All about food - Page 4 Empty Zero Waste lifestyle

Message  MurielB le Jeu 12 Sep - 20:20

Since embarking on the Zero Waste lifestyle, my life and that of my family has completely changed... for the better. We not only feel happier, we lead more meaningful lives, based on experiences instead of stuff, and action instead of inaction.  
http://zerowastehome.blogspot.fr/p/about.html
We are always amazed at seeing the quantity of waste we are producing. I have seen Bea Johnson this morning on television and thought that what she was doing was great

In a major victory brought upon by serious activism and public outrage, new legislation changes will shut down the Monsanto Protection Act rider that granted Monsanto protection from legal action and was set to renew on September 30th.

Hi Muriel, hi everyone,

In France we often think Americans don't do anything to counter junk food, GMOs, obesity, etc.
That's true that in the US, people are free to enterprise but when they start, they are efficient.

A combination of subsidies to overproduce corn following World War II, and cheap meat being processed in overcrowded farms—and fed some of this very corn—has cr...eated the perfect storm for bad health. Right now, processed corn is present in at least one-quarter of all food products in a supermarket… In 1990, it was difficult to find a state with a population of obese residents making up over 14% of the citizenry. But just 20 years later, there wasn't a single state in the union with obesity rates that low!

Have you ever heard of SynBio? It's the new name for genetic engineering and it's being developed right now. The plan is to create synthetic versions of engineered ingredients. The advent of synthetic biology raises thorny economic and regulatory issues, such as whether such yeast-made ingredients can be called natural and whether developing countries dependent on these crops will be hurt.

Deadline to stop the FDA from approving GMO salmon

Any day now, the first genetically modified animal ever to enter our food supply, AquaBounty salmon, could be approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

This fish hasn't been proven safe for humans. But the FDA may approve it based on a limited, flawed, and inadequate study — despite the fact that the same study identified elevated allergy-causing potential,1 and elevated levels of the IGF-1 growth hormone, which is linked to colon, prostate and breast cancers.

That’s why we’re joining Senator Jeff Merkley in a last-ditch effort to demand the FDA reject approval of GMO salmon.

Hi everyone,

From TestTube:
Can You Cut The Mold Off Food and Eat It?
You go and pick up the leftover pizza from last week, and you notice part of it is moldy. If you cut off that part, is it safe to eat it? Anthony gets to the bottom of this extremely pressing question, because pizza is obviously extremely important, and the answer may not be as black and white as you'd might think.

Hi Muriel, hi everyone,

This doesn't concern the USA but I find important to point out Russia's freedom while the French have to keep trying to ban GMOs in our country because of Europe.
I discuss this point with Susan and explained to her that in the US, they tend to ignore Washington while in Europe, we need to take all of the 25-56 (?) countries together so that Brussels has got lots of power. ;(

-> Russia will not import GMO products - PM Medvedev
Russia will not import GMO products, the country’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said, adding that the nation has enough space and resources to produce organic food.

Moscow has no reason to encourage the production of genetically modified products or import them into the country, Medvedev told a congress of deputies from rural settlements on Saturday.

Lucky Russians!
