Dirtying Up Our Diets

“Writing in the New York Times, Jeff Leach uses the example of the simple farmer’s market as an analogy of what’s missing from so many of our lives. In a word: dirt. The heads of lettuce and bunches of carrots of yesteryear were awash in various microorganisms, and no one even considered that to be a problem.

Today much of our food is pasteurized, irradiated, sterilized and made so that bacteria – even the good kind – can no longer survive.

When there are outbreaks of food poisoning, the blame often falls on federal agencies to make the food supply cleaner, but what is overlooked is why our own immune systems failed to protect us from what should be normal bacterial exposures. “

Via Lew Rockwell
