"... 75% of Vegetarians Eventually Return To Eating Meat" 8 y
Why should any government be persuaded into legislating "rights" for personal beliefs that are not in the public's best interest?
”It appears that for the vast majority of vegetarians, abstaining from meat is only a phase rather than a permanent life choice.
According to Psychology Today, roughly 75% of vegetarians eventually return to eating meat with 9 years being the average length of time of abstinence.
The most common reason former vegetarians cited as the reason they returned to meat was declining health. ...”

Trans Fatty Acids In Processed Foods & Insulin Resistance 8 y
"Treating Diabetes: Practical Advice for Combating a Modern Epidemic" by Thomas Cowan, MD
”Unless eaten to great excess, fats do not contribute to diabetes--with one exception. Trans fatty acids in partially hydrogenated vegetable oils can cause insulin resistance. When these man-made fats get built into the cell membrane, they interfere with the insulin receptors. In theory, this means that one could develop insulin resistance without eating lots of carbohydrates. But in practice, partially hydrogenated vegetable oils are always used in the very high-carbohydrate foods--french fries, cookies, crackers, donuts and margarine on bread or potatoes--that flood the bloodstream with ... read more

FDA & The Pentagon? 8 y
Researching the claim that the FDA comes under the Pentagon rather than the "Department of Agriculture".
Just emailed the American Public Health Association. This is what I wrote:
Your paper appears to be a leading source of news regarding public health for the nation. The February issue features a cover story regarding the FDA. A most recent radio program mentioned a direct relationship between the FDA and the Pentagon. What exactly is that relationship?”
The radio program I refer to is the most recent broadcast of the ”Food Rights Hour” that was aired yesterday. The host said the ”FDA is under the Pentagon”. He said they had looked into this. I called the show, first ve ... read more

The Need To Support/Recover the "Sense of Taste" in Children 8 y
Insights Into Diet and Health By: J Graf
”The sense of taste, in its higher, more refined state, is capable of discerning what the body most needs at any given time. However, when blunted or debased, it discerns not what is wholesome in a given moment, but what is tasty, or even what will feed a health-undermining craving.”
How can we support/preserve the ”sense of taste” in children so that they can have the discernment they need?
Health and karma can both be high prices to pay for what appears to be cheap foods of commerce. read more

"Tilapia Has Both Nutritional And Environmental Drawbacks." 8 y
The flip side of Tilapia, "... the Perfect Factory Fish"
By Elisabeth Rosenthal
The Weston A. Price Foundation has consistently given a big ”thumbs down” on farmed fish and seafood. The problems with farmed fish will now become more well known through articles like the following one published in the NY Times.
”Farmed” Tilapia is included in some hydroponic operations that have claimed the ”Organic” label. For this and additional reasons it is now vital to preserve the original standards of Organic labeling by requiring hydroponic operations to have their own label so those products can be most distinguishable from traditional soil-based ”Organic Agricult ... read more

As we approach the second decade of the 21st century, it is becoming abundantly clear that an entirely new vision, understanding and implementation is required in order for agriculture to truly serve its original purpose of feeding humanity (all peoples) w ... read more
Artistic Entrepreneurship For Children In Support Of Sustainable Food Systems! 8 y
A potential vision for school teachers to fully engage their student's interests and inspire them about "real foods".
Previous Page, Page 9
I imagine that there are many school children who could be completely inspired by this! The idea is for children to experience a learn-by-doing approach to an artistic entrepreneurship that can support sustainable food systems.
The art begins by first searching back to the ”farm foods” that our great grandparents grew up with. One way is through reproducing the images found in magazine advertisements that celebrated real foods many years before all the anti-fat scare of the late 50’s and 60’s; that advocated replacing butter and other traditional animal fats with hydrogenated oils!
