Edible News

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.

In the late 1800s, one of every four trees in our forests was the American chestnut. These stately native trees provided valuable and handsome timber, excellent firewood and plentiful, nutritious nuts for both people and wildlife.

The two dozen tiny trees (12-inch "plantlets") were planted in May at a 1-acre site on the Camp Fire Club's 232-acre grounds and will be monitored closely by federal officials over the next few years. "The trees are 99.9 percent pure American chestnuts, with the addition of one wheat gene" to protect the tree from the killing fungus, says Preston Bruenn, the club's Conservation Committee chairman who is also an ESF alumnus. The main lodge of the Chappaqua club was built from American chestnut in the early 1900s.

This World Food Day, on Friday, all roads lead to the magnificent Nakuru County in Kenya's rift valley region; where a demonstration and a public debate have been organised to challenge the push for the introduction of Genetically Modified Organisms.

The Kenya Biodiversity Coalition (KBioC) together with Greenpeace Africa, Kenya Organic Agriculture Network (KOAN) and the Institute for Culture and Ecology (ICE) are joining the rest of the world to celebrate and address critical issues and concerns around the Right to food. Through the demonstration, the organisations aim to call on the Government of Kenya (GOK) not to lift the ban on GMOs.

No, we're not kidding. Help us stop this unwarranted attack. Action Alert!

The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, a division of the US Treasury Department, recently sent letters to several producers of kombucha, warning them that since their beverages supposedly exceeded the allowable alcohol limit, they must be labeled as alcoholic beverages and be subject to alcohol regulation or face hefty fines and legal action.

Help us protect the best tasting and healthiest cheese from a spurious new FDA attack. Action Alert!

George W. Bush's FDA banned the import of the finest French artisanal cheeses, which are usually made from raw milk that has been cultured with special bacteria, and then aged, which makes it even safer. This ban just happened to coincide with the French government refusing to join us in the invasion of Iraq and instead criticizing us. Now it appears that Barack Obama's FDA is going after our best domestic artisanal cheeses, also often made from raw milk.

A Wyoming legislative panel is considering a proposal that would ask the federal government to take the lead on how genetically modified foods are labeled.

The Joint Agriculture, State and Public Lands and Water Resources Interim Committee is scheduled to consider this month a resolution asking Congress to pass legislation creating a national policy for the labeling of the products.

Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, a top health care institution in the US, has finally given McDonald's the boot upon the realization that fast food may just not be the best choice for the sick (or anyone, really).

Well thank you, Cleveland Clinic! Considering that McDonald's food is full of GMOs, MSG, eggs that are a strange 'non-egg combination,' dimethylpolysiloxane (a silicone that can also be found in Silly Putty), and calcium silicate (a sealant used on roofs and concrete), you'll likely see an immediate improvement in your patient's health.

AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES reveals genetic engineering of soy disrupts the plant's natural ability to control stress, and invalidates the FDA's current regulatory framework of "substantial equivalence" used for approval of genetically engineered food (GMOs).

The study, led by Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai, Ph.D., an MIT-trained systems biologist, utilizes his latest invention, CytoSolve, a 21st century systems biology method to integrate 6,497 in vitro and in vivo laboratory experiments, from 184 scientific institutions, across 23 countries, to discover the accumulation of formaldehyde, a known carcinogen, and a dramatic depletion of glutathione, an anti-oxidant necessary for cellular detoxification, in GMO soy, indicating that formaldehyde and glutathione are likely critical criteria for distinguishing the GMO from its non-GMO counterpart.

Edinburgh, Scotland-Scottish rural affairs secretary Richard Lochhead announced genetically modified crops would be formally banned, saying that the move will help preserve Scotland's "clean, green status."

This decision follows up a previous ruling by the European Union earlier this year that allows member states and devolved administrations to restrict or ban the cultivation of genetically modified organisms within their territory. This decision includes the genetically modified maize previously approved by the EU, along with six other crops currently awaiting

The Pana, Ill.-area farmer had been using corn and soybean seeds genetically modified to work with glyphosate - the generic name for Monsanto's signature Roundup herbicide. But he reached a point at which he said it no longer made sense.

So he turned his back on GMO crops. "As they added more traits, we didn't really see a yield advantage. And every time they added a trait, they added cost," said Beyers, who also worries that GMO seeds could be damaging his soil.

Former pharmacist Niraj Naik hit headlines last week when his study into Coca-Cola went viral online after outlining what allegedly happens to your body after drinking a can of Coke.

"A can of diet coke provides no nourishment and would replace a more nutritious drink you could have drunk while potentially depleting your body of essential minerals. "It will never quench your thirst as it dehydrates rather than hydrates your body. A lack of vital water can lead to brain fog, poor concentration, fatigue and feeling irritable."
