Look - any idiot could see - by reports in the media, that the incidence of E-Coli infecting everyting (From a MS water supply, to beef to peppers to other vegetables) is on the rise. We NEVER had this many issues in the past.

Is ANYONE with a brian even curious if this is a new method of terrorism? E-Coli would be a cheap, easy means by which to expose a population to unhealthy situations, cause death, disrupt food chains and - in light of the "Mexican debacle" - cause disruption to the economy.

Even if not as effective as a 911 attack, it would - none the less - disrupt our lives.

Has ANYONE ever seen a posting, report that discusses the suspicious nature of these "outbreaks"? Why - all of a sudden - is this a New issue?

Can the CDC answer that?

Is there a rash of unsanitary workers in ALL fields NOT washing their hands after defecation? Should we think that ALL third world/other countries have such poor sanitary conditions that infections - via feces - is entering the food chain at rampant pace?

Nope - I truely think something much more deviant is occurring here...... How about you?

Terrorists want to kill us not give us a severe case of intestinal malfunctioning. Some people just have poor sanitary habits and we're stuck with them...no more/no less than that.
