A Chicken Coma? KFC ordered to pay $8.3 Million for causing brain damage to a customer

At first I thought it was a hoax, but it is not. According to a BBC report, "Fast-food giant KFC has been ordered to pay $8.3M to the family of an Australian girl left severely brain damaged after being poisoned by a chicken meal. Monika Samaan fell ill with salmonella poisoning after eating a "Twister" wrap at a KFC restaurant near Sydney in 2005. The poisoning left her wheelchair-bound and unable to speak. KFC said it was "deeply disappointed" by the decision and would appeal." [Read the full report]


So you mean to tell me people will still eat at these places after reading that? Of course! (smile) I remember years ago hearing the saying "Fast food equals slow death." Unfortunately, most Black communities in America can be declared "food deserts" because there are no locations within a 20 mile radius that provide fresh fruits and vegetables. Who will teach the people about urban gardening? Who will start a fruit and vegetable co-op in the poor neighborhoods to offer them alternatives to these fast food chains? Those who know must do it!


Also, I think it is past time for everyone to get a copy of "How To Eat To Live" by the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad. I received my first copy as a freshman in high school in 1993 and I personally bear witness that nobody's so-called diet comes close to the jewels he is dropping in that book. Some may say "I'm not a Muslim", but diseases and life threatening ailments do not care about your religious preference when they attack your immune system. Why not give his advice a try for 30 days?


In a recent edition of The Final Call newspaper there's an article titled "Murder By Tastebuds" by Shaheerah Farrakhan. She writes "It is a very absurd thing that as we look around our country and around the world, there has been a spike in some of the most horrific health conditions: Cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, and heart disease are just a few. No matter where you go, someone closer than six degrees of separation is experiencing one or more of these diseases. During his Saviours’ Day 2012 lecture, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan blatantly talked about plots to depopulate the world and how the powers that be are carrying out that plot by killing us through our taste buds. They are knowingly poisoning us and hiding the proof in hard to pronounce words that describe food additives and fillers that turn what should be nutritious foods into drugs for our taste buds."
