Mention ‘Mad Cow’ and watch the British lose it. Note that 1,000 number is a ‘high case’ scenario. Panic never solves anything.

BBC: US animal activist laws ‘may impact globally.’

Bad news. They want us to remain ignorant of their process. Whether it’s filmed or writtein in text, information will be released. Yet the operations may not really care about what you (here in America) think. An interesting article (see the chart, esp.) of the growth of meat consumption in America vs China. Guess where we’re importing tons of meat to?

SciAm: Feeding the World’s Under-Nourished…with Crickets.

Now, a group of students at McGill University, in Montreal, has has a plan to produce edible insects on an industrial scale. The idea is to distribute cricket-producing kits to the world’s slums as a way of improving diets, and giving people more income. Families would eat what they needed, while selling the rest for processing into flour, and other products.” This totally rocks. I’d eat crickets. No gluten intolerance issues, and high protein. Where do I sign up?

NY Times: The Talmud and Other Diet Books.

Modern science corroborates Maimonides: it takes about 20 minutes for the brain to receive messages from the stomach that it has had enough. Satiety can be achieved with less food than one might think, and it requires more time to reach it.” The groaning board wouldn’t be so lethal, if we understood that simple stat.

FT: Horsemeat probe widens after new scare.

Perhaps ‘scare’ is the wrong word. “It said it did not believe this was a food safety issue.” Disgust and mislabelling come to mind. The ‘morality’? Horses are smarter than dogs or cats … but roughly on par with pigs. And we certainly do love our bacon.
