I love corn and potatoes and morning star peas,
and majestic tomatoes, and lettuce if you please.
And new beets are terrific they get my applause,
And cabbage specifically sliced into slaws.
Citrus, apples, bananas, cherries,
figs, honey dew melon,
peaches, plums, grapes and berries,
with these I live well on.

Deuteronomy 8:8. 10
A land of wheat, and barley, and vines,
and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of oil olive, and honey.
When you have eaten and are full, then you shall bless The LORD
your GOD for the good land which He has Given you.

And the wheat and the barley that we had home grown
for the breads and the broths, were precisely sown.
Revelation 3:20
Behold, I Stand at the door, and Knock:
if any man hear My Voice, and open the door, I will Come in to him,
and will Sup with him, and he with Me.

So to GOD we give thanks as we sit down to eat
from the things from the garden for these are our meat.

11/24/06 - "Warnings of Mercury In Fish Insufficient"
Oceana, a Washington, D.C.-based activist group, issued a report this week that concludes fewer than 20 % of the nation's grocery stores are posting in-store warnings about mercury. Mercury is a toxic metal that can cause nerve damage in humans & is particularly dangerous to children, developing fetuses and women of childbearing age. Methylmercury, a form commonly found in fish, is the type most likely to cause health problems. Jackie Savitz, director of Oceana's Campaign to Stop Seafood Contamination, said that while some of the nation's largest grocers are posting FDA recommendations in stores, "many consumers, especially in the Eastern U.S., still are not getting the message." "We hope that soon the remaining companies will recognize how easily they can protect their customers health," she said. The U.S. FDA and the Environmental Protection Agency have focused on ocean fish, recommending that children and women of childbearing age avoid four species: shark, king mackerel, swordfish and tilefish, & limit their consumption of tuna to 6 ounces per week.

11/21/06  "Salmonella Poisoning From Poultry Meat A Hazard"
AP; U. S. Dept of Agriculture; "Emerging Infectious Diseases" journal of the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention/Dec. - Salmonella bacteria sickens at least 40K people & kills about 600 every year in the U.S. Salmonella, commonly found in poultry, is found in many other products, from pork & beef to raw fruits & vegs., & dairy products. A particular strain, Salmonella enteritidis, found in chicken eggs is turning up more often in broiler chicken meat, according to research by the Agric. Dept. Positive tests for it increased fourfold from 2000 through 2005. It causes fever, stomach cramps & diarrhea, & infection can turn deadly by spreading beyond the intestine to the bloodstream. In recent yrs., the salmonella enteritidis strain has been found inside intact, disinfected, grade A eggs. This type of germ contaminates eggs inside a hen's ovaries, before shells are even formed. Cooking poultry to 165 degrees will kill the germ. The govt. also strongly recommends that people use food thermometers & follow basic kitchen rules: washing hands/counters often; keeping raw poultry & meat separate from cooked food; rinse/cook food thoroughly; refrigerate or freeze food immediately.

11/15/06  Study: "Red Meat Increases Risk for Breast Cancer"
Harvard U; Archives of Internal Medicine- A Harvard Medical School epidemiological study assessed the diets of more than 90K pre-menopausal women in their 20s, 30s & 40s over 12 years. Research leader Eunyoung Cho said that this is the first study to find an association between breast cancer and the amount of beef, pork, lamb or processed meat women consume. Researchers found that women who consumed more than 1 serving of red meat per day almost doubled their risk of developing some type of breast cancer. The findings come after years of advertising promoting the health benefits of red meat and telling Australian women, in particular, to eat more iron-rich lamb and beef. "Pre-menopausal women who ate more than 1.5 servings of red meat per day experience almost double the risk of hormone receptor positive breast cancer, compared to those who ate less than three servings of red meat per week," Eunyoung Cho said.  "Great Tasting Meatless Veggie Entrees" Burgers, deli, etc.
9/27/06  "Truth About E. Coli Bacterium -Also Present In Meat, Etc" 
Live Science.com - E. Coli, ( Escherichia coli,) is a bacterium with hundreds of strains, most  relatively harmless in healthy individuals.  E. coli is ubiquitous in the innards of cows & humans and is spread from cow to cow &  from human to human through feces, which is why hand-washing is so important. Cows are cramped into pens, ankle-deep in the manure of hundreds to thousands of cows, where E. coli tends to spread.  Bacteria can splash up on udders & get into milk; or get into intestines and contaminate meat during the slaughtering process; or pass through the cow in manure and ultimately end up on crops directly as fertilizer or indirectly by leaching into the water supply. Most E. coli outbreaks in the United States are caused by a particular virulent and deadly strain called O157:H7.  If you eat beef, you are at risk because most beef is loaded with harmful bacteria, often the bad E. coli, and needs to be cooked.  Vegetarians aren't spared, as evidenced by the spinach E. coli outbreak.  Organic consumers aren't spared; organic spinach can have E. coli.  And raw food advocates are most certainly at risk, because cooking is the best way to kill the bacteria.

8/26/06  "Canada's 7th & 8th Mad Cow Cases Halt U.S. Imports"
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (Reuters) - Canada's 7th mad cow case since 2003 most likely contracted Mad Cow, the brain wasting disease from contaminated feed, said the Can. Food  Insp. Agency; which announced in June that it aimed to eliminate mad cow disease: bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or  BSE, within the next 10 yrs., by banning specific cattle tissues capable of transmitting mad cow disease from all livestock feed & pet food. The 50 month old cow was born yrs. after 1997, when Canada instituted a ban on protein from cattle & other ruminants, such as sheep & goats, in cattle feed. The announcement of the 7th case drew attention from the U.S. govt., which participated in the ensuing investigation, then halted a proposal to allow imports of older Canadian cattle, citing the need to know how the cow was exposed to infected material. On Wednesday, the Canadian food safety agency confirmed an eighth mad cow case in a mature beef cow in Alberta.

8/16/06 Study -"Nitrites In Hot Dogs Linked To Cancer-Possibly Genetic Mutations"
LiveScience.com;  Journal of Agric. & Food Chemistry; U. of Nebraska Medical Center-Omaha - In a new study chemists find hot dogs may contain DNA-mutating compounds that might boost one's risk for cancer. Scientists note there is an up to 240-fold variation in levels of these chemicals across different brands. Researcher Sidney Mirvish, chemist at the U. of Nebraska Med. Cntr. & colleagues examined hot dogs because past research had linked them with colon cancer. Hot dogs are preserved with sodium nitrite, which can help form chemicals known as N-nitroso compounds, most of which cause cancer in lab animals. Extracts from hot dogs bought from the supermarket, when mixed with nitrites, resulted in what appeared to be DNA-mutating compounds. When added to Salmonella bacteria, hot dog extracts treated with nitrites doubled to quadrupled their normal DNA mutation levels. Triggering DNA mutations in the gut might boost the risk for colon cancer, the researchers explained. The possible hazard presented here is not just limited to hot dogs. Salted dried fish and seasonings such as soy sauce may contain similar levels of these chemicals, Mirvish said. Future research is underway. Featured: Try tasty nitrite-free veggie hot dogs


7/11/06  "High Levels of  Mercury Found In Seafood Endangers Health"
WASHINGTON; Defenders of Wildlife; AP- The fed. govt. advises pregnant women, nursing mothers & young children to avoid fish with high levels of mercury in shark, swordfish, king mackerel or tilefish. Many imports of canned tuna have mercury levels higher than the fed. limit, according to analysis by  Defenders of Wildlife-environ. group. They found the highest levels of mercury in tuna from Ecuador and Mexico, known for setting nets where they see dolphins to catch large tuna swimming below. Elevated mercury levels have been linked to learning disabilities & developmental delays in children & to heart, nervous system & kidney damage in adults. Mercury poisoning is accumulative in continued consumption. Traces of mercury are found in nearly all fish and shellfish. Released through industrial pollution, mercury falls & accumulates in streams & oceans as methylmercury that builds up in fish & shellfish as they feed, in some types more than others.

6/27/06  Research- "Pancreatic Cancer Linked To High Red Meat Consumption"
Karolinska Inst. in Stockholm; International Journal of Cancer- 6/1/06; Reuters Health - Swedish researchers report that a diet high in red meat appears to raise the risk of developing pancreatic cancer, one of the most deadly cancers, seldom detected at an early, curable stage. Surgical removal offers the only chance for a cure, but only a small percentage of patients are candidates for this therapy. In many cases, removal is not possible when surgery reveals that the cancer has actually spread outside the pancreas. "Findings from our study," lead investigator Dr. Susanna C. Larsson said, "suggest that high consumption of red meat is associated with an increased risk of pancreatic cancer."

 Journal of Nutrition, Jul/Aug.-06; Reuters- Researchers found that lab mice given a diet full of broccoli, carrots, green beans, corn & peas developed far less artery narrowing than those reared on a veggie-free diet. For humans, the findings offer more support for the advice health experts and mothers have long given: eat your vegetables. Dr. Michael R. Adams of Wake Forest U. School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, NC. said, "The new research, adds to what's known about the health benefits of vegetables by showing that they may thwart the progression of atherosclerosis, a hardening and narrowing of arteries that can lead to heart disease & stroke...The animals also had somewhat lower cholesterol & much lower levels of a protein involved in inflammation, which may help explain the clearer arteries."

AUSTIN, Texas -The natural-foods grocery chain "Whole Foods Market Inc." has decided to stop selling live lobsters  & crabs on the grounds that it's inhumane. The Austin based grocer spent seven months studying the sale of live lobsters from ship to supermarket aisle, trying to determine whether the creatures suffer along the way. Ultimately, Whole Foods management decided to immediately stop selling live lobsters  & soft-shell crabs, saying they could not ensure the creatures are treated with respect  & compassion.

AP;  N.Y. - Last summer, Adam Durand, animal-rights activist, a graphic designer & director of an animal-rights group called Compassionate Consumers, produced a short documentary titled "Wegmans Cruelty" that was screened at a Rochester movie house. The film contained footage of hen corpses lying in cages with live hens, a few that had fallen into deep manure pits or others with their heads apparently caught in wire cages. About 95 % of the nation's eggs are produced at caged chicken egg farms, (cage-free eggs can be purchased, instead) & Durand's group wanted to alert the public to a practice it considers cruel, neglectful and unsanitary/unsafe for consumers. The poultry industry says the system cuts production costs & limits the animals' exposure to diseases. Durand was charged for burglary  & trespassing, & acquitted last week, & convicted of the lesser charge of criminal trespassing, a misdemeanor.

  British Columbia, Canada -In the fifth infected animal  found since the national surveillance program was put in place in 2003, the Canadian govt. has confirmed a new case of mad-cow disease in a 6 yr. old dairy cow on a Fraser Valley farm in British Columbia.  Mad-cow disease is also known as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), a degenerative disease of the central nervous system of cattle. "This finding does not affect the safety of Canadian beef," the agency said Sunday in a written statement.  The program targets cattle most at risk, and since its inception has tested more than 100K animals. In humans, eating infected tissue from cows has been linked to a variant of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, a rare but fatal degenerative disease blamed for the deaths of 150 people in Britain, where there was an outbreak in the 1980s & 1990s.

7/7/05   "Lab Grown Beef -Minus-Cow Proposed"
 Maryland- Scientists have proposed 2 new techniques for growing meat in a lab by a process that could one day make beef cows obsolete. Currently, small amounts of edible fish can be created in the lab. But U. of Maryland doctoral student Jason Matheny says that this process could be adapted on an industrial scale: whole factories producing fish sticks without the fish or chicken nuggets without the real birds. "With a single cell, you could theoretically produce the world's annual meat supply," Matheny says. "And you could do it in a way that's better for the environment and human health. In the long run, this is a very feasible idea." Lab grown meats could be designed to be healthier too. "For one thing, you could control the nutrients," Matheny says. "For example, most meats are high in the fatty acid Omega 6, which can cause high cholesterol & other health problems. With in vitro meat, you could replace that with Omega 3, which is a healthy fat." Cultured meats would reduce the environmental burden that comes from raising livestock. Also, it wouldn't need to be treated with antibiotics and other drugs that are common in the industry.

"Research-"Types" of  Carbs The Issue In Obesity"
Amer. Journal of Epidemiology- U. of MA. Med. School in Worcester's  Dr. Yunsheng Ma explained that "Total amount of carbohydrate is not related to body weight; carbs are not the enemy, ...it's the type of carbs that's important... findings suggesting that low-carb diets, recommending people cut back on all carbs, are missing the mark." Researchers report that overweight people do not appear to eat more carbs overall than people who weigh less. However, they tend to eat more refined carbs, like white bread & pasta, which cause a rapid spike in blood sugar. "In contrast, whole grains, fruits and vegs. have carbs that don't have such high glycemic index", Ma added.
