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.

Two more European countries are rejecting genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Lativia and Greece have specifically said no to growing Monsanto's genetically modified maize, or MON810.

Scotland and Germany were the first countries that booted GMOs. They feared that GMO crops would contaminate the food and beverage and in this order put these industries in dangerous.

Organic food is often cited as being better for your health and for the environment. However, many people are put off by organic food's perceived higher price tag.

This month The Soil Association is raising awareness of organic food and wants you to Organic Your September. However, if you think organic food is too costly, switching wholly or partly to organic needn't be as expensive as you probably think.

If you asked most people what color egg yolks are, they would likely answer yellow. Yolks have always been associated with the color yellow, which is unfortunate because backyard chicken keepers know better.

Backyard chicken keepers know that yolks can and should be a bright, bold orange, and those bright, bold orange yolks are a sign of a happy, healthy hen. Last year, I compared my pasture-foraging, insect-pecking, soil-scratching, whole grain-feeding chickens' yolks to the yolks of both their "free-ranging" and factory-farmed counterparts. The results were clearly visible: Yolks from my homegrown eggs were not only darker, but also fuller and thicker. Even the eggshells were denser and harder to crack. But what's the big deal about orange yolks?

A massive food-monitoring programme in the wake of the Fukushima nuclear disaster has provided scientists with a unique look at how radioactivity peaks in different foods after a nuclear spill.

Almost four years since the incident, the first analysis of the data also confirms what multiple studies of Fukushima residents have already shown: few people are likely to have eaten food that exceeded strict Japanese limits on radioactive contamination.

If you use this common cooking oil thinking it's a healthy choice - think again. Get the scoop on how industry turned a waste product into a kitchen staple.

In 1956, a major cooking oil company published a series of magazine advertisements claiming that "fried foods become light foods" when vegetable oil is used in place of butter or lard. The clear message to health-savvy homemakers was that vegetable oil was a low-calorie solution to the more traditional fats they were cooking with. Millions of well-meaning cooks took the bait and made the switch, thinking their families would be better off as a result.

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.

The Transatlantic Consumer Dialogue (TACD)[1], a network of 77 EU and U.S. consumer organisations, today published a new resolution on consumer concerns about new genetic engineering techniques.

Consumers have right to know when new genetic engineering techniques are used, including in their food, but companies are lobbying to exempt such products from regulation. A number of new genetic engineering techniques have been developed which were not in use when current laws on genetically modified organisms (GMOs) were drafted.

The Great Depression was a time of hunger for many families and even today, many Americans remember great depression meals.

With all the talk about food storage and growing our own food, I did a little digging around to find out what some people ate during America's Great Depression of the 1930's. Surprisingly, a few of these were made by my mother and grandmother, traditions, I'm sure, from a more frugal era.

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.
