Mussel Soup

With all the recalls lately due to people getting food poisoning, dying, and suffering kidney failure from eating Red Meat, Chicken, Cantelopes, Mangoes  Lettuce, etc, it makes one almost afraid to eat anything. The food today has become downright scary to eat, I do not recall 30 years ago so many outbreaks of people getting sick and dying from eating food. Now Consumer Reports has said that Brown Rice has to much Arsenic in it. Has Modern Consumerism contributed to this issue? Is it the loss of so many small family farms, or the take over by large commercial companies and there innovations with modern manufacturing and the additional chemicals, pesticides, etc.? Each side seems to have there own answers for the breakdowns. It appears, that we need to try to eat more local products, be vigilant with how we prepare and cook our food,  pay attention to where our products come from and eat foods with 5 ingredients or less.
