The Connecting Flight Between MH370, EMP’s & Solar Power

This week on The Dougherty Report, we are challenging you to think.

Is there a connection between;  (1) the mysterious disappearance of Malaysian Air Flight MH370, (2) Dire warnings by former VP Dick Cheney and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich that EMP (electromagnetic pulses) could destroy the electrical grid system in this country and cause widespread loss of life, and (3) the plan put forward by former VP Al Gore whose stated goal is to replace the current electrical grid system with solar and wind turbines by 2018?  Is it far-fetched to think this government itself might resort to a scheme to destroy the current electric grid to advance a cause?

Fluoridating Water Is Ridiculous, Outdated And Dangerous – Audio

This week on Food Nation Radio Network we interviewed Professor Joe Cummins, Professor Emeritus at the University of Western Ontario about his paper entitled, Water Not Fit to Drink. This paper was written for the Institute of Science in Society. Professor Cummins has written papers in the past at the behest of the USDA and FDA, among other government organizations in the United States.

Here is what he had to say about fluoride in drinking water along with our comments about it: 

Professor Joe Cummins, professor emeritus of genetics at the University of Western Ontario, is one of the foremost scientists active in the campaign to protect the safety of crops, foods, human health, and the environment. Prior to joining Western in 1972, he taught genetics at Rutgers University and the University of Washington (Seattle) and since 1968 has been involved in a range of environmental issues related to mercury, asbestos, PCBs, pesticides, toxic waste, and genetic engineering. Prof. Cummins is the author of more than 200 scientific and popular articles and has published recently in Nature Biotechnology, The Ecologist, and Biotechnology and Development Review. He lives in London, Ontario, Canada.

Professor Emeritus Don Huber, Purdue University On Why GMOs Are Unsafe – Audio

This week on the Food Nation Radio Network we spoke with Professor Don Huber who has identified an unknown entity in genetically modified corn. Concurrent with that discovery and research, he has found several very serious health effects from consuming GMO plants.

There are currently bills in front of the House and Senate in the Florida Legislature to label these foods, giving consumers the right to know what they are eating. GMOs include soy, corn and sugar beets, although there are several others on the market.

Some citrus farmers in the State of Florida are in support of a new genetically modified orange to combat “greening”, a blight on the citrus crops, instead of using more organic methods. This new orange produces its own insecticide inside the fruit to kill pests.

Here’s our shocking interview with Dr. Huber: 

Dr. Huber is Professor Emeritus of Plant Pathology at Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN. He received B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of Idaho (1957, 1959), a Ph-D from Michigan State University (1963), and is a graduate of the US Army Command & General Staff College and Industrial College of the Armed Forces. He was a Pathologist at the University of Idaho for 8 years before joining the Department of Botany & Plant Pathology at Purdue University in 1971. He does advisory work for the USDA.

Genetically Modified Oranges With A Side Of Frog Genes

In this PDF presentation obtained by Food Nation Radio Network, read about genetically modified oranges. The information speaks for itself. These GM oranges are currently in field trials in the State of Florida to combat a citrus blight called Greening, instead of testing two varieties of citrus that are already resistant to the blight.

There are local resources for organically grown oranges, including Uncle Matt’s (an organic brand) and at stores such as Rollin’ Oats and Whole Foods Market. Some farmer’s markets in the area may carry organic oranges, also. Certified organic produce is not permitted to be genetically modified.

Jury Refuses To Convict Raw Milk Farmer – Audio

Recently, on Food Nation Radio Network we spoke with Attorney Nathan Hanson about his defense of a raw milk farmer in Minnesota which ended in jury nullification.

In other words, although the farmer did not comply with some of the laws regarding raw milk, the jury found the laws so ridiculous in this case, they refused to convict him.

Pink Pineapple Contains “Tasty” Tobacco Gene – Audio

In January, Del Monte received approval to import a GMO to the United States for human consumption. The new pineapple with rose-colored flesh was touted to the USDA as having more lycopene in the edible fruit portion of the plant, while discouraging undesirable flowering and  reproduction of the plant, ensuring better harvests for the grower.

One of the genes used to accomplish this (tobacco) was surprising to Food Nation Radio Network. Tobacco is considered toxic for humans to eat, yet there were no test results or human studies provided in the application letter made to the USDA. The USDA did not request any studies in their approval letter to Del Monte.

Little-Known Facts About What’s In Your Wine – Audio

On Food Nation Radio Network this week, we talked with Katrina Frey of Frey Vineyards about genetically modified yeast and over 100 surprising additives that can be put in wine without your knowledge and without a label.

Here’s what she had to say: 

About Frey Vineyards from their website: We have always been family-owned and operated, and today a third generation helps with the production of fine organic wines in a tradition of sustainability started 30 years ago. Our vineyards and winery are nestled on the slopes of the Redwood Valley A.V.A. (American Viticultural Area) in Mendocino County, California, at the headwaters of the Russian River. All of our wines are made with no added sulfites. Our innovative winemaking techniques compensate for the lack of this synthetic preservative (which can induce headaches, sniffles, and other allergic reactions in some people). The wine is therefore free to reveal its delicate and true flavors. Today, we are pleased that many more wineries and grape growers have become certified organic and Biodynamic®, for the health of our common environment as well as our customers.

Why The National Bill To Label GMOs Is An Insult To Americans-Audio

This week on Food Nation Radio Network we talked about the Genetically Engineered Food Right-To-Know Act and a major issue hidden in the bill that consumers need to know about.

For nearly three months, Elizabeth Dougherty has been digging for information about a provision in the bill that would allow vaccines in the food supply, potentially for human consumption in unlimited quantities. After making several interview requests to the co-sponsors of the bill to discuss this controversial provision on the show, we were contacted by another member of Congress. Here is what happened:

Non GMO Project Bombshell-They Did Not Test Syngenta’s Kumato-Audio

We were asked by a friend and listener of Food Nation Radio Network about a tomato on the market that was developed by Syngenta. Our friend was concerned that it may be a GMO and asked us to investigate.

In our research, we discovered the Kumato was Non GMO Project Verified. That was comforting.

We read the Kumato story about it being developed through traditional methods and that it came from a wild tomato in Spain. Then, we dug deeper and the REAL story began to emerge.

Why The New York Times Is Wrong About GMO Citrus-Audio

Recently, the New York Times did a story about the Great State of Florida to explain the perspective of one large company who wants our oranges to be genetically modified. In fact, Southern Gardens Citrus thinks it is essential they grow GMO citrus.

Here’s how the story was wrong and a how more complete picture could have been given to NYT readers:

Sugarcane Is Sprayed With Glyphosate (RoundUp) To Ripen It-Audio

We’ve told you about genetically modified sugar beets and encouraged folks to eat sugarcane instead. Now, we are concerned about new information we discovered about a process designed to increase the profitability of sugarcane crops. We want to share this information with you.

Thanks to a listener who sent us a tip, we verified some surprising information in an interview with a researcher at the USDA. Sugarcane in Louisiana, Florida and other parts of the world are sprayed with the herbicide glyphosate (the active ingredient in RoundUp) before harvest to speed up the ripening process and increase its sweetness.

Some studies worldwide suggest there is no safe level of glyphosate. Glyphosate was not developed to be ingested by humans.

U.S. Sugar (the same entity developing genetically modified oranges through Southern Gardens Citrus) did not respond to our attempts to contact them to comment on this story.

Canola Oil Was Never Intended To Be Consumed By People

This week on Food Nation Radio Network, we uncovered some information from the EPA that is very disturbing. Listen to the history of Canola Oil. There is more background on our site about the health effects from consuming this machine lubricant.

In our opinion, there is no such thing as organic canola oil under the USDA definition and it should not be labeled as such. Lots of substances are “organic”, but would never receive a USDA organic label. Think about it.

This is the EPA original document (some of this information was redacted in the 1990s, so we are providing you with this one): EPA

How Non GMO Activists Have Mischaracterized TTIP – Audio

This week on Food Nation Radio Network we talked with Professor Peter Fitzgerald from Stetson University College of Law about the European trade agreement and GMOs.

Separate fact from fiction by listening to this: 

Professor Fitzgerald’s bio from the Stetson Law site:

As a specialist in domestic and international commercial law and policy, with an additional interest in animal law, Professor Fitzgerald’s newest book is International Issues in Animal Law. Additionally, he has co-authored four other books and written numerous articles addressing international business transactions and trade relations. He appeared before the congressionally created Judicial Review Commission on Foreign Assets Control, and was invited to provide evidence to both the Swedish Foreign Ministry’s Ad Hoc Working Group on Legal Safeguards and Targeted Sanctions, and to the British House of Lords’ Economic Affairs Committee’s Inquiry into the Impact of Economic Sanctions. Additionally, the U.S. Trade Representative appointed Professor Fitzgerald to the NAFTA Bi-national Chapter 19 Panel Roster, and he served as an arbitral judge on two separate international dispute resolution panels established under the NAFTA agreement.

Professor Fitzgerald has taught at the University of Edinburgh School of Law, and has also taught courses at the George Washington University Law School in Washington D.C.; the Scandinavian/Baltic Institute on Emerging Markets and Transitional Democracies summer program in Tallinn, Estonia; and the Innsbruck Institute on World Legal Problems summer program in Austria. Additionally, he has lectured at Cambridge University’s Centre for Animal Welfare and Anthrozoology in the Department of Veterinary Medicine, as well as at the Scottish Agricultural College.

Whole Foods Market Talks Seafood Safety – Audio

From the Food Nation Radio News Desk Staff

Doctors tell us that a dietary increase in seafood while cutting back on consumption of red meat is a great way to stay healthy. Recently on Food Nation Radio Network, we spoke with David Ventura, the Seafood Coordinator for Florida Whole Foods Markets about what his company is doing to educate consumers and protect the sustainability and integrity of the seafood supply.  You’ll also be surprised to learn of all the testing that is still being done on seafood coming from the Gulf of Mexico in the wake of the BP oil spill.

Can a Small Group of Moms Make a Difference?

From the Food Nation Radio News Desk:

Recently on the Food Nation Radio Network, we shared a story about Moms for Labeling; a group of concerned Seattle mothers who want to see genetically modified foods labeled properly.  After their small non-profit organization filed a lawsuit against the Grocery Manufacturers’ Association claiming that the GMA is acting as a Political Action Committee in its support of the “I 522″ ballot initiative, the GMA sued them.

Moms for Labeling alleged that the GMA was acting improperly by not identifying member companies who have donated money for political initiatives as required by Washington state law.

The GMA fought back against Moms for Labeling, using the financial might of some of the biggest companies in the world to file a countersuit against this small group of moms.

Elizabeth Dougherty spoke about the case with Karen Andonian of Moms for Labeling and her attorney Knoll Lowney.

CLICK HERE to listen to our original interview and our comments.

UPDATE ON THIS CASE:
Last Friday, Thurston County Judge handed down his decision and ruled in favor of the GMA.  Almost immediately, the GMA claimed victory over Moms, but in reading Judge Chris Wickham’s decision, the judge made it clear that his decision was based on a technicality and the calendar.

Judge Wickham ruled that Moms for Labeling, a newly formed organization, had violated state filing procedures by not waiting the required 55 days after giving notice of an action to sue.

Judge Wickham also wrote:  “So I will find that plaintiff is unable to show by clear and convincing evidence that they have a probability of prevailing on the claim — not that there isn’t merit in the underlying claim — but that they can’t get by the time limit and notice provision of the statute.”

In addition to having their lawsuit dismissed, Wickham issued Moms for Labeling a fine of $10,000 plus attorneys’ fees.

THE LATEST:
The case of Moms for Labeling in Washington State has taken several big steps forward over the past two weeks.

Moms saw their original complaint against the Grocery Manufacturers thrown out on a technicality.  The Attorney General of Washington took up the cause and brought his own action against the GMA.  In a surprising move, the GMA released the names and contributions as Moms had originally asked for.  Now, with days before the election, Moms have filed suit once again, this time against No on 522, the organization working to prevent labeling of GMOs.

This week on Food Nation Radio we spoke to Knoll Lowney, attorney for Moms for Labeling about this case.

CLICK HERE to listen.

Just as happened in California, political advertisements from those opposed to labeling efforts are swaying undecided voters in Washington, and polls show a very close race.  Food Nation Radio Network urges a YES vote on “I 522″ and we will provide updates.

Kennedy, the author compares the conspiracy theories surrounding JFK’s death with the controversies associated with genetically modified foods.

NY & Colorado Poised to Label GMOs – Audio

From the Food Nation Radio News Desk

For the past 18 months, Food Nation Radio has followed the efforts to label genetically modified foods in Washington State.  While the ballots have been counted and the results were not what we had hoped for, in our opinion the final outcome of I-522 is still unknown.  An activist group known as Moms For Labeling helped raise awareness of the actions of the Grocery Manufacturers Association that were alleged to be unlawful. The Attorney General may yet take action against the GMA for their illegal campaign contributions that may have influenced I-522 voters.

In the meantime, the battle to label GMOs continues on a state by state basis and two new battleground states are moving to the forefront.  Grass root efforts are underway to inform consumers in both New York and Colorado and volunteers in those states are taking two very different routes.

Elizabeth Dougherty spoke with Stacie Orell of GMO Free New York and Larry Cooper of Right to Know Colorado about their individual state efforts and their very different routes to ensure their residents know what is in the foods they feed their families.

For Justina

Primum non nocere is a Latin phrase that means “first, do no harm.”

The doctors at Boston Children’s Hospital seem to have lost sight of a lesson that is as old as the medical profession itself.

As we transition to The Dougherty Report, we’ve learned of a situation in Boston that is disturbing and should be alarming to every parent.  Ten months ago, a 15- year-old girl was removed from the custody of her parents and is being held at Boston Children’s Hospital.  It’s Christmas Day, and instead of this child being free to enjoy the day with her family, she’s under the constant surveillance of hospital personnel.

Attorney/author Beth Allison Maloney recently appeared on the show to describe how this child was removed from her parents and is now among a group of five children in the same situation at the same hospital over the last eighteen months.

St. Patrick’s Day Myths And Tasty Recipes

St. Patrick’s Day is coming and the Leprechauns are feeling frisky!

A cozy Irish meal, a pint of Guinness (or a nice cabernet for the less brave), and a heavenly dessert will lead you over the rainbow to a romantic Irish evening.
St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated by the Irish (and Irish-for-a-day) all around the world. There is even a St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Moscow. Being Irish-Italian, St. Paddy’s Day is cause for celebration at our house. We never let the day escape without some hearty Irish fare and great conversation. One of the more controversial subjects surrounding this day is about the origin of St. Patrick.
St. Patrick was born of Roman parents who were living in Scotland or Wales during that time period. He was kidnapped and made an Irish slave as a child. His visions and his teachings made him famous throughout Ireland and he is widely credited with ending slavery in that country. Although the shamrock was his trademark, he typically wore blue garb as he witnessed to people in Ireland. The Ulstermen and other groups who opposed St. Patrick and his teachings wore orange in protest. He is also applauded for removing the serpents from the countryside, however many historians say Ireland never had snakes prior to that time period anyway. He is the patron saint of the downtrodden and gave hope to many of the poor and enslaved. It is said he died on March 17th, hence the celebration of his life and accomplishments on that day each year.
With his Roman parents, one might think we would eat Italian food on St. Patrick’s Day, but he lived in Ireland for most of his life. And don’t worry about trying to cook the traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage. That is just what Americans think the Irish eat, but it was more of a British dish. Irish stew, (ballymaloe or stobhach in Gaelic) is as Irish as food can get. Traditionally cooked with inexpensive cuts of mutton, the Irish now have as many recipes for Irish stew as Macy’s has paraders!
The following recipe is one I have used for years to throw together an Irish stew. This delectable dish practically cooks itself as it simmers to mouth-watering tenderness. The meat is so tender, the flavors so succulent, any Irishman will think you spent days preparing it. Put it on some rice, pasta (or egg noodles, as the Irish say) and this is a one-dish meal that is easy to prepare and even easier to clean up. Along with that, try the recipe below for a quick Irish Cheddar Soda Bread. No rising necessary.
For dessert, macerate some fresh berries with a little port and sugar and serve with a dollop of whipped cream. (One needs this lighter dessert after such a hearty meal!) A good cup of joe with a little Bailey’s Irish Cream would end this meal appropriately.
Well, if your Irish eyes are not smiling by now, raise your glass and give your friends this Irish toast:  May the Leprechauns be near you to spread luck along your way, and may all the Irish angels smile upon you St. Patrick’s Day. Have a happy (and safe) St. Patrick’s Day!
Irish Stew
Ingredients
2 1/2 lbs. of lamb stew meat, cut into 2 inch squares
4 carrots, diced to 1/4 inch
4 stalks of celery, diced to 1/4 inch
1 large onion, diced to 1/4 inch
4 ounces of salt pork, also diced to 1/4 inch
1/2 cup of Marsala wine (he was Roman, after all)
28 ounces of beef stock (in the carton)
sea salt and pepper to taste
1 TB organic cornstarch for thickening
1 lb of egg noodles
1 TB butter
Method
In a large pot heated to medium heat, add the salt pork. When it begins to render fat, add the vegetables. Saute until they are tender and the onion is translucent. Remove the vegetables to a bowl (leaving the fat in the pot). Heat the pot up to medium high and add the lamb (don’t overcrowd the pot) to brown it on both sides. This may take two batches. Add vegetables and all meat back to the pot. When it begins to sizzle again, add the Marsala wine, scraping the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon. Add the beef stock, just enough to come about an inch above the meat, and simmer for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Check the stew, and if not sufficiently thick, make a slurry with organic cornstarch and water. With the stew simmering well, add the slurry and stir rapidly to thicken. Add salt and pepper to taste. Boil noodles according to package directions. Drain and mix with butter. Serve stew over the noodles.
Cheddar Irish Soda Bread

Ingredients
3 1/2 cups AP flour
1 tsp of baking soda
1 tsp of sea salt
1/2 cup of Irish cheddar, grated
2 TB butter, softened
1 1/4 cups of buttermilk
(6 sundried tomatoes, chopped, optional)
Method
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet or spray with cooking spray. Sift together dry ingredients. Making a well in the center, add all other ingredients. Stir with a wooden spoon until a dough begins to form. With clean hands, knead the dough for about 5 minutes and shape into a round. Place on baking sheet and cut an “x” into the center about 1/4 inch into the dough. Dust the top with a little flour. Bake until browned 45 – 50 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack. Enjoy with Irish butter!

Julie Taboulie on Lebanese Cooking

Over the past two years, all the digital channels that have popped up on your television have created a huge demand for fresh, original content.

It’s apparent on public television, and Create TV is a perfect example of rich programming with a broad appeal.

One of the rising stars of that channel is a first-generation Lebanese-American chef named Julie Sageer who was given the name “Julie Taboulie” as a child and the name stuck.

Ms. Taboulie joined us on The Dougherty Report recently to talk about her show and the differences between Lebanese cuisine and other foods from the Middle East.

The Dougherty Report Welcomes Chef Nick Stellino



Recently The Dougherty Report spoke to Chef Nick Stellino.

A regular on PBS and Create TV, this Sicilian-born immigrant walked away from a successful career on Wall Street to follow his passion of cooking.

He shares his thoughts on writing, cooking and he works to make sure that the recipes shown on his TV programs are easily accomplished at home with the same results.

He also confronts the issue of modesty, and confesses “I am what I am.”
