So sorry but I do get carried away sometimes and I apologized when I did. Also, posting in the wrong thread which you had kindly moved for me. I happen to know I am correct as it was part of my job prior to retiring to treat patients who have respiratory insufficiency from whatever etiology, and I do have a niece who is director of FSIS, working closely with CDC.
. Aware of potential fatalities although rare ( even botox injection from small amount of botulism can be fatal if the meds travel to other part of the body which can be fatal ) , I felt, I should point that out. I am very careful never to buy garlic that comes from China as I heard they use nightsoil for fertilizing their garlic as well as spray their garlic with chemical ( to make them look white) and toxin. I only buy Christopher Ranch Garlic from Costco since I use a ton of garlic in my cooking… Perhaps, you can start a new forum to make people aware of the danger of these Chinese Garlic as they supply 75% of garlic in the US.
At 76 ( next few weeks), cataract , arthritis with ulnar dystrophy ( failed ulna nerve transposition), I am at a disadvantage with spelling mistakes etc. esp when my 2 poms are at my side constantly, who think they are computer whiz. However, I do enjoy reading all the forums and post if I do not forget to take pictures. I have learned so much from your members, and am very grateful to you all.
However, I am not used to people being nasty in my profession as we respect each other, esp. at a stage when I am quite vulnerable. I will give joining in discussion a break but am still reading all member’s notes.
If any of you ever are in my area, feel free to visit. I pride myself with a fairly well equipped kitchen for anyone who likes to cook ( On the shore of the the Pax River) . We will always have seafood from our dock.
