A little bit about me…

…and why I am blogging.

I’m interested in everything and I find that the best way to learn is to research and study a subject so much that you are comfortable writing about it, and therefore teaching it to others. Right now, I’d say I’m just getting started. Here are some links to writing I’ve done so far:

I guess I’m not surprised…

As some/most of you know, I have become increasingly interested in “agri-business,” and how the industrialization of food has affected what, how, when, where and why we eat. The chart below, from yesterday’s NY Times, compares the average food intake in 1970 versus 2006. I was surprised to see the red meat consumption has declined a quarter of a percentage. Perhaps the most startling increase however, is the fats. Wowzers.
