Chlorinated chicken


 In Britain we are about to leave the European Union although 48% of people who voted in the referendum voted not to leave.

To put this in context a ‘friend’ accused me of scaremongering and put a long post on my page saying that chlorinated chicken is marvellous and anyone who was against it were lefie remainers who are apparently too woke??? (what the hell does that mean).

Now I feel guilty because I am speaking against the USA system. But this is what I found on a post on the BBC website on 8 March 2019, and I am using their facts, not my own.

If you read the fact check on the website. ‘is chlorinated chicken bad for you?’ they state that using chlorine is not harmful and cleans up the chickens surface, but this can mask problems inside the chicken where high levels of bacteria can be found like campilobacter or salmonella. It also states that poor hygiene and badly run, crowded abattoirs are hidden by this process. When the two methods of producing chicken were checked, much higher levels of harmful bacteria were found in the chlorinated chicken. So no I will not be choosing it to eat it. 

Why is snot green?


I’m feeling quite unwell, sneezing and coughing, so I had a chat with my hubby who studied science.

If you don’t want to read more please leave the room..

The answer is it doesn’t have to be. It depends on the bacteria causing it.

Sorry if you are eating.

It’s a complex muco polysaccharide according to my hubby, made up of sugars in very long chains. It acts like a dye. Being green or yellow or other colours. It depends on the bacteria causing it. Viruses are colourless so I guess if you have one and get coloured mucus you might have a secondary infection?

So anyway on that note I will get some honey and lemon.
