Defeating the Violence in Our Food and Medicine

Good physical health requires high quality air, food and (unfluoridated) water, correct posture and movement patterns, and regular exercise.

(TASMANIA, Aust.) - Frankenapple Critiques of the mainstream (allopathic) medical industry have long drawn attention to its death-dealing: See, for example, 'Medical Nemesis: The Expropriation of Health' and 'When Doctors Strike, Fewer People Die'.

In fact, according to one heavily-researched report, 'It is evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the United States', far surpassing heart disease, cancer and shootings...

Food & Water Watch: Now they`re engineering our apples!

Even major food companies like Gerber and McDonald's, have already said that they won't use the GE apple. We need to show the USDA that the public — that's you — overwhelmingly opposes this freakish fruit.

(WASHINGTON, DC) - GMO Apples You've seen the stories, maybe on the Internet, maybe on your local news. It's a gross curiosity: someone shows off junk food that they claim they've had for 40 years, but it looks like it was made yesterday.

These stories give us all the creeps, because it's just not natural for food not to decay. You should feel the same way about genetically engineered (GE) apples — these "Arctic" apples won't turn brown when you cut them up!

India: Sick from Distorted Development

The inequities in health care provision represent the extreme levels of inequality and social injustice pervading the country, as the Lancet makes clear, “mainly because of insufficient government funding for health”.

(LONDON) - India's sick India has recorded two decades of around 9 per cent growth, which has produced umpteen rupee billionaires who live in decadent luxury in the cities.

Along with the government, which is seduced by all things corporate, they turn a comfortable blind eye to the hundreds of millions living in rural poverty and those in slums on the other side of town, where children play beside open sewage, where there are no functioning toilets or latrines, where child malnutrition is rife and where there are no health care facilities worthy of the name.

Israel Found Guilty of War Crimes by Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission

"The Tribunal deplores the failure of international institutions to punish the State of Israel for its crimes and its total lack of respect of International Law and the institutions of the United Nations."

(KUALA LAMPUR) - A defiant former Israeli general, Amos Yaron A new age is dawning on the state of Israel, which for years has relied on U.S. "Super Veto" power in the United Nations to block Israel from being charged with war crimes.

Those days will soon fall into the background, as the Kuala Lampur War Crimes Tribunal "Guilty" verdict has been registered in world court against Israel. Charged with a long list of deadly violations, Israel is reacting with threats toward the Palestinian population and military posturing.

Aging & Eating in Good Taste

Many retirement homes make extra efforts to serve up yummy treats. For those with disabilities and less energy, mealtime is often an important time to socialize.

(SALEM) - Healthy eating at an older age All of us have eaten countless meals in order to survive to becoming senior citizens. The lure of delicious food has satisfied our taste buds over the years. However, we must adjust to changing times.

Just as our vision often gets dimmer and our capacity for hearing decreases with age, our tongues also get older with wear and tear. It is normal to retreat to the memories of an earlier era. The reality is that we older folks simply do not register taste as we used to. Our taste buds are not quite as sharp.

Breakfast in Restaurants and Cafés of Tehran

A sampling of Tehran's best breakfast options...

(TEHRAN) - Iranian food Most people, who have to wake up early in the morning all through the week to go to work, will probably prefer to get out of bed later on Friday mornings [which is the official holiday in Iran].

They may also want to have their breakfast, say, at 11:00 a.m., and dine on a single meal as their lunch and supper, or at least, suffice to a light lunch. Having breakfast with one’s family is one of those blessings of which most of us are deprived as a result of the new urban lifestyle that we have adopted since we began to live in the cities.
