“Our Heavenly Father created this beautiful earth, with all its abundance, for our benefit and use. His purpose is to provide for our needs as we walk in faith and obedience. He has lovingly commanded us to ‘prepare every needful thing’ (see D&C 109:8 ) so that, should adversity come, we may care for ourselves and our neighbors and support bishops as they care for others. “We encourage members worldwide to prepare for adversity in life by having a basic supply of food and water and some money in savings. “We ask that you be wise as you store food and water and build your savings. Do not go to extremes; it is not prudent, for example, to go into debt to establish your food storage all at once.
Richardson reports: "The fate of the corn crop on Midwestern farms even has comedian Stephen Colbert worried. Agricultural economist Bruce Babcock appeared on his show, warning him that the prices of meat, dairy and eggs will increase because 'American livestock are fed a corn-heavy diet.' As Colbert put it, 'It is one thing for global warming to make sea levels rise, but nobody told me it would make my cheese levels recede.'"
August 04, 2012 | By Monica Eng, Chicago Tribune reporter (George Thompson, Chicago Tribune) As the Midwest crunches into sweet corn season, a new type will be appearing on grocery store shelves — even though shoppers have no way to recognize it. It's genetically modified sweet corn from the biotech giant Monsanto, engineered to resist a common herbicide and certain pests. The arrival of the crop's first harvest has alarmed consumer groups and activists who say genetically modified foods may pose environmental and health risks.
November 1, 2010 by Linda So yummy! If you want a change of pace that’s meat-free, yet full of protein, fiber, and very filling…this might be for you. I like it with Tzatziki on top (my recipe is in this post), or a little “fry sauce” (what some drive-ins call that wonderful mayo/ketchup combo), and with a thick slice of tomato, avocado, onion and lettuce, as a burger should be, it’s fab. Don’t be afraid of Quinoa. It cooks just like rice – might even be a little easier!
Obesogens are foreign chemical compounds that disrupt normal development and balance of lipid metabolism , which in some cases, can lead to obesity . [ 1 ] [ 2 ] [ 3 ] Obesogens may be functionally defined as chemicals that inappropriately alter lipid homeostasis and fat storage, change metabolic setpoints, disrupt energy balance or modify the regulation of appetite and satiety to promote fat accumulation and obesity . [ 4 ] There are many different proposed mechanisms through which obesogens can interfere with the body's adipose tissue biology.
As part of the study, a group of rats were fed corn which had been genetically modified for pest resistance. (Photo: iStockphoto) Since genetically modified (GM) food started to appear in shops in the early nineties, large quantities have been sold for human consumption – without any harmful effects, as far as we know. But is there a risk of a long-term impact?
It may not be as simple as calories in, calories out. New research reveals a far more complex equation for weight gain that places at least some of the blame on organic pollutants. Image: Laborant/ Shutterstock Conventional wisdom says that weight gain or loss is based on the energy balance model of "calories in, calories out," which is often reduced to the simple refrain, "eat less, and exercise more."
