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.

Anyone who still supports the usurper-and-cheat Obama based on his agriculture "policies" has apparently not been paying any attention whatsoever to reality.

Contradicting nearly every promise he made on the campaign trail with regards to reforming American agriculture and kicking out the special interests, Obama has done the exact opposite of virtually everything he said he would do, filling key government positions in both agriculture and trade with executives from the chemical and biotechnology industries. With a legacy that is now substantially more corrupt than even that of Bush Jr., Obama has exposed himself as nothing more than a puppet and lapdog of corporate agriculture, having lied his way into the White House with promises of ending the reign of terror that corporations still hold over American agriculture. Rather than keep any of these promises, Obama instead decided to fortify the ranks of the very same corporate oligarchy that continues to promote unlabeled genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), toxic crop chemicals, environmentally-destructive monoculture, and other industrial systems.

I'm a fair weather purchaser of organic produce. If it's on the shelf at my local New World or fruit and vegetable store I always choose organic over nonorganic but I won't trek across town.

But my haphazard attitude towards buying organic produce evaporated in light of the 2012 Shopper's Guide to Pesticides in Produce released by US-based Environmental Working Group (EWG). This guide features a so called Dirty Dozen - a list of fruit and vegetables "most commonly contaminated with pesticides". The findings are based on an analysis of over 60,000 samples, and "nearly all the studies ... tested produce after it had been washed or peeled."

Well, why not?  Sexual activity is as voluntary as drinking coffee and going to the gym, and at least the latter has potentially profound implications for long-term health.

While the federal government demands that employers provide free contraception and sterilization to their employees on demand, why not mandate a bunch of goods and services that have beneficial effects? Allysia Finley offers her modest proposal in today's Wall Street Journal in response to the immodest diktat of the Obama administration...

A ten percent increase from 2008.

Instead of showing signs of reversing from this unsustainable course (unfortunately sustainability is mostly only a concern in the environmental sense), the trend is only picking up speed...

Wyoming's governor signed a bill this week which will "stop overregulation of locally produced foods" by making it illegal for the state government to require "licensure, permitting, certification, inspection, packaging, or labeling".

In practice, this means that farmers markets and small food stands will be able to proceed without the interference of government busybodies. As the bill explains, its purpose "is to allow for the sale and consumption of homemade foods, and to encourage the expansion of agricultural sales by farmers markets, ranches, farms and home based producers."

Like most children with a food allergy, Natalie Giorgi was raised with a keen understanding of how careful she had to be.

At 13, she knew that her peanut allergy could be deadly, and her parents were exceedingly cautious about what she ate. "She never put any dessert or anything that was questionable into her mouth without consulting someone," said Augusta Brothers, a family friend. But Friday night, years of caution couldn't save her.

Do you demand answers as to why certain people want to stamp a label on a poison product, but not demand the poisoning of our children and planet be stopped?! We demand those answers.

Do YOU want a clean and toxic-free planet? Do you want clean food, clean water and clean air? I began my studies, research and quest for truth, honesty and a cure for our son's "incurable" disease, Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis. (Our son, Coty encountered 28 surgeries and 2 near death experiences with 7 different surgeons with this deadly disease). I began this quest 22 years ago, but with no avail or light at the end of the tunnel. Back then, I had only known to rely on the doctors of the western medicine to treat and keep our son alive.

While the economic malfeasance of agricultural subsidies may be relatively low on the totem pole of the federal government's massively wasteful and intrusive spending binge (we've definitely got some bigger fish to fry), they are in and of themselves astoundingly terrible ideas that come with a whole host of neighborhood effects.

We suspected it would only be a matter of time before Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) launched his next broadside against supplements. Once again, Durbin and his allies, including Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT).

The bill this time is the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), an appropriations bill to fund the military for FY 2016. The House passed its version of the bill in May. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) introduced what is called "an amendment in the nature of a substitute" to create a Senate version of the House-passed bill. The Blumenthal/Durbin amendments were introduced on top of the McCain legislation.
