Friday’s Nibbles

A UK study was published this week saying that organic produce is no more nutritious than conventional produce.  OK, but what about pesticides? The impact on the environment? Supporting small farms? ‘

Marion Nestle’s wise words in response to the above study.

Oprah’s got issues. Do you? The lowdown on the thyroid.

Abuse? Neglect? I think it’s just plain ol’ sad.

In honor of my latest studies in microbiology, here’s an issue that affects us all.

Chilean salmon may sound fancy on a menu, but you may want to know what you’re actually eating before you order it.

Chlorine is for the pool, NOT for your carrots

If this gets you to eat less artificially colored food, then good.

The honeymoon is over…break out the fat pants!

    see if you can find the Tufts studies that found organic produce was higher in certain minerals, vitamins (I’m not remembering which ones off the top of my head) and in the right soil and climate produced higher yield than the industrial grown counterpart. There is certainly data out there to support the “other side” of this issue!
    If you have trouble finding the article/articles…I’ll dig through my stuff.

      Thanks Judy…I’ll take a look! The study certainly seemed a little fishy to me.
