CODEX ALIMENTARIUS Food Innovation Australia Ltd ActionBioscience - promoting bioscience literacy February 2001 Human somatic cell nuclear transfer, otherwise known (somewhat inaccurately) as creating an embryo by “cloning,” involves1: What rights would a child born as a genetic copy of another have? A clone’s DNA is exactly the same as that of the original organism. The starvation and subsequent implantation of DNA from specialized, non-sexual cells of one organism (e.g., cells specialized to make that organism’s hair or milk) into an egg whose DNA nucleus has been removed.The resulting egg and nucleus are shocked or chemically treated so that the egg begins to behave as though fertilization has occurred, resulting in the beginning of embryonic development of a second organism containing the entire genetic code of the first organism. Human cloning: the most controversial debate of the decade. Mammalian cloning, through this nuclear transfer process, has resulted in the birth of hundreds of organisms to date. Cloning Issues It’s an answer to infertility, claim supporters. Conclusion

Food Safety News - Global Food Safety News & Information : Presented By Marler Clark LLP, PS - Home Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread I’m sorry. I know it’s Monday morning and you probably came here for some pretty pictures of food that you could glance at, and then move on with your day… and here I go thrusting warm, soft cinnamon sugar bread in your face. It’s not fair. I know it’s not fair. I know that now you’re craving cinnamon rolls, and cream cheese frosting and chili fries and hot dogs. I am too… and I already ate half of this warm bread. You don’t deserve this sort of torture. This bread hits all the comfort spots in my soul. I’m sorry and you’re welcome and I love you. Let’s start at the beginning. I did this all without the use of a stand mixer and dough hook. This dough can be made and left to rise , then refrigerated overnight for use in the morning. This is the dough just before it’s left to rise. After the dough has rested and risen for an hour, I knead it in a few tablespoons of flour. This is the part in the bread process where you can wrap the dough and place it in the fridge to rest overnight.

Malnutrition in Australia Malnutrition is an under-recognised and underdiagnosed healthcare issue in Australia. It can result from poor oral intake, increased nutritional needs as a consequence of disease and or poor absorption, or excess nutrient losses associated with disease. Many contributing factors can increase the risk of developing malnutrition, including: age, mental state, presence of disease, poor food access, reduced mobility or difficulty swallowing, as well as side effects of treatment. Malnutrition results in negative health outcomes. Thus, patients in hospital diagnosed with malnutrition will be at a higher risk of infectious and non-infectious complications, and tend to have longer lengths of stay than well-nourished patients1. Incidence of malnutrition and cost to the healthcare system Surprisingly, malnutrition is not limited to developing countries during times of famine. Australian studies have estimated the additional annual cost to individual hospitals to be between $1.6 and 1.8 million1. 1.

More food, cleaner food—gene technology and plants - Nova An Austrian monk named Mendel was the first to understand the basic principles by which genes are transmitted from parents to offspring. He worked this out in the 1860s by studying garden peas and the patterns of how certain characteristics (like seed and flower colour) were passed on through the generations of pea plants. Many scientists in the early 1900s further advanced our knowledge of gene transmission. Producing better crops Using selective breeding techniques, crop plants and livestock were bred for desired qualities long before people knew anything about the science of genetics. New varieties of plants are always needed. Gene technology provides a new tool Traditional methods of selective breeding have been provided with several new tools including gene technology. Adding genesHow scientists add a gene to an organismStep 1: Identifying a geneTo identify the gene for a particular characteristic from the huge amount of DNA within an organism is a daunting task.

Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) - Types, Causes & Symptoms Other types of cardiovascular disease include heart valve disease and cardiomyopathy. How are cardiovascular diseases linked? Coronary heart disease (angina and heart attack) and stroke may be caused by the same problem – atherosclerosis. In time, your arteries may become so narrow that they cannot deliver enough oxygen-rich blood to your heart. If a piece of the atheroma in your arteries breaks away it may cause a blood clot to form. When a blood clot blocks an artery that carries blood to your brain, it can cut off the blood supply to part of your brain. Find out more about how your heart works Atherosclerosis - your quick guide Atherosclerosis is the condition that causes most heart attacks and strokes. download What increases my risk of cardiovascular disease? A risk factor is something that increases your likelihood of getting a disease. How you deal with stress, the amount of alcohol you drink, as well as the type of job you do may also influence your risk of developing CVD.

Your Genes, Your Choices: Exploring the Issues Raised by Genetic Research Published: 1997 Your Genes, Your Choices describes the Human Genome Project, the science behind it, and the ethical, legal, and social issues that are raised by the project. This book was written as part of the Science + Literacy for Health project of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. AAAS has a strong commitment to science literacy and the public understanding of science. Most people think that science is remote from the work they do, the lives they lead, and the decisions that they make day by day. Science may seem difficult, because scientists often use technical language to talk about abstract ideas. Most people are curious about the way their bodies work (and the ways they sometimes don't work very well).

Food Safety Magazine SANITATION | December 2011/January 2012 By Gary Hugé Today’s food plant pest control programs should be effective, fully documented and automated. Documentation programs are essential to analyze or review any trouble areas, service histories and records of all materials used on the premises. Automation has hit the pest control industry in a big way. Pest control in the future will continue to be technology driven. An effective pest control program will depend on effective technicians. Another concept is to look in unexpected areas. Insect Pests The common housefly is a known carrier of diseases and pathogens, including Listeria and even Salmonella. Flying insect control requires removal of breeding sites, such as the roof puddles mentioned earlier, and food sources. Indoor flying insect control can be achieved with electrocuters, sticky traps or baited flytraps but must be maintained correctly and cleaned periodically. Gary Hugé is vice president of ASI Food Safety Consultants.

Fig Jam and Lime Cordial Department of Health - Nutrients There are 6 essential nutrients that the body needs to function properly. Nutrients are compounds in foods essential to life and health, providing us with energy, the building blocks for repair and growth and substances necessary to regulate chemical processes. There are six major nutrients: Carbohydrates (CHO), Lipids (fats), Proteins, Vitamins, Minerals, Water. Looking at the AGHE, what food groups are the primary sources of each of the following ? Proteins: meat, dairy, legumes, nuts, seafood and eggsCarbohydrates: pasta, rice, cereals, breads, potatoes, milk, fruit, sugarLipids (most commonly called fats): oils, butter, margarine, nuts, seeds, avocados and olives, meat and seafoodVitamins: common vitamins include the water soluble B group vitamins and vitamin C and the fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K
