GMO Labeling Required in China and Russia, But Not in U.S.

Do you know exactly what is in the food you are buying? Many Americans have become accustomed to reading the labels of the food they are purchasing. Verifying that the food is safe to eat, whether there is a need to safeguard against food allergies, or simply a matter of preference for ingredients, has become commonplace for many throughout this country. This is a smart habit, but it’s only useful if something is actually written on the label. Are you aware that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not require labeling foods that have been genetically engineered in laboratories or contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs)?

Will the “lost decade” change our wasteful ways when it comes to food?

The Hard Facts, the Numbers

Launched in 2007 by WRAP, the 'Love Food, Hate...

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now that food prices are on the rise and people in developed countries are tightening their purse strings, we are beginning what IMF Managing Director Christine LaGarde refers to as the “lost decade.” We are starting to think about food waste and food budgets — not something we talked much about over the last few decades. Unless we were in finance, we watched the price of cacao, but not much else.

“The average British shopper estimates that they bin almost 10% of the food bought in their weekly shop, while 8% admit to throwing away as much as a quarter of their food on a regular basis, according to new research on Monday,” says The Guardian.

Slow Food News: The Conundrum of Buying Healthy, Fair and Cheap

By Friday, January 27, 2012 Permalink

Slow Food U.S.A. founder Josh Viertel ended up losing a large number of his core supporters after sponsoring what seemed like an idea in line with the hard economic times. How did he do this? By sponsoring the “ Challenge,” in which people were asked to “sign a pledge to cook a slow-food meal for not much more than the cost of a McDonald’s Extra Value Meal. To some, it was heresy.”

Many of its core members didn’t agree, since Slow Food’s message has been from the beginning that Americans were going to have to accept to pay more if farmers were to get fair pay.
