Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine Goes to Bat for School Children

This ad has stirred a controversy, with The White House objecting to the ad's mentioning "Obama's daughters." But it's not really about them. It's about all the schools that aren't as evolved as the one they go to. The ad is designed to wake Congress up to the fact that most school lunch programs offer no fresh produce.  Bravo to PCRM for this brilliant strategy to help the health of the nation's children!

K-Tec Now Makes a BPA-Free Blender Jar

I've been using K-Tec's Total Blender, a power blender, for a couple years, and it's made a huge difference in my ability whip up raw soups, smoothies, puddings and ice cream batter.

Now it's even better because I've gotten their BPA-free blender jar.  BPA (bisphenol-A) is a chemical that studies have linked to diseases, so who would want to blend hard ingredients like frozen nuts and seeds, raw cacao beans and frozen fruit in a jar containing BPA, when those hard ingredients pound against the plastic during blending, and most certainly knock some of the BPA into whatever's being blended?
