Glyphosate Accumulates in Roundup Ready GM Soy

A new study in Food Chemistry shows high levels of glyphosate—the active weed-killing chemical in Monsanto's Roundup—are turning up in thousands of nonorganic packaged foods including those labelled 'natural' and in animal feed for livestock like pigs, cows, chickens, and turkeys.

Excessive Sodium and Sugar in Processed Food for Toddlers

Researchers from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) analyzed sodium and sugar levels in 1,074 infant and toddler dinners, snacks, fruits, vegetables, dry cereals, juices and desserts. Not only was the processed food heavily salted and contained too much sugar, it didn’t matter whether the toddler’s meal was organic or otherwise.

What's In Your Meat


Reference: Good Food Gone Bad: Children of the Seed Gods

Today, there is ample evidence to suggest that our commercial grade meat, poultry and fish should be labelled just as much as the chemical cuisine we get in a box, tin or jar. The how behind industrialized meat processing is not only off-putting, its methodology is downright dangerous to human wellbeing.

Sugarjacked

It's really hard to figure out how much sugar you're eating when downing a bowl of breakfast cereal. For starters, serving sizes are usually 30 percent more than what's listed on the box. Another problem is that naturally occurring sugars and the more dangerous added sugars are lumped into one "sugar" category on the nutrition label. And let's not forget that sugar-laced cereals are legally allowed to make healthy-sounding front-of-label claim about whole-grain, fiber, and/or vitamin or mineral content without addressing the toxic levels of sugar in the products.

What's in Your Burger?

If the GMO food additives in 70% of your process food options doesn’t bother you, then try this. In the light of the current massive recall on frozen burgers in Canada, it’s rather timely as Canadians are being advised to avoid more than 135 burger and beef steakette products.

Fungicide Detected in Orange Juice


On January 9, 2012, the U.S Food and Drug Administration announced it will step up testing for a fungicide that has been found in low levels in orange juice. They say they are not concerned about the safety of the juice but will increase testing to make sure the contamination is not a problem. Not a problem? The fungicide they are referencing is carbendazim, classified by Friends of the Earth as one of their ‘filthy four’ pesticides.

Sugar Bombs

“Most parents would never serve dessert for breakfast, but many children’s cereals have just as much sugar or more”.
Jane Houlihan, Senior Vice President,Environmental Working Group

Cereal is often considered a quick, easy and inexpensive breakfast for kids and adults. But a new study from the good folks at the Environmental Working Group, a U.S. based non-profit research and public health advocacy group, reveals that there is enough sugar in the popular brands of breakfast cereal to fuel more than a morning’s worth of tantrums and meltdowns.
