Dr Oz Going to the Dark Side: You may not watch Dr. Oz, but he has been leading millions of people to a healthier life and telling them to eat organic. He was changing a lot of peoples lives for the better.  I was saddened by his recent change of heart. It makes me wonder if he might have been bought out. Less than two months after telling millions of TV viewers that organic food is “worth the investment,” America’s most popular TV doctor is singing a different tune. In the December issue of Time magazine, Dr. Oz described organic foodies as “elitist” – part of the 1% - and claimed that conventional foods are nutritionally equivalent to organic foods. Read more here. If you do watch Dr. Oz and you are unhappy with his telling us organic eaters we are the 1%, don't bother emailing or calling his show, email and call his advertisers and tell them you are unhappy with what he has said and ask them to quit advertising with him. This is what will get the shows attention.

GMO Salmon Still Not approved by FDA: Yipee! Aquabounty is the only U.S. company publicly seeking approval for a genetically modified animal that's raised to be eaten by humans. So far the FDA has not approved their application. This is great. It has worried other companies that have either applied or were going to apply for applications on genetically modified animals they want to sell in the United States.
Already, biotech scientists are changing their plans to avoid getting stuck in FDA-related regulatory limbo. Researchers at the University of California, Davis have transferred an experimental herd of genetically engineered goats that produce protein-enriched milk to Brazil, due to concerns about delays at the FDA. And after investors raised concerns about the slow pace of the FDA's Aquabounty review, Canadian researchers in April pulled their FDA application for a biotech pig that would produce environmentally friendly waste.
