1) Tests on rats suggest genetically modified foods pose health hazards

“Pusztai discovered that the rats fed the genetically modified potato were sick with pre-cancerous cell growth in the digestive tract, smaller brain, liver and testicles, with partial atrophy of the liver and a damaged immune system. His findings showed that genetic engineering caused the damage to the rats, not the insecticide itself.”

2) Lipstick chemical alert: Ingredient in hundreds of household products ’causes heart problems’

“They found triclosan, which is in hundreds of household products, can hinder the process by which  muscles, including the heart, receive signals from the brain.”

3) Running a Marathon? Load Up on Fat

“New research suggests carb-loading before a race isn’t the best way to energize.”

4) Is Raw Milk Worth It? The Case of the Single-Udder Butter

“At Stone Barns, Barber serves “single-udder butter”: butter made from the pasteurized milk of a specific cow. (For example: Clover is an alpha-type who goes hard after the best grass; her butter is typically a darker yellow than that of Sunshine, an erratic, moody cow.)”

9) Scientists: Vegetarian cavemen died off, meat-eaters lived on

“French paleontologists and evolutionary scientists announced on August 8 that a vegetarian branch of the human family tree went extinct around 1 million years ago. Our meat-eating ancestors, however, lived on and kept evolving.”

You know, reading about more plans to ‘defat’ our foods makes me want to open a specialty shop called FULL FAT. No foods that have any fat taken out of them would be sold. Pure dairy (cream, milk, cheese), fatty cuts of meat, butter, eggs, offal, suet, chocolate, and heck, why not even some fruits and veggies.

Oh wait, they already do this in other countries … they call them STORES. What is wrong with us?
