Foods banned in the US…

May 2, 2008

I was checking out the Consumerist and they reported that Fortune magazine has compiled a list of 9 “forbidden’ foods that have been banned in the US.   Here’s the list:

  • Trans fats:  Banned in: New York City
  • Raw milk: Banned in: 21 states
  • Absinthe: Banned in: The U.S. (sort of: Absinthe is legal in the United States, contrary to popular belief, as long as the spirit’s levels of thujone – a toxic chemical present in wormwood, one of the herbs used to make absinthe – do not surpass the Food and Drug Administration’s limit of 10 parts per million.).   Interestingly enough I was reading an article a few weeks ago and some researchers discovered that also back in the days the presence of thujone was way below the current limits.
  • Foie Gras:  Banned in: Chicago
  • Uncertified Chilean sea bass:  Banned in: The U.S.
  • Horse meat:  Banned in: California, Illinois and other states.  I did not know that this was banned.  Long story short my granpa owned lots of horses and sometime when they were not good for what he needed they would end up as Horse meat.  I was really a kid so I don’t remember any details, but I am pretty sure I never wanted to try it.
  • Wild Beluga caviar.  Banned in: The U.S.
  • Shark fins.  Banned in: The U.S.
  • High-fructose corn syrup.  On the endangered list in: San Francisco

Interesting list…

    Кстати, если закончаться фото Одри, то можешь в фотошопе старые фото накладывать на новый фон, так и разнообразие будет и ты работать продолжишь

    Что то слишком мудрено… И по-моему расчитано на блогера чем на вебмастера
