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.

CBS this Morning did a story on GMOs on January 17, 2016 (video length - 10:30). Right from the beginning, the reporting was clearly, once again, extremely deficient of proper research - but this was overshadowed by the obvious bias in favor of GMOs.

The story opened with a brief one-sided look at Hawai'i and GM papayas. The reporter asked a papaya grower if they were safe and the grower assured him that they were because he (and his children) had been consuming them for 20 years. The reporter accepted that as proof that they were therefore safe by insinuation because he didn't offer anything from his extensive research to counter that assertion.

I see it frequently in social media images: just add X drops of X essential oil to a tall glass of water. I see it on advice columns with lines such as "boost your health" or "prevent cancer!" and other diseases or illnesses.

Let's get diluted here Essentials oils are highly concentrated volatile compounds extracted from whole or parts of plants - tree resins, flowering shrubs, peels of citrus fruits, seeds, grasses and so forth. A distiller may use hundreds of pounds of plant material and get only a pound of essential oil in return. In the case of rose essential oil it takes approximately 50 roses to make a single drop of essential oil. It can take 2,000 pounds of plant material from the cypress tree to get a single pound of the essential oil.

A week before the 2014 Boston Marathon, Kevin "Kayvon" Edson was arrested by Boston police and charged with disturbing the peace, disorderly conduct, disturbing a public assembly, possession or use of a hoax device, and making a false bomb threat. Edson ran near the finish line of the Boston Marathon during the one year remembrance of the bombing while oddly dressed, wearing a backpack with a rice cooker in it, and shouting "Boston Strong."

The BBC has seen figures showing a demand for organic food has fallen. The move would mean farmers could cut costs without losing their organic status.

Mr Melchett said: "Over a dozen other certifying groups are backing the proposal which would allow meat and dairy farmers to use non-organic feed, typically costing half the price. Organic dairy farmer Noel Marsh "The animals would not be sold as organic but farmers would not have to go through the lengthy and expensive process of returning their land to being organic when the economy picks up."

This great-value family favourite freezes beautifully and is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser, from BBC Good Food magazine.

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large saucepan and fry the mince until browned - you may need to do this in batches. Set aside as it browns. Put the rest of the oil into the pan, add the vegetables and cook on a gentle heat until soft, about 20 mins.

As far back as 3,000 BCE Chinese physicians studied their patients fingernails for telltale signs of illness.

Thousands of years later, American country doctors, tending to their patients in small towns and farm villages, routinely checked patients' eyes, the surface of the tongue, and the appearance of the fingernails. Some knowledgeable practitioners still check these things, although most that do are doctors that practice holistic medicine. Why did the ancients and the old-time country doctors take such an interest in their patients' fingernails?

The eight candidates for Whatcom County Council all have five-figure war chests and, for now, none of that unlimited "independent expenditure" money the national media told us to look for.

Really raking in the dough this election season are the pro and anti-campaigns for Initiative 522, which calls for labels on genetically engineered farm products and processed foods. As reported by John Ryan at KUOW, Monsanto is the biggest contributor on either side by far, having just given nearly $4.6 million to the "No" on I-522 campaign. That brings the anti-522 campaign's donation total to $7.9 million, compared to $4.4 million for the "yes" side.

Does eating local honey help reduce pollen allergy symptoms? I've come across the idea several times but have never seen scientific studies about it, so I called my local naturopathic physician, Dr. Jean Layton, to see if there's any truth to it.

First, to answer the honey question, we talked about what is an allergic reaction. Layton uses a simple analogy. Inhaling allergens such as pollen or dust, she says, is like inhaling tiny little baseballs. Those baseballs hit cells along the way, some of which may have chemical receptors for them.

Yes to GMO labeling. I am very concerned with the food I eat. Like putting good fuel into our cars, I want to put good nutrition into my body, food that gives me energy and good health.

When I shop, I look for non GMO food items because I worry that GMO foods have not been carefully tested for possible effects on our health. In fact, there is currently no strict safety evaluation protocol like we have for drug testing. An example of my concern is that scientists have recently found that the insecticide in GMO corn is now showing up in our bloodstream and in umbilical cord blood of pregnant moms.
