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.

I remember the first time I tasted Dasani bottled water. It was 2004 and I was at a gym in Orange County, California. The drinking fountain at the gym was out of order so I purchased a bottle of water from a vending machine.

I cracked open that lid and-YUCK! I had never tasted water so disgusting. Who knew water could have such a strong taste? At the time, I assumed my taste buds were off and eventually I drank Dasani bottled water again... always with the same reaction. Gross! I've finally learned my lesson. Unless I'm extremely parched, I would rather remain thirsty than drink Dasani.

Organic meat and milk differ markedly from their conventionally produced counterparts in measures of certain nutrients, a review of scientific studies reported on Tuesday.

In particular, levels of omega-3 fatty acids, beneficial for lowering the risk of heart disease, were 50 percent higher in the organic versions. "The fatty acid composition is definitely better," said Carlo Leifert, a professor of ecological agriculture at Newcastle University in England and the leader of an international team of scientists who performed the review.

A report released last month said influenza vaccinations provide only modest protection for healthy young and middle-age adults, and little if any protection for those 65 and older.

It's flu-shot season, and public health officials are urging everyone over 6 months of age to get one. Many businesses provide on-site flu shots, and some hospitals have told staff members that they have to wear masks if they do not get the vaccine. By 2020, United States health leaders want 80 percent of the population to get yearly shots. For vaccine manufacturers, it's a bonanza: Influenza shots - given every year, unlike many other vaccines - are a multibillion-dollar global business. But how good are they?

When people say they only eat organic, or only cook organic food, I can't help but wince a little. It's a distinction that is thrown around, as if doing so makes you a better cook or smarter or healthier. Newsflash: it doesn't.

When something is organic, it means that the product's ingredients have met a government-set standard for growing practices. That means less pesticides in the food. But if the organic item is processed, it is still a processed food. So whether you are serving up organic sandwich cookies or Oreos, your kids are still eating junk food.

Norwegian biorefinery company Borregaard creates a fat substitute that will give the body more fiber.

Borregaard, a Norwegian biorefinery company, has developed a fat substitute called Sense-Fi that can be used to bulk out things such as ice cream, yogurt and mayonnaise, as well as be added to emulsified meat, such as hot dogs. According to Socius, a nutritional company that supplies the product, Sense-Fi is a thickener that looks like white cream and provides the same texture and mouthfeel as fat. It is made from micro-fibrillated cellulose, which is a waste product trees produce when they are converted into timber.

Wayfaring Chocolate

My world briefly shuddered on its axis today. For a few hours, I seriously considered trading in my chocolate habit.

Chocolove's new Almonds and Sea Salt in Dark Chocolate bar, which is in fact so new that it is not yet listed on the website. Despite being only 55%, and therefore a far sweeter chocolate base than I'd usually pick, I adore this chocolate.

Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment.

Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.
