I don't like trans-fats, heck I don't even touch the stuff or look at it for that matter, I think it's downright garbage. However, the CW-worshiping crowd that runs the FDA, USDA, and all these crap agencies often group trans-fats along with... (more)

Of course you're referring to the "First they came..." phenomenon. Just because we may agree with a ban on trans-fats, does that make it okay? Because what if they knock on sat-fat's door next? Indeed it is a slippery slope into a nanny/police... (more)

All ingredients should always be listed on packaging, period. The fact that the industry is trying to redefine milk is a clear sign that they will use any passed law to their advantage. Even though NBC stated that the industry says they will... (more)

After reading articles and watching videos (Weston A Price, ..) heavily criticizing USDA's recommendations, I thought it would be interesting to directly ask Health Canada (which I believe recommends pretty much the same diet as the USDA) what... (more)

Byron Richards is PISSED. You don't want to mess with him, his supplements give him super powers and he will mess you up. Er yeah, I don't think that supplements should be subjected to that kind of regulation. An unsafe supplemental dose is rare... (more)

The FDA and Senator Durbin’s latest attack against the dietary supplement industry should leave consumers for natural health options at affordable prices up in arms. This attack will target some of the most popular and effective dietary... (more)

I upvoted this because it's entirely appropriate in my opinion as a topic. That said, it's political and wonder why no objections were posted by the moderators in this regard. The link was obviously biased (no offense Quilt, this is not against... (more)

Does anyone know if the FDA dietary guidelines take into account absorption of nutrients from food? For example, if it says 600 mg of such and such, does that mean 600 mg absorbed from food or 600 mg contained in food before eating? Note: I am... (more)
