I didn't read the comments in the fridge article.  I'll have to check it out.  I pretty much skip reading comments sections regardless of the topic because they are filled with so much ignorant "wisdom." 

Chris, we have animals here raised "free reign" but I don't believe they're considered to be living a natural life inside a nature reserve.  They are basically farm-raised but given special diets and room to walk around.  (If someone here knows more about this topic, please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.) 

Napoleon, I couldn't agree more that our world population is a huge problem.  Hopefully we won't end up in a Soylent Green situation.  I'm all in support of genetically modified foods and animals for eating.  If done responsibly, I think it's the only thing that will save us.

I agree on the refrigeration topic. Very good to know.

Ad for the rest... not so appetizing.

Yesterday I was at Costco and was amazed that I didnt find anything I wanted. Usually I like the pesto. All big portions of course. I kept thinking - to annoy people, walk slow. Everyone there rush rush rush.

Re: the fridge article. The posted comments were hilarious!

Yes Chris, Soylent Green will probably fulfil the protein needs of future generations.

I never wanted children either and I never will want them but it doesn't make any difference to the overall picture because the third world has an augmented population while in the West population growth in nearly stagnant.

Children are best with mustard. Or, ahh, when changing children you think they manufacture mustard. Oh, I'm in the wrong forum here. Sorry.  LOL

Good old Soylent Green.

We can go on eating the minimum amount of meat or fish - different for everyone. But of course it only buys a little time for humanity. It's fifty years ago that I decided not to have children for a number of reasons, but I found out that it's not an example that inspires many people...

I agree Chris, many farmed animals have a poor quality of life but we can't continue eating 'bush meat/game meat' because the habitat for wild animals is disappearing along with the wild animals. It's due to gross overpopulation and I think that we will eventually start eating each other during famines and other climatic upheavals. Like the 'Soylent Green' film.

ROFLOL, Napoleon: "Could you put it in a doggy bag?" And I'd rather share a happy chow-chow with you than eat pigs and cows. I really hate what goes on in farms and slaughterhouses. But I can hardly believe the dog led a good life. I'm considering to order ´wild meat´, it's beef from untamed (what's the right word?) cattle that live in one of our nature reserves. They live the life they choose themselves until they're shot - from a distance. The meat is cut up, frozen and sent to customers. First I'll need a bigger freezer...

Spud, thanks for the article about refrigeration.  I just read one on the same topic just a few days ago.  I thought your link was going to be the same one, but yours is different.  Your article covers many more foods and is much more comprehensive than the one I saw.  

I've always kept tomatoes, melons and stone fruits in the fridge.  I guess I'll have to break that habit.  Pears aren't mentioned in the article but I've always kept them on the counter-top to ripen.

Pat, I agree about the bread. I have bread without preservatives and it starts to mold in just a day or two.
