"That arriving on people's doorsteps, and people are like what's going on. What is this? Orient's been talking a lot about this on wg and that the agriculture community is concerned. They say. Don't open them. Don't plant them. Definitely Don't plant them, report them and that they're worried about. You know these unsolicited shipments that they're going to be? Well, they potentially They need to be tested in case they pose some sort of threat to local, You know, crops and and even just, you know, whatever normal plant life and that kind of thing, So they're concerned and they say, Do not open them. 847 Orient on the farm show, Ask the public not to use them all in caps. That's right. Also there in Kentucky. As of yesterday. In many other states, I would put gloves on and kill them in straight bleach. There you go. That's one way to get rid of them. They also kind of want to know about it. And they want you to keep the packaging to and reported to the Agriculture Department agriculture if you get him cause Wisconsin's now getting it, we we were hearing about that weirdo. Yesterday, Johnny Putman called in and said that they were in Florida. Her friend got him and they figured out what to do there. They even made him surrender the tomato plant that they were near because she planted him in a pot somewhere in the house or somewhere outside, and they said, Well, whatever it's near. You got to get that out to we're no, we're no, We're not taking any chances. And so they brought it in and they're they're handling that they're trying to figure out is this Is there something really sinister here? Or is this sort of one of those scams where they're just trying to buy reviews by getting verified buyers and that kind of thing? So that's out there. What else is out there is this No more Columbus statues in Chicago as of today, because the last one in the city of Chicago was removed overnight. So last week back about exactly a week ago last Friday, they remove the one in Grant Park. They removed the one in Little Italy. City officials did. And now the 92nd in exchange one just came down. First last week when this all happened, I really I thought this was Mayor Lightfoot's makes field moment like, you know, she's in the middle of the night. Take down of this sort of thing, like, sort of when Daley bulldoze make field, but I don't think that that's exactly what this is This Cem is about safety, and they received word that People were heading out to defend the statue, admits protesters who were going to try to topple it. And they decided to just too dangerous to leave these out here right now and that there needs to be a public discussion. A public forum about whether or not they Should stay up or they should come down and what should happen, the mayor says, promises to lead that discussion. But the 3rd 1 in the last one went down last night. The alderman there had pledged to remove it. She wanted it to come down on DH. Let's talk to the Let's look at the new Italian Americans have been very outspoken about the need to keep these up. And that these belong is you know they should be in these communities. They want to see this the statues up and let's talk to Lissa dress. She's with the Joint Civic Committee on Italian Americans. Listen, thanks for calling in They can. You know you hit the nail right on the head. There is nothing more important than the safety of all Chicago and and Chicago police officers. And while our Italian American community is hurt, and we did not and do not, and will not want to stay down, permanently or come down We understand that this is the thing that we have to do right now. But we've been working with them. They're closely months ago. She has been a part of of compensate the statue. We understand why they had to come down, but she's also told us that this is temporary, and we are holding her to it. Yeah. And so I mean, I guess of what happens next is an important thing. I think my point all along has been that I didn't think a handful of protestors should decide that. It would come down that this should be part of a debate that involves the people in that war, the people in the city as well. And it seems as if the mayor is on board with suggesting that she wants that that sort of dialogue to happen, You know? So you we've had several people on the show on this in the past, and they're just saying no, no, no. These are just examples of, you know, genocide of native peoples, and that Chris Columbus is not someone they want to see in there. Communities. You've heard those voices before, And you're you've addressed him before. But if if you will just remind us what your response has been in the Italian American community. I should be and need to be healthy debate about numerous historical figures, but the number one thing is these are historical figures. And what compass means The Italian American community are the contributions and the hardness of coming over. The contributions of the Italian have donated to our American culture, and and he was a strong person of faith. But we are also and it is what it means to the Italian Americans. What we wanna do. We want to teach the history of Christopher Columbus is back to the camp and Mary been said that that the statue should be left up to teach history. We've even reached out to the American Indian Council to conjoined Lee write the history. Compass, inscribe it on the wall and erect a wall a Rego park with the other facts Iwas so that people can read the history of Congress from both sides. But unfortunately I never heard back from them. And we just want you. This is a teaching moment. We don't want to. He'd go away and we will not go away. So I know that the one in Little Italy in particular has been the source of AA. Lot of, you know, emotion. I saw there was a local judge. I think he was trying to defend it himself. He was very angry that protesters were trying to take it down. I've heard of immigrants in the Italian community who have raised money for some of these statues and The one that was just they just took down temporarily. Last night was has been there for 100 years over 100 years, and I want to ask you about those the one in particular in Little Italy. Listen, can you hang on just a second here and we'll get back to in just a moment. Listen dresses with the Italian American, the Civic Committee on for for Italian Americans, and she's going to be talking to us more about this If you have Thoughts about it as this discussion sort of is taking place as we speak in Chicago and will for the coming weeks. If you have thoughts about it. Let us know 312981 72 100. We've got your guide for things to do and places to go as we head into the last half of summer, Pat.

"Michael thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. So you've covered very exciting topics before. Wall Street is exciting. Sports is exciting. The Department of Agriculture is not generally considered exciting. How did you decide to to turn to this? So it wouldn't have been exciting before trump. I think trump electrified all the material. So what happened. Several things at once happened. I just finished a book about Danny. Common name is diversity to Israeli psychologist who Study the way people Miss Miss Value. Risk price risk and one of their insights. Was that if you take a catastrophic risks. I mean it's like a one in a million chance of happening and and make it a one in ten thousand still very remote increase the likelihood one hundred times people don't feel it and I had this sense. When trump was elected in the way he was approaching governing that he was he was doing that across a big portfolio of risks that. I thought that the one way to think of the federal government is a manager of giant portfolio of risks many of them catastrophic and that people weren't feeling it exactly. I was doing on this in about how to write about it when he made Rick Perry the Secretary of Energy of Course Rick. Perry had said that he thought the Department of you should be eliminated when he was on stage in a debate but he couldn't remember even the name of the place and once he collided with it he realised. Oh maybe it shouldn't be eliminated because the departmental has nuclear weapons in inside of it and I thought well maybe this is the this is the way maybe actually kind of want follow it follow ric currency what it means for. Rick Perry to be running this place and then somewhere in all this. I learned that the Obama Administration partly because they're required to by law partly because Obama was a responsible person had essentially Had BEEN AT WORK. For a year to create these briefings for the whoever was gonNA roll into the federal government and run it and there was a there have been thousand thousand people across across the government who had spent the better part of a year creating these briefing books thinking about how to present the government to someone who didn't know anything about it and these briefings were supposed to happen the day after the election. I mean they're gonNa roll and that's what happened. When Obama rolled in to replace Bush and the trump people hadn't shown up at all so then I had a hook but now I do too in the hook was I'm GonNa go get the briefings. Briefings and trump people never bothered to get and kind of learn about this portfolio of risk and try to get a sense of what we should be worried about why that was the start and then you ended up covering not just the Department of Energy but also the Department of Commerce and the Department of Agriculture. You know I had a selection problem that reminded me a bit of the selection problem. I had with the big short and the big short there was a pool of kind of fifteen Wall Street guys who had seen the crisis coming or thought they'd seen it coming and made a fortune betting on the collapse of either Wall Street or the housing market and I wandered around a long time on a casting. Search figure out which ones were the best to tell the story through. Who are the other contenders? There were a lot of them. I mean they were. They were hundreds of them but they were fifteen of them and and all were willing to let me write about him. It was just who could kind of teach the reader the most important things what was the best way to dramatize this. And in this case I had actually fifteen cabinet level positions fifteen departments to choose from and I had a narrow down. I couldn't do the federal government. I wasn't gonNA keep the reader for more than a couple of hundred pages. I knew right away it was going to be three or four and I thought I had some criteria I thought one. It's gotta be something that I suspect. Most readers have no idea what it does and I just. I would just market test this. I'd be at a dinner party and say they might tell me what the Department of Commerce does and nobody had any idea that half the budget went to weather collecting weather data. You know or in the department energy most people didn't like Rick. Perry as opposed to the Treasury Department of the State Department of people have some vague idea. What does it? I wanted to be out of the public eye because I thought among other things I think. The risks are greater when public not watching the trump administration and finally. I thought they started to be very important so the Department of Education. I mean it's nothing's not important in the federal government but some of it's more important than than others so i. I spent time in most of the departments. I mean are talked to people from most departments and eliminated things along the way and then figured these are the three I wanted to do. Having said that I mourn not having written about the State Department and more not having read about the Department of the Interior. I think you could drop a writer into any one of these places and he would come away with a really. There's a wonderful stories to tell I mean. The Department of Education Is One. That's been written about a lot because of that. The high profile of the appointee to a lesser extent repairing sort of when he came in there was a flurry of attention and then kind of died away. So what is Rick Perry doing at the Department of Energy and what the Department of Energy supposed to be doing? It's a really good question what he is doing what. I dipped out of this story. I mean the last time I interviewed someone at the department injuries. Maybe six months ago and what I'm told. Is he set himself up as a kind of cheerleader ceremonial head of with the. Who isn't all that interested in the place? So you seem tweet a lot about it but we never got the briefings presumably. I know more about it than he does. Because I sat down with people had them walk me through the whole department. Maybe by now. He's accumulated some information. But what does it do? It's a vast science project what it is and part of the science project is tending to testing assembling nuclear weapons. That that's a big part of the budget. Another big part of the budget is cleaning up nuclear. Waste their sites in this country. And you wouldn't believe it. It's sort of like green type. Post-apocalyptic PLACES PAN for Washington. The Department of Defense three billion dollars a year trying to clean up the remains of the plutonium factories that that generated the atom bombs for World War. Two you ask the people in the department energy to give you an honest estimate how long it's GonNa take to to clean the place up hundred years one hundred billion dollars. I mean that's not trivial. And and what is at stake is there is a giant plume underground of of nuclear waste. That's slowly drifting towards the Columbia River which is not that far away said up on the Columbia River because they need the water to cool the it was there for a reason but if it leaches into the Columbia River. It's a catastrophe the for the Pacific northwest and it's managed in a very short term way. Things happen there. That are very alarming but does that predate trump or is it always been managed in a short term way although trump was the trigger for my story and trump is by far the most negligent manager of the federal government. We've had my lifetime Fisher probably forever. I never thought of his story. Just about trump. I thought of it. A story about the narrative we have created has poisoned or at Lea- screwed up the relationship between the society and government. That that this whole notion that the government is filled with lazy stupid. Bureaucrats who were kind of dead weight on society is a really dumb story. It's not true story. Department energy actually illustrates this. There is within the Department of Energy and his science project a seventy billion dollar loan portfolio and a few hundred million dollar venture capital fund. That is responsible for the entire. Solar power industry is responsible for Tesla. The first that were given to Tesla it is. It's it's the only place where dollars will be allocated to long term innovation. Industry doesn't do this if you she track back. Where the the innovations that led to the current American economy came from almost always it started with a government some government investment the Internet. The iphone wouldn't wouldn't exist without govern investment. When I think about the government I think of it as this. This exquisitely important exquisitely complicated machine that. We've let rust for decades telling ourselves a story that we need to basically just kick it every now and then it keep it from being too lazy and this guys come along and got sledgehammer. Trump has come along and he's getting this is getting you. He's going to do really mortal damage to it all right. So here's a short term thinking way of looking at this if you have things like nuclear cleanup. That are one hundred year. One hundred billion dollar projects is this potentially four year maybe eight year term of neglect. Kind of benign neglect. Because it's just GonNa it's all moving so slowly anyway or is he actively doing something in these departments. That is making it far worse. We have to worry. I think we have to worry a lot in. That's not me saying there's there are people who were kind of professional watchers of the federal government who are independent reps of the situation and then they're terrified for a few reasons. One is just the people who were in the federal government in the first year. The trump administration twenty percent of the top six thousand managers in the government civil service senior executive types left Biz. A hollowing out of the talent. And there's real talent there. These are not trivial. People people who were there in a lot of people federal government could be being paid a lot more money in the private sector and they've been drawn to some mission whether it's school nutrition or tending the nuclear arsenal or the weather service. They're there because they love the mission in because they know how important job is and we've mistreated those people for a long time. But now the level of mistreatment got very high and the dispersion of those people is a problem but then there are lots of things that are not so long term. I mean the trump budgets zeroed out both the loan program and the investments in the Department Energy Department of Agriculture Department. Agriculture has a three billion dollar research. Budget typically always overseen by a scientist and agricultural scientist. And if you talk to the woman who previously occupied the place Kathy Woteki a re a one a distinguished agricultural scientists who've been in government. Thirty years really knows what she's doing. She's all of his budget right. Now is one way or another being directed to research tied to climate. Change that we're to feed ourselves we're GONNA have to think differently. Be where how and where we grey sheep and cows and grow wheat and the climate change and have a big effect on the food supply trump appointed to this job right wing talk show radio host from Iowa who happened to support who knew who has no science background whatsoever named Sam Clovis now he has recently been removed from consideration. And there's nobody on his anybody in the job right now but the neglect of investment right now in the government will have consequences down the road. The bright spot is make it so bad and this is the point of the book. It make it so bad that people may wake up and we'll have a different narrative about our government.

"Expert at the USDA who willingly takes our teasing Adam give us some guidance yes during summer we've got a couple considerations that we need to take into account and mainly has to do with temperature specially temperature outside but the temperature ever meet so my two big items for everyone out there are time and temperature so whenever you're cooking any meat and poultry wanna make sure you get to it the internal temperature so a lot of people will use color work time as an indicator of done this but those are only really guide the only definitive measure of done it safety is the use an internal temperature so with her mom so this is the big one so your whole cuts of red meat your steak roast and shop there if in a hundred forty five degrees the three minute rest all the ground meat hamburgers those or items are eight hundred sixty degrees and then all poultry weathered grounder hole cut it at a hundred fifty five degrees and then on the time side of that especially during the summer when it's above ninety degrees here goes very rapid we always want to get all our leftover food in the refrigerator or a cooler were out at a cook out within two hours but really during the summer it's within one hour so anytime it above ninety degrees out you wanna get that food in the chorus and one hour saluted the main main takeaway what does the temperatures that you referenced before achieve what for us yes so those temperatures once you reach those temperatures they instantaneously will destroy any of any potential bacteria that can cause illness in there so if you get that that they've temperature you've destroyed any bacteria so it'll help prevent a lot of illnesses in and actually it some people might think that they don't get sick or don't get good Warren Ellis or they've been doing it correctly for all this time they never got sick but it's actually very common issue within the United States and a hundred twenty eight thousand people are actually hospitalized each year from food borne illness so it is something that does occur and it's something that we can prevent without I'm gearing food safety experts at the US department agriculture so when you go to a cook outs.

Yeah. We, we spent lots of time disparaging the government, but we basically assume their basic professional. Right. And now we know nobody's there, you know, that Rick Perry is running the department Rick Perry. I mean, this is again, if you had to pick the person in America who is demonstrably nut qualified to run the department energy. It's the guy who set on stage in a presidential debate.

You are one of twenty three candidates. It's hard to distinguish. All the candidates running might be hard for the voters to. I mean, one of the reasons why everyone, but Biden seems to be pulling pretty low is because mainly because of name recognition, I suppose, but so why not run for Senate, the incumbent Republican Cory Gardner is vulnerable. I think he's pulling underwater when it comes to any democrat, you could perhaps win that seat where you might have a better chance of winning that seat than winning the presidency. Why not do that? Well, I don't look at myself in terms of, of what where can I win? I've spent my whole life in executive positions, as, as a CEO as a mayor and governor bringing teams of talented people together from, from nonprofits from, from business from government from academia and creating teams to achieve the big progressive goals that people didn't think could be done. To achieve more in the Senate. Oh, I don't think so. I mean if you look at the skill sets of what I'm good at. That's very different than what happens in the Senate.

"Diamonds. All right back here back half of the week. It's all good on seven hundred wwl w so Ohio moving foreign obviously on medical marijuana. We know this, but there's another facet that's being jeopardised. And this is what's concerning about it. Because it may not be for you may not work for you. Whether it's THC or CBD, and we'll get into what that isn't just a second. But you know, I think personally, and this is my libertarian streak is your listen, if you find something that agrees with you that works with you works for you. Should it really be illegal? And and for those that don't know CBD is a chemical compound found not only the female, but of the marijuana plant, but more commonly extracted from hemp which the hemp variety of the cannabis plant has very little THC and a little bit trace amounts, but just a little bit. But because of our draconian laws in this country, they treat it like it's a heroin cocaine sentinel and stuff like that, which is absolutely ridiculous. And the reason I bring this up is because in Ohio now, those that sell it are in jeopardy of not only losing their their income stream but going to prison because of the way the law's work in the state joining me in studio this morning, seven hundred wwl WBZ are beach beaches with hesitations, and this whole CBD thing really came on like gangbusters recently, didn't it. I mean last probably to probably the last two years. It really is blown up. Products for almost ten years before they were being formed in the United States where they were being imported legally imported through customs CBD from industrial hemp plants, and I want to clarify. This is not a legal issue in Ohio right now, the state of Ohio has not made CBD illegal. That's why we can continue to carry our one hundred percent legal industrial hemp CBD. Right. What's going on is if you have a state license through any state agency? I don't care if it's the department agriculture board of health medical cosmetology alcohol cigarette that puts you under the authority of the state for any of their policies. The policy of the board of the pharmacies policy is anything made from cannabis marijuana. Right. Therefore under our thority when it comes to policy. So they're going into these retail locations that have a license aboard a health license. We stop selling CBD Toheah spa in mount Adams because my partner has both a medical and cosmetology license. We were aware that the state had a thorny over that business. So we stop selling. And so. Bureaucracies the issue. Correct. The agencies that are fighting with other agencies, and then the feds he makes the DA and all this stuff in there. And that's why it's his land of confusion right now. But the bottom, but the bottom line is. And if you think about this why there's a big issue is not the hallucinogenic values work. Right. But, but it binds the same receptors, basically in a lot of people, and I know some celebrities have been tweeting about this and others have noticed a decrease in. Well, if you have anxiety, for example, at works for some people at that others, it's pain. There was the famous story about this. And there's a CD strain called Charlotte's web back probably about almost ten years ago. This this girl this lady out of Colorado. Her five-year-old daughter, Charlotte is in hospice, she's going to die. She has a condition a very rare but life threatening condition that causes hundreds of violent seizures a day Drzewiecki is what it's called. And she read a study from Greece or something like that trying to find relief for her daughter to to improve her quality of life. He's going to die at a young age. But unfortunately, she suffering every day of her life, and the FDA and the government says, you can't have it. You can't have it. You can't have it. She was able to basically isolate CBD give it to her daughter and found out that the study that she read from another country was accurate that it stop the seizures for her. And she's lived pain-free. She's not twelve years old. She was five months. Five years old at the time. She's not twelve she's still alive. She's not gonna make it much longer. Unfortunately this condition, but she's not suffering and more quality of life is improved. And if that's one exams say Sloan, that's a rare example, I would say this if or your child or a loved one, you do anything to stop their pain and suffering especially baby like this. And if it's working for one it's probably going to work for many other people as well. And I love the fact that the government is cracking down and making it harder for people like that to get relief in in since that story came out. I think it was Dr Sanjay Gupta CNN's piece on. And now a lot of people are using CBD people might Cunningham is a straightest white. This guy I've ever met my life. And this dude swears by CBD far rightous, I use it occasionally as needed for shoulder. Pain shoulder arthritis that works for me. It's less toxic to me than Advil and things although use that from time to time as well. And you know, I hate the fact that the government is telling me, there's no no scientific proof. There's no credible information. But at the same time beach, isn't it the same guy the same FDA in the like date, they allow products he supplements on the market to be sold by huckster that literally are nothing. Give me a placebo fact that tell you it's gonna make you better in the bedroom. It's gonna make you stronger more viable in your seventies. And all these promises of all these all these products that they allowed to sell and said, well, it's not a drug. We can't. But but at the same time, they tell you can't have CBD. Well, here's the great confi. Isn't that the worst part about this is the the the I guess the hypochondria on the part of the FDA the lack of clarity? And Furthermore, quite honestly, it's the hypocrisy of it. You'll allow some of these supplements that are nothing but snake oil, but you. But you won't do anything to allow people to get relief from something that's proven to work not for everybody. Right. It isn't that? But we have hundreds of customers I have emails from parents of autistic children that have changed their lives. I mean, we have testimonials from hundreds and hundreds if not thousands of people about what this does. And just like you said growing CBD from extracted from industrial hemp is no different than growing citrus for vitamin c it's an over the counter supplement that some people find helps them with certain things. And there's no saying we shouldn't use CBD is no different than saying. I shouldn't use a vitamin C or vitamin b twelve supplement over the counter. Well, sell your Saint John's wart, nobody knows what the hell it is. But it does something. And and that's fine. It's exactly like this. We will let you we won't let you touch. That's right. And it really that's whereas supplement it is in our hands. There really doesn't actually have much jurisdiction over supplements. And but the pharmacy does let the pharmacy board has subject over all their products. And that's the irony of what they're doing is the pharmacy board in the state of Ohio is now going in their point all this stuff off the consumer shells. And they're protecting the licenses of their constituents the growers or everything in Ohio has to be in Ohio. So let's be grown in Ohio Pakistan, Ohio necessarily milestone Ohio to dispensary. Not one of those growers is going to grow a point three percent or less THC high CBD plant because it's already being done. Well, no because they can't because they're not gonna find the prophet in that, right? Is a psychoactive ingredient when you have typical Cheech and Chong stone or that's the THC. Okay. That's what gives you that you guys in high pain relief. THC both CD and THC. Absolutely. There are times where I'm know working all day. Especially if I'm doing stuff over my head with a hammer drill. I'm feeling it at night. Honestly a couple hits of that. And it takes the pain way. Get eight nine hours sleep, and I feel total relief in the morning. I like no pain PTSD for soldiers anxiety. It's it's been proven before and that, but that's a THE component. And this is CBD attached to the same receptors. Right. But it's like the Indo cannabinoid our system, our brain has receptors that are made for these. Genetically genetic pieces of cannabis, and so that's why it works. And that's why again, the full spectrum is you're talking about you get more out of a full spectrum cannabis plant for medicine, if it has the THC and the CD and all the other things in the CBD again as as a supplement or as medicine if you bite at the dispensary, then called a medicine, right? It will not be available at dispensary. Not one of the dispensaries by the time. They all open fifty or so will not have the product that we sell on their self ever speech. They're not. So again, it's a beach from hesitations on the show this morning with the pharmacy board of Ohio cracking down on people sung CBD, and I get they're protecting their licensees follow the money. Right. But there's not one licensee. He that's going. We're not threatened by the industries in different thing. That's correct. And in fact, I would implore I think this is where the lawsuits are going to come in is because we can go to the growers and find one. Or that has has a plan point three percent less THC plan. You show me the first grower in the state of Ohio that's going to do that. And I would say that the board of pharmacy may have an argument as to what they are saying, it doesn't change that anything less than point. Three percent is federally legal industrial hemp byproduct. Right. They see seed at one of these businesses. They embargoed hempseed at one of these businesses because the border pharmacies policy is everything for cannabis marijuana everything I have on all my clothing if I walked in and the border pharmacy could arrest me, they would arrest me. Marijuana for me where? Right under their policy. Yeah. Fortunately, they have no authority to arrest any because that's a different bureaucracy. That is. Lies the problem when I'm a I'm a limited government kind of guy and you hear this. Well, we need more government knowing up because of confusion like this. You're just making the quality of life for people more miserable. Now, that's right beach, one of the other questions to with this thing, we get a lot of times there's a couple of big questions. One of them, of course, is disease. Yup. And drug tests. And that's kind of a tricky question. It is a tricky question. My understanding is as you would have to take at least three thousand three thousand to five thousand milligrams CBD product full spectrum CBD from one dose almost every day. Like the whole amount like a whole bottle every day to to show up and no one can afford that because a bottle of CBD like the six hundred in it's different strengthened potencies, obviously. But it's it's like eighty bucks. It is it is expensive. Today. We're starting to see the growth in the United States. Come. We're really. Luckily, we're growing here because those prices would continue to go up if we still had an important guarantee it because they were when I started selling CD that same six hundred milligrams was like a thousand dollars in a tube straight CBD in a in a in a syringe was almost a thousand dollars retail. And so that was imported came across through customs Sony industrial hemp one hundred percent legal then not marijuana product know if I've ever sold a marijuana product in my twenty three years of being in business. They would have come in. And they would have sent me. But yeah, it CBD in. Here's the thing..

"Days and tips for keeping your New Year's resolutions. We'll have that story in about twenty minutes. Recalls throughout last year may have some American consumers nervous to put anything in their mouths these days, but the US foods this system is still among the safest in the world, especially considering the sophistication of things like the country supply chains the sheer number of people eating in this country, and the reporting tools that are in place as Lottie Meyer at USA today reports there is no poop, apocalypse sloppy in all we do a pretty good job. That's true. You have to think about it. We have a pretty sophisticated food supply chain we have reporting tools in place that are really really top of the line. And also if you just did the math the number of people eating in this country is so extraordinarily that figure out how many affected foods. There are really is a tiny tiny percentage. So would you say what you like nine hundred sixty pounds of food per year. The average American. Put that in perspective with illnesses. I guess sure. Sure. According to the US department agriculture is the most recent data the average American eats close to nine hundred sixty pounds a year. You have to them there. Three hundred million plus Americans how many recalls are there. Well, I can tell you for example that on Tuesday the FDA issued five recall four of which were food related. So it really depends. But again, even for food recalls in one day, again, how many food items are produced in this country are imported in this country, and how many are actually affected by food recalls. What do you mean by images perception? Sure. Well, as you mentioned yourself, sometimes we hear headline after headline after headline we start to panic. And we think it might be as I said in my article poop, apocalypse, it's really not the case in today's day and age companies are very quick to recall there because they're afraid of what happens down the line if they don't they don't want to deal with bad PR related to people getting sick or even possibly dying. So they rather do it. More prophylactically speaking with slotting Meyer money reporter at USA today about her piece entitled feel like there's a food recall every day. Could our food safety system. Be better. Yes. Some of the experts talked about that there certainly is room for improvement. But the issue, of course, is that with that comes a higher cost of food. He estimated that if we did sort of everything humanly possible, your grocery Bill might be as much as three times as high as it is now used to think about all the expenses companies we need to put in in terms of better trained, better paid work forces things like radiation quit, man. State of the art factories. Are we willing really willing to foot the Bill when it comes to standing in the checkout line chances are no your point about reporting may not be your friend explained that one? That's right. We have a system here in the US whether it's recalled them by the FDA or recalls done by the USDA that really is top notch. We have to compare that to other countries think about perhaps those in Latin America Africa parts of Asia. They don't collect this data as quickly as we do when they do collected. It's too late. And an example that most people will remember, of course, was back in two thousand eight with the tainted milk scandal in China. They really didn't take action there until six babies had died at three hundred thousand people had gotten sick. Imagine. What would happen in this country? It just it does not work like that. Another thing is in other parts of the world people just kind of get used to it one of the experts. I spoke to a professor at university of Georgia. He had grown up in Mexico during the nineteen sixties and nineteen seventies. And he said, and I quote, it was getting a cold you get one once a year. That's really how they viewed foodborne Ellis's. They're just became a fact of life in this country. That's really not the case. We would not stand for it. What are the typical problems when there are food recalls? Well, very often. There are pathogens or the suspicion of pathogens, and those are things like salmonella like wisteria another issue might be undeclared allergens, particularly with things like dairy and tree nut. Some people have very very strong allergic reactions to that they need to be made aware of that. But you have to keep in mind food comes from mother nature. Right. Whether it's dropped produce.
