Thanks. Blaz


A very good sugar subsitute is organic Sucanat, it's cane sugar in it's most pure form. Look for it in the health food section of the local grocery store.

Awesome links everyone. Thank you.

Here's a Salon article from December (you'll need to click past a sponsor ad) by Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore's Dilemma.

After the spinach e.coli scare, he is speculating about the causes and risks of enhanced strains of e.coli and superbugs caused by factory farming and the centralization of food supply.

http://www.salon.com/news/feature/2006/12/07/pollan_bad_food/

In beef-processing plants, there are up to 400 head an hour, which is just -- it's impossible to keep manure off the carcasses. In chicken too, although it's a much more automated system, the very speed of this, when you're eviscerating these animals mechanically, a certain number of times you're going to break the intestines. There's going to be some mishap on the line and the manure, which I assume is the reservoir for, and again I don't know, for salmonella and campylobacter, is going to get in the bath of the water in which you've got your thousands of carcasses chilling, and it's going to spread.

I think beet sugar is vegan in the US and stevia is great for baking but super strong!

and best of all, since all the balkanian languages are the same shit, if you're any of the above: serbian, croatian, bosnian, montenegrian, macedonian, bulgarian or slovenian you'll surely understand all of it! :D
Next time, I'll spend the money on drugs instead.
