Everyone says one of the reasons they love Thailand is that it's 50 years behind the west ..... well .... what did our grandparents use to say ?

"We will all eat a peck of dirt before we die."

That was what our grandparents' generation used to say; a phrase which can be taken metaphorically to mean everyone will suffer some indignities and setbacks in their lifetime, but which is usually interpreted literally as meaning "Don't make a fuss about the bit of soil on your potatoes or the caterpillar on your lettuce - they're harmless." Recent studies have suggested that our modern obsessions with cleanliness and our determination not to eat a peck of dirt (or any dirt at all, come to that) could, in fact, be having a detrimental effect on our general health and immunity to disease. Exposure to bacteria and viral organisms is critical to the development of a mature immune system. By constantly cleaning and sterilising our environment, we don't give our defence mechanisms a chance to grow.

Yep, you'll probably get the sh*ts a few times whilst your stomach gets used to a bit of bacteria, but think on the bright side you will be tasting food as it was meant to be tasted without having all the goodness "cleaned" out of it, and after a while your stomach will be perfectly happy getting helpings of somtam and sticky rice from a communal bowl :badteeth:

Animals have a much stronger immune system than peoples. Thats why they can drink the water and eat a dug up bone. And some animals are smarter than some of these human "animals". Our cat Felix won't eat anything processed. Hmm? Should we? Ants & bugs won't eat anything with chemicals. Hmm? Lay out some processed sugar and watch them run from it. Yet, soi Dogs and human "animals"will eat anything.

Bresse Chicken are back

Could someone please enlighten me as to what it is about a Bresse Chicken that commands a price of over 40 euro's a kilo in French butchers shops?

To my (all be it Pie and Mash raised) pallet, I can't think of anything about a chicken that would make me want to pay that sort of money :-k
