    Wheat Belly Blog ^ | September 11, 2016 | Dr. William Davis
    Here‚Äôs an excerpt from the Wheat Belly Cookbook about modern high-yield, semi-dwarf wheat, what I call the ‚ÄúFrankengrain‚ÄĚ because of the extensive and bizarre changes introduced into this grass by geneticists and agribusiness. (Even though a cookbook, I tried to make the Wheat Belly Cookbook a standalone book that discusses the background on why and how the Wheat Belly lifestyle yields such unexpected and extravagant health and weight loss successes. For this reason, the first 90 pages of the cookbook reiterate many of the Wheat Belly basic concepts.)From the Wheat Belly Cookbook: Wheat encapsulates a fundamental dilemma of our technological...

The offbeat 30-seat eatery announced this month that its last day would be Wednesday, Nov. 30.

    In July, the city of Dallas offered at least $3 million to any grocery store willing to sell fresh produce and healthy food in a "southern Dallas food desert." For the first time, the city made it known it had money available, advertising in grocery trade publications. Decades of pleading, of keeping fingers crossed, begat the promise of cold, hard cash. But officials said Wednesday they never found a taker. [Snip] Council members had hoped a grocery store chain would agree to open at least one 25,000-square-foot store in southern Dallas and, preferably, one that could anchor a larger mixed-use...

The franchise-owner from Uniontown Pennsylvania put the stacked treat on sale at one of his restaurants in 1968.

But the creation of a two-patty burger with lettuce, cheese, gherkins, onions and ďspecial sauceĒ proved an instant hit, and was rolled out to his other 47 outlets across the US.

Florida State University Associate Professor of Anthropology Tanya Peres and graduate student Kelly Ledford write in a paper published today in the Journal of Archaeological Science: Reports that Native Americans as early as 1200 - 1400 A.D. were managing and raising turkeys. This is the first time scientists have suggested that turkeys were potentially domesticated by early Native Americans in the southeastern United States.

    Over the summer, millions of pounds of Michigan tart cherries were dumped on the ground and left to rot, thanks to a federal board. The dumping means fewer tart cherries in stores which means higher prices for consumers. And while American farmers are forced to keep their cherries off the market, some companies end up having to import cherries from other nations. Photos of some of the dumped cherries went viral. The images troubled many people, who wanted to know why all that fruit was wasted. The short answer is this: Itís complicated and involves government policies. The Cherry Industry...

I recently ran across a scrambled eggs recipe that used Worcestershire sauce: You Never Knew You Needed Scrambled Eggs With Worcestershire Sauce I tried it and I liked it.

    Despite what many people think the left-liberal coalitionís decision to base so much of its effort on keeping the government out of our bedrooms is, long term, a losing strategy. Conservatives have a slight advantage where these issues are the only ones considered by people when deciding how to vote. If they could redirect their efforts to keeping government out of the kitchen they might have something. Uncle Sam has decided what we eat and drink is somehow his business. The government says it wants to bend the healthcare cost curve downward but really this is just another version of...

    Would you rather wait for the deliveryman to drive across town with your once hot pizza or snatch it out of a vending machine after its heated for several minutes and delivered to you immediately? The insanely popular Pizza ATM first came to life this summer at Ohio's Xavier University, answering the prayers of college students everywhere. Until now, it had been the the first Pizza ATM in North America. But thanks to one company in Florida, we could see more pizza vending machines nationwide....

    Plastic crockery and cutlery is to be banned in France unless it is made from biologically sourced materials. The law comes into force in 2020. It is part of a French environmental initiative called the Energy Transition for Green Growth, part of a package aimed at tackling climate change. But, the Independent reported, the move faces a challenge from Pack2Go Europe, a Brussels-based organisation representing European packaging manufacturers. "We are urging the European Commission to do the right thing and to take legal action against France for infringing European law," said Eamonn Bates, secretary general of Pack2go Europe. He said...

    Millions of American teenagers are at risk of running out of food or don't have access to affordable, healthy food. Some of them are so desperate, they're selling their bodies and committing crimes to go to jail to ensure regular meals, according to an Urban Institute study. Breaking down the numbers The study found at least 6.8 million people were "food insecure," meaning they didn't have reliable access to affordable, healthy food. Another 4 million were in "marginally food secure" households, where the "threat of running out of food is real." All of the 10 communities surveyed in focus groups...

    Back in May I was invited to Singapore to tour schools, IT hubs, hospitals and startups. The size of the country, as well as their government structure, allows them move towards their objectives more quickly than other countries. What I witnessed during my visit was a nation determined to be seen as a leader in the technology sector and to be recognized as a nucleus for some of the top innovators in the world. One aspect of the trip that really resonated with me was the country's use of vertical farming and other cutting edge agricultural techniques. Population Pressures The...

    My Budget 360 ^ | September 2016
    Over 17 million kids went to college to be waiters or flight attendants. ___ There are many reasons why so many people now work in the low wage sectors of America. As it turns out, the eating habits of Americans have changed dramatically. Only in the last couple of years have Americans spent more on eating out than they do on actual groceries. Too bad the median annual pay for waiters and waitresses in 2015 was $19,250 with tips included. Companies still havenít figured out how to outsource servers but our manufacturing base that once provided millions with good paying...

    Scientists on Monday revealed part of the secret to why a small village in southern Italy has an unusual number of centenarians - low levels of a particular hormone that affects circulation. Italian and US experts have spent the last six months investigating the extraordinary longevity of residents of Acciaroli, where more than one in 10 - 81 at the mayor's last count - of the village's population of 700 is over 100 years old.

    At a campground in northwestern Montana, 30 people are groggily gearing up for a day of mushroom picking. Most are here because they want an excuse to get outside and taste some of Montana's more exotic wild mushrooms. But others, like Matt Zaitz from Kansas, are here to turn a profit. "It's not easy work," Zaitz says. "It's tough." Zaitz started picking mushrooms in the Midwest this spring and followed them north as the season progressed. He's now hunting morels in the Crown of the Continent region near Glacier National Park. At this point, Zaitz considers himself a professional. "I...
