Some Hospital's outcomes 4-5 times worse than others - Kept Secret

http://www.thedailybeast.com

The number of U.S. patients killed annually by medical errors is equivalent to 4 jumbo jets crashing each week. Some prestigious hospitals participating in a national collaborative to measure surgical complications have four to five times more complications as other hospitals. It’s the kind of data that, if you had access to it, would help you know just where to find the best care. But you don’t.

Monsanto threatens to sue the entire state of Vermont

http://rt.com

Lawmakers in Vermont are looking to regulate food labels so customers can know which products are made from genetically modified crops, but agricultural giants Monsanto say they will sue if the state follows through.

Monsanto is going mad over the proposal, however, which would also make them unable to label their productions as “natural,” “naturally made,” “naturally grown” or “all natural,” if, in fact, they are not. For the corporation, it would seem that moving products and making money is much more of a worthwhile venture than telling its customers what exactly they are consuming.

The Hunger Games: A movie about human livestock management

http://silverunderground.com

I can't remember a time my heart pounded so hard during a movie. Maybe it’s because I’m partial to Dianic huntress characters, but when it comes to provoking a purely visceral autonomic response The Hunger Games is probably one of the best films I’ve seen. I walked into the film almost completely unaware of the story. I hadn’t even seen a trailer. If you just want a reading of general enthusiasm I think this film is well worth seeing in the theater, and I left eager for the sequel, but if you’re comfortable reading some spoilers, read on.

70 Percent of Ground Beef at Supermarkets Contains ‘Pink Slime’

http://abcnews.go.com

Gerald Zirnstein and his fellow USDA scientist, Carl Custer, both warned against using what the industry calls “lean finely textured beef,” widely known now as “pink slime,” but their government bosses overruled them.
The “pink slime” does not have to appear on the label because, over objections of its own scientists, USDA officials with links to the beef industry labeled it meat.

“The under secretary said, ‘it’s pink, therefore it’s meat,’” Custer told ABC News.

Until Debt Do Us Part: The Business of Modern-Day Grave Robbery

http://www.creditcardassist.com

When Karyn Howard’s father passed away in 2008, she was convinced that it would be one of the hardest things she’d ever have to deal with. Little did she know that a call from Bank of America a few days later was about to make the ordeal much, much worse.

The systematic process of harassing people for debts they don't owe is something the banking industry is becoming known for. It keeps happening because collection departments are able to intimidate people into paying debts of deceased loved ones -- despite the fact that by law, they don't have to pay.

The 6 Most Horrifying Lies The Food Industry is Feeding You

http://www.cracked.com

If there's one thing in the world the food industry is dead set against, it's allowing you to actually maintain some level of control over what you eat. See, they have this whole warehouse full of whatever they bought last week when they were drunk that they need to get rid of -- and they will do so by feeding it all to you. And it doesn't matter how many pesky "lists of ingredients" and consumer protections stand between you and them.
