Is That Corn Genetically Altered? Don’t Ask the FDA

Is That Corn Genetically Altered? Don’t Ask the FDA (CNBC.com) Last year $2.4 billion worth of products were sold with a label saying they do not contain ingredients from genetically modified organisms, but the claim wasn't backed by any government regulatory agency.

GreenSpace: Labeling the Modified Foods

GreenSpace: Labeling the Modified Foods (Inquirer GreenSpace Columnist) Ninety percent of the corn, canola, soybeans, and sugar beets grown in the United States today have been fiddled with.

No Turkeys Here November 23, 2011 The New York Times Opinionator There are days when it seems — both in and out of the food world — that Everything Is Going Wrong.

People die from eating melons. The domin...

Good Friday Food Links

Good Friday Food Links (New York Times) Shocking: The F.D.A., citing lack of evidence, declined to ban the chemical bisphenol A (BPA) from food and drink packaging.

Mark Bittman – Live From the Cutting Room Floor

Mark Bittman – Live From the Cutting Room Floor (New York Times) I was a guest on “Up w/Chris Hayes” Saturday, talking, it seemed, about everything: a bit of an ambitious agenda. When I go back, the conversation will continue.
