
    modification. Organic farming can also offer benefits for animal welfare,
    as animals are required to be kept in more natural, free conditions.

    Organic food even tastes different. Corn fed chickens actually have
    taste. Bananas are sweeter, cucumbers don't just taste of water etc.

    Honestly? If it was cheaper that ordinary meat I probably would. I am the kind of person who scans the store for the cheapest version of whatever I need.

    ...but, since they want to make money of everything it would probably be more expensive just because it was special

    I guess I have a lousy sense of taste because I don't notice any difference (Lucky me!)

    My initial reply was flippant, and I hope people understand I was joking in my own particular, sick fashion.

    ...even though I DO eat SPAM and such. Hey, get off my back about it!

    Would I eat lab-grown meat? NO. No I would not. Although I am not any shining example of how to eat properly, I do much better than most people I know, and that is clearly evidenced every time I go grocery shopping. My cart is filled with basic ingredients and I prepare meals from scratch at home, while most others I see are piling mounds of frozen dinners and packaged/processed foods into their carts. I try to adhere to the axiom of "If I can't pronounce it, then it has no business going into my body", and I use that when I check the ingredient list on a product. If it sounds chemical, it is, and it's not good eats. Now, I don't have a lot of credibility saying these things, since I look on the scale and must peer OVER the crest of my pot belly to see the number on the scale and do the math in my head to see I am still about 70 pounds overweight, but my biggest issue is not WHAT I eat so much as it is HOW MUCH I eat, and HOW LITTLE exercise I get or get access to with my living situation. So yes, a fat little bugger like me is pontificating about eating right. Deal with it.
