Great Minds Think Alike

Two of the sources I site the most on FFT, both wrote about understanding nutrition research this week. Check out the post from Jack Norris, here, and Virginia Messina, here. I might have linked to Jack's before because it was posted a little while back, but worth a second looksie.

Another Link for You

We discussed the German E. coli outbreak, see here. Don't forget where E. coli comes from. Plants don't have E. coli without animal poop getting in the picture some how.

Can we all agree that intensive factory farming practices are harmful to everyone involved? Good. Let's abandon the insanity.

Interesting Links for Today's Show

Mark Bittman rounds up some "must read" articles about meat eating. Check out the link here. He is a big proponant of "less meat". While, I love my veg*ns, it is nice to have meat-eaters who espouse being more plant-based. I feel like Mark Bittman "gets it" in a way that Michael Pollan doesn't yet, but they both get people talking and that is important.

As if there weren't enough reasons to not eat fish (mercury, genetic-engineering, by-catch, environmental impact, human working conditions), now fish caught in US is sent to China then back. See link here.
