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.

Oh, peoples. I"m about to reveal something to you that has taken me months to work up the nerve to confess.

Are you ready for this? {I'm not sure I am, but here goes...} I haven't used toothpaste in over a year. Oh my gosh. I can't believe I just said that out loud. On the internet. I guess now I have to explain myself, huh?

It made for great headlines, but the fact that the UK version of Coca-Cola's Dasani brand bottled water comes out of the London public supply should hardly have come as a surprise.

Despite the Hype, Bottled Water is Neither Cleaner nor Greener than Tap WaterCoca Cola's Plan: Just Say No - To Drinking Tap Water "Coke's in hot water," "Eau dear" and "The real sting" were three good examples of the newspaper headline writer's art, but the only real difference between Dasani and many other bottled waters is that the humble origin of the product is firmly in the spotlight.

Dozens of foreign insects and plant diseases slipped undetected into the United States in the years after 9/11, when authorities were so focused on preventing another attack that they overlooked a pest explosion that threatened the nation's food supply.

At the time, hundreds of agricultural scientists responsible for stopping invasive species at the border were reassigned to anti-terrorism duties in the newly formed Homeland Security Department - a move that scientists say cost billions of dollars in crop damage and eradication efforts from California vineyards to Florida citrus groves.

After living in Arizona for many years, my family and I love good Mexican food, including the staple: tortillas.

I love to be in the kitchen - creating and working - and you'll usually find me there, singing, rocking a baby to sleep while mixing, reading oral copy work for my children... but when making tortillas, I'm usually in a less-than-stellar mood. Downright crabby! Recently, my husband steered clear of the kitchen on a tortilla-making day. A few minutes later, however, he reappeared, lurking around like he had something to say. "Why don't you just make tortillas like you make crepes? Wouldn't that be easier?"

Getting kids into the kitchen to cook with you is a win-win situation, no matter how old they are and no matter what you make. By interacting with you in the kitchen, your child will gain more than just learning how to cook.

First and foremost, you will have the opportunity to foster a greater sense of intimacy between you and your child. Here are a few other positive results from interacting together in the kitchen, which are then broken down into age groups...

California's Department of Public Health is keeping tight-lipped after being scolded by the Environmental Protection agency for failing to spend $455 million in federal funding to improve the state's water infrastructure.

The state agency has acknowledged it received a letter of non-compliance for holding on to the program's largest unspent sum in the nation. But it says it has no immediate comment about the revelation. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued the letter to the state on Friday. The EPA also says the state gave out grants and loans to projects that were not shovel-ready and lacked adequate staffing to administer and track the fund.

I've talked about the Orwellian regulation of sugar here in the past. While it is a serious issue, the content of the debate was at the time, an academic one.

The University of California, San Francisco (Where else?) pediatric doctor Robert Lustig, who said the regulation of sugar is representative of a "crisis" is the fodder for conservative derision for his characteristic hyperbole. Unfortunately, when these academic ideas migrate into government policy, the levity of the situation disipates. When New York City Mayor and all around social habit busybody, Michael Bloomberg announced that New York City would be effectively banning large size sugary drinks over 16 ounces, I had to balk.

The "D" in vitamin D doesn't stand for dementia. Or does it? We know that many older adults don't get enough vitamin D, and that's a problem. It can leave your bones brittle and more easily broken if you slip and fall.

What we didn't know, until now, is that a lack of vitamin D may be every bit as bad for your brain as it is for your body. According to a spate of recent studies, people age 60 and older who have low levels of vitamin D are significantly more apt to suffer cognitive decline.

New research from Black Hat shows it's possible to trick water and energy infrastructure to cause physical damage-and securing these systems remains painfully slow.

Three presentations scheduled to take place at the Black Hat computer security conference in Las Vegas today will reveal vulnerabilities in control systems used to manage energy infrastructure such as gas pipelines. These are just the latest sign that such systems remain dangerously susceptible to computer attacks that could have devastating consequences; and although the researchers proposed fixes for each flaw they've identified, they caution that, on the whole, industrial infrastructure remains woefully vulnerable. The vulnerabilities add to a growing list of problems identified due to a recent surge in research into the security of industrial systems. Progress to fix such security issues has been slow going, due partly to the poor design of existing systems, and partly to a lack of strong incentives to fix the flaws quickly.
