TAKING STOCK AND STOCKING UP

Whether restaurants and bars reopen sooner or later for inside service, we all will have time to rethink our habits and begin wondering why we put up with poor, sometimes abusive service, poor quality food – poorly prepared many times.

Is climate science really real? Depends on who’s behind it

TAFC ClipBoard: The most obvious question to me when considering that fourteen percent of methane gas on the planet comes from burping cows, is what are they eating to make them burp and pass gas so much? I know they’re large animals, but the food they’re eating and the drugs they’re taking must have somethingContinue reading “Is climate science really real? Depends on who’s behind it”

Faith and food: How personal beliefs shape food choices

TAFC ClipBoard: In my view, religion doesn’t have much to do with what people eat. Nowhere in the bible or teachings does it instruct people to eat animals; in fact it does the opposite: “Genesis 1:29 And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of allContinue reading “Faith and food: How personal beliefs shape food choices”

CC VIRUS SPREAD BY FOOD?

If it can be spread by a dollar bill and a credit card it can be spread by food. Especially if the animal you ate had the virus.

Since when is WebMD an expert on all matters foodContinue reading “CC VIRUS SPREAD BY FOOD?”

Human-monkey hybrid grown in China for organ transplants

TA-FC ClipBoard: China said not that long ago that they wanted to lead the world. I guess the world should have known it would be in the area of exploitation of non-human animals.
