1. Do not eat beef, or beef soup, or anything cow based in Korea. The American government and economy has an absolute monopolizing power over S. Korea and so they force import of old american beef, which have no confirmed testing that it is free from BSE aka Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy aka mad cow disease. They've done a good job of covering it up, and for some reason, Lee Myung Park's one nation government spews out its usual propaganda about American beef being safe to the Korean public. There is also no guarantee that the so-called 'Hanwoo' (korean beef) is not American beef. Definitely do not trust that it is Hanwoo if it is frozen.
Ignorance is Bliss.
The effects of BSE in humans to not surface until several years later, so you won't get immediate symptoms. This virus is found in the bones and the flesh around bones of cows, so the portions under the highest risk are such delicious servings as ribs, and the famous korean 'Gom' soup and "Seullung Tang" i.e. beef tail soup, which is known towards have benefits to stamina, health, and general well-being. Also be wary of food which may use cheap frozen beef, such as pizza and any fast food joint who do not claim to use "Australian Beef." (McDonalds uses Australian beef, Lotteria uses 'Hanwoo'...however, check #2.)
2. Do not eat Korean cow products OR pig products. Cattle infected with FMD (foot and mouth disease) was found recently in various farms, which is suspected to be spread by another pig farm.
"I tried to stop him, but he just wouldn't listen..."
It seems that this is 2 seperate outbreaks in SKorea(Pigs & Cattle). SKorea will/has "culled" animals(slaughter) which began yesterday. So far 3,100 have been killed and approx 1,400 among the rest are scheduled to be culled today(the number of culled is actually higher).
FMD confirmed in SKorea(cattle)
Yes, in this nation, there is only the good ole' chick to depend your carnivorous urges on. Although I am not sure if this is also propaganda or not, Japan has stalled all imports, so I guess it's better to be on the safe side.
3. Oh, and just when we thought we could shift our faith to our favourite avian delicacy...
H5N1 strains were found in dead chickens in Japan...
Officials in Shimane Prefecture, western Japan, have begun destroying some 23,000 chickens at a poultry farm that's been hit by bird flu.
The highly virulent H5 strain of the avian flu virus was detected in 5 chickens that were found dead at the farm in Yasugi city on Monday.
On Tuesday, dozens of officials in protective gear arrived at the farm to destroy all its chickens.
In addition, movement of chickens and eggs has been restricted at 4 other poultry farms within 10 kilometers of the site.
Noone can be sure if the virus has been safely contained in Japan, or if the avian flu already spread. Thus, if you are the typical hypochondriac, perhaps it is safe for folksmen of your genre to be wary of KFC and fire chicken.
(wait, aren't we forgetting someone?)
