The following link and article are a follow up to my above post. There is always more to the story.

Spanish cucumbers may not be to blame for deaths

Officials in the German city of Hamburg say cucumbers from Spain may not be responsible for the deadly E. coli outbreak that has killed 16 people, as initially reported. The strain of E. coli has so far killed 15 people in Germany, and most recently one woman in Sweden after her return from Germany. Tests on two cucumbers from Spain have revealed they carried the bacteria, but not the strain responsible for the deaths.

Too late,, already in the minds of the public,,,

"Russia's chief sanitary agency on Monday banned the imports of cucumbers, tomatoes and fresh salad from Spain and Germany pending further notice. It said in a statement that it may even ban the imports of fresh vegetables from all European Union member states due to the lack of information about the source of infection."


"due to the lack of information about the source of infection"

Never thought i'd cheer for the Russian's.

true. And by the way imported vegetables turn out to be much cheaper than local ones. So never know is they care about people or about economics.
Well.. I would have to eat only marinated vegetables for a while

BTW, the news say that in Germany it is confirmed that bacteria comes from cucumbers by testing 4(!!!) cucumbers from some local market...

This world is crazy...

Cucumbers do NOT carry E-Coli. This BS from the Media is only to eradicate natural wholesome good for you vegetables.

See this article:

But the media won't admit that. Because the whole agenda here is to kill your vegetables but protect the atrocious practices of the factory animal meat industries. The FDA, in particular, loves all these outbreaks because it gives them more moral authority to clamp down on gardens and farms. They've been trying to irradiate and fumigate fresh veggies in the USA for years.

This isn't about cucumbers being dangerous, because e.coli does not grow on cucumbers. E.coli is an intestinal strain of bacteria that only grows inside the guts of animals (and people). Thus, the source of all this e.coli is ANIMAL, not vegetable.

People with half a brain should not listen to the BBC, Sky News, CNN and all those New World Order Mouthpiece news outlets. All they are doing is promoting fear and panic and to deceive the population. Just like Obama and Cameron the Mainstream media are puppets for deception.

I think your cucumber sandwiches will be safe to consume. This has nothing to do with vegetables.

All the more reason to grow your own food. It is horrible seeing people getting sick and dying from food contamination.

Actually, in 2007 there was a good documentary that was an independant produce.

The documentary was about the food industry in the US, It was called Food inc. The 2 hours documentary shows how the chicken is done in 49 days instead of three months normally necessary to have a 2 kilos chicken. It was disgusting how they treat the chicken while in production.

Also they interview some farmers that have contract with Tyson that can't talk to the producer because they don't want to see their contract revoque. Tyson maintains the fear factor with the farmer because they loan money to have unnecessary update to their production. A chicken farmer earns about 35000$/year. Tyson ask to buy equipment worth 500 000$. It's normal that they are afraid to talk.

It also shows that hamburger meat for the fast food industries contains Amonium nitrate a derivate of ammoniac to help with the industry problematic of E Coli. In 2007, almost 70% of the US hamburger industries have that additive in the patty.

Whe need to wake up and ask for more biological food not industrial produce....
