    buy filipino policy? I don't think so. Do you want to feed all that red stained longanisa, corned beef, and red hotdog filled with nitrates to your love ones? Unti unti mong nilalason ang pamilya mo for the sake of "buy pinoy policy". When I buy stuff, I buy what's best and safest for me and my family, regardless of who makes it.

    There's blind loyalty and there's common sense.

    here's a primer on nitrites... taken from themeatman.com

    Nitrite has been used as a food preservative and anti-botulinal agent for decades. It has also been a subject of controversy since the 1970s, when some of its reaction-products (i.e., nitrosamines) were associated with cancer in laboratory animals. However, following a 1981 review of all scientific data on nitrite, the National Academy of Sciences/ National Research Council indicated that 1) nitrite does not directly act as a carcinogen in animals 2) nitrate, converted to nitrite in the human body, is neither carcinogenic nor mutagenic and 3) nitrite-preserved or nitrate-containing foods account for only a very small proportion of the human body's total exposure to nitrosamines. Today, it is clear that the benefits of nitrite in cured foods far outweigh any potential risks.

    =====

    The Institute of Food Technologists has reviewed the scientific issues concerning nitrite and concluded that:

    Nitrite is critical to the safety of cured foods. It prevents the outgrowth of C botulinum spores;

    Nitrite is responsible for the characteristic flavor and pink color of cured meats;

    Foods containing added nitrite or naturally-occurring nitrate do not cause human cancers;

    Nitrite levels in U.S. cured foods are currently as low as possible and strictly regulated.

    proud akong pinoy ako... pero hindi ko pipilitin ang sarili na bumili ng isang bagay na gawa ng pinoy lalo na kung alam kong hindi ito worth it sa pera ko...

    hindi ako bumibili ng isang bagay dahil sa kung saan ito gawa, kung hindi sa quality nito...

    eh di kung buy pinoy lang, eh di dapat lahat tayo mag-jeep at walang bibili ng japanese/american/korean/european car...

    You're right Van. I mean who are we kidding here? We all say "buy pinoy" to get pogi points pero does anyone here really go out of their way just to pick pinoy products over anything else? I've been hanging around here for many months now and I've gotten to know a lot of you. We all talk about foreign cars, foreign parts, foreign watches, foreign movies, foreign music, foreign actors, foreign restaurants, foreign shoes, even kung nag-accessorize kayo puro foreign din naman. Mga TV, DVD, at stereo nyo ba sa bahay Promac brand ba? What about toothpaste brand? Ready to give up all Nestle products?

    Kung gusto mo pinoy products, halika dito sa amin, dami kong nakatambak na sirang pinoy products. Meron akong 2 Standard airpot, sira wala pang 5 months. Meron kaming 5 electric fan sira din. Clothes Dryer ko hindi tumagal ng 1 year. Weight bench galing quiapo sira na wala pang 1 month.

    from the outside (the US) looking in, i think Filipinos are well respected. meron tayong mga masasamang ugali, at ibang katawa-tawang ugali, but on the whole we are respected for being hard working, uncomplaining, willing to do the work that other (spoiled and lazy) people won't.

    bihira ang pinoy na bum or pinoy on welfare. we help each other and take care of our families. culturally, we value doing well in school and/or work, and take pride in what we do (even though medyo mayabang tayo when we succeed).

    what's not to respect about all that? sure, our politicians are mostly idiots, the government does some stupid things, and the country is embarrassingly poor. but still i believe there is plenty to be proud of.

    forget that crap about renowned inventors, boxers, scientists, billiards players etc etc. the real pride of the philippines comes from the hardworking OFW's, business owners, and employees that get no press but are successful in every sense of the word (do you think all the global call centers are in Manila only because everyone speaks english? it's far more than that!)

    ok, off my soapbox now

    I'm proud of the Philippines, but not of the Pinoys.

    ako oo proud ako. kahit maraming negative akong na expirience.

    marami pa ring ugali ang pinoy na hindi kanais-nais. pangmamata, pasiklaban, inggitero etc.
    at yoong hindi dapat mawala ay naglalaho na.
    paggalang sa kapwa, di nyo rin masisisi kung hindi ka nila ginagalang.

    tulad noong bumisita ako sa pinas. may nakatabi akong babae sa eroplano galing HK nagtratrabaho lang daw sya doon. mabait at masayang kausap. noong pumila na kami sa custom ang taray noong taong nasa counter. pinapagalitan marami raw mali sa papeles, halos mangiyak-iyak sya. nakakaawa, pero pagdating sa akin nakatawang maigi. nakakakulo ng dugo. sabi ng pinsan ko dahil iba raw ang passport ko kaya ganon sila.
