And, in doing that, these phytochemicals—the resveratrol in red wine or the catechins in green, white, and black teas, for instance—may also reduce our risk of diseases associated with chronic inflammation, including cancer, atherosclerosis, and diabetes. But chronic, so-called “dysregulated” inflammation can increase disease risk. But studies led by ARS molecular biologist Daniel H. Using confocal microscopy, postdoctoral researcher Scott Wong left and molecular biologist Daniel Hwang analyze toll-like receptors, or TLRs, proteins involved in triggering inflammation.

Tea enhances insulin activity. This study determined the potential improvements in the control of blood sugar by the consumption of tea and determined the active ingredients in tea. Tea, as normally consumed, was shown to increase insulin activity more than 20-fold in a laboratory assay. Black, green and oolong teas, but not herbal teas, which are not teas in the traditional sense since they do not contain leaves of Camellia senensis, were all shown to increase insulin activity. Separation of the components of green tea extracts showed that essentially all of the insulin potentiating activity was in the fraction containing epigallocatechin gallate, a component that has also been shown to be an antioxidant. These data demonstrate that tea contains in vitro insulin enhancing activity and the predominant active ingredient is epigalloc...

However, little was known about the response of Ohio soybean cultivars and germplasm to the emerging viruses. Inoculation of field-grown soybeans at the unifoliate stage with Bean pod mottle virus induced mild mosaic symptoms, leaf puckering and seed mottling. In contrast, plants inoculated at the R6-R7 stage did not show foliar symptoms or height reduction. Early inoculation resulted in a higher percentage of mottled seed and greater yield reduction than did the later inoculation.

This study evaluated the use of high-sensitivity troponin assays, in algorithms incorporating baseline thresholds and thresholds for a rise from baseline to 1 hour, for both rule-in and rule-out of myocardial infarction in patients with acute chest pain presenting to the emergency department. Note that the study found that the rule-out algorithm had 100% sensitivity and negative predictive value, and the rule-in algorithm had 97% specificity and 84% positive predictive value. Baseline levels of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T hs-cTnT , along with changes in this biomarker within the first hour, can safely triage chest pain patients presenting to the emergency department, researchers found. Applying this strategy resulted in ruling out acute myocardial infarction AMI in 60% of 436 patients in a validation cohort, reported Christian Mueller, MD, from the University Hospital Basel in Switzerland, and colleagues.

This study evaluated the relationship between salivary cortisol response and cardiac troponin T plasma concentration in healthy older adults undergoing standardized mental stress tests. There was a significant association between heightened cortisol response to mental stress and detectable plasma levels of cardiac troponin T using high-sensitivity assays in healthy participants, a finding which was independent of the presence of coronary atherosclerosis.

HERSHEY, Pa., May 17 UPI -- Obesity in rats appears to impair normal muscle function, a finding that may help explain why it is hard to lose weight, U.S. The study, published in the Journal of Experimental Biology, used both healthy and genetically obese rats to determine how the expression of troponin T -- a gene that codes for a protein essential to muscle function -- varied as rats gained weight. The researchers demonstrated troponin T expression varied with body weight during normal growth. The externally applied weight caused a shift in the muscle troponin T expression, matching that of animals whose actual body weight was 30 percent higher. However, troponin T expression did not respond to a similar increase in body weight in the obese rats. Like Us on Facebook for more stories from UPI.com.

Unfortunately, the standard creatine kinase-MB CK-MB assay is not reliable in excluding infarction until 10 to 12 hours after the onset of chest pain. Studies have been undertaken to assess the utility of newer markers, such as troponin I, troponin T, creatine kinase-MB “subforms” and myoglobin. Sensitivity and specificity were determined for conventional CK-MB, CK-MB “subforms,” myoglobin, troponin T and troponin I. The most reliable marker for early diagnosis within six hours of onset of symptoms was the CK-MB subform, with a sensitivity of 91.5 percent. This was followed by myoglobin, conventional CK-MB, troponin T and troponin I. The most reliable marker for late diagnosis at 22...

A new study shows clearly that a muscle protein called troponin T has a role in the formation of muscle fibres and the maintenance of muscle integrity. In a study of gene inactivation in zebrafish, the researchers have shown that defective troponin T can lead to disintegration of muscle fibres.

Kelsey Grammer: Don’t Release My Sister’s Killer. “But we will never be free. Calling the man a “butcher” and a “monster,” actor Kelsey Grammer sent an e-mail to a Colorado parole board imploring them to deny his sister’s killer’s request for release from prison. Freddie Glenn, who is serving a life sentence after murdering three people in a six-week span in 1975 — including Grammer’s sister Karen — was denied the parole on Monday. Grammer began by apologizing for not being present at the hearing and went on to describe both what his sister had meant to the family and how her death affected every member of it, himself in particular. Grammer then characterized Glenn as a “monster” and questioned why the board would consider releasing him. You know the circumstances: rain /” rain delays at Kennedy that made it impossible for me to be in Colorado Springs in time to attend. Please tell the members of the parole board that it is my sincere hope they do not release my sister’s killer. Karen Elisa Grammer was her na...

*  Capillary electrochromatography
'Capillary electrochromatography' CEC is a chromatographic technique in which the mobile phase is driven through the chromatographic bed by electroosmosis. Capillary electrochromatography is a combination of two analytical techniques, High performance liquid chromatography and capillary electrophoresis. High performance liquid chromatography separates analytes by passing them, under high pressure, through a column filled with stationary phase. In capillary electrochromatography capillaries, packed with HPLC stationary phase, are subjected to a high voltage. The mobile phase is driven across the chromatographic bed using electroosmosis instead of pressure as in HPLC. Diagram of Mechanism of Capillary Electrochromatography The basic components of an capillary electrochromatograph are a sample vial, source and destination vials, a packed capillary, electrodes, a high voltage power supply, a detector, and a data output and handling device. The capillary is packed with stationary phase. The migration of the analyt...

Analytical Separations Using Polymetric Surfactants. by Kamande, Mary Waithira. Abstract Summary. The goal of the research presented in this dissertation is to develop effective analytical methods for the separation of both achiral and chiral analytes using polymeric surfactants. Three analytical techniques are employed to accomplish this objective: open-tubular capillary electrochromatography OT-CEC, open-tubular capillary electrochromatography coupled to mass spectrometry OT-CEC/MS, and micellar affinity gradient focusing MAGF. This research work presents novel application of polymeric surfactants that contributes to improved separations of difficult to separate analytes. The first part focuses on the application of an achiral polyelectrolyte multilayer PEM coating using OT-CEC. The PEM coating consisting of the cationic polymer poly diallyldime...

Here we introduce a strategy to pack microfluidic channels with silica nanoparticles and microbeads, thereby indirectly producing functional nanostructures; the method allows selected channels to be packed, here demonstrated so that a separation channel is packed while keeping an injection channel unpacked. This packing approach may be used to simultaneously pack multiple channels with silica microbeads having different sizes and surface properties. The liquid/analyte transport characteristics of these packed micro/nanofluidic devices have potential utility in a wide range of applications, including electroosmotic pumping, liquid chromatograp...

In food analysis, complexity of the food matrix can have the largest impact on the performance and long term reliability of the analytical methods and procedures used. For example, high-fat or high-sugar foods can cause different types of interferences compared to low-fat or low-sugar food. Therefore, analytical methods for food analysis always need to take into account the characteristics and composition of the specific food matrix which in general shorten the life time of the analytical column in extreme cases only, one injection and the column is dead. These new analytical assays must provide sensitivity, robustness and high resolution within an acceptable analysis time. Many modern approaches in high pressure liq...

*  Tobacco Farm Workers May Contract Tobacco Sickness, Study Shows
... Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center Careers. News Media. Tobacco Farm Workers May Contract Tobacco Sickness, Study Shows. Quandt, Ph.D., said that 41 percent of tobacco farm workers reported having green tobacco sickness at least once during the summer. "This is the first survey research to document green tobacco sickness as an occupational health risk among seasonal and migrant farm workers," Quandt reported. While green tobacco sickness was first described in the medical literature in 1970, it rarely came to medical attention, perhaps because it was less likely to occur on small family tobacco farms, where exposure to wet tobacco leaves was limited. Green tobacco sickness is an environmental justice issue, part of the growing concern that poor, minority and medically underserved populations bear a disproportionate share of environmental and occupational health risks." Quandt and other researchers at Wake Forest are now engaged in a three-year epidemiological study of green tobacco sickness among farm wo...

*  Green Tobacco Sickness
... 'Green Tobacco Sickness' 'GTS' is a type of nicotine poisoning caused by the dermal absorption of nicotine from the surface of wet tobacco plants. 1 Tobacco harvesters, whose clothing becomes saturated from tobacco wet with rain or morning dew, are at high risk of developing GTS. Workers can avoid getting this sickness by waiting to harvest until the tobacco leaves are dry, or by wearing a rain suit. Wet clothing that has come in contact with tobacco leaves should be removed immediately and the skin washed with warm soapy water. Nicotine from other sources, including nicotine gum, a nicotine patch or electronic cigarette, or other tobacco products like cigarettes or smokeless tobacco, appears to reduce the risk of GTS due to the body adapting to the intake of nicotine. Symptoms of GTS include nausea, vomiting, headache, dizziness, and severe weakness. The illness will resolve on its own within one to two days, but symptoms may be so severe as to require emergency medical treatment. In the United States, ...

should change biofuel policy to avoid food crisis: U.N. should change biofuel policy to avoid food crisis: U.N. August 13, 2012. ROME Reuters - The U.N.'s food agency stepped up the pressure on the United States on Friday to change its biofuel policies because of the danger of a world food crisis, arguing the importance of growing crops for food over their use for fuel. Global alarm over the potential for a food crisis of the kind seen in 2007/08 has escalated as drought in the U.S. Midwest has sent grain prices to record highs, fuelling a 6 percent surge in the UN Food and Agriculture Organization's July food price index. federal mandates, leaving even less for food and feed markets," he wrote in an editorial. fuel companies are required to ensure that 9 percent of their gasoline pools are made up of ethanol this year, which means converting some 40 percent of the corn crop into the biofuel.

How to Manufacture a Global Food Crisis: The destruction of agriculture in developing countries Walden Bello How to manufacture a global food crisis: The destruction of agriculture in developing countries Walden Bello How free trade is destroying Third World agriculture-and who's fighting back. The global rise in food prices is not only a consequence of using food crops to produce biofuels, but of the free trade policies promoted by international financial institutions. Because of US government subsidies, American farmers were devoting more and more acreage to corn for ethanol than for food, which sparked a steep rise in corn prices. Eroding Mexican Agriculture The Mexican food crisis cannot be fully understood without taking into account the fact that in the years preceding the tortilla crisis, the homeland of corn had been converted to a corn-importing economy by free market policies promoted by the International Monetary Fund IMF, the World Bank and Washington.

Food Aid Emergency. The food price crisis has made demand more acute and supplies even scarcer, but it hasn’t really changed the underlying problems with food aid as a response to hunger. Even the World Bank’s World Development Report 2008 highlighted the neglect of agriculture in the last 30 years of development spending and the myriad problems this neglect had created. Food aid donations have fallen sharply while the number of people facing acute need in emergencies of different kinds has increased. For instance, the United States still sells food aid to governments, who then sell or distribute the food in local markets. Another practice unique to the United States and highly criticized by the food aid community is called monetization: the sale of food aid to generate cash for development projects. While on a different scale and easier to target, the monetization of development food aid the practice hardly exists for emergency food aid is little different in effect from the program food aid that the United ...

... Earnings. States Where the Most People Go Hungry. According to the report, between 2010 and 2012, an average of 20% of Mississippi households had low or very low food security. In that period, an average of one in 12 Arkansas households had at least one family member skip a meal or eat less because of a lack of money. These are the states where the most people go hungry. The states with the lowest food security, not surprisingly, are among the poorest in the country. In Mississippi and Arkansas, the two worst states for food security, median income was less than $40,000. Of the 10 states with the lowest food security, eight had the highest poverty rates in the country. Ross Fraser, spokesperson for hunger-relief charity Feeding America, explained that having low food security does not necessarily mean families are starving. It may surprise some that, in fact, the majority of the 10 states with food access problems have higher-than-average obesity rates. Mississippi and Arkansas had the second and third h...

When caregivers seek work or food away from home, the caring and feeding practices for children at home will diminish. Children must have secure access to food, coupled with a healthy environment that includes access to health care, water and adequate care. For aid and development agencies such as UNICEF, the long-standing effort to protect child health and nutrition will continue with the expansion and enhancement of programmes already in place. Other actions encompass: strengthen the monitoring systems and assessment of the nutritional status and other impacts and mapping vulnerabilities; advocacy for the protection of children, scaling up national nutrition programmes and supporting health interventions, including promoting optimum breastfeeding and complementary feeding practices as well as school feeding programmes; improving ...

... Investment Advisor. August 1, 2012 Jeremy Grantham: Today a Food Crisis, Tomorrow ‘Dystopia’ Doomsaying hedge fund manager calls the veneer of global stability ‘perilously thin’. High-performing hedge fund manager Jeremy Grantham is known for his doom-and-gloom outlook. Consistently, he has urged investors to be overweight natural resources. This is largely because the new era beginning 10 years ago of rising resource prices he started writing about a year ago has been aggravated by what he sees as the start five years ago of a full-blown food crisis. The current spike in corn prices is more worrisome than the previous 2008 food crisis because the poor U.S. The strategically important Middle Eastern country is already staggering under rising food prices that consume more than 40% of its food budget in contrast to the 10% or 12% of developed-country budgets. Grantham believes sufficient efforts to stem a food crisis will not be taken. While food crisis is the biggest theme, Grantham foresees the current a...

(1/3155) Personal exposure to dust, endotoxin and crystalline silica in California agriculture.

AIMS: The aim of this study was to measure personal exposure to dust, endotoxin and crystalline silica during various agricultural operations in California over a period of one year. METHODS: Ten farms were randomly selected in Yolo and Solano counties and workers were invited to wear personal sampling equipment to measure inhalable and respirable dust levels during various operations. The samples were analysed for endotoxin using the Limulus Amebocyte Lysate assay and crystalline silica content using X-ray diffraction. In total 142 inhalable samples and 144 respirable samples were collected. RESULTS: The measurements showed considerable difference in exposure levels between various operations, in particular for the inhalable fraction of the dust and the endotoxin. Machine harvesting of tree crops (Geometric mean (GM) = 45.1 mg/m3) and vegetables (GM = 7.9 mg/m3), and cleaning of poultry houses (GM = 6.7 mg/m3) showed the highest inhalable dust levels. Cleaning of poultry houses also showed the highest inhalable endotoxin levels (GM = 1861 EU/m3). Respirable dust levels were generally low, except for machine harvesting of tree crops (GM = 2.8 mg/m3) and vegetables (GM = 0.9 mg/m3). Respirable endotoxin levels were also low. For the inhalable dust fraction, levels were reduced considerably when an enclosed cabin was present. The percentage of crystalline silica was overall higher in the respirable dust samples than the inhalable dust samples. CONCLUSIONS: Considerable differences exist in personal exposure levels to dust, endotoxin and crystalline silica during various agricultural operations in California agriculture with some operations showing very high levels.  (+info)

(2/3155) Mechanical maceration of alfalfa.

Maceration is an intensive forage-conditioning process that can increase field drying rates by as much as 300%. Because maceration shreds the forage and reduces its rigidity, improvements in bulk density, silage compaction, and ensiling characteristics have been observed. Macerating forage also increases the surface area available for microbial attachment in the rumen, thereby increasing forage digestibility and animal performance. Feeding trials with sheep have shown increases in DMI of 5 to 31% and increases in DM digestibility of from 14 to 16 percentage units. Lactation studies have demonstrated increases in milk production and BW gain for lactating Holstein cows; however, there is a consistent decrease in milk fat percentage when dairy cattle are fed macerated forage. In vitro studies have shown that maceration decreases lag time associated with NDF digestion and increases rate of NDF digestion. In situ digestibility studies have shown that maceration increases the size of the instantly soluble DM pool and decreases lag time associated with NDF digestion, but it may not consistently alter the rate or extent of DM and NDF digestion.  (+info)

(3/3155) Cancer mortality in agricultural regions of Minnesota.

Because of its unique geology, Minnesota can be divided into four agricultural regions: south-central region one (corn, soybeans); west-central region two (wheat, corn, soybeans); northwest region three (wheat, sugar beets, potatoes); and northeast region four (forested and urban in character). Cancer mortality (1980-1989) in agricultural regions one, two, and three was compared to region four. Using data compiled by the National Center for Health Statistics, cancer mortality was summarized by 5-year age groups, sex, race, and county. Age-standardized mortality rate ratios were calculated for white males and females for all ages combined, and for children aged 0-14. Increased mortality rate ratios and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were observed for the following cancer sites: region one--lip (men), standardized rate ratio (SRR) = 2.70 (CI, 1.08-6.71); nasopharynx (women), SRR = 3.35 (CI, 1.20-9.31); region two--non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (women), SRR = 1.35 (CI, 1.09-1.66); and region three--prostate (men), SRR = 1.12 (CI, 1.00-1.26); thyroid (men), SRR = 2.95 (CI, 1.35-6.44); bone (men), SRR = 2.09 (CI, 1. 00-4.34); eye (women), SRR = 5.77 (CI, 1.90-17.50). Deficits of smoking-related cancers were noted. Excess cancers reported are consistent with earlier reports of agriculturally related cancers in the midwestern United States. However, reports on thyroid and bone cancer in association with agricultural pesticides are few in number. The highest use of fungicides occurs in region three. Ethylenebisdithiocarbamates, whose metabolite is a known cause of thyroid cancer in rats, are frequently applied. This report provides a rationale for evaluation of the carcinogenic potential of this suspect agent in humans.  (+info)

(4/3155) Organic: What's in a name?

The organic foods industry is booming: by one estimate, the market for organic foods is worth $4 billion annually and is expected to grow at a rate of more than 24% per year. Faced with the threat of pesticide exposures and other food safety problems, many consumers are turning to organic foods in hopes of finding a healthy alternative, but there is currently no consistency in organic food labeling and no guarantee that foods labeled as organic are actually grown and processed in a purely organic fashion. There is also controversy about whether the label "organic" covers such new technologies as irradiation and genetic engineering. As part of the 1990 Farm Bill, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is working to develop a proposed rule on organic foods. The rule would regulate the allowable methods, practices, and substances used in producing and handling crops and their processed products. The first draft of the proposed rule, released in December 1997, met with unprecedented opposition, which centered around the fact that the proposal appeared to virtually ignore the recommendations of a standards board formed to assist in the rule's development. Other criticism opposed three practices put forward for comment by the USDA: irradiation, genetic engineering, and the use of sewage sludge in farming. Due to the vehemence of the opposition to its original proposal, the USDA has decided to rewrite the proposed rule. In preparation for that proposal, the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service released three issue papers in October 1998 for public comment. The 10,000-plus comments received in response to those papers will be incorporated into the second draft proposal, due out later this year.  (+info)

(5/3155) Farm worker illness following exposure to carbofuran and other pesticides--Fresno County California, 1998.

In California, suspected pesticide-related illnesses and suspected work-related illnesses and injuries are reportable conditions. On July 31, 1998, the Occupational Health Branch of the California Department of Health Services (CDHS) received a report from the California Department of Pesticide Regulation (CDPR) of a pesticide exposure incident in Fresno County involving 34 farm workers. CDHS investigated this incident by reviewing medical records of the 34 workers and interviewing 29. The findings indicated that the workers became ill after early reentry into a cotton field that had been sprayed with a cholinesterase-inhibiting carbamate pesticides  (+info)

(6/3155) Caregiver behaviors and resources influence child height-for-age in rural Chad.

The purpose of this study was to identify caregiver characteristics that influence child nutritional status in rural Chad, when controlling for socioeconomic factors. Variables were classified according to the categories of a UNICEF model of care: caregiving behaviors, household food security, food and economic resources and resources for care and health resources. Sixty-four households with 98 children from ages 12 to 71 mo were part of this study. Caregivers were interviewed to collect information on number of pregnancies, child feeding and health practices, influence on decisions regarding child health and feeding, overall satisfaction with life, social support, workload, income, use of income, and household food expenditures and consumption. Household heads were questioned about household food production and other economic resources. Caregiver and household variables were classified as two sets of variables, and separate regression models were run for each of the two sets. Significant predictors of height-for-age were then combined in the same regression model. Caregiver influence on child-feeding decisions, level of satisfaction with life, willingness to seek advice during child illnesses, and the number of individuals available to assist with domestic tasks were the caregiver factors associated with children's height-for-age. Socioeconomic factors associated with children's height-for-age were the amount of harvested cereals, the sources of household income and the household being monogamous. When the caregiver and household socioeconomic factors were combined in the same model, they explained 54% of the variance in children's height-for-age, and their regression coefficients did not change or only slightly increased, except for caregiver's propensity to seek advice during child illnesses, which was no longer significant. These results indicate that caregiver characteristics influence children's nutritional status, even while controlling for the socioeconomic status of the household.  (+info)

(7/3155) Water pollution and human health in China.

China's extraordinary economic growth, industrialization, and urbanization, coupled with inadequate investment in basic water supply and treatment infrastructure, have resulted in widespread water pollution. In China today approximately 700 million people--over half the population--consume drinking water contaminated with levels of animal and human excreta that exceed maximum permissible levels by as much as 86% in rural areas and 28% in urban areas. By the year 2000, the volume of wastewater produced could double from 1990 levels to almost 78 billion tons. These are alarming trends with potentially serious consequences for human health. This paper reviews and analyzes recent Chinese reports on public health and water resources to shed light on what recent trends imply for China's environmental risk transition. This paper has two major conclusions. First, the critical deficits in basic water supply and sewage treatment infrastructure have increased the risk of exposure to infectious and parasitic disease and to a growing volume of industrial chemicals, heavy metals, and algal toxins. Second, the lack of coordination between environmental and public health objectives, a complex and fragmented system to manage water resources, and the general treatment of water as a common property resource mean that the water quality and quantity problems observed as well as the health threats identified are likely to become more acute.  (+info)

(8/3155) Predictors of crop diversification: a survey of tobacco farmers in North Carolina (USA).

OBJECTIVE: To assess the attitudes and behaviours of North Carolina tobacco farmers around crop diversification. DESIGN: Cross-sectional telephone survey. PARTICIPANTS: Active tobacco farmers in 14 North Carolina counties (n = 1236), interviewed between January and April 1997 (91% response rate). OUTCOME MEASURES: Interest in, experience with, and perceived barriers to diversification. RESULTS: Most farmers (95%) grew/raised a commodity other than tobacco (mean = 2.8). A total of 60% of farmers expressed interest in trying other on-farm activities to supplement their tobacco and 60% reported taking action in the past year around supplementation. Younger age and college education were positively associated with interest. College education, off-farm income, and larger farm size were associated with the number of actions taken. For perceived external barriers to diversification, use of tobacco, percent income from tobacco, lack of college education, and younger age were most strongly associated with the number of barriers. For internal barriers (personal factors), percent income from tobacco, use of tobacco, and lack of college education were most strongly associated with the number of barriers. CONCLUSIONS: Most farmers were involved in diverse operations and expressed interest in continuing to diversify, although the breadth of diversification was narrow. Farmers noted many barriers to diversifying. If conventional production and marketing techniques are employed for non-tobacco alternatives, these alternatives may not provide the sustainable profitability that tobacco has afforded. Competition from foreign tobacco growers is the primary threat to the future of American growers and tobacco dependent communities.  (+info)


What state has the largest animal agriculture?


I have to write an essay about the negative effects of animal agriculture but I have to be specific (geographically).
What state has the largest animal agriculture in the US?

More details about the topic would be great too!
Thank you.

It depends on the type of animal.

According to the Cattle Network, the state with the most cattle ranches is Texas, which has over twice as many head of cattle as number 2- Kansas.

The states which kill the most pigs are Iowa and North Carolina.
North Carolina, Minnesota and California kill the most turkeys.
Alabama, Arkansas and Georgia kill the most chickens.


What foods can represent light, agriculture, and truth?


I am doing a Greek mythology project and I need to have some food that represents the greek god Apollo. In my research he is the god of light, agriculture, and truth. There are going to be little kids eating the food so nothing weird or gross. They have to like it for extra credit points. A food idea I thought of was Sun Chips because he is the god of light. Please write down as many as you can think of! Thanks BUNCHES!
----------

i like the sun chips idea. you could cut cheese (american or cheddar) into small circles to represent the sun and then arrange the chips around the cheese so it looks like the sun's rays. maybe some grapes or strawberries to represent agriculture. i'm not sure about truth...you could play a little game and get small cups filled with apple juice (or some other kind of kid-friendly drink) and write "elixir of truth" on the cups and tell them that when they drink it, they will get Apollo's power to tell the truth. fun & a good lesson!


What are the most profitable agriculture businesses?


We are living on the east coast (right now in Virginia, but could move to upstate New York eventually). Just thinking about some agricultural business to get into.

How does the agriculture of fruits and vegetable affect the environment?


Is it any worse than the environmental impacts of the meat industry ?
----------

Ah, the old debate.  Yes, the "traditional"* method of farming fruits/vegetables IS harmful to the environment, having said that, the meat industry is much worse.  Why? Animals eat vegetables  (consider the fact that grains are technically a vegetable.) In order to produce one pound of edible beef from an animal you need 16 pounds of vegetable matter.  Therefore, because of this simple reason the meat industry is at least 16 times more harmful to the environment than grain farming.  There are other factors to consider, of course, but this makes things very simple to see.  

"Percentage of U.S. agricultural land used to produce beef: 56
Pounds of grain and soybeans needed to produce 1 pound of feedlot beef: 16
Pounds of protein fed to chickens to produce 1 pound of protein as chicken flesh: 5 pounds
Pounds of protein fed to hogs to produce 1 pound of protein as hog flesh: 7.5 pounds"

Now, I have heard that animal feed is of much lower grade than grains/legumes sold for human consumption, I don't disagree with this.  However, if every one started eating vegetarian tomorrow (not likely, I know) the world grain consumption would go down, not up, the lower grades of grain/legumes would not need to be produced, and the increase in demand for the higher quality grain/legume could be easily met by farmers.  

*by "traditional" I mean mono cropping, use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, tractor ploughing, slope ploughing, farming on hillsides, watersheds and lowland areas, slash and burn (still used in the USA,) intensive land cultivation, that have all been used extensively in the last 150 or so years

For more information on the impact of agriculture on the environment, please see my sources. I hope my answer helped.


What food to eat when working in the agriculture industry?


I have recently begun working in the strawberry industry, foremost including picking strawberries from the fields. The labor entails long hours out in the sun and continuous movement upward and downward. I would like to know about the proper foods to eat in order to maintain my energy high and allow me to continue doing this type of work for the summer.
----------

for some reason, working out in the sun diminishes my appetite.  have you felt low on energy.  are you allowed to eat some of the berries that you pick when you get hungry?  i'd eat what you would eat at your normal job.  when you need energy, your body will release it.  drink juice and the necessary amount of water.  fruits and good bread, mayb with avocado (you can also add tomato) or  with butter (peanut butter, almond butter).


Why does "registered with PA department of agriculture" appear on so many food products?


How widespread is this practice? Do food manufacturers in other countries have to do this (I read that once I think). Why is it done?

maybe because they want u 2 know its hwalthy


What do humans eat before the invention of agriculture, in the ice age?


Well it is a common misconception that the entire world was covered with a sheet of ice during the ice age.  In actuality, there were plenty of spots of open areas where fauna and many different kinds of plant life grew.  Agriculture is a relatively new development in human evolution, we spent most of our existence as Hunter Gatherers primarily eating plants, roots, seeds, and such.  We ate meat when we could get it there is plenty of evidence of Clovis points in faunal assemblages, so we did hunt and eat animals but not like in the 10,000 BC movie.  We did not hunt megafauna on a regular basis, we ate alot of small creatures like rabbit and we hunted alot of deer.

Fish wasn't big on our menu, fish have always been unreliable, salmon wont spawn for example, if the temperature of the water is as much as 2 degrees above the mean temperature.  Fish were an opportunistic thing, we ate them if they were available but we did not actively fish.


All about Organic stuff, for People who know agriculture?


What does Organic mean (exactly)?

Where can you find organic foods?

Who grows organic foods? Is it better for the environment?  Why or Why not?

Do organic foods taste better? ( opinion )

Are organic foods more or less expensive?

What are defined as non organic foods?

What do you think personally about organic foods?
----------

1. it means grown without pesticides and no hormonal growth. 2. any food store great place whole foods and most grocery stores have a section like stop and shop<3 3. its much better for the environment because its not going to kill roots and special farmers grow them 4. in my opinion YES YES YES! im a vegetarian so everything is organic u cant tell the difference but it just feels better 5. more expensive because it takes longer to grow because of no growth hormones 6. non organic food are defined as non organic foods haha 7. I THINK THERE AMAZING AND THAT THE ARE A BIG STEP TO HELPING AMERICA CHANGE!!! (for the good) hope this helps!
