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.

With flu season around the corner and signs for "flu shots" in every store, this is a natural alternative that is inexpensive and effective. It can be made easily at home.

If you or your child has ever had a bad case of the flu, you know how miserable it can be. Especially for moms, it is awful to see your children feeling so bad and not be able to fix it. Black elderberries (sambucus nigra) have been shown to prevent flu and speed recovery in those who have the flu. Elderberries contain high levels of A, B and C and stimulate the immune system. Several natural elderberry syrups are available at health stores or online, but usually for around $15 or more for 4-8 ounces. This recipe makes 16 ounces for a cost of under ten dollars and kids love the taste!

Mark Bittman, a New York Times food critic, admits he used an "inappropriate phrase" in an August 3 blog posting about Chick-Fil-A.

In fact, it was down right Bitter, man, because he seemed to be rejoicing that a vice president of the fast food company had died of a heart attack back in July. Bittman apologized to his readers for the giddiness he displayed about the death of Chick-Fil-A's Vice President of Public Relations, Don Perry, who passed away on July 27.

By some accounts, since Zimbabwe's terror-inducing Robert Mugabe came to power more than thirty years ago, up to 480,000 people have lost their lives.

Of those not killed outright or starved to death, tens of thousands of people have had their property stolen. Many were beaten, raped, and left for dead. As these outrages were occurring, the nation's economy was devastated following Mugabe's politically-motivated "land reforms" of 2000 and the years thereafter which saw a one-time economic bright spot in Africa reduced to ruins. And in all this violation of human rights the New York Times sees a "golden lining." How could there be a "golden lining" in all this murder--even genocide--and destruction?

The mayors of Chicago and Boston have walked into a "First Amendment buzzsaw" by denying Chick-Fil-A the right to open and operate their fast food stores in the two cities.

If TIME magazine realizes that the Democrats are misusing their powers, it's must be a clear violation of Chick-Fil-A's free speech. Plain and simple. TIME's Michael Scherer goes over the whole series of events that led up to the two mayors -- Rahm Emanuel of Chicago and Thomas Menino of Boston -- imagining they have the power to deny Chick-Fil-A a right to operate because Christians run the company. Scherer's analysis is that this belief in their powers puts the mayors in "tricky legal waters."

Ethical vegans allow themselves a pretense of moral and ethical superiority with no real effort.

Veganism dates back to 1944, when British Vegan Society co-founder Donald Watson coined the term to mean "non-dairy vegetarian." The Society expanded the definition in 1951 to state that "man should live without exploiting animals." Vegans eschew animal products in food, clothing, household products, or for any other reason. There are a variety of reasons why people "go vegan." Some simply don't like the taste of meat. Some claim veganism is "green," and that a vegan lifestyle minimizes impact on the environment.

There are a variety of reasons why people "go vegan." Some simply don't like the taste of meat. Some claim veganism is "green," and that a vegan lifestyle minimizes impact on the environment. Do ethical vegans live up to this stated standard? Do their actions live up to their own stated ethical principle, that animals have the right not to be treated as property? Do their actions really result in zero animal use?

Increasing concern over food safety is attracting more people to organically produced food, and new farmer's markets let shoppers meet local growers to find out where every egg, sprout and apple comes from.

Most of the food comes from small farms in Pudong New Area and on Chongming Island (County). They are either certified "organic," a costly process, or they strictly adhere to principles of organic farming.

A few responses to my recent column on the Chick-fil-A business are worth sharing with the rest of the class.

The president of Chick-fil-A didn't say anything other than that he believed marriage was between a man and a woman. This happens to be a view codified in federal law as well as the law in over 40 states. Only a minority of states that take a contrary view have done so democratically, none have yet done so by popular vote. This view of marriage is also held by anywhere from 40 percent to a majority of the American people, and by both major party presidential candidates in 2008 (and by the sitting president of the United States as recently as the beginning of May)...

Meat and poultry prices in Russia have fallen dramatically in the wake of the country's accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO), producers' unions have warned.

According to the latest data, poultry prices in Russia reached RUB65-70 (US$2.15-2.32) per kg in carcase weight in the middle of February, with pork prices down to RUB63-65 ($2.09-2.15) per kg. Both these levels are the lowest Russian consumers have ever seen and, according to experts, they are threatening to devastate small and medium-sized producers in the country. The fall in prices appears to be due to the competition of domestic products with cheaper imports, whose share in the Russian market grew significantly after the country joined the WTO in August 2012.

Often in the wake of a big massacre such as what happened recently in Aurora, people are scared, sad and looking for answers.

Unfortunately, the media ALWAYS distorts the problem; placing blame on the need for stricter gun laws, or gun bans altogether. The truth is the gun is hardly the problem as everyone knows; guns don't kill people, people kill people. When incidents like this occur, shouldn't people be focusing on what caused this senseless act to happen in the first place, rather than the weapons that were used to carry out these horrific acts? But don't expect the media to let you know that one of the biggest causes is the products of the pharmaceutical companies that just happen to bankroll the corporate gatekeepers.
