I make my own bread, my own tortillas, and I have a great recipe for doing pizza that just knocks any pizza parlor down!

I cannot imagine why it is that all these extras have to be included in our foods; why can't they use the basics like I do?

I read the article and almost threw up. I like(d) bread and now may never eat it again. I am starting to think most foods are derived from something hideous. I am thinking of going fresh only...then I just have to worry about solmenella, e coli. etc. Now that I think of it..NO food is safe for consumption so I may go to a liquid diet. Now that I think about that, water isnt even safe and my dog wont touch Coca Cola plus I use that to clean my battery terminals. Man can someone PLEASE tell me what is safe to eat ??
Oh and I am a fat girl and I used to like food. I may have to let my Weight Watchers membership expire. I think I will lose plenty of weight when I die from thirst and starvation. I gave this a star and a flag. Must go throw up now..

That's actually an interesting question. According to the article, certain religious groups have huge issues with this, likely due to passages meant to forbid cannibalism.

They made diamonds from Michael Jacksons hair. Google it.

But I rarely eat commercial bread, and if I do its freshly baked from a nearby shop and shipped to the store, ingredients as simple as can be. Commercial bread is nasty, so are lunch meats. Baking your own bread is a chore, and hard to get right because the outside gets crisper than you'd like the first few times until you get temperature and time right, and the bread can come out drier than you'd like if you don't use enough fat - same with biscuits. But homemade and bakery made is so much better tasting, and usually just a little bit more costly than the big brands which are full of high fructose corn syrup and other weird ingredients...

In the olden days people never ate this way, it was all fresh and natural, they have lived to a ripe old age naturally, it was not until these types of shortcuts began that we started to see a rise in disease. I think it is totally unavoidable and it is just one more disrespect thrown at humanity, uselessly and covertly. I too am a semi vegetarian and this is really nasty to me.

In the "olden days" a ripe old age was 40 or 50. Today the age is 75 or 80. I'd say there might be some good to the nutritional advances we've made.

Seeing people react this way to l-Cystine coming from hair is as funny as watching a vegan eat jello while the rail on about the injustice of eating meat.

Not in my family or anyone else I know... Short of industrial accidents or something, it is true that many people are being kept alive long after they should be gone but that would derail the thread, good topic none the less.

got some bad news for you all...
there was a day when most of your food was grown in horse poop
so any nutrition really can be said to have been synthisized by plants from that
that nutrition went on to grow the hair that they are making the OP from

its a viscious cycle

the chinese are resourse poor
this leads to them useing everything they can
things like the saliva of birds in birdsnest soupe and the OP for example
they say you shouldn't bag your lawn clippings because it will starve your lawn and you will have to re fertilize it.

so waste not want not

having said that....
I like bannok
it is made over an open wood fire where the wood came from dirt originally....

I am going to go have a few slices of human hair now, I'll be back in a bit.

My slices of human hair have sauce , onions, cheese, and bacon.

I really really am going to try to forget that my pizza has human hair in it!

And gelatin is made from crushed animal bones. At least it's not human though.

That is gross.

This is the reason why everybody needs to look at the ingredients in their food and make sure not to buy anything with ingredients that aren't NATURAL. Also best way to make food from scratch.

Someone here on the board stated that their grandma said that if she had a tsp of chicken poo she could grow cabbages... Well I grew mine this year in the same and they are ENORMOUS!!! It is far from time for them to be this HUGE, but yes, it was a great tip.

*A good mix of soil, compost, and the chicken straw I brought out of the coop after winter*

Another great organic fertilizer is manure tea. Acquire some cow manure from a farmer (they also offer it in bags at Lowes and Home Depot), some cheesecloth, and a large five to ten gallon glass jar (an aquarium can work but it makes dispensing the end result more difficult). Wrap the manure in the cheesecloth and submerge the "poo pack" in the water. Allow the mixture to stand in the sunlight for 4-5 days. The resulting "manure tea" is a powerhouse fertilizer for vegetables and flowering plants alike.

I would consider watering it down by a 1/4 at first just to make sure its not to potent for the plants.

Well I do everything I can to avoid cattle, I really am paranoid about mad cow, so other organic stuff works too but can be too strong and burn the plants. I have a huge pile of organic soil but I also need that for the backyard nursery which I mix with stuff like peat, pearlite, vermiculite, sand and compost. I wish I had a mountain of this mix as everything I grow in it does really well.

I am still learning so all suggestions are always welcome. I am an expert at growing fescue and weeds...

Any type of manure can work for manure tea (well any kind except human manure). I've found that different manure tends to have different levels of nitrogen and such thusly effecting growth rates differently. For my lawn I use chicken manure; it makes the grass very green and lush. It also makes my neighbors irate when I fertilize my lawn. I've not had much luck with chicken manure in the vegetable gardens (oddly enough except for pumpkins) but when it comes to flowerbeds and the lawn I love it.

Weeds are very annoying and look for any free space in which to root and starve the garden plants of vital nutrients. I have discovered that spreading dill seeds or clover seeds can rob the weeds of their space to germinate while providing simultaneous benefit to the garden. The dill helps drive away pests in addition to being a delightful ingredient in dishes (mmmm potato bean soup) and the clover (if you get red clover) can make a great tea to help cleanse the blood. Both plants are easily composted after the growing season. When my beds are dormant I plant red clover across the entire bed; then turn it into the soil a few weeks before growing season to add an extra boost of nutrients to the soil.

Oh and Mushroom Compost!!! Its the best!

At first I was like "oh no!" but then I realized that mass produced bread today is like 80% air, so its not that big of a deal. I get more hair into me by licking my beard.

They use cysteine in bread as it operates as a reducing agent. Essentially, it breaks apart the gluten that naturally occurs in the bread so as to soften it. You achieve the same thing mechanically by kneading it, however the reaction is reversible and will reverse upon proofing/baking. It is of course, not the only thing available, so cysteine is not always used. Have a read of this.

If you're suggesting that it's used to remove gluten strands in bread then you are probably wrong. Kneading dough creates gluten strands. Remove gluten from your dough and you end up with something that is not bread dough and would resemble the texture and crumbliness of a muffin when baked.

I don't know how such a misinformed opinion can be shared with such conviction, but I hope it was just your inability to articulate your sentences properly.
