Monday’s Food for Thought: Chickens on Prozac?

So, I’ve never been a huge foodie…and I sadly never got around to reading “supersize me” and all those other fascinating documentaries on the sad, mixed up food industry that surrounds us these days.  I’ve always mainly shopped on the peripheral of the supermarket and never thought much of what I am buying.  However, I recently read this short piece from the NYT on some current testing in chickens in the US and I kinda felt sick and then got really frustrated.  Yuck! Yikes! Seriously!?

I tend to buy organic, especially since my daughter is now eating almost everything we eat, but organic isn’t always cheap…and sometimes it can be harder to come by.  After reading this, I am interested in researching more vegetarian options for dinner and when we do have meat (especially chicken) making sure it is organic if at all possible.

What do you think?  Do you know of more research/opinions out there?

Food for thought for sure…
