Genetically engineered salmon is one step closer to your unsuspecting plate. First came the farm-raised fish lacking the health benefits of wild-caught fish, and now food culture is taking one more step toward lunacy by creating genetically modified animals in the form of Frankenfish. The FDA will likely approve this untested experiment for human beings [...]
Because the market is swamped with sugar beverages disguised as “vitamin water” and “energy drinks,” milk is no longer the American household staple. Milk consumption has been declining rapidly, and while all sorts of reasons are trotted out, the reality is that people have become educated just enough that they are suspicious of grocery store [...]
I’ve ordered this book that is being released today, and it promises to be a good one: Pandora’s Lunchbox: How Processed Food Took Over the American Meal.

Last week, a small shop in St. Paul received a visit from a banning bureaucrat after some nervous nellie saw the candy cigarettes being sold in the store and proceeded to contact the authorities. A city inspector showed up and ordered the items to be removed from the retail floor, and the shop owner was [...]
In spite of its “natural” ingredients. This is from the web page of Steve Ettlinger, author of Twinkie, Deconstructed, on the strange culture embraced by Americans of not knowing the chemical factory that makes up the “food” they eat. In this fascinating exploration into the curious world of packaged foods, Twinkie, Deconstructed takes us from phosphate mines in [...]
