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.

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.

Here’s what Attorney Hanson had to say:

FDA Deputy Commissioner, Michael Taylor’s Role, In His Words-Audio

Each week on Food Nation Radio Network we play an audio clip at the beginning of the show designed to make us think about what we are eating.

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
