Mother Jones: Could This Baker Solve the Gluten Mystery?

You know, there’s a really great book that shortcuts all of this. The Breads of France. But use a baking stone, use a reliable thermometer in your oven, be sure to monitor your water temps while mixing, and keep records of what you do. I can’t enjoy gluten containing breads; please - enjoy them for me.

SciAm: “Gluten Sensitivity” May Be a Misnomer for Illnesses to Various Wheat Proteins.

Mine is not celiac; however, my sensitivity requires avoidance of all wheat, barley, etc. products. Total bummer going out to restaurants, I have to tell you. Knowledge among establishments is growing, not fast enough. The derision factor - the fact too many non-sensitives are making a joke of the whole thing - makes it all the more difficult. I’d like the FDA or someone to put a basic set of rules in place before an establishment can advertise GF products. Separate prep surface. Sourcing of GF ingredients. That sort of thing. If you’re going to do it, do it right, so we can trust the wares.

Slate: Coffee in France is terrible - Why can’t the French brew a good cup of coffee?

If you think Paris is the capital of farm to table, think again. In fact, in a recent survey, one-third of French restaurants acknowledged serving frozen products that they had simply reheated.Quelle disaster!

Giz: Why a Small Pennsylvania Town Is the Mushroom Capital of the World.

If you’ve never been, go. Find a place that serves mushroom soup. It’s a religious experience. And DO NOT MISS Longwood Gardens. Or Winterthur. You’ll be treading paths well-worn in my childhood.

Asahi Shimbun: Fish with very high levels of cesium found near Fukushima.

Concern, but not worry. Bream are an estuary/shore fish, I believe. Not an oceanwide roamer. Question is, how did this high exposure happen? Rather than trace the fish (doubtful efficacy), more exploratory fishing needs to be done to pinpoint the source. IMHO.

The Atlantic: Where Does Obesity Come From?

Hey, troll the aisles of Wal-Mart, Sams Club and other big-box food-stocking outfits. See what’s in folks’ shopping carts. The cheapest food is the highest in fat, carbs, sugar. Noone wants to go hungry. And in America, pills are supposed to fix everything. Even the fallout from eating low-quality food. Altering diet, as opposed to prescribing pills, still has the stigma of witchcraft among some medical circles (Admittedly, likely a Santa Fe perception. Docs here have to fight the new age/crystal healing sects).

Wikipedia: Mutation breeding.

For the GM-concerned. Some of our ‘organic’ foods are developed using mutagenic, teratogenic chemicals and … wait for it … radiation. They are, to quote WikiP, “not prohibited by any nation’s organic standards.” Another information point.

Nature: Study linking GM maize to rat tumours is retracted.

Wow. Now virtually half of the internet’s New Age/health segment is due for collapse. The type of rat this study used, the Sprague-Dawley rat, has been known to have significant spontaneous tumor issues since 1973. Their use for any long-term study guarantees invalidity. Given the date, one can’t argue a pro-GM conspiracy.
