There are now more Americans in jail -- 6 million -- than there were in Stalin's Gulag, reports Fareed Zakaria, in a column called "Incarceration Nation."

And it's not just a relative population thing. The U.S. has 760 prisoners per 100,000 citizens. How does that compare to other countries?

In an effort to boost sales going into the grilling season and make shopping at the meat counter a bit easier, the pork and beef industries are retooling more than 350 names of meat cuts to give them more sizzle and consumer appeal.

In the beef aisle, a boneless shoulder top blade steak will become a flatiron steak, a beef under blade boneless steak will become a Denver steak. Not all names in the meat counter will change -- ground beef will still be ground beef The new retail names will also come with new labels for retail packages, which will tell consumers what part of the animal's body the cut comes from, as well as include suggested cooking instructions.

A new study has suggested that cell phone radiation may be contributing to declines in bee populations in some areas of the world.

Bee populations dropped 17 percent in the UK last year, according to the British Bee Association, and nearly 30 percent in the United States says the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Parasitic mites called varroa, agricultural pesticides and the effects of climate change have all been implicated in what has been dubbed "colony collapse disorder" (CCD). But researchers in India believe cell phones could also be to blame for some of the losse

HARTFORD - Activists pressing for a state law requiring labels on food with genetically modified ingredients are disappointed and angry that the House of Representatives weakened a bill approved by the Senate earlier this week.

Early Friday, the House passed a bill that would mandate labels on foods with genetically modified organisms, or GMOs. But the law would only take effect if certain conditions are met: five other states with an aggregate population of 25 million people must pass similar legislation, and two of those states must be New Jersey, New York or another state that borders Connecticut.

HARTFORD -- Tara Cook-Littman didn't know much about genetically modified food until she began experiencing health problems and her 6-year-old son developed food allergies.

The mother of three from Fairfield changed her diet and eliminated all foods made with ingredients that had been genetically altered and, she says, the health issues disappeared. "I believe there are a lot of things wrong with our food supply but [genetically modified organisms, or GMOs] right now are the biggest threat to our health,'' Cook-Littman said.

Dr. Poland, a vaccine researcher, takes the lead in publicly criticizing the vaccine's failure to prevent measles.

If you read the "official" vaccination guidelines from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, you'll be told that vaccination is one of the best ways to protect your children (and yourself) against vaccine-preventable diseases. You'll also be informed that vaccines are the "safe, proven choice," with serious side effects occurring only very rarely. "Discomfort or tenderness at the injection site" is reported to be the primary "risk" of vaccines, while the CDC also states "nearly all children can be safely vaccinated" and "when vaccination rates drop in a community, it's not uncommon to have an outbreak." It's information that would send most parents right to their pediatrician for their child's next vaccination -- unless they had researched diseases and the vaccines independently. You see, the problem with the CDC's (and most other public health agencies') information is that it is highly biased and frequently misleading. It doesn't give you the whole story.

Recent study shows a strong link between pesticide exposure and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, as well as other chronic diseases.

The United States uses about 1.1 billion pounds of pesticides each year.1, 2 Worldwide pesticide use amounts to approximately 5.2 billion pounds annually. There's little doubt that the current pesticide load is taking a toll, as mounting research has linked pesticides to an array of serious health problems. Processed foods form the basis of nearly everyone's diet, as 95 percent of the food Americans buy is processed. If this is you, then you can consider yourself in the highest risk category, as such fare tends to contain the greatest amounts of hidden genetically engineered (GE) ingredients, and hence the highest pesticide load.
