  • Consumption of moderate amounts of red meat plays an important nutritional role in our diets. A new review published in Animal, acknowledges the critical role red meat played in our evolution as a source of high-quality protein, micronutrients and essential fatty acids. Depsite meat’s continued role as an essential source of nutrients, authorities continue to push people towards eating fewer and fewer animal products. Meat eating has been demonised in recent decades due to its perceived environmental impact and potential risk to health, yet no distinction is made between intensive and inhumane livestock farming and regenerative livestock farming – much of which is carbon neutral. Meat remains an essential dietary component for many across the globe.

  • Vaping causes similar damage to people’s DNA as smokers who develop cancer, according to new research, published in Cancer Research, which raises further concerns over the supposed safety of vaping.

  • Adopting a keto diet protects brain health and reduces our risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.

  • A tsunami of precision fermented foods are being unleashed on unsuspecting consumers as eyewatering sums of money are poured into their development. Such foods are being marketed with extremely slick websites and social media that seek to reassure consumers of the safety and planet-friendly credentials of these new-to-nature products. New players include Nukoko, which is using broad beans to create ‘chocolate’, Bored Cow’s milk substitute (which has been found to contain 92 compounds previously unknown to science), Upside Foods (lab-grown chicken), and Checkerspot, which is fermenting microalgae to produce an essential fat found in breastmilk, are amongst the growing number of start-ups all trying to convince consumers fermed food products are the answer to saving the planet and feeding humanity.

  • Uruguay is bucking the trend of governments that are deregulating gene edited (GE) organisms by establishing a new Technical Working Group that will take a cautious approach to determining whether individual products or organisms obtained from GE techniques should be classified under existing regulations covering genetically modified organisms. It’s a step in the right direction but one that Big Biotech could potentially corrupt for its own benefit
  • A new review, commissioned by Health Canada and published in Critical Reviews in Toxicology, adds to the plethora of science showing that water fluoridation lowers children’s IQ. The authors of the study also found that as well as a reduction in IQ, fluoridation also causes dental fluorosis

Adoption of the Bill would put the US on a slippery slope to ever greater levels of authoritarian control over Americans’ ability to communicate via the internet. Let your Representative know that you don’t support this restrictive Bill…
