Food and Nutrition in the News

Edible News

After watching several documentaries about our food supply and learning just how deficient in nutrients the food we consume has become over the past 30-years, our family has decided to make some serious changes. We are buying organic, eating in season and buying locally. Our meat is grassfed, our bread in homebaked and I feel good about what my family is eating.

If you aren't aware of the danger genentically modified corn and soy products present to your families diet, continue reading. Find out the latest news and commentary on GMO food sources, eating and buying organic foods, nutritional news, food related health issues and much more.

After living in Arizona for many years, my family and I love good Mexican food, including the staple: tortillas.

I love to be in the kitchen - creating and working - and you'll usually find me there, singing, rocking a baby to sleep while mixing, reading oral copy work for my children... but when making tortillas, I'm usually in a less-than-stellar mood. Downright crabby! Recently, my husband steered clear of the kitchen on a tortilla-making day. A few minutes later, however, he reappeared, lurking around like he had something to say. "Why don't you just make tortillas like you make crepes? Wouldn't that be easier?"

It's too late to stop the rise of genetically modified crops such as the Roundup Ready ones made famous by agricultural giant Monsanto.

Monsanto announced this past week the $930 million acquisition of Climate Corp., a pioneer among a new breed of data analytics firms focused on agricultural issues like crop insurance and agricultural risk management, which was founded by two former Google engineers. "The Climate Corporation is focused on unlocking new value for the farm through data science," Monsanto chief Hugh Grant said in a statement. "Everyone benefits when farmers are able to produce more with fewer resources."

A recent collection of malware emails borrows heavily from authentic mailings sent out by Groupon and LinkedIn.

The outbreak is different from the blended attacks that have featured regularly in the last few months since it relies on attached malware as opposed to a link to drive-by malware. Using email templates modeled on Groupon and LinkedIn increases the chances that recipients will consider the attachment genuine and worth opening. The example below shows a Groupon "deal" found by a friend. Recipients are invited to open the attachment to view the gift details and also to forward it on to friends. All the links within the "offer" point to genuine Groupon sites.

A common perception is that whole organic food is so expensive that it is out-of-budget for the average family or even for the average single consumer.

It is also commonly perceived that the average grocery purchase of processed foods at a neighborhood supermarket, using the store discounts, makes the processed food diet within the budget of most families.

Last fall, Los Angeles took a hard line on school nutrition. In an attempt to mold better eating habits in kids, the Los Angeles Unified School District eliminated flavored milk, chicken nuggets and other longtime childhood favorites.

But instead of making kids healthier, the changes sent students fleeing from school cafeterias. There have been reports of a thriving trade in black-market junk food, of pizzas delivered to side doors and of family-size bags of chips being brought from home. Garbage cans are filling up with the more nutritious food, even if kids aren't.

Western Journalism has covered the ongoing push among leftist California bureaucrats to include health warning labels on sugary drinks sold in the state.

After failing to attract legislative support for a soda tax last year, state Sen. Bill Monning backed a bill that would spell out what many would conclude are the obvious results of overindulging in such beverages. That proposal moved forward last week when the California Senate Appropriations Committee voted in favor of the warning label implementation.

Russia is introducing a full 12 months embargo on the import of beef, pork, fruits and vegetables, poultry, fish, cheese, milk and dairy products from the European Union, the United States, Australia, Canada and the Kingdom of Norway.

Russia is also introducing an airspace ban against European and US airlines that fly over our airspace to Eastern Asia, namely, the Asia-Pacific Region and is considering changing the so-called Russian airspace entry and exit points for European scheduled and charter flights. Furthermore, Russia is ready to revise the rules of using the trans-Siberian routes, and will also discontinue talks with the US air authorities on the use of the trans-Siberian routes. Finally, starting this winter, we may revoke the additional rights issued by the Russian air authorities beyond the previous agreements. This is such an interesting and major development that it requires a much more subtle analysis than just the crude calculation of how much this might cost the EU or US. I will attempt no such calculation, but instead I would point out the following elements...

Nanotechnology is measured in billionths of a meter, encompassing all aspects of life from food to medicine, clothing, to space. Imagine hundreds of microcomputers on the width of a strand of hair programmed for specific tasks....in your body. Sound good?

Engineering at a molecular level may be a future corporations' dream come true, however, nano-particles inside your body have few long-term studies especially when linked to health issues. Despite this new huge income-generating field there is a growing body of toxicological information suggesting that nanotechnology when consumed can cause brain damage (as shown in largemouth bass), and therefore should undergo a full safety assessment. It is possible for nano-particles to slip through the skin, suggestive of a potential unnatural interaction with the immune system, or when micro particles enter the blood-stream. Some sunscreens on the shelf today, for instance, have nano-particles that might be able to penetrate the skin, move between organs, with unknown health effects. Nano-particles in cosmetics have few regulations done by FDA. Regulators are proposing that food companies that want to use tiny engineered particles in their packaging may have to provide extra testing data to show the products are safe.
