American Meat - the moo-vie

is coming to Santa Barbara.

featuring Joel Salatin and others
Tuesday, Jan 24 at Center of the Heart in Santa Barbara
American Meat is a solutions-oriented documentary surveying the current state of the U.S. meat industry. Featuring, Joel Salatin, Chuck Wirtz, Fred Kirschenmann Steve Ells, Paul Willis, and tens of farmers across America, we take an even-handed look at animal husbandry.
We explain how America arrived at our current industrial system, and show you the feedlots and confinement houses, not through hidden cameras but through the eyes of the farmers who live and work there. From there, we introduce the current revolution developing in animal husbandry, led by the charismatic and passionate Joel Salatin.
We meet tens of farmers across the country who have changed their life to start grass-based farms, and we highlight every day tangible solutions that people can take, to change agriculture in America.
$10, $8 presale tickets at http://hopedance.org/purchase

"Panelists" will include farmers Elizabeth Poett, John DeBruin and others.
Samples from DeyDey's Best Beef Ever will be at the event as well.

Mountain Dew? Don't.

Things that make you go...ewwwwww.

There’s flame retardant in your Mountain Dew. That soda with the lime-green hue (and other citrus-flavored bubbly pops) won’t keep your insides fireproof, but it does contain brominated vegetable oil, a patented flame retardant for plastics that has been banned in foods throughout Europe and in Japan.

Brominated vegetable oil, or BVO, which acts as an emulsifier in citrus-flavored soda drinks, is found in about 10 percent of sodas sold in the U.S.

“After a few extreme soda binges — not too far from what many [video] gamers regularly consume – a few patients have needed medical attention for skin lesions, memory loss and nerve disorders, all symptoms of overexposure to bromine,” according to a recent article in Environmental News. - ABC
