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.

Every hour, orphaned young birds at The Wildlife Center signal their hunger. They're part of a large influx of orphaned or abandoned wildlife babies - birds, raccoons, bobcats, fawns and more from kind citizen rescuers.

The only problem is they aren't always orphans. A well-meaning person who spots a baby bird fallen out of a nest or a bear cub alone in a tree might assume the wildlife parent won't return - and inadvertently separate the young animal from its mama.

The Daily Show's Samantha Bee took a humorous look at some strange criticism bestowed upon Michelle Obama for her new organic garden at the White House.

The American Council on Science and Health, a research group funded by the chemical and fossil fuel industries, has criticized Obama for her garden, saying it sends the wrong message. The Council is anti-organic farming. They claim it poses a "serious public health concern."

A significant drop in neurodegenerative illnesses like Lou Gehrig's Disease and epilepsy, obesity, and certain cancers will occur when you convince others to stop using aspartame and MSG.

Excitotoxins have been found to dramatically promote cancer growth and metastasis. One aspartame researcher noticed that, when cancer cells were exposed to aspartame, they became more mobile; you see the same effect with MSG. It causes a cancer cell to become more mobile, and that enhances metastasis, or spread.

When a bunch of pesky flies got into insect expert Art Antonelli's house, he did not reach for a can of insecticide. Instead, he got out a fly swatter and his shoes, which he used to walk outside his home to look for the source of the sudden fly infestati

He found it, under his house: "I had a dead rat and a dead possum," say Antonelli, an entomologist at Washington State University's extension center in Puyallup. His fly problem was solved and the use of a pesticide was averted - something that experts say still happens too infrequently, even among health-conscious, organic-food-buying, environmentally aware consumers.

Back in one of my first posts I have a recipe for "foldable" whole wheat bread. I mentioned Vital Wheat Gluten as a component of the bread - the one that lets the bread rise higher and lets it fold without crumbling.

I'm just now getting around to giving you the recipe to make your own gluten, also known as wheat meat. By making your own, you also get bran and starch to use. Yes, this is the same bran as in what you buy in the stores. You can add some sugar to it and make a cereal out of it, if I look around, I can probably find a recipe for Grapenut Flakes.

There was a time, not so long ago, when eating in an environmentally, ethically conscious way was a drab business -- brown and beige food, with a few wilted organic vegetables relegated to a woebegone produce bin at the grocery store.

But these days, everything is coming up green and, forgive us, groovy. Buying delicious, locally and humanely raised food is the new righteous way to save your health and your planet. But as sustainable living turns chic, the choices for living the simple life become anything but. Should you wash your dishes by hand, or does the dishwasher use less water?

Dr. Thomas Cowan on how the A1 - A2 factor explains why even raw milk sometimes does not seem to be enough of an improvement over "store-bought"

"I have been involved in thinking about the medicinal aspects of cow's milk virtually my entire career. As one four-year-old child pointed out to me many years ago, "Mommy, I know why he always talks about milk, his name is Cow-an." So, I guess this milk "obsession" is no surprise. The obsession started in earnest about 25 years ago when I read the book The Milk of Human Kindness Is Not Pasteurized by maverick physician William Campbell Douglass, MD. This was one of the most influential books I have ever read...
