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.

Is fish safe to eat? That's becoming an incredibly hard question to answer. Typically you want select fresh wild seafood instead of farmed, but avoiding seafood might be a trend of the future.

"As of June, 2015, the radiation in the Pacific Ocean reached the US West Coast; the seafood you've been eating from the Pacific ocean is loaded with Cesium-137 and Strontium-90. Both radioactive. Strontium-90 mimics calcium. It ends up getting deposited in human bones, where the radiation wreaks havoc with bone marrow, causing bone cancers and blood cancers like Leukemia. The radiation in the fish is so terrible that wild-caught Alaskan Salmon, Pacific Herring and Canadian white fish are being found bloody, with cancerous tumors throughout their bodies."

An organic farmer was being raided so he posted a call for help on Facebook. Dozens showed up to face off with police -- and it worked.

Last month, 20 officials from the ministries of agriculture, natural resources and finance in Ontario, Canada raided Michael Schmidt's milk farm with the help of local police. They began removing equipment and computers, intending to confiscate them for the crime of providing raw milk to people who freely choose to drink it.

California health officials on Tuesday warned people to avoid eating Dungeness and Rock crabs that contain dangerous levels of a neurotoxin linked to a massive algae bloom off the West Coast.

High levels of domoic acid were found in crabs from the Oregon border to the southern Santa Barbara County line, the Department of Public Health reported. In severe poisoning cases, the neurotoxin can cause seizures, coma or death.

To restore the ocean ecosystem, you're saying we must put an end to overfishing and bottom trawling, which you liken to "catching songbirds with a bulldozer." Is there such a thing as eating fish responsibly these days?

Except for those living in coastal communities - or even inland if we're talking freshwater species - for most people, eating fish is a choice, not a necessity. Some people believe that the sole purpose of fish is for us to eat them. They are seen as commodities. Yet wild fish, like wild birds, have a place in the natural ecosystem which outweighs their value as food. They're part of the systems that make the planet function in our favor, and we should be protecting them because of their importance to the ocean.

2015 has not been a good year for food safety for 15 million Americans. While recalls for salmonella and listeria, the most common pathogens related to food recalls are down, recalls for undeclared food allergens have broken a record in 2015.

Foreign citizens and governments are focused on GMO content as another major health risk source. The bottom line is that people everywhere have a right to know the contents of the foods they eat. Money should not be able to buy laws that keep consumers in the dark. We have the right to know what we are eating, drinking and breathing. There are strict laws on declaring food allergens, which need to be extended to include GMO content. The refusal to identify GMO content has serious health repercussions in the US. The FDA has increased the allowable amount of glyphosate, the key ingredient in Roundup pesticide, in the past two years, e.g. as much as 30 times on potatoes. Glyphosate has been classified as "probably carcinogenic" by the World Health Organization. US companies selling products with GMO content to foreign markets are already relabeling these products or reformulating them to go into these markets.

In the Guardian in 2002 I discussed the sharp rise in the number of the world's livestock, and the connection between their consumption of grain and human malnutrition.

There's no doubt that the livestock system has gone horribly wrong. Fairlie describes the feedlot beef industry (in which animals are kept in pens) in the US as "one of the biggest ecological cock-ups in modern history". It pumps grain and forage from irrigated pastures into the farm animal species least able to process them efficiently, to produce beef fatty enough for hamburger production. Cattle are excellent converters of grass but terrible converters of concentrated feed. The feed would have been much better used to make pork.

It seems with the many reports of birth defects, organ failure, cancer, and other unsavory health conditions associated with GMO consumption, we should limit the use of GMO in baby products.

After all, babies are very sensitive to the foods they consume, and we already know that pesticides found in mother's milk can be damaging. Below you will learn of three companies which represent more than 90% of baby formula sales in the US that won't consider removing GMOs from your baby's food.

Raw meat. Raw eggs. Raw milk. Which of these is not like the other? Two are unremarkable features of American cuisine; consider rare steak and eggs over-easy.

All raw animal products carry an element of risk; this is why packaged meat and eggs, and restaurant menus, carry that ubiquitous warning to proceed at our own risk. For various reasons, our regulatory system and our culinary culture don't treat milk the same way. Can you imagine if all meat and eggs came pre-cooked, in order to protect the consumer from possible harm? That's effectively what pasteurization does for milk, changing it from a raw, "hazardous" ingredient into a finished, "safe" product, and altering our perception of its potential. Most consumers know lots of ways to prepare meat or eggs, but milk? That's just for drinking.

McDonald's is trying everything to keep customers flocking through their doors, but the brand, the product and the strategy continue to falter. Many McDonald's franchisees say the brand is suffering from a "deep depression" leading to the "final days".

Over a dozen franchisees lashed out at corporate management, calling CEO Steve Easterbrook's new marketing initiatives a distraction from the core issues that plague the McDonald's business model. New initiatives, like the all-day breakfast and the placement of new digital ordering kiosks, do not address the real problems at McDonald's.

EU lawmakers on Wednesday rejected by a huge majority a hard-won compromise which would have allowed EU member states to decide for themselves whether or not to import Genetically Modified Organisms for use in food and animal feed.

Parliament voted 557 to 75 against a law which took the European Commission years to negotiate amid deep suspicions about the possible health and safety implications of GMO products. The outcome, however, turned on a matter of principle -- allowing member states to ban GMO products would mean erecting barriers within the EU's most cherished achievement, its single market of more than 500 million people.
