Similar to a previous dissection they had performed on hot dogs, the researchers discovered waste and by-products including connective tissue, nerve tissue, cartilage, bone, and in a quarter of the samples, Sarcocystis parasites. But surely these “fillers” were the minority, right? Unfortunately not. After crunching the numbers, the researchers found that the amount of actual meat (muscle flesh) in the burgers ranged from 2.1 percent to 14.8 percent.
Both Canadian and American health officials have frequently given warnings about the dangers of bean sprouts, which have been responsible for well over 40 food borne illnesses around the world caused by either E.coli or Salmonella bacteria in the last 35 years or so.
Where’s the beef?
More than 75% of the cases were in patients between the ages of 20 and 50, and as of May 18, there have been 70 deaths.
I’m still wondering what the cause was of all of the other reported deaths???
Alltop has developed a page devoted to H1N1 news. I’ve added links under Public Health and Alltop on the sidebar.
As you probably already know, the “official” death toll from H1N1 in Mexico is considerably lower than the original counts. Non-mainstream media outlets are reporting much higher numbers of fatalities than the “official” number from the WHO. The question now is troubling – if H1N1 was not the cause, what did all of these people die from?
I find it odd that the confirmed number of 2009 H1N1 cases being reported continues to trend downwards while the WHO continues to maintain its pandemic flu alert rating. Even from the normal reliable sources, it is becoming increasing difficult to determine the truth.
CNN and other news outlets are reporting what may be a human to pig transmission of the 2009 H1N1.
After you read about the last panic in 1976, read this NYT article. You will learn a little about the cultural and health care infrastructure aspects related to H1 N1 mortality.
