Of Mice and Men 3.11.2011 Global Health and Wellness News - ENN
Mice are often used to test whether substances in food are harmful to humans. This requires that mice and humans metabolize substances in the same way. This may not be perfectly true (after all mice and men are different). The health risk associated with harmful substances in food may therefore be underestimated. Researchers at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health have adopted a mouse type where human enzymes have been inserted to examine whether people may be more sensitive to certain carcinogenic substances from heat-treated foods. They have obtained a better model to assess negative health effects in humans from substances in food using these mice.

Utah’s food stamp participation highest in rural counties 3.11.2011 Salt Lake Tribune
By brooke adams The Salt Lake Tribune Published Nov 3, 2011 12:26PM MDT Debbie Hatt does not hesitate a second when asked why so many people in Carbon County received food stamps last year. “We have a one-horse economy,” said Hatt, executive director of the Southeastern Utah Association of Local Governments. “If you’re not lucky enough to have a government job or work in the mines, the only thing left is a minimum-wage job.” Carbon County, where 14 percent of residents received help buying food in 2010, is not the only rural county in the state where poverty, unempl... ...

The Occupy movement and land reform: A chicken farmer's dream 3.11.2011 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
I'm thinking of the Occupy movement, knowing it's getting on time for me to feed the chickens. I think of making a funny, political tweet to stand as a closure to my day: "About to go Occupy the chicken coop." But, thankfully I refrain and leave myself to contemplate an intersection between the Occupy movement and farming. At first I feel a little guilty that I haven't joined in. I haven't gone to a rally nor re-posted any cool links to great Occupy videos. Heck, I haven't even watched most of them. And this makes me feel a little lousy because I get the movement and do believe in it. I certainly have a nostalgia for the person I was in the past who had always been on the frontlines of mass protest movements. read ...

Maude’s Market: Spreading local food in Monsanto country 3.11.2011 Grist Magazine
by Twilight Greenaway. Maude Bauschard sells local and sustainably produced groceries and runs a weekly community-supported agriculture (CSA) box from a small store she calls Maude’s Market. This wouldn’t sound like much if she were living in a city on one of the coasts, but Bauschard lives in St. Louis, Mo., or what she calls, “the heart of Monsanto country.” Literally: The city is home to the world headquarters of Monsanto, one of the world’s leading producer of both herbicide and genetically engineered (GE) seeds. “So any sort of action—even just using organic feed—anything along those lines,” she says, can feel subversive. Especially lately, as Bauschard says the company has been running a campaign to promote their prominent role in the city . “It’s called STL Grown . They’re advertising that they support change projects and the city itself, and agriculture in the area; and it’s true. They put money into ...
