I Used An App To Buy Only Ethical Food. It Was Really Hard.
As I walked up to the banana pileup, I knew I was in trouble. Sure, those things are an excellent (and affordable) healthy snack, but they are almost universally sourced from producers with serious ethical issues. Yet I still wanted them. What would Michael Pollan do?! Sheepishly, I scanned the banana barcode using HowGood, a free app intended to help shoppers make more ethical food purchases. I’d been using the app all week to try to make all the “right” choices at the grocery store. The app revealed, unsurprisingly, that the bananas did not meet HowGood’s sustainability standards, but there were n...

Ellagic acid is a, ‘phytochemical,’ or plant chemical that is found in strawberries, cranberries, raspberries, pecans, walnuts, pomegranates and other plant foods. Research in laboratory animals and cell cultures has discovered that ellagic acid might slow the rate of growth of some tumors caused by certain carcinogens. Even though this is promising, there remains no reliable evidence at this time from human clinical studies showing that ellagic acid has the ability to either prevent or treat forms of cancer. Additional research is required in order to determine what benefits it may have. (Source: Disabled World)
