Maybe the “fat” on your last ribeye is the cause of melanoma

Federal fling triggers massive meat recall


May 25, 2014

Sex, drugs & rotting cows

There aren’t a ton of rules in the Douglass household, but there’s one that kept me sane for years. Every afternoon, when my wife flipped on the tube and I heard the opening strains of One Life to Live, I ran out the door like a cat in heat.

Maybe it’s just my man gene kicking in. But there’s something about soap operas… about watching rich, beautiful people sleep with and murder each other… that I find tougher to swallow than a $2 steak.

But there’s a soap opera playing out right now in a filthy slaughterhouse in Northern California, and every man, woman and child in America needs to tune in fast. Because this little piece of theater isn’t going to entertain you much — but it just may save your life.

Federal investigators are finally getting to the bottom of a story I’ve been all over like a hobo on a ham sandwich — the sickening tale of how Rancho Feeding Corp. sold 9 million pounds of diseased, uninspected meat all across America.

And it’s a story filled with sex and lies that even the most talented Hollywood script writer couldn’t have concocted.

According to a Rancho Feeding whistleblower, the company’s plan to sell sick, cancer-riddled beef to your family wasn’t an accident — it was a heinously planned crime that had the potential to sicken MILLIONS of Americans. And it all happened right under Uncle Sam’s nose.

I don’t mean to shock you my friend, but that “fat” on your last ribeye may have actually been a stage-four melanoma. These slaughterhouse scumbags were sneaking cancer-riddled cows onto the factory floor under the cover of darkness, cutting off their malignant tumors (and even their heads) before processing them and fixing them with fake stamps of approval.

If you ask me they can’t fit these criminals with handcuffs fast enough for me — and before it’s all over, there may be a federal meat inspector in the next prison cell.

Because if you’re wondering how millions of pounds of diseased beef can get processed without the plant’s USDA inspector taking notice, the answer is easier than you think. Everyone likes a good nap after sex.

That’s right. The government lackey responsible for keeping your food safe was allegedly rocking and rolling with the factory foreman. According to eyewitnesses and plenty of X-rated text messages, the Rancho federal meat inspector and plant management were getting hot and heavy while deadly beef rolled off the line.

Who says government work doesn’t have its perks?

If you ever stepped one foot in one of these disgusting factory slaughterhouses, you’d never trust these cretins with your health again — and our government isn’t any more reliable. Start buying your beef locally, and never trust a supermarket steak.


Live 4 today. Thank God for all he has done for us. Looking forward to enjoying tomorrow.

Well, interesting.  I love meat, but feel much better if I don't eat it.  I worked in 2 slaughterhouses in the 70's.  Back when there was a full time inspector at each factory.  There was a lot of icky going on even back then. Abscesses and the like.  I won't go  into it because it would make your toes curl. But you really can't get cancer by ingestion can you? Never heard of that. Would like to hear if anyone has heard of that. 

This is a really weird story.  I hate meat as much as the next vegan and pretty sure my melanoma was a result of chronic UV exposure.  I would be interested in a story about it being spread through mosquitos though.  Know someone who has as a result of blood transfusion. 

Melanoma is VERY rare in cattle and the vast majority are dermal (your steak doesn't have skin on it) and benign. Rare cases of congenital or metastatice melanoma have been reported, but given that melanoma accounts for 6% or less of bovine neoplasia  it's a bit much to swear off meat thinking it has melanoma cells in it. Note that I said 6% of bovine neoplasias NOT 6% of cows- big difference. 6% of bovine neoplasias is far less than 6% of cows, and I will repeat that the vast majority of those are benign and associated with the skin, not the fat and not the meat. Yes, rare cases of metastatic disease have been reported, but again- RARE, and by today's inspection standards those carcasses would be discarded as unfit for human consumption.

In contrast, over 80% of grey horses will get melanoma, though it's far less common (and more aggressive) in colors other than grey. Melanoma is also not uncommon (as neoplasias go) and typically quite agressive in dogs. We actually have an effective vaccine for dogs- it was in the pipeline for humans, worked well in dogs but failed miserably in human trials. Melanoma is pretty rare in cats. My point is that this article seeks to scare people into thinking melanoma is more common than it is in cattle. Worse, it tries to scare people into thinking they can get melanoma by consuming beef. I am not aware of anything even remotely scientific to back this up.

propganda at best.
