Booze

Booze in general is a growing area of fraud, but vodka in particular has been in the spotlight because some fake versions contain dangerous chemicals that can make people sick or even go blind.

What's the big problem with slideshows? If you're mobile I can see it, but ...

The farmer's market thing is a point I have tried to make before. We really don't know where our food comes from unless we grow it. And not everyone can do that. I can't. Can't even grow marigolds. My husband will be upset about the Kobe beef, though, since he raves about how much better it is than American beef. I never could tell the difference.

Good article. I didn't know a lot of that stuff. I would be mad if my milk was watered down. I pay over $4 for a gallon of it. :/

This is sad about the olive oil, but honestly if you buy a cheap $3 bottle versus a $10 bottle...you can certainly taste a difference. Its like a wine...

I love olive oil, so I am still going to keep buying it.
