Great conversation starter, thanks!

Hear hear!

Low heat drying is something MegaFood also talks about--I can check on the exact temp. I believe both Garden of Life and New Chapter grow food nutrients on yeast, which theoretically gives...

A sane excerpt from Andrew Weil on this study:

I don't believe anyone needs to eat red meat to be healthy. We can get the protein and essential fatty acids we need from other sources, such...

Speaking of Nature's Way, this brings to mind the upset over P&G's recent purchase of New Chapter. If NC's founders were just interested in raising money and expanding market opportunities,...

I know that MycoFormulas cultures their cordyceps, and claim to have achieved higher potencies than the native stuff. I'd like to hear about others.

will be looking for the melt in my local stores (and the three twins)

Interesting update. Despite assurances, it seems clear to me that changes will come to New Chapter in the nearish term.

On the subject of in-house testing, I got this from MegaFood today:

MegaFood announced today that their in-house testing and research facility has received ISO 9001:2008 certification....

Thanks for your comment, Mike. It's great that you scrutinize labels, which is always the best way to make choices. Certainly, having as few other ingredients is optimal in supplements, just as it...

nice use of the word senescence!

So many Americans are on one or more prescription drugs, some of them also take supplements. With AERs, how do reporting agencies sort out what is causing what? Might supplements be easier to...

When I read an older version of Rodale's recent roundup of good/bad sweeteners, I was impressed by many well-informed comments defending agave.
Like this one: Agave gets its sweetness from a...

Thanks for the update--will look forward to hearing Kathleen Merrigan et al at Expo!

The FDA drug approval process seems to pacify everyone, unlike the self-regulated aspects of supplement industry--more of a hair-trigger response to any adverse event reports.

Friday, February 17, 2012 - 11:58

Thanks for the tip--and let us know if you find a source!

Health & wellness going mainstream on so many levels. As long as they don't greenwash these products, seems like smart business and a step in the collective right direction.

Wednesday, February 15, 2012 - 18:44

Great questions! Would love to get hear more details on GMO labeling--seems another good way to keep this issue on the radar in the U.S.

Monday, February 13, 2012 - 12:18

Great reminder, Todd. My understanding is that "clean coal" scrubbers actually mean there's more mercury and other toxins left in the coal ash, which can blow. And so many containment ponds at...

This is a great proactive model that any retailer who sells supplements can follow. Thanks for sharing.

"The consumer is now in focus, not the product. " I love this insightful quote--and how it makes a connection to how people today want to take back control--not only over what they are eating, but...

Thanks for gathering this important info! I saw that Marion Nestle was also driven to write on this topic recently. When babies and toddlers are raised on juice and other sweet drinks, they grow...

Wednesday, January 18, 2012 - 14:30

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. The issue of children's nutrition needs more and more effective attention and resources--and fast! I saw this yesterday in the NYTimes, seems a step in...

Wow. Her timing seems a double bummer: to wait so long to share, and to suddenly step up with the news once she lands a big pharma contract... Disappointing

What about other lemon or citruse-flavored fish oil supplements? Carlson and other make them as well.

Friday, December 16, 2011 - 15:21

What a great opportunity to check out this issue from close-up. I hope you get a chance to learn more about the broader krill industry and krill harvesting practices.

Friday, December 16, 2011 - 15:18

Really insightful look at this emerging area of the supplement/food/beauty world. Fascinating stuff--thanks!

Tuesday, December 13, 2011 - 14:53

Thanks for your comment--interesting points about the complex relationship between genes, immunity, and nutrients.

Monday, December 12, 2011 - 17:20

Thanks for taking the time to make for voice heard, Jody. This is such a critical issue, both locally and nationally--and an area where our government has done a poor job of protecting our well-...

Love this! Thanks for posting. I know that exercise and fresh air and sunshine keep me both sane & healthy--and it's helpful to remember that even a short walk helps.
