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.

In this interview Dr. Maurice Hilleman reveals some astounding revelations. He admits that Merck drug company vaccines (Polio) had been deliberately contaminated with SV40, a cancer-causing monkey virus from 1953-1963.

For years, researchers suggested that millions of vials of polio vaccine, contaminated with SV40, infected individuals which caused human tumors, and by 1999, molecular evidence of SV40 infections were showing up in children born after 1982. Some experts now suggest the virus may have remained in the polio vaccine until as late as 1999. In 2002, the journal Lancet published compelling evidence that contaminated polio vaccine was responsible for up to half of the 55,000 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma cases that were occurring each year. And there is the likelihood that there was an importing and spreading of the AIDS virus in the same manner, as revealed in the video. At first no one could fathom how the virus had been transmitted into the human population, but this shocking video proves that it was deliberately added to the vaccine by Dr. Maurice Hilleman, which was "good science" at that time. Just Who is Dr. Maurice Hilleman? Now, for those of you who may think Dr. Hilleman was just another crackpot (he passed away in 2005), think again. He was, and still is, the leading vaccine pioneer in the history of vaccines. He developed more than three dozen vaccines-more than any other scientist in history-and was the developer of Merck's vaccine program. He was a member of the U.S. National Academy of Science, the Institute of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society, and received a special lifetime achievement award from the World Health Organization. When he was chief of the Department of Respiratory Diseases with what's now the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, he discovered the genetic changes that occur when the influenza virus mutates, known as shift and drift. He was also one of the early vaccine pioneers to warn about the possibility that simian viruses might contaminate vaccines.So Dr. Hilleman knew what he was talking about. And in his own words, "vaccines have to be considered the bargain basement technology for the 20th Century."

Today, many organic food products such as olive oil, coffee and wine are sold at a higher price because of the production methods involved, their special geographical origins or the absence of undesirable compounds.

Recently there have been several instances of falsification and fraud where conventionally grown produce has been sold as organic. This calls for tools capable of tracing the origins and cultivation methods of food products.

Olive oil comes from olives. Sesame seed oil comes from sesame seeds. But what is a canola? Canola is actually a made-up word for a genetically modified product.

Canola stands for "Canadian oil low acid." It's (sadly) a Canadian invention and subsidized by the government. The subsidies make it very cheap to use, so almost all processed or packaged foods contain canola oil. Be sure to read the ingredients. Here's why you should:

Reason TV gives a report on the problems plaguing California's Central Valley, once a breadbasket to the world, and now a government-created basket case of dust, unemployment, poverty, and now starvation.

The short documentary focuses on two federal policies that heavily impact the farming region, the first water policy and environmentalism, and the second immigration. Without doubt, immigration policy impacts farming areas like the Central Valley (as well as the Midwestern plains), but the problems in the Central Valley now have nothing to do with federal enforcement of immigration law. The enforcement of the law has been spotty at best during the last three administrations. Nor has Congress done much about it; building a fence on the California border shifted the crossings to Arizona, which has had to deal with the traffic and its attendant issues.

BOSTON -- Organic food is increasingly more popular. But dietitians say shoppers have to be educated about the products because some of them are high in fat and calories, or not really natural at all.

"You need to read the label and have some idea of what your calorie boundaries are," said registered dietician Jen Reid. "Otherwise you are going to wind up with a very high calorie food despite the fact that it's organic or natural," she said.

In Western Australia organic farmer Stephen Marsh has had his organic accreditation suspended after independent testing showed his oats and cereal crops had been contaminated by genetically modified (GM) seeds.

The Liberal Party Barnett Government allowed Genetically Modified (GM) canola crops to be grown commercially early this year, despite warnings that contamination of organically grown crops was a palpable risk. The National Association of Sustainable Agriculture Australia (NASAA) is conducting an official investigation.

Washington's organic apple growers need to gain a better understanding of how much of their crop is sold without an organic label, costing them higher prices in the retail market.

Washington leads the nation in organic apple, pear and cherry acreage, primarily in the central, irrigated regions of the state. For the first time in several years, however, organic acres for apples and cherries declined in 2010 -- 6 percent for apples and 12 percent for cherries. Organic pear acreage increased 4 percent.

Britain's Health secretary Andrew Lansley created what he calls five "responsibility deal" networks with businesses, co-chaired by ministers, to write the new policies.

In the decaying British Empire, where there's a government camera on every street corner, Britain's Department of Health has decided to allow fast food companies like McDonald's and KFC, as well as PepsiCo, Kellogg's, and Mars, to craft its official government policy on obesity, alcohol and diet-related disease.

BOSTON -- There's a science to supermarket shopping, according to food marketers. And now spaces are being designed based on what they know about how we shop.

According to George, the market's next challenge is to draw the shopper further into the store. "They're trying to put the hot features in the middle of the aisle so you have to go down there and see those," said George. Research shows a lot of shoppers do a U-turn. They get what they want out of the aisle and then turn back.
