'Pink Slime' Controversy Changes How We Look At Our Food

Filed under: FoodHealth

gross-pink-sime-stuff.jpg

Ever since the whole "pink slime" controversy reared its disgusting head, consumers have begun to question their food more and more.

People no longer just walk into the grocery store, grab a pound of ground beef and walk out.

They pay for it first. LOLz!

But before they pay for it, they find out where the animal was raised, what that animal was fed, if there were any hormones or steroids used.

Even with produce, consumers want to know what sort of pesticides were used if any and if it comes from a local farm or is shipped in from out of state.

The director of the Downtown Farmers Market in Des Moines, Iowa said:

"There was a time when people were pretty complacent about their food and just trusted someone else was going to take care of them. The dialogue has changed a lot. Now people want to know who is growing their food."

We think this is a great trend. Making healthier choices is always a good decision.

It's nice to know that something good is coming out of this whole "pink slime" fiasco.

Accountability is probably the biggest change, now farmers have to realize that people are going to want to know exactly what they're doing.

And if no one likes what they're doing (pesticides, hormones, steroids, etc.) then people will stop buying and that farmer will have to change their strategy or else risk losing the farm.

Gotta keep the consumers happy. The customer is always right!

This doesn't make us happy.

New research shows that American children are experiencing stress on a whole new level - and unfortunately, it's on the rise.

Suicides among adolescents have quadrupled since the 1950s and only 36% of 7th graders agreed with this statement: "I am happy with my life."

The worst part is that in just the past decade alone, medications to treat emotional disorders in children have shot up 68% for girls and 30% for boys.

Experts say that this is how stress works in a child brain:

Tori spelling hospital

Oh no! We hope everything is okay!

Tori Spelling was rushed to an El Lay hospital on Sunday morning by her loyal husband, Dean McDermott, because of "horrendous migraines".

The Tori and Dean reality star has apparently been suffering since she gave birth to her daughter, Hattie Margaret McDermott, on October 10th. The day before she was taken to the hospital, Tori tweeted:

"Anyone else get horrendous migraines right after giving birth? Is it hormones? I've had one for a week now. Nothing is working."

We hope those docs gave her something to subdue the pain! Feel better, gurl!
