  • Is foie gras torture? Although animal rights activists say “yes,” the facts clearly say otherwise. The fact that these activists persist in their lawsuits against humanely-raised fois gras tells me that they’re far more interested in diminishing human welfare (by preventing any use of animals for human ends) than in promoting animal welfare.
  • The Los Angeles Times reports on the growing criticism of fruit juice: It’s time fruit juice loses its wholesome image, some experts say. Despite the connection to rights-violating “sin taxes,” I’m glad to see questions raised about the health of juice.
  • What the World Eats — a fascinating photoessay showing a week’s worth of food for families around the world. The two American families stood out: almost everything on their menu seemed to be packaged junk.
  • Someday, I’d love to get a miniature Jersey cow. Seriously. Maybe I can get a curly-haired pig too. I’ve got plenty of room in my new barn!
  • Monica Hughes of FA/RM, OEvolve, and Ancestral Generation published an op-ed in the Denver Post this week on Animal fat, sugar and diabetes. She analyzes a study to reject the conclusion that exercise and low-fat diet prevent diabetes.
