Filed under: PolitikShark

This is a great step forward…but we'll see how far it goes…

Chinese officials have placed a ban on shark fin soup at all state banquets. While this sounds great for a dwindling shark population, there are a few forks in the way.

First, the new practice will take three years to fully implement….are their meals placed THAT far in advance???

Just another reason why we're an Otheist!! ;)

Just the other night, Oprah Winfrey was enjoying dinner at Beverly Hills hotspot Scarpetta when a passerby notified her of a homeless man's situation.

Right after she was heard telling four OWN execs, "I wish I could greenlight everything," the stranger came up and asked if she could afford the homeless man a bowl of soup.

Eddie, the man of the hour, then introduced himself to Oprah. And that's when she made sure to take care of him!

She was heard saying:

FDA Revising Nutritional Labels

Filed under: DietsFoodHealth

Nutrition facts label

In the most recent attempt to improve our county's diet, the Food and Drug Administration is working on a proposal to change (and hopefully improve) several parts of the standard nutritional facts label printed on every food package we buy.

FDA Deputy Commissioner Michael Taylor cautions the labels are no quick fix to obesity, but help display important information that leads to healthier consumer decisions, saying:

"There's no question obesity is a central public health concern that the nutrition facts panel can play a role in. It's obviously not a magic wand but it can be an informative tool."

For starters, the FDA is aiming for the label's portion size to better reflect the reality of what we ACTUALLY consider a portion. A can of soup or a 20 ounce bottle of soda, for example, are recommended as 2 or more servings, while most down the entire contents in one sitting.

Sources say the new design is likely to emphasize calories, while changing or removing all together items that haven't proven useful such as "calories from fat" and the daily percent value numbers.

We're excited to see the new design and hope it is more effective in displaying the important information necessary for Americans to make healthy diet choices.

What would U like to see added or removed from nutrition facts labels?
