Cancer Rates & Food Justice in Prisons

During my tenure as a prisoner I have witnessed some of the worst treatment of prisoners by way of their cuisine. On the box of the processed meat that we are fed is written the phrase "For Institutional Use Only." Recently studies have shown that eating too much of this meat causes cancer. There are numerous people that I personally know in the population that developed colon cancer and the doctor said that it was from the processed meat that is "For Institutional Use Only." The government won't give this meat to anyone in the public, not even the homeless. Prisoners are truly at the bottom rung of society, and the food is evidence of such. - Hassan Shabazz #ForIstitutionalUseOnly
