Local Forage

  • Eating is one of our most primal and sensual acts. And eating what's good for you doesn't mean depriving yourself of gastronomic delight. Local Forage explores why traditional foods—the real, unprocessed, whole-fat foods of our grandparents—delivers the winning combination of maximum health and maximum taste.

    Local Forage provides an exchange of practical information on where to buy these nutrient-dense traditional foods in the bay area, how to prepare them and how to think "beyond organic".

EWG Going to Task for Us Again

Ewg_5 Speaking of Bisphenol-A, I want to say GOD BLESS THE ENVIRONMENTAL WORKING GROUP.

They are calling bullshit on the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences hiring of a consulting firm (Science International) with ties to the industry that manufactures Bisphenol-A, the very chemical that the consulting firm was hired to review the risks of.

Sciences International's federal contract creates a blatant conflict of interest, and the EWG is not going to take it sitting down. -Deep bow of appreciation to EWG-

Read the EWG's letter to the panel and whistle-blower press release.
Read the LA Times Story, Public health agency linked to chemical industry

BTW, the EWG is the same watchdog organization that brings you the Shopper's Guide to Pesticides.
