How About a Double Scoop of Mama's Milk?

These kids are enjoying ordinary treats from Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream, but the Virginia-based nonprofit group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)wants the famous company to consider using human breast milk instead of cow's milk in their products. Yes you've read right, PETA wants world-famous Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream to tap nursing moms, rather than cows, for the milk used in its ice cream.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is asking the ice cream maker to begin using breast milk in its products instead of cow's milk, saying it would reduce the suffering of cows and calves and give ice cream lovers a healthier product. The idea got a cool reception Thursday from Ben & Jerry's officials, the company's customers and even La Leche League International, the world's oldest breast-feeding support organization, which promotes the practice — for babies, anyway.

PETA wrote a letter to company founders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield on Tuesday, telling them cow's milk is hazardous and that milking them is cruel. "If Ben and Jerry's replaced the cow's milk in its ice cream with breast milk, your customers — and cows — would reap the benefits," wrote Tracy Reiman, executive vice president of the animal rights advocacy group. She said dairy products have been linked to juvenile diabetes, allergies and obesity. As a standardized product under federal regulations, ice cream must be made with milk from healthy cows. Ice cream made from goat's milk, for example, would have to be labeled as such. Presumably, so would mother's milk ice cream.

To Ben & Jerry's, the idea is udderly ridiculous. "We applaud PETA's novel approach to bringing attention to an issue, but we believe a mother's milk is best used for her child," spokesman Sean Greenwood said in an e-mail.

Leon Berthiaume, general manager of the St. Albans Cooperative Creamery, which provides milk products to Ben & Jerry's, called the dairy products "among the safest in the world." "Milk from cows has long-term health benefits and has been proven to be safe and healthy and an important part of the American diet for generations," he said. "I'm not ready to make that change."

Vitamin Water: coming near you

We all know that our first love of powering up is Gatorade. Gatorade has made a breakthrough to many athletes. It gives you some boost without actually drinking an energy drink such as "Monster" or "Rockstar" There has been a new and improved breakthrough that swept out Gatorade. You might of seen these commercials from this new competition. Naomi Campbell is like the "Cover girl" to this product. It's called Vitamin Water. Who would have thought that 50 cent would be a partial owner to Vitamin Water. Unlike Gatorade, Vitamin Water has much more variety when it comes to flavors. They know that people like to have a lot of choices and they knew that Gatorade clearly didn't have as much choices as they did. They have Charge, XXX, Formula 50, Defense, Vital-t, Endurance Peach Mango, and much much more. They all do something different with your body for example the Charge:

Glaceau’s B vitamin and electrolyte drink, Charge has a lemon lime flavor that drinks very much like a sports drink. Still, the product gets the job done and it does drink more smoothly and cleanly than Gatorade. Overall, it’s a good product, but it’s honestly somewhat hard to get excited about it – nothing terribly innovative as far as the brand goes.

Salmonella Scare Hits Dog Food

Lately, there have been plenty of scares that have to deal with salmonella in our tomatoes and jalapenos. But now its taken its wrath into a new target, dog food. With very popular brand at risk like one of the top selling dog dog foods out there, Pedigree, everyone is on edge. Mars Petcare US announced a voluntary recall Friday of all dry pet food products produced at its plant in Everson, Pa. between Feb. 18 and July 29, citing potential contamination with salmonella. Mars, in a news release, did not say how much pet food is involved, but said the recall reaches 31 states and various brands and said the action was taken as a precaution. "Even though no direct link between products produced at the Everson plant and human or pet illness has been made, we are taking this precautionary action to protect pets and their owners," the company statement said.
Mars said it stopped production at the plant July 29 when it was alerted of a possible link between dry pet food produced in Everson and two isolated cases of people infected with salmonella. Mars said salmonella can cause serious infections in dogs and cats and, if there is cross contamination caused by handling of the pet food, in humans also.

Lab manufactured meat might make its way to markets

Recently, I read an article regarding the Food and Drug Administration's regulation proposals for genetically engineered meat. Such meat is not yet available in the markets, but the FDA's actions might signal a move toward that direction. In a recent USA Today story, it was reported that such kinds of meat are beneficial it can lead to the production of new drugs,"serve as models for human disease; produce industrial or consumer products, such as fiber; or have improved food-use qualities, such as being more nutritious." The fact that manufacturers can alter the genetic makeup of meat make it much easier to formulate it to human needs. Of course, there are ethical implications to genetic meat, but I think this should not hinder us from putting them into the market. I believe that philosophical ideologies, especially the religious ones, should not be used to block scientific progress. Genetic meat offers humans a viable alternative food source, that could actually be formulated exactly according to their needs. In the same vein, the Food and Drug Administration should loosen up its regulations and allow market mechanisms, instead of the bureaucracy, to judge whether genetically engineered meat is actually a boon or bane to people.



Lay off the salt

Salty foods would have to take a backseat for those with resistant high blood pressure. This term is used to define anyone who continues to have high-blood pressures even after taking three medications to try lowering it (Reinberg 2008). A person is also considered to have resistant high blood pressure if it takes more than three medicines to decrease its level. Associated Press reported a study in which people with such illness were put into a research project. The study aimed to find out whether the amount of salt in a diet would help quell resistant high-blood pressure. The answer was a yes. Those who were given low-salt diets ended up having a more normal blood pressure than those who were placed under a high-salt diet. The results are probably not too counter-intuitive, but it does provide one more anecdotal advice for those dealing with high blood pressure. I advice, however, that people take this study with a grain of salt (pun intended), because only 13 patients were tested in this research. The sample could possibly be too small to actually be representative of the whole population of people suffering from high-blood pressure.

Hyaluronic Acid Serum will make you GLOW

This kind of serum will help make all the worried women with worried lines on their forehead go buy. We all know that young skin has characteristics of it being smooth and elastic and it contains a lot of Hyaluronic Acid. I think this is a very healthy way to capture a look that anyone would be satisfied with. Not only will your skin look better, but your skin will rejuvenate and restore your skin with a youthful glow. I think this is very eco-friendly just because this product is made with 100% pure, non-animal based bio-identical hyaluronic acid.

Topical HA can help by increasing endogenous HA in the dermis and by attracting a water layer on top of the skin surface to protect against water loss. Bio-identical HA, topically applied, can buffer the decreased production of HA that occurs with age. Topical HA can serve as a hydrating agent, rejuvenating skin and improving the tone and appearance by enhancing the skin’s ability to retain moisture. Applying a special HA serum that has a light, non-oily texture, can soothe skin, smooth fine lines and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

New food peril arises in China

A growing public outcry is occurring now in China as a number of children have been getting sick from a milk powder called Bei Bei, a product manufactured by a large Chinese company called Sanlu. Data showed that one baby has died and that 50 more have "developed kidney stones". Melamine was indicated as the poisonous chemical in the milk powder. It is usually "used to make plastic and tan leather", but it could also be used to misrepresent protein content in a certain mixture. The Food and Drug Administration said that Bei Bei is currently not in U.S. stores, but could be sold in "ethnic markets". Chinese officials vowed to crackdown on the culprits.

Cases like these are bothering for free market advocates like myself. It is stories like these that drive people to accept the false notion that unfettered markets are ultimately ineffective and harmful to people and that government intervention is the solution.

First of all, I do agree that the government should have a role in the market. The problem is that these days, when people say they want "government regulation", they mean that the government should come up with one-seize fits all measures on how to run a business. These measures, I believe, are ineffective and even counterproductive. I believe that government should be reactionary, one that emphasizes restitution over regulation. I believe that restitution is a great deterrent against unscrupulous entrepreneurs without harming those who are actually honest. Devious companies such as Sanlu should not be allowed to get away with their misdeeds and must be taught a lesson by levying heavy fines against it and providing for the medical treatment of the children it has harmed with its product.

Vitamins, family style: What to take when

Just because you take various amounts of vitamins or even a multi supplement, does not mean that it is good for you. One size does not fit all. You make need a supplement that maybe your husband or child should avoid.

For your Pre-Teen or your Teen, they need calcium and lots of it. "You get one chance in your lifetime to build a strong skeleton — and that time is adolescence," says Roberta Anding, RD, a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association. But kids typically get far less than the daily 1,300 mg of calcium they need. Teens should try this: "Teens often skip milk in favor of soda and juice, so limit sugary drinks to one a day," says Malena Perdomo, RD. Serve milk at every meal or stock up on calcium-rich snacks like low-fat yogurt or string cheese. What else do they need? How about Iron. Iron is an essential nutrient. Kids with a deficiency are 2 ½ times more likely to have low math scores. Girls, who lose iron during their periods, need 15 mg daily; boys need 11 mg. Teens should try this: Give your teen a morning boost with fortified breakfast cereals; most pack 4 to 8 mg of iron per serving. To help absorption, pair high-iron foods with ones rich in vitamin C, such as black beans (a great vegetarian source of the mineral) and bell peppers.

So what should you parents take? How about Vitamin D. Increasing numbers of studies suggest that it can reduce your risk of several cancers by 30 to 50% and lower your risk of death from any cause. Yet up to 74% of Americans don't have optimal blood levels of the vitamin. Food Or Supplements? Supplements. Your body produces D from sunshine, but if you live in the northern United States, the sun isn't strong enough in the winter for you to synthesize adequate amounts. Vitamin D is found naturally in few foods. Try This: Take up to 1,000 IU per day and look for D3 — the kind skin makes from sunlight. But you should probably re think taking Folic Acid This vitamin seems like such a do-gooder: It helps prevent birth defects, and studies suggest that it could help adults lower heart disease risk. But recently, researchers raised the possibility that excess folic acid may increase the danger of colon cancer. Answers aren't in, but some experts say that only women of childbearing age should take 400 mcg daily — the amount in most multivitamins. Other healthy adults should pick one with lower amounts. Put beans and dark green veggies high on your shopping list: One cup of cooked lentils contains nearly 100% of your day's folate requirement.

Have we found an elusive cure?

A beacon of hope is slowly shining for humanity as scientists have recently uncovered in three genetic studies, information that just might lead us to a cure for cancer. The studies were able to "map" the changes of brain and pancreatic cells undergo in becoming cancer cells. This discovery, according to an Associated Press article, "points to a new approach for fighting tumors and maybe even catching them sooner." It also said that while the exact development is different for every patient, the changes that genes undergo are quite similar. This means that treatment research may not be aimed onto specific genes, but on the "entire pathways that most patients share." This certainly is a quite an unorthodox way of curing a disease, but it does offer promise. After all, finding each gene mutation (that ultimately leads to cancer) has proven to be quite a daunting task for scientists. The new approach is certainly a good one for combating a disease that seems to take so many forms. As Dr. Bert Vogelstein of Hopkins University put it, the current cure that is being experimented on "should work in larger groups of patients."
