    yes, and no. I used to eat a ton of microwave popcorn until I figured out it was bad for ya. Plenny of other ways to cook the corn and it's a good grain, evidently. so many tasty spices to put on corn. like the chemical cream flavors for the coffee, bad but tastes so good. https://www.livestrong.com/article/4...y-bad-for-you/

    You are correct. https://www.healthlinkbc.ca/health-topics/tu6533 "When a cow is slaughtered, parts of it are used for human food and other parts are used in animal feed. If an infected cow is slaughtered and its nerve tissue is used in cattle feed, other cows can become infected."

    Not that I'm too concerned with mad cow these days, BUT it highlights another reason that feedlot cows are not the way to go if you're going to eat beef. At least when you can make a conscious decision when purchasing your meat. That's pretty disgusting that they put recycled cow into feed and feed it to the cows. WTF?! What's to say something like the mad cow epidemic couldn't happen again with another disease if not mad cow. I know it's not always an option or affordable for many, but man, for those who are able, it is REALLY nice to know exactly where your food comes from. I definitely trust the local hippie microfarmer so much more than a giant corporate feedlot/poultry/dairy operation, that's for sure.

    And wow, Flowing. That's sucks about your father. I had no idea.

    That's how the guy we knew went out too. Took like 3 weeks after he was hospitalized... Horrible, awful dementia not knowing where he was, or who any of his friends and family were. He was terrified most of the time all confused and stuff. I wish that horror on no one. Bad, lethal food comes in all shapes and sizes unfortunately, lettuce most recently of course..
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    Feedlots don't feed cattle based feed to other cattle. Not legal anymore.

    FWIW i own a feedlot, but i'm like a millionaire in Jackson trying to compete with the billionaires. Pretty rough gig.

    Your major cost of business, cattle feed, is falling through the floor though, against steady consumer demand. You can live a little, brah.

    he loved a thick steak.

    I had a friend who made a pet of an orphaned fawn. About 3 weeks later, he was hospitalized with an encephalitis, irregular heartbeat, and high fever, which burnt him pretty bad.
    Docs said tick or flea-borne virus. He was never the same afterward. Something like narcolepsy, he'd drift out but not enough to drop things.
    His symptoms went critical about 15 years later and he passed like your dad. Steak had nothing to do with it.

    Week 1 down without the red meat. Miss the carne asada burritos, but the shrimp, scallop, lobster rigatoni tonight was amazing.

    Just curious but is that annually, I guess?

    Food production is about 1/3 of all greenhouse gas emissions.

    And yet:
    12.9 percent
    Some 795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life. That's about one in nine people on earth. The vast majority of the world's hungry people live in developing countries, where 12.9 percent of the population is undernourished.

    Those numbers don't really make sense. One in nine is like 11.1%, right? So only 12.9% in developing countries are undernourished doesn't sound the vast majority.

    You mis-read that.

    He said the vast majority of the worlds hungry people live in developing countries.

    Not that the vast majority of people in developing countries are undernourished.

    No, that's how I read it, and that's why I'm confused about the 1 in 9 part of it. It seems that developing countries only have about 1.8% more undernourished people than developed countries?

    Things you can find on the internet.

    But yeah. On original content, the food we make could probably feed the world if distributed in a perfect fashion. I imagine there would be less food waste in those starving countries though. Completely unrealistic, but the emissions to produce food for everyone would increase that GGE. Or we could change the way we do things.
    We're fucked in my lifetime, but not fucked enough that I will likely see complete meltdown. But maybe.
    I just want comfortable digestion. It's all I can really live for.
