Vox: Watch the rapid evolution of the American diet over 40 years, in one GIF.

I look at these, and become surprised that none have been correlated against disease (‘the reduction in whole milk perfectly tracks the rise in autism!’ etc.). Correlation, causation, and the whole internet amateur-research phenom ... then again, wait five minutes and check Twitter.

NY Times: I Run a G.M.O. Company — and I Support G.M.O. Labeling.

Foods with bioengineered ingredients are safe, but shrouding them in secrecy breeds doubt and fear. Clear, informative labeling is a first step toward transparency that can build trust and educate consumers. But trust has to go both ways: Biotechnology companies and food producers must trust consumers to educate themselves and make informed decisions.

Guardian.UK: Glyphosate unlikely to pose risk to humans, UN/WHO study says.

Playing games. Move those goal posts. Cancer isn’t the major concern; the detrimental effect on gut bacteria is. Many medical studies to back up even small amounts having great effects on the gut. This is not anti-GMO; this is overuse of pesticide. They’re using this stuff to dry out wheat crops for easier harvesting. By the millions of gallons. You’re getting more than you realize.

nakedcap: Preparing to Collapse in Place with Permaculture.

The way to avoid the rush is simple enough: figure out how you will be able to live after the next wave of crisis hits, and to the extent that you can, start living that way now.” Not really a source I’d go to for permaculture advice, but interesting nonetheless.

AuthorityNutrition: Are Oats and Oatmeal Gluten-Free?

They are, but cross-contamination is a huge problem. I eat oats only when I know I can ‘take a chance’ with my health.

I’ll take the opportunity to interject another interesting cross-contamination source. Coffee. I bought some mass market coldbrew coffee, and had some problems. I chalked it up to acidity (even though cold brew is supposed to be lower), kept drinking, and had worse problems. Doing research (I’m SO sick of researching things) ... coffee in America is of course not subject to cross-contamination in general. It’s the source countries. They use the same trucks for the coffee harvest that they use for hauling wheat and other grains. So some, especially cheaper coffees, can be significantly contaminated.

Unfortunately, everyone changes their sourcing all the time. I stick with one brand until symptoms start, and then start gently trialing others.

Celiac/gluten issues blow the big one. I hate it.

TBTimes: At Tampa Bay farm-to-table restaurants, you’re being fed fiction.

Hmmm. I wonder about other ‘local source’ restaurants around the US. Santa Fe, we’ve had our share of pretentious hokum over the years. A local newspaper should do an in-depth story.

UPI: Study links Splenda to higher risk of leukemia.

Knew there’d be issues. Even having a piece of gum with Splenda sends me to the bathroom. Those I know who have imbibed for a long period - now that I read the article and make a correlation (which is not causation, but interesting nonetheless) - I realize they’re largely all dead of various cancers.

Grab some aurochs steak – or whatever is on the menu – with one hand. Grip it between your teeth and, with your other hand, use a small flint blade to slice off a manageable bite size. But watch out because those flint tools are sharp and if you’re not careful, you could chip or graze your own choppers.
