Meat America by Dominic Episcopo At a time when America is searching to define its values and trying to uncover the inspiration of what it means to be uniquely 'American', we need a manifesto! And it would make sense that it should be carved out of meat. I have spent almost three years attuned to America’s spirit, humor and verve. I conceptualized raw images capturing the same, shot them for posterity and incorporated them into a book for publishing. Meat America, the book, is ready for prime time. PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-009781-15 Selection and reproduction of organic chicken In principle, organic meat should come from organically reared animals. However, no organic selection and reproduction system currently exists in Europe for egg production and brooding of day-old chicks. By derogation, it is nevertheless possible to purchase conventional chicks under three days old. Whether or not slower grown, they will be slaughtered at an age of no less than 81 days and under the conditions set out in Regulation No 834/2007. The Commission is reviewing the regulation governing organic farming in the European Union. Producers have some concerns about the potential end to the possibility of using animals produced by non-organic means at the selection and reproduction stage.
"Fast Food’s “Ethnic Insights”" by Andrew Billo Exit from comment view mode. Click to hide this space NEW YORK – There is no denying the fast-food industry’s contribution to America’s obesity epidemic. Now, Asians and Asian-Americans could follow on this path, as major fast-food chains like McDonald’s target them disproportionately.

As a result, the strategies employed by McDonald’s and other brands could affect the health of immigrants and minority groups more than that of other segments of the US population.

Against the Grain: Biotechnology and the Corporate Takeover of Your Food - Marc Lappé & Britt Bailey Against the Grain is the ideal companion to Mae-Wan Ho's Genetic Engineering. Whereas Genetic Engineering concentrates on the science with little on the politics and the regulatory process, Against the Grain concentrates on Big Business, the social, political impact almost to the exclusion of the science and the implied dangers from the reliance upon flawed science. The focus is on large corporations, in particular Monsanto, and their attempts to control agriculture and the food chain. In the introduction the authors show several maps of the world, large areas are blacked out to illustrate Monsanto's global dominance in various genetically modified crops. By the year 2000, Monsanto expect to have 100% of the US soya crop with their Roundup Ready (ie tolerant of the Monsanto herbicide Roundup) soya.
'Organic' from China exposed: The shocking truth about 'organic' foods grown in the world's worst environmental cesspool (NaturalNews) When it comes to foods, superfoods and even nutritional supplements from China, "organic" is largely a hoax. This is my opinion, of course, but I've been researching the issue quite extensively as the key decision maker for new products in the Natural News Store.
