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.

Isolation comes with the territory in the Sandhills of Nebraska, where grassy dunes laced with wet meadows undulate above the Ogallala Aquifer, and the thinning towns are few and far between.

In the four years since he settled here, Prescott Frost has found himself set apart more than most. In a state where corn is king, he is on a quest to breed a better cow for the grass-fed beef industry - one that can thrive without chemical pesticides, antibiotics, hormones and, the clincher, grain - and to market his own brand of artisanal meat. "The intrigue and the interest in eating grass-fed beef is more in the areas of urban concentration, and where you have the cheaper land is more in the rural Midwest areas," Mr. Kirschenmann said. "In New York, land is so expensive that farmers can't afford to raise animals from birth to butcher on grass."

The WHO & UNICEF are taking steps to counter anti-vaccine activism, and some plans are downright scary.

How would you act if you have decided to buy a car? You would probably visit the car showrooms, talk to the salesmen, collect literature on the cars, visit other showrooms, search the internet, talk to people who have purchased cars, exchange ideas with your friends, talk to the mechanics, and find out more from people who have faced problems with a particular brand. You would also be concerned about the performance and the safety features and wonder if they are up to the advertisements and sales pitch. Pretty much normal, is it not? Car manufacturers take it on their stride. They know that this is a typical consumer behaviour pattern. The consumers are choosy, picky, and try to have the best value for money. They have distinct individual needs and choices that have to be met in order to stay afloat and be profitable. The manufacturers respond by manufacturing quality cars that are better than the competitors' and take great care to ensure that both performance and safety aspects are above reproach.

In 1993, I was in Russia to witness Boris Yeltsin's first referendums, which was perhaps the high point of Russian democracy.

Along with the sweep of history, I also remember boarding a midnight train from Moscow to St. Petersburg and being accosted by some kind of Russian gendarme. This fellow berated me in words none of which I understood. I could tell he wanted something from me (money, probably). So I stood there looking bewildered and playing dumb - my specialty - until the guy finally lapsed into frustrated silence and I could walk away. Another Russian later told me that it was indeed a shakedown attempt. The incident came to mind when I heard about a recent attempted robbery down in Tampa.

There are *substantial gaps* in what is known about the health and environmental effects of many of the materials used in food packaging in your supermarket.

While storing food in containers dates back thousands of years, and food has been sold in bottles since the 1700s and cans since the 1800s, what might be considered the modern age of food packaging began in the 1890s when crackers were first sold in sealed waxed paper bags inside a paperboard box.

"Dietary supplements" aren't necessarily drug free or safe, let alone "nutritional."

According to the FDA, a drug is a substance (other than nutrients) intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease, or to affect the structure or function of the body. Seems clear enough -- that is, until politics and big money get involved. With the aid of a 1994 law crafted by Senators Orrin Hatch and Tom Harkin, the mega-billion dollar supplements industry has done a splendid job of obfuscating this definition.

Describing the research that indicates GMOs are harmful to human health and the environment and should be labeled if they are going to be in our food supply. What are GMOs and should I be concerned about them in my food?

GMOs (or "genetically modified organisms") have been created through the gene-splicing techniques of biotechnology (also called genetic engineering, or GE). This science allows DNA material from one species to be injected into another species in a laboratory, creating combinations of plant, animal, bacteria, and viral genes that do not occur in Nature or result from traditional crossbreeding methods. Doing this provides financial benefits to biotechnology companies and large-scale farming corporations. For instance, seeds can be engineered to be insect resistant and/or herbicide tolerant. Produce can be developed that has a longer shelf life or is shaped to facilitate more efficient transportation. Scientists have even tried to introduce a cold-resisting gene from Arctic fish into tomatoes to prevent them from freezing and thus lengthen their growing season. Hand- in-hand with seed patenting, GE seeds can provide agribusiness with massive profits.

Many breakfast foods, snack foods and sodas made in the United States contain genetically engineered ingredients. You may be thinking, "What's the big deal about these products?

Food is food, right?" Wrong. You should know that GMO foods can come with some risks to your health. Food technology has changed dramatically in recent years. Genetically engineered ingredients have now been produced by inserting genes from bacteria, viruses and even humans into plants and animals. And scientists are finding signs of trouble with this approach, including increased pesticide use and risks to human health.

Whether you eat them or not, do you know what the risks are from eating GMOs?

If you don't know whether or not you're eating genetically modified organisms , you're not alone-at least in the U.S. Despite the many petitions and appeals for state or federal regulations on labeling foods that contain GMOs, none have passed. And that means companies still don't have to disclose whether or not a product includes genetically modified organisms. What's the big deal, you ask?

We know, it's so hard to resist walking by any Cinnabon, especially at the mall or airport, where your healthy food options are already limited. Just one whiff of the sweet frosted, melted cinnamon can draw you in.

One Cinnabon contains as much sugar as a 100 Grand chocolate bar plus nine Hershey's Kisses with almonds and, 11 Pixy Stix! Skip the sugar-laden bun and avoid the horrific sugar crash that would surely follow after ingesting it.

Ever wonder what's really in the food sold at grocery stores around the world? People keep asking me, "What ingredients should I avoid?"

So I put together a short list that covers all the most toxic and disease-promoting ingredients in the food supply. These are the substances causing cancer, diabetes, heart disease and leading to tens of billions of dollars in unnecessary health care costs across America (and around the world).
