In the news, we hear wheat farmers react to Bill O'Reilly's suggestion that the United States government sponsor a "Beware of Wheat" public service announcement. New York City's health panel considers banning large sodas...and more. We discuss what the meat industry is feeding cattle. Where does your Vitamin C come from? There was 'anti-freeze' in some cereals when they were pulled from the shelves. What does it mean when a product claims that it is 'natural' on its label? We talk about how Americans are spending their grocery dollars and whether the Paleo Diet could be the answer for the future. Finally, a new study looks at mental illness and vegetarianism. In Paleo Land, Marks Daily Apple tells us how we can potentially answer questions about the primal or Paleo approach. The Moment of Paleo is about The Race to the Bottom, as it relates to food. There are two After the Bell segments this week.
