    Magnetic Meat 10.25.21

Tribe….This is weird.  My daughter cautioned us last night that a friend of a friend bought a bag of frozen chicken breasts and found out later that they were magnetic.

Fast forward to about 45 minutes ago….my wife brought home some Italian sausages from the local grocery chain here in the Puget Sound – (which is owned by one of the mega giant grocers) to make a sausage stew.  I checked them with a magnet….they were magnetic.  I showed her and she did not want to acknowledge it….I then ripped off the packaging plastic and the bare sausages were still magnetic.

I promptly grabbed the receipt and the 3 packs and headed back to the store.  I asked to see the manager and showed her what I had found.  She said without hesitation that she would return my money.  One of the other employees overheard this and wanted to see for himself, the manager grabbed her own magnet and said that she could feel the pull herself.  The guy did it too and agreed that they were indeed magnetic.  (I sell technical manufactured products and understand friction, etc…..these attracted both in a horizontal plain as well as vertical)

Since we were out of a protein for the stew, I went back to the meats to see what else we could use.  Their ground chicken did not appear tainted (not magnetic) so I bought that, but I did check their house brand of Italian sausage which was not the same brand that I had just returned.  They were magnetic too.  I showed another manager this too at the meat counter…..His response was why would they want to kill all the sheep doing the work for them.  My reply was that maybe they think there are too many sheep.

PLEASE WATCH YOUR FOOD SOURCES WITH CAUTION (Chis can I come over for some of that fresh clean pork that you just processed)

This may come off as cynical but did you take a video?

Okay I did some thinking. Meat has iron right? Probably not enough to be magnetic but it is there. If you wanted to boost your profits you could inject iron into the beef, right?

Any amount of iron that would have a notable effect on weight – would be toxic.

They already pump salt water to increase weight.  There should not be enough iron to have an effect on a magnet.  Just think of the ramifications of this in an MRI scan.,   Not just if you were magnetic, but ate something the night before a scan – ripped through your gut during a scan.. Oh how fun this could be.

No video just a still….my wife was irate that I wrecked her plans for a new recipe! 

Hmmm. How much iron is toxic and how much iron to be attractive to a household magnet.

What other metals could be added that are magnetic.

    iron filings are added to breakfast cereal

Iron filings are added to breakfast cereal to “enrich” the mineral content, even though the iron in metal filings cannot be absorbed by our digestive system.  Watch this video to see a cereal flake be attracted to the magnet, then the videographer extracts iron filings from a mush made of cereal and water.

The sausage might contain breakfast cereal added to the sausage to reduce the cost.  Then the sausage would contain the filings and be weakly magnetic.

Make America Magnetic Again!

Someone with the means should start checking and analyzing composition. Other foods they buy, and also drinking water. Someone clearly isn’t doing their job right.

Particle Size is EVERYTHING in a situation like this.

Small particles, like you might create if you held an iron rod and a file above a chicken stew, may create a gritty texture, but they will mostly result in a slightly magnetic #2 excretion the next morning.

Tiny particles, like you would create if you put some steel wool in a rock tumbler with the appropriate media, are more easily absorbed (by the digestive tract) and I would be very worried.

 

The importance of particle size is more easily demonstrated with an aluminum can.

Try to light it on fire, and nothing happens.

Cut it up into scissors, put it in the rock tumbler, let it run for a few days, and be very careful.

The aluminum powder, once it becomes fine enough, becomes pyrophoric.

You don’t need to light it on fire – it lights itself on fire.

The aluminum powder uses up all the oxygen in the tumbler, until you take the sealed top off.

Once it is exposed to oxygen, it instantly ignites, and starts burning (usually and hopefully) a tiny bit at a time.

The problem occurs if the pile of powder is disturbed, and a larger amount of powder burns. If that feedback loop starts, all the powder in the pile can ignite, in the same instant.

And it was just an aluminum can, which is obviously not flammable.

 

Getting back to the subject of food with iron particles – if the particles are small enough, you could receive an enormous dose of iron, in one single meal.

    Constipated? Put a large magnet in your toilet.

The new “magnet” challenge….See if things come out better.
