Book Description :

What you will learn in this cookbook? How does it differ from other ones? When I had severe MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivities) and food allergies (they often come together), I learned about which foods I could eat safely. This book contains recipes made only with these safe foods. You will own over 320 recipes tailored to your needs: * They are not complicated, not time and money consuming and do not require any hunting for extraordinary ingredients. You won't be lost in many words reading them. * You will be given recipes with kamut, quinoa, millet, buckwheat, barely and amaranth as alternatives for the allergenic wheat. * You will find a recipe for baking powder and egg substitute. You will learn which type of eggs may be safe to eat. * As an alternative for allergenic pork, chicken, beef and shellfish, you will find scrumptious recipes for lamb and a few kinds of fish that nobody is allergic to. * You will be happy to learn of dishes and drinks made from goat's milk and cheese, which test good for people on the strictest MCS diets. * For sweeteners, you will use healthy non-allergenic maple syrup, and later, honey. According to Dr. D G. Williams, sugar is slow suicide . * While other allergy cookbooks offer recipes with unhealthy margarine and oils (because the authors so not have a clue about their potential harmfulness), you will use healthy, absolutely non-allergenic virgin olive oil. * You will still be enjoying corn. That is - blue corn - as a replacement for the genetically modified (GM) corn. * You will learn about the hazards of GM foods on the market today, which of them you might already be buying, and which are being prepared for the market. * You will find out by simple inexpensive test which food you can tolerate, which foods strengthen you and which ones are poisonous to your body. * You will learn about a recent major medical discovery on page 61. Forward Do you own a whole row of cookbook, and yet, you do not know what to cook? I found myself in this situation a few years ago. I was seriously ill and on a very restrictive diet. I was allergic to most foods and all chemicals. I went through an impressive row of my cookbooks, but found only a few recipes in each cookbook, that I could use. Why store something I did not need? I took my scissors and went to work. I cut out few recipes from each book which could modified for for my diet. Except for my cookbook: Roister Blanka's Bohemian Recipe Collection, which I made earlier, the rest were discarded. For wheat I substituted healthy kamut, barely, amaranth, quinoa, millet, buckwheat, and rice. I have replaced cow's milk products with goat's milk products (No mad goat's disease yet!) For sweeteners, I used maple syrup and honey. For meats I used fish and lamb. I found substitutes for eggs and baking powder. My second cookbook for the sick times was born! Why was I, together with an increasing amount of people, so allergic? I thought, for the first time in my life, about the tons of chemicals which are being dumped into the air, water and food. I thought about pesticides cleaning supplies, detergent and personal care items I was using. They were full of toxic chemicals. I identified the last straw that broke the camels back . It was a tiny leak of gas in our house and mold. I subscribed to Our Toxic Times . I immersed myself in deep studies on the subject. Instead of products with chemicals, I started to use natural products. I started to flee from any chemical scents. It took no longer to identify the other reasons for my allergies. More and more of our food is being genetically engineered. It contains anything from fish genes to human genes! The genetic engineers are playing a dangerous game with God's perfect creation. (Should we say- with the perfect creation of one unique couple: Brainless Mother Nature and Blind Force Father Evolution ?) For example: It is common knowledge, that the genetically modified Monsanto white skin potato is legally registered as a pesticide . It does kill potato bugs. People are eating pesticides without their knowledge! No wonder people get sicker and sicker! Unfortunately they are unaware of these facts. As if it would not be enough, the Monsanto scientists engineered this potato with a gene called The Terminator . This means that the potatoes would not sprout the next season and farmers would buy potatoes for planting from Monsanto again. This way, starting with potatoes, Monsanto could have complete control over our foods supplies. What will happen, when the Terminator spreads by pollination to other plants and to wild plants? Monsanto did not stop here. The article Monsanto's Genetically Modified Milk Ruled Unsafe by United Nations explains, why the European market will not except milk from the USA. They do not want anything to do with Monsanto's Round up Ready Beans either. The FDA ruled that GM foods are not to be labeled! (It is a public knowledge, that some of the high officials in the FDA used to work for Monsanto.) A flood of other GM foods are being prepared for our market. This is why people are increasingly allergic to foods! For example: Pollen from GM (genetically modified) Bt corn drifted into milkweed. It killed most of the feeding larvae of the Monarch butterfly. (The IMP PRACTICIONS, july 1999, Vol. 21 (7):(17). This Ohio study found that Bt treated crops provoke immune changes in crop pickers and handlers, indicative of developing allergies. Some fish are GM with human, cattle and rat's genes to increase their growth. Plants are getting antifreeze from flounder. Tobacco os GM with human genes to manufacture human blood clotting factors. GM corn, sold in Britain, contains an antibiotic resistance gene. It is so powerful, that it may degrade antibiotics in human stomach in 30 min. Scientists are trying to GM other species with human genetic traits, including human behavior. Transgenic animals, chimeras,

Book Description :

Benefits and consequences of controversial products are debated in the public arena for the protection of consumers and to evaluate the market decisions made by industry and government. The food industry continues to develop new foods as well as processes to bring food to the market. Some of these processes bring to issue the safety of the products or the impact on the market, workers, or environment. Such controversial products or processes include BSE (mad cow disease), genetically modified organisms (GMO), antibiotics, pesticides, carbon monoxide modified atmosphere packaging, and food irradiation. This thesis sets out with the objective of understanding, developing, and utilizing methodologies similar to those used in other contingent valuation studies to evaluate how consumers are influenced by varying information using food irradiation as a focus subject. Food irradiation is a technological food process that continues to be debated and much information favoring and opposing it is readily available to the public, making it a suitable subject about which to study information effects and consumer acceptance. To accomplish this objective, consumers were surveyed in grocery stores in the state of Texas during the spring of 2006. As irradiated foods are not currently widely available, a hypothetical product, irradiated mangoes, was used to elicit information from survey participants. The survey was comprised of two parts. First general information regarding consumer knowledge and trust of food irradiation as well as willingness to pay (WTP) was collected. Second, varying information regarding food irradiation (positive, negative, or mixed) was presented and questioning was reaccomplished. Evaluation of the survey data was made in three papers, each comprising its own chapter in this thesis. The first paper evaluates consumers0́9 initial trust and knowledge of food irradiation and how these factors interact with information in changing WTP. The second paper assesses responses for a 0́cheap talk0́+ effect. Cheap talk is informing consumers of the existence of hypothetical bias in studies of this type with the goal being to reduce this bias to real life response equivalence. The third paper evaluates not only WTP, but also how consumer trust is affected by varying forms of information.

Food Labelling is the only comprehensive text on the labelling of food products. With contributions from leading European and American experts in the field, it provides a clear and authoritative guide both to key legislation in the European Union and the United States, and to good international practice in such areas as traceability and instructions for storage and use. You get information on: Key issues in food labelling and the range of legislation in the European Union and the United States Declaration of ingredients and additives, durability indication, nutrition information, nutrition and health claims International practice in design such as multi-language requirements Labelling for allergens, genetically-modified foods and ingredients, and irradiated foods and ingredients Determining shelf-life for labelling The last decade has seen new labelling needs. The advent of genetically modified foods and irradiated foods has necessitated the development of new labelling provisions to facilitate informed consumer choice. The belated recognition by legislators and industry that food allergy can be life threatening, and is a major food safety issue, has led to the need for label warnings about the presence of major food allergens. Food Labelling covers all these issues and more.

Book Description :

The introduction of new technologies can be controversial, especially when they create ethical tensions as well as winners and losers among stakeholders and interest groups. While ethical tensions resulting from the genetic modification of crops and plants and their supportive gene technologies have been apparent for decades, persistent challenges remain. This book explores the contemporary nature, type, extent and implications of ethical tensions resulting from agricultural biotechnology specifically and technology generally. There are four main arenas of ethical tensions: public opinion, policy and regulation, technology as solutions to problems, and older versus new technologies. Contributions focus on one or more of these arenas by identifying the ethical tensions technology creates and articulating emerging fault lines and, where possible, viable solutions. Key features include focusing on contemporary challenges created by new and emerging technologies, especially agricultural biotechnology. Identifying a unique perspective by considering the problem of ethical tensions created or enhanced by new technologies. Providing an interdisciplinary perspective by including perspectives from sociologists, economists, philosophers and other social scientists. This book will be of interest to academics in agricultural economics, sociology and philosophy and policymakers concerned with introducing new technology into agriculture.
