Researcher Talks About Alternatives To GMO Citrus – Audio

This week on Food Nation Radio Network, we talked with Dr. David Gang from Washington State University about an alternative to modifying our beloved citrus crops.

Here’s what he had to say: 

From Dr. David Gang’s bio page: Plants produce an amazing diversity of small molecular weight compounds. While the chemical structures of close to 50,000 of them have already been elucidated, the total number of such compounds is probably in the hundreds of thousands to millions. Only a small number of these are part of what have been termed “primary” metabolic pathways; the rest of these molecules are called “secondary” metabolites, also known as specialized metabolites or natural products. The vast majority of these compounds are not found in the standard crop plants of the Western world, nor in standard laboratory model plants such as Arabidopsis thaliana and Medicago trunculata. These compounds are, however, believed to play vital roles in the physiology of the plants that produce them, particularly as elements of the plants’ defensive arsenals.

Is There A Connection Between Autism And Our Food? – Audio

 

Dr. Stephanie Seneff, MIT

 

 

Nearly everyone knows a family affected by autism. One might say it’s an epidemic with now 1 in 88 children affected overall and 1 in 54 boys. We know there have been major changes in our food supply including pesticide load and genetically modified foods introduced in the American diet that began in the mid-seventies and really ramped up in the 1990s, continuing today.

We spoke with Dr. Stephanie Seneff from MIT about the connection between rates of autism and what is in our food supply.

Here’s what she had to say:  A Connection Between Autism And GMO Foods? Click To Listen

Dr. Seneff’s bio from her site: Stephanie Seneff is a Senior Research Scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. She received the B.S. degree in Biophysics in 1968, the M.S. and E.E. degrees in Electrical Engineering in 1980, and the Ph.D degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in 1985, all from MIT. For over three decades, her research interests have always been at the intersection of biology and computation – developing a computational model for the human auditory system, understanding human language so as to develop algorithms and systems for human computer interactions, as well as applying natural language processing (NLP) techniques to gene predictions. She has published over 170 refereed articles on these subjects, and has been invited to give keynote speeches at several international conferences. She has also supervised numerous Master’s and PhD theses at MIT. In 2012, Dr. Seneff was elected Fellow of the International Speech and Communication Association (ISCA).

In recent years, Dr. Seneff has focused her research interests back towards biology. She is concentrating mainly on the relationship between nutrition and health. Since 2011, she has written 10 papers (7 as first author) in various medical and health-related journals on topics such as modern day diseases (e.g., Alzheimer, autism, cardiovascular diseases), analysis and search of databases of drug side effects using NLP techniques, and the impact of nutritional deficiencies and environmental toxins on human health.

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.
