No, It’s Not a Hoax: Hot Dogs Actually Tested Positive for Human DNA

If you’ve ever chosen the prosaic American classic at a grill out, you’ve likely suffered the snarky query: “You really gonna eat that? Do you have any idea what they put in hot dogs?!”
While insect parts, eyeballs, and that one oddly unidentifiable hard bit might cross your mind, any suggestion a hot dog contains human DNA likely sounds facetious. It shouldn’t. An astonishing 14.4% of samples tested for The Hot Dog Report” by Clear Food — which provides molecular analysis of commonly purchased food brands — were euphemistically labeled “problematic.”
according to the report:
“Clear Food found human DNA in 2% of the samples, and in 2/3rds of the vegetarian samples.”
That’s not all. If you’re vegetarian or you have dietary constraints for religious or ethical reasons, it’s important you know just how little labeling matters:
– “10% of vegetarian products contained meat.” Chicken showed up in a veggie breakfast sausage and pork was found in a veggie hot dog.
– Vegetarian selections had labels exaggerating protein content “by as much as 2.5 times.”
– Vegetarian selections were also responsible for 67% of cases in the report where human DNA was detected —4 of 21 veggie samples had these hygiene issues.
– Pork had been randomly substituted for the chicken or turkey listed in the label’s ingredients in 3% of samples “in products of all price ranges.”
–  Unexpected substitutions occurred with startling frequency. Overall, the number and type of undisclosed ingredients were: chicken (10 samples), pork (9), beef (4), turkey (3), and lamb (2).
Hot dogs seem to be dubbed “mystery meat” for perfectly valid reasons.
A few hot dog brands tested quite well, upholding their label claims and leaving out the human element. Of major brands, Butterball, McCormick, Eckrich, and Hebrew National tied for top score. In the “specialty and regional” category, Gardein, Taverrite’s, and Field to Family Natural Foods garnered top spots.
“Despite the problems we found, what was most promising in our tests was the fact that there are a number of hot dog manufacturers, large and small, that are producing high-quality hot dogs with integrity. These producers are not limited to organic producers or high-end specialty brands,” the report stated.
Clear Food offers several suggestions, including staying away from chicken products if you avoid pork and shopping Trader Joe’s if you’re vegetarian.
With such unsettling findings, perhaps the question should be asked once again:
“Are you really gonna eat that??”

UK Lord Justice wanted age of consent lowered to the age of 4

Lord Justice Fulford was named last year as an adviser to the QueenHe was a key backer of the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange Police suspect the group of abusing children on an ‘industrial scale’He is revealed as a founder member of campaign to defend PIEAt the time it was calling for the age of consent to be lowered to just fourI clashed with Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) global leaders at the Wales conference in Swansea in 1977. Tom O’Carroll is still accepted and active on a sexnet chat group of experts in “sexology” although he writes openly as a pedophile. And the scholarly organizers of the Swansea conference at the University were part of his efforts. Below a summary of my intro to him in my book, Stolen Honor, Stolen Innocence, 2013. This academic pedophile lobby has continued and grown, training second generation and third generation supporters as “scholars” for pedophile equality and “rights.” In 1981 I realized they were global.

Tory MP's Private Company in Charge of Election votes and counts

Tory MP Peter Lilley’s company IDOX was given contracts across Scotland by SNP and Labour councils to quietly privatise the entire electoral process and control of postal votes and election counts across Scotland.


The contracts were awarded to ensure private control of all Scottish elections for the three-year period covering the EU election, the general election, the EU referendum and the Scottish Elections which allow IDOX to control, open, count and put forward "postal" ballot papers to be put into ballot boxes right up to the 10 pm deadline.

By May 2013 IDOX boasted they already had control of elections and voter registration and votes for 13 million people across the UK in the privatisation of all elections that most voters in the UK are completely unaware of.

Does this mean it is possible for postal votes to be binned (if private operators don't agree with the vote provided) and replaced using signatures they store electronically and can ballot papers be made up in pe…

Jill Dando tried to expose BBC paedophile ring but 'nobody wanted to know (including exclusive first look at the new documentary)

MURDERED BBC TV presenter Jill Dando raised the issue of a possible paedophile ring in the corporation - but no action was taken.



A former colleague and friend told us that Miss Dando, from Weston-super-Mare, tried to get bosses to investigate what was going on. The source said that the Crimewatch presenter was told that 'big name stars' and BBC staff were involved in abuse. A file was eventually handed to senior management in the mid-1990s, but no action was taken on the matter.
The source, who remains anonymous, said: “She compiled a file of complaints but she was not really an investigative journalist, just a presenter. “She passed the information to someone else and they gave it back. No one wanted to know.” Miss Dando was shot outside her London home in 1999 at the age of 37.
