Why Sprouts Are Especially Good At Harboring Dangerous Bacteria
Sprouts may sound cute, but the tiny greens have sickened more than 2,500 people and caused 186 hospitalizations and three deaths in the past two decades, a new report finds. “Sprout contamination continues to pose a serious public health concern,” the researchers from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) wrote in their report. The arm of the FDA that wrote the new report focuses on investigating outbreaks and finding ways to prevent them.

The 'Juice' In Pre-Packaged Salad Greens May Encourage Salmonella Growth
When your unopened salad package starts collecting a clear liquid slime at the bottom of the bag, you might want to throw it out.  New stomach-turning research from the University of Leicester in England finds that this “salad juice” can help dangerous bacteria like salmonella cling to salad greens, potentially increasing consumers’ risk for food poisoning.  Microbiology researchers and study authors Primrose Freestone and Giannis Koukkidis explain in the video below that when juice from damaged leaves starts forming in a closed salad bag, it can encourage the salmonella bacterium to grow and st...

Here’s Another Case For Switching To A Vegetarian Diet
When it comes to the food we eat, there’s practically no such thing as a “guilt-free” diet — practically any food, unless you grow it yourself without using excessive pesticides or water, comes with nutritional, environmental or ethical consequences. But according to new research published last week in the Elementa journal, some diets fare far better than others when it comes to the important measure of how much agricultural land is required to produce the food they require. Specifically, diets that contained less meat tended to be far less land-dependent and, therefore, held the potential to feed a...

The GMO Labeling Conundrum Made Simple!
I am a Holistic Nutritionist and passionate environmentalist, and I still get confused about the whole GMO labeling conundrum - and conundrum it most definitely is: As I write, there is a bill in the Senate (also known as the DARK Act) that, if passed, would eradicate states' rights to label GMOs and replace simple, legible on-package labels with QR codes. But first let's get back to the basics. What is a GMO (genetically modified organism) or a GE (genetically engineered) ingredient? Simply put, genetic engineering is removing the genetic material from one organism and inserting it into the permanent genetic code (DNA) ...

What Is Going On With Glyphosate? EPA's Odd Handling of Controversial Chemical
The Environmental Protection Agency's ongoing risk assessment of the world's most widely used herbicide is starting to generate more questions than answers. On Monday, it also generated a giant "oops" from the EPA. On Friday, April 29, the EPA posted on its website a series of documents related to its long-awaited risk assessment for glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide and other weed-killing products sold around the world. The risk assessment started in 2009 and was supposed to conclude in 2015. But questions about whether or not glyphosate may cause cancer are dogging the agency's ...

This article originally appeared on Inverse. By Yasmin Tayag Drug testing, like heroin, got popular in the late '80s and early '90s. As Reagan's Drug War rushed towards its logical conclusion, employers hustled to create drug-free work environments despite a lack of evidence that there was any advantage in it or that tests actually worked. Now, as the legalization movement gains momentum, tests to screen for marijuana use seem outrageous, but they remain relatively common. Plenty of businesses still require a piss test and plenty of would-be employees still struggle to pass. There are cleanses and adulterants that promise...

Efficient, Antibiotic Marker-Free Transformation of a Dicot and a Monocot Crop with Glutamate 1-Semialdehyde Aminotransferase Selectable Marker Genes
Antibiotic-free, efficient in vitro selection in plant genetic engineering can improve risk perception and speed up pre-market scrutiny of genetically modified crops. We provide a protocol for genetic transformation of two important crops, durum wheat and alfalfa, using a bacterial and a plant-derived selectable marker gene encoding mutated, gabaculine-insensitive glutamate 1-semialdehyde aminotransferase (GSA) enzymes. These methods can potentially be applied, with minor adaptations, to many other monocot and dicot crop plants. (Source: Springer protocols feed by Plant Sciences)

Likewise, biotechnology companies aren’t required to report which genetically modified seeds are used in production. Yet the use of GMOs is undoubtedly widespread.
