Edible News

Winlock 15-year-old Taylor Rehmeyer has battled an aggressive brain cancer for nearly a decade with chemotherapy and radiation. But she and her mother say it was marijuana that finally cured her.

"She got an MRI (in May) that said no major abnormalities. The doctors at Seattle Children's Hospital don't want to admit it was cannabis, but I don't care. She's cancer-free," Karen Owen said in a recent interview. "It's more than we could have ever hoped for." Taylor was diagnosed at age 6 with a rare brain tumor that has returned three times. In September 2012, Taylor was one of the first children in America to receive proton radiation at Philadelphia's Roberts Proton Therapy Center. The high-tech treatments worked - for awhile. Taylor's tumor shrunk after initial radiation sessions but started growing again last August. That's when Owen, determined to heal her daughter, turned to marijuana oil therapy.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A quirky Wisconsin law that makes it a crime for restaurants to serve margarine at the table and not butter is being targeted for repeal.

Wisconsin banned the sale or use of margarine colored to imitate butter in 1895. That wasn't repealed until 1967, and since then the fight over margarine versus butter has largely cooled. Kooyenga says he doesn't anticipate much fervor over his proposal.

State Rep. Dean Kaufert said he was after things like soda and nachos when he proposed to limit how much junk food Wisconsinites could buy with food stamps.

"The list of foods that you'd be restricted from buying under this is -- I don't know who came up with it. I think it's kind of shocking," complained Rep. Fred Clark, D-Baraboo. Clark continued by saying "we're going to prevent -- or limit -- the extent to which" food stamps could be used for a long list of foods -- including organic foods.

Given Americans increased awareness and demand for more natural foods, it's hardly surprising that organic turkeys are on consumers' radar: production is up 103% in comparison to last year.

"This year, commodity turkeys have seen a scare and tight inventory because of avian flu. But that is not the case for the smaller markets like heritage and organic turkey growers. To tell you the truth, we are lucky that the path involved in avian flu was mostly in the Midwest. Our organic turkey farms are in Pennsylvania."

Police are investigating a vicious beating at a McDonald's drive-thru in Denver.

The attack happened in the middle of the busy lunch hour at the McDonald's on 3300 Colorado Boulevard near Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Radio reference recorded dispatchers describing the attack, as multiple 911 calls came in. "Two black females are inside. They're fighting inside the car still in the drive-thru," one dispatcher can be heard saying.

Many major food manufacturers have been on a kick to jump on the "all natural" bandwagon, with all sorts of processed food products now claiming to be healthy and free of artificial and synthetic ingredients.

However, one such company, Frito-Lay, is the subject of a new class action lawsuit that pegs the company for illegally marketing its snack products, which are loaded with genetically-modified (GM) ingredients, as being natural. Represented by Milberg LLP of Los Angeles, Calif., Julie Gengo of Richmond, Calif., recently filed a class action lawsuit against Frito-Lay alleging that its snack products are fraudulently labeled. Frito-Lay Sun Chips and Tostitos products are made with GM vegetable oils and potentially even GM corn, but they are both labeled as being "All Natural." But GMOs are not all-natural ingredients, and are, in fact, admittedly synthetic, which makes any product that contains them unnatural.

A woman from Tulsa, Oklahoma is suing the city's code enforcement teams after they illegally cut down her entire survival garden.

Denise Morrison, who started the garden after becoming unemployed, had over 100 medicinal and edible plants in her front and back yard. She told local Tulsa reporters that she started her garden, after becoming unemployed, as a way to feed herself and treat a variety of medical issues. Instead of relying on government handouts, this woman took matters into her own hands and decided to become self sufficient. She filled her yard with things like, fruit trees, berries, nut trees, and a wide variety of edible and medicinal herbs. She used these herbs to treat her diabetes, high-blood pressure and arthritis.
