1. In Vitro Meat

A nonprofit research consortium called New Harvest is advocating for the use of lab-grown fish, chicken, and pork. They claim that in vitro meat would reduce the demand for farm animals, slowing the spread of diseases (avian influenza, salmonella, etc.) and minimizing the meat industry’s negative effects on the environment. This lab-grown meat may appear on the market in as few as five years, mainly in the form of hamburgers and chicken nuggets.

2. "Meat consumption is just as dangerous to public health as tobacco use... It's time we looked into holding the meat producers and fast-food outlets legally accountable." ~ Neal Barnard, President Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM)


3. More Benefits to Soy Intake

A new study published in the December 2008 issue of Osteoporosis International indicates that soy protein intake could help protect against bone loss in post menopausal women. The study, which included over 400 perimenopausal Chinese women, revealed that the fastest bone loss occurred in women undergoing menopause – but that soy protein intake seemed to exert a positive effect on bone health.

4. (RSV) Psalm 59:16
But I will sing of thy might; I will sing aloud of thy steadfast love in the morning. For thou hast been to me a fortress and a refuge in the day of my distress.

God's love helps us overcome the many obstacles in life and trials we are faced. Trusting God and His will give us the strength and hope we need.

6. Burger King Alert of Cancer-Causing Chemical in Grilled Chicken

Burger King settled the lawsuit filed by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) by agreeing to warn customers that its grilled chicken entrées contain PhIP, one of a group of carcinogenic compounds called heterocyclic amines that are produced when meats are cooked at high temperatures, as in grilling or barbecuing. PCRM had filed the lawsuit in 2008 against Burger King, along with McDonald's, Chick-fil-A, Applebee’s, Outback Steakhouse, Chili’s Grill and Bar Restaurant, and T.G.I. Friday’s in January 2008 for knowingly exposing their customers to PhIP without warning them of its risks.
