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.

When I was 14 years old, my grandfather died of Alzheimer's disease. I remember the years leading up to his death and how quickly his mind wore away.

Alzheimer's and dementia are some of the scariest and most emotionally-triggering degenerative diseases. But they are easier to prevent than previously thought. If you have a family history of one of these diseases or are worried about what they may do to you as you age, one of the first things you can do is modify your diet.

Over 300 tons of radioactive water are still leaking into the sea each day. And if that wasn't enough, reactor 4 is severely damaged and sinking-the removal of the spent fuel rods will be one of the most urgent and dangerous tasks ever undertaken.

Many experts are urging people to stop eating sea life from the Pacific. This would obviously include anything from Japan. Marine chemist Ken Buesseler found Pacific cesium levels 50 million times higher than pre disaster levels. (The levels tapered off but plateaued at 10,000 times higher than normal.) The algae get contaminated and it goes to the little fish, to the big fish and then to you.

One of the cornerstones of preparedness is storing food. No one argues the point of whether food is important. Maybe an argument can be found in where food is placed in the hierarchy of prepping needs, but no one will say that it does not have a place.

What I have found, though, is that not too many discussions occur about where these rations will be stored. It seems as though it is always assumed that every prepper has an extra room in the house to fill with shelves that can be neatly stacked with cans and boxes and labeled by category or a basement to do the same. I know that I, for one, have not always had these options available to me. Whether you live in a large house, a small house, an apartment or a dorm room, the need for stored food doesn't change, resulting in the need for places to store foods wherever you may live.

The time has come to choose between a GM based, or a non GM-based, world food supply. Genetically modified (GM) foods are often promoted as a way to feed the world. But this is little short of a confidence trick.

Far from needing more GM foods, there are urgent reasons why we need to ban them altogether. Biofuels are crops grown for fuel rather than food. GM giant Monsanto has been at the heart of the lobbying for biofuels - while profiting enormously from the resulting food crisis and using it as a PR opportunity to promote GM foods! "The climate crisis was used to boost biofuels, helping to create the food crisis; and now the food crisis is being used to revive the fortunes of the GM industry." - Daniel Howden, Africa correspondent, The Independent (UK)

Genetically modified (GM) foods are often promoted as a way to feed the world. But this is little short of a confidence trick. Far from needing more GM foods, there are urgent reasons why we need to ban them altogether.

GM foods won't solve the food crisis. A 2008 World Bank report concluded that increased biofuel production is the major cause of the increase in food prices. Biofuels are crops grown for fuel rather than food. GM giant Monsanto has been at the heart of the lobbying for biofuels - while profiting enormously from the resulting food crisis and using it as a PR opportunity to promote GM foods! "The climate crisis was used to boost biofuels, helping to create the food crisis; and now the food crisis is being used to revive the fortunes of the GM industry." - Daniel Howden, Africa correspondent, The Independent (UK) "The cynic in me thinks that they're just using the current food crisis and the fuel crisis as a springboard to push GM crops back on to the public agenda. I understand why they're doing it, but the danger is that if they're making these claims about GM crops solving the problem of drought or feeding the world, that's bullshit." - Prof Denis Murphy, head of biotechnology, University of Glamorgan, Wales

Last week, the governors of 10 states declared an official recognition of National Bulk Foods Week. Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Maine, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Oregon, Rhode Island and Vermont all encouraged their state's shoppers to...

The Bulk Is Green Council, a food organization based in Portland, Oregon, also issued a letter encouraging more than 500 grocery retailers to display signs advertising the campaign and inviting customers to shop in bulk during National Bulk Foods Week. If you missed National Bulk Foods Week, you can still join the movement by shopping at a local store that sells food in bulk! Buying food in bulk refers to dry, unpackaged, often organic goods like flour, spices, nuts, coffee, cereal and dried fruit that are stored in large bins in grocery stores.

According to the World Health Organization, 3.5 billion people suffer from some type of parasitic infection. A parasite is any organism that lives and feeds off of another organism.

Parasites take and utilize your body's nutrients and in so doing, hurt the entire organism. Parasites take on a number of different forms and can thrive throughout the body. They most often live within the human intestines. Some eat your food, making you hungry after every meal and unable to gain weight. Others consume your red blood cells, causing anemia.

It is spring now, the perfect time to plant those crops, for homegrown, organic, non GMO and pesticide-free food. Gardening can be done anywhere, even sprouts on the kitchen counter.

Growing your own food does not have to be expensive. In fact, you can re-grow plants from scraps of fruits and veggies in your kitchen.

Monsanto seems intent on taking over the food supply of the entire world. Their sterile, toxic seeds are in every corner of the globe. Hungary recently made headlines for burning 1000 acres of fields of GMO crops to the ground.

Dozens of nations have banned, or at the very least, regulated, GMO crops and products. The heat is on the monolithic seed corporation, and it's time to turn the temperature up even more in North America. The federal government has made no secret of their support of Monsanto, so it's up to us, the consumers, to starve them out. The best way to do that, according to the founder of Eat Local Grown, Rick Davis, is to "Starve Monsanto, feed a farmer." Every dollar we put into the pockets of small farmers is a dollar that Monsanto doesn't receive. By cutting off the funding for Monsanto through consumer choices, we can starve this beast out.

The number of Americans receiving subsidized food assistance from the federal government has risen to 101 million, representing roughly a third of the U.S. population.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that a total of 101,000,000 people currently participate in at least one of the 15 food programs offered by the agency, at a cost of $114 billion in fiscal year 2012. That means the number of Americans receiving food assistance has surpassed the number of private sector workers in the U.S.
