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.

Carrol Krause, a former reporter for the Herald-Times of Bloomington, Indiana, had to retire from her journalism career because of an ovarian cancer diagnosis in 2014.

A few months ago she started having digestive issues and could no longer eat normal food. What hospice workers brought her as meal replacements horrified her. Krause writes: "Hospice had the very best of intentions, [but] the stuff they sent over was not real FOOD. In fact, I'm outraged at the idea that they feed this stuff to dying people." What the hospice provided to Krause was a bag full of products by Ensure: pudding, shakes, and a drink that pretends to be apple juice.

The organic revolution has also coincided with a gluten-free revolution, but there are still millions of people who love their bread way too much to ever give it up.

Our bread has changed in many different surprising ways over the years, but there are plenty of breadmakers doing it the right way that have sprung up as consumers demand healthier, non-GMO and organic choices.

Is your favorite organic company owned by a huge corporation or is it truly organic and independent? As our favorite organic companies have grown, many of them have also been gobbled up by huge corporations.

While most organic companies pledge to continue their high standards of organic purity upon being bought out, it doesn't always work that way in practice. For example Silk, a popular almond milk brand, actually switched from non-GMO to GMO soybeans without telling their customer base upon being purchased by WhiteWave, a spin-off company of the massive pro-GMO corporation Dean Foods. At the end of the day, buying organic is always a smart decision. But as the Silk and other stories show, buying small and local is usually the best decision.

Who really wants the new genetically modified potato in their shopping cart, anyway? Certainly not the consumers, who have been flocking away from Monsanto and other companies' GMOs like the plague, buying organic food at a clip not seen years.

And it's certainly not the potato farmers, either: the National Potato Council itself even admitted that the new GMO potatoes from the company J.R. Simplot could cause financial losses in the billions for American farmers. "(There is) concern about the potential for GMO technology to disrupt potato exports valued at more than $1.6 billion," Potato Council CEO John Keeling admitted in July 2014. He also said there needs to be clear labeling of the GMO potatoes, something that has not happened. - See more at:

Food is sacred no matter what country or what culture you come from: it's how families bond with each other at the end of the day, how we nourish ourselves, a way to connect with strangers and so much more.

For thousands of years our food producers have treated the process with respect, up until the past few decades that is. And lately, things have been spiraling out of control, with genetic modification techniques, mutagenesis (subjecting seeds to radiation) and other bizarre production techniques taking over. More leeway for GMO and artificial food producers has led to the following monstrosities: four food experiments that should have never the light of day, and make you wonder just what we did to deserve this kind of disrespect from the people responsible for feeding and nourishing us.

Thanks in large part to health documentaries and the grassroots movement for food integrity and transparency, legions of customers, especially younger ones, have begun a mass exodus from fast food companies.

Because while the new beef patties are as natural as it gets in the fast food world, the chain's definition of an "All-Natural" burger smacks of the same deception food consumers everywhere have grown to loathe almost as much as the chemical ingredients themselves.

The popularity of butter has exploded lately as more and more people find out the truth about margarine, and how unhealthy it really is for the body.

As far as the most popular brands of butter go, the new, unhealthy breed of "conventional" butter from GMO-fed cattle is still the most popular, but more and more people are wising up and switching to grass-fed, in large part because of the popular new book 'The Bulletproof Diet' which recommends putting the butter in coffee for a boost of energy and focus.

It goes without saying that virtually everyone would prefer to eat food grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides and other chemicals and techniques like genetic modification, but many of them face the same obstacle: higher prices.

Organic food was allowed to become a specialty item despite its status as the most traditional way of producing food, and now the associated higher prices have added another obstacle to those who wish to eat the way nature intended.

The takeover of the American food supply by genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, was done without the consent of the public, and now most of the country is still coming to grips with the fact that 70-80% of its food products contain GMO ingredients.

Several news sources have reported on the private diets of many of the top politicians from across the political spectrum, and - surprise, surprise! - it really does seem as if there's nothing new in the way these politicians go about their business (saying one thing in public and doing the opposite behind our backs).

Genetically modified foods are easier to avoid in some countries that others, but the genetic contamination in the United States is so high right now that the odds say you'll be consuming at least a small percentage of GMO material.

Soybeans and soy products are particularly high risk items since the vast majority of soy in the U.S. is genetically modified to withstand heavy doses of health-damaging agrochemicals, but there may be a way to protect damage from GMO soybeans according to a new study from a team of researchers in the UK, Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
