      I live in cattle country in Canada - and feel 100% confident in the safety of our beef supply. We have very stringent safety rules, and frequent inspections. Also, there are no parts of the cow used for sale that could carry the BSE (mad-cow) disease. After BSE was discovered in a Canadian cow two years ago - beef sales went up, as the public rallied to support their farmers.

      When George Bush visited Canada a short time ago he made a point of saying he had eaten Alberta beef.

      As for the 17% rule - that is the first I have ever heard of anything like that -the burger sold here is 100% beef. We eat a lot of beef - although the meat in my freezer came from a cow that was given to us by a neighbour. I processed it myself - from start to finish, so I know where it came from.

          I was referring to burger that you buy from a meat shop or a local grocery. That meat is locally grown and processed. As for the stuff they serve at McDonalds, I know its not good for you - and I don't doubt they put preservatives in it - I think that all the food additives we eat are the cause of much of the cancer that now seems so prevalent. We as a culture have gotten greedy as well - we are eating far more than we did in the past. Way too much fat.(I am being a complete hypocrite in writing this by the way).

          One of the french fry suppliers to McDonalds is near where I live. Their secret ingredient - sugar. They sweeten the fries.

          We eat a far bit of wild game as well - but now they are telling us that even that can pose health risks - because of stuff in the environment.

          As for hot dogs, bologna etc. - a butcher told me to watch out for any products that contain "mechnically seperated beef, chicken, or pork" . Mechanically seperated means they throw all the bits and pieces of an animal into a drum, which is then spun at high speed, and the "mechanically seperated" "meat" is then scraped of the outside of the drum. Mmmmmmm.

          Well, I'm off to eat my spam sandwich (told you I was a hypocrite).
