HotAIR - MAY WE RECOMMEND -- Food-Based Nutrition


Food-Based Nutrition

Items that merit your attention

by Alice Shirrell Kaswell, AIR staff

An intriguingly mysterious FDA logo pertaining to food and nutrition information

We have just recently become aware of the concept of Food-Based Nutrition. While we expect it will take months or years before we ourselves truly understand the basics of this important field of research, some of our readers, advanced in the study of 21st, 22nd, and 23rd century nutrition, might benefit from access to current research on this topic.

Therefore, may we recommend:

The New Hope Institute of Retailing, which has issued a series of reports about Food-Based Nutrition as it applies to brain nutrients, soy foods, liver health, children's nutrition, food allergies, and other fascinating specialties.

Dr. Antigone Kouris-Blazos, whose explication of the concept of food-based nutrition has enjoyed a certain vogue on the continent.

Dr. Bernard Jenson, whose pioneering work on food-based nutrition -- and particularly on Tissue-Cleansing Through Bowel Management, has enjoyed a similarly certain vogue on the continent.

Joan Anderson, who is a Vassar graduate, holder of a California Lifetime Teaching Certificate, schooled in the Julia Child tradition of gourmet cooking, is a proponent of Food-Based Nutrition, and has lived 30 years in California

The MegaFood company, which has pioneered the trademarking of the phrase "FoodBased Nutrition."

Vitanet, creators of the explanation that: "Women's One Multivitamin Tabs is food-based nutrition for women with Dong Quai, Red Clover, and Soy Isoflavones."
[EDITOR'S NOTE: We would appreciate hearing from any AIR reader who can explain to us the simple meaning of this explanation.]

A Light Alternative

What, many people ask, is the alternative to Food-Based Nutrition? There is more than one alternative, of course. But the one that leaps to mind is Breatherianism, the nutritional system which explains that although some people do eat food, they don't ever really need to. These days, the leading light and leading lady of Breatherianism is Jasmuheen (formerly known as Ellen Greve) of Australia. Jasmuheen's first-person diet book "Living on Light" won for her the 2000 Ig Nobel Prize in Literature.

Jasmuheen's prize-winning book

For those who prefer nutritionists of lesser glamor, I can but recommend venerable Wiley Brooks, who is officially known as "the World Famous Founder of The Breatharian Institute of America." (He is not to be confused -- at least I think he is not to be confused -- with the Wiley Brooks who is officially known as the "founder of the issue-oriented public relations agency that bears his name.")

For Further Info

Inquiries as to the public health effects of food, nutrition, Food-Based Nutrition, or anything else should be addressed to the US Food and Drug Administration.
