Front of the Los Angeles Times website there is currently a story entitled Food-borne pathogens carry devastating long-term effects. It's about salmonella and how it's introduced into foods from animals. The article is here.

So what would you expect the photo accompanying this article might be?

Here it is




Thumbnail image for Picture 83.pngTomatoes of course!  Those darn tomatoes are responsible for all the sickness!

Is this sending a visual message that fruits or veggies are the thing to fear -- when the reality is the sickness and devastation is caused by cattle and animal agriculture?

Don't get me wrong, it's great that they're doing an article about this. But I guess they can only go so far.

Drives me crazy when they blame produce...if it IS
contaminated it's with fecal matter/manure from farm ANIMALS! It all stems from the poor, sweet, tortured animals. With 1 in 3 chickens being contaminated with salmonella, ecoli or campobactor, a person has
a far greater risk of contamination when they eat animal flesh and animal products.

Tomatoes are so high in vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants. They are a crucial item in a healthy diet. Whereas eating animal foods invests in one's
future disease(s).




Killer tomatoes, murderous spinach! What makes these veggies so fearsome? Animal manure, of course!
