well i can't hear that video clip here so I don't really know what it is discussing, but they have been injecting chicken and other meats with all sorts of cwap for years. If you ever flip over a package of chicken look at the ingredients. it is almost always injected with some sort of broth which amps up the sodium content in it. There is obviously SOME sodium that occurs naturally in chicken but it isn't as much as you will find in there. If you consider how much that really is in your day it is a little disconcerting.

I am always amazed by people who say "yuck" to organic food like there is something wrong with it, when you are actually getting food as God intended you to have it...without all the pesticides and nasty additives.

It's not just chicken - they do it to pretty much all non-organic meats.

We try to buy organic whenever possible for this reason, even if it is sometimes a bit more spendy. I can totally tell the difference in taste, especially with chicken. Maybe it's because of the injected sodium stuff, I dunno, but organic chicken tastes more...chickeny, somehow. Organic milk tastes different, too.

I think we need to stress how organic is better for everyone - you, your family, and the environment.

Oh I didn't mean to imply there was anything wrong with the site. I could watch the video just fine but I have no ears on my computer at the real job so i could only look at the pretty flashing pictures!

Sadly much of our food (meats and veggies)has been altered from it's natural state. We try to buy organic when ever possible. It can cost a bit more but we have joined produce co-ops and searched for local farms, butchers, etc that have better prices for organic foods. We have noticed a huge difference not only in the taste of the veggies and other organic foods (the taste is so much better) but also in how we feel.

I don't turn my nose up organics--not only are you getting food the way it was intended to be eaten, but also, you're paying for 100% product. The problem with injecting the packaged chicken with broth for me isn't so much the sodium content is it is the added weight that you're paying for that you're not eating. You're pay whatever price per pound for "meat", but part of that is liquid. That bugs me. Also, "broth" usually consists of MSG and other byproducts I don't necessary want to ingest (what exactly is "hydrolyzed yeast", anyway???), and I don't want someone else making a choice for me on what to put in my meat to flavor it, thank you very much, plus, those additives are just plain disgusting and unhealthy.
