Tuna is not a vegetable!

I discuss the article AQUA 2012: Soybean Oil is a Good Alternative to Fish Oil in Tuna Diets.

While focusing on the ocean, I bring up the brave work of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and encourage listeners to find out more about them on their website.

With the Jewish holidays coming up, I explain the ritual of kaporos or kapparot, and encourage people in the NYC area to go to one of the Alliance To End Chickens As Kaporos protests.

Lots of people are talking about the recent study Are Organic Foods Safer or Healthier Than Conventional Alternatives? and I added my thoughts to the conversation. Mother Jones offers an excellent retort 5 Ways the Stanford Study Sells Organics Short.

Seems like I can’t do a show lately without mentioning something about Soda and Sugary Beverages in the news and this week is no exception.

Happily more non-veg restaurants are serving up innovative, delicious vegan courses and the offerings at Rouge Tomate in NYC are spectacular!

Last but not least, I review the REAL recipes posted to the website this week, Kasha and Onions, and Leek and Lentil Soup, and briefly discuss one ingredient, Kelp Powder.
