Health and Nutrition Strategies For Cancer Survivors and Everybody Else Warren Green is a 30 year member of the Institute of Food Technology, A HAACP (hazard analysis critical control point) Instructor with a Bachelors degree in Nutrition Science. WHAT’S IN YOUR DIET? Warren Green can be reached at warreng9241@hotmail.com I’ve been promoting the concept of the “Organic Capital of the World” for a few months now. It fits with my motto, “Let medicine be your food,and let food be your medicine”. As our environment becomes more and more polluted, more and antibiotics are used. Our nation’s food policy is risk based . Risk based means that it is not zero tolerant. The implication is that if the food product is not labeled natural, or certified organic, it won’t be as wholesome nor nutritious. Risk based also allows food manufacturers to use questionable additives and processing to extend shelf life and maximize profits. They argue through their lobbyist that consumers have the option to purchase a legal food product as long as it’s properly identified and meets the established regulatory standards. That comes with a lot of caveats. How a product is identified is critical to your well being. My perspective on food safety and food labeling comes from a career of ten years as a N.Y.S and USDA field Inspector, and fifteen years as Supervisory Food Technologist in the Food Labeling Division (FLD), Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS), at USDA headquarters. My professional career was all about understanding and protecting the nation’s food chain. Cancer Treatment Updates Here’s a quote from cancer immunologist Dr Drew Pardoll of the Sidney Kimmel Institute at Johns Hopkins “Immune therapy is a game changer We need more research to take us the rest of the distance, but we don’t think there is a single cancer that the patients own immune system ultimately can’t beat” This is a powerful statement from one of the top cancer researchers in the world. Their assertion is that many cancers have a dietary link. The immune system is an integral part of the digestive system. Your quality of life depends upon your quality of food Foreman Community Garden Open House There is always something to do in a garden. Master Gardener volunteers labor at the Foreman House Community Demonstration/Learning Garden and they would like the community to see the fruits of their labors. The Foreman House Community Demonstration/ Learning Garden will hold its second annual “Open House in the Garden” on July 13 from 5-7 pm behind the Foreman House Bed & Breakfast on Church Street. The Open House will feature children’s activities, food tastings, and a composting demonstration. One of the 18 raised beds has been reserved for children’s activities during the open house. Children will be able to use trowels and cultivators to dig for play worms and bugs hidden in the soil. There will also be seeds for children to plant. In addition to the raised beds, the garden includes a perimeter garden and a large pollinator garden. The garden includes various gardening techniques such as vertical, hay bale and container gardening. Susan Hankinson is chairperson of the committee that oversees the garden says, “The number of hours volunteers spend in the garden varies with the season, but during the growing season it probably averages 15 to 20 hours a week.” Produce from the garden is donated to the Food Bank of the Albemarle. Last year, over 1200 pounds of fresh produce were donated to the Food Bank. Business Home Auto Boat Renters Workers Comp.
