    Isn't that very “healthy” decision?

    After enjoying the tremendous sales of the Rotten Meat for generations; only now they can sell [OFFICIALLY], meat which is free from all bureaucracy!

    That'd support+encourage them to mix all kinds of putrid waste from all kinds of animals - including the sick &/or dead ones - OFFICIALLY - without any restrictions!

    No wonder the meat [supposed to be fresh & processed] tastes S0000 delicious to the meat-addicted Brazilians!
