We need you strong military...

US: First Lady encourages military to eat their greens..


Military canteens across the country will soon be serving more fruits and vegetables. This is a break from tradition that often sees high fat content foods being served to military personnel. 

The push for more fresh produce to be served to the armed forces is being made by First Lady, Michelle Obama, and is the first attempt in 20 years to improve the nutritional standards of the military. 

The First Lady made the announcement to this effect last week whilst touring Little Rock Air Force Base in Arkansas, where there have been experiments in improving nutritional content of meals already. 

"You all look really good, really fit," she told the airmen. "Thank you for eating your vegetables. We need you strong."

"Don't worry, you'll be a vegetable guy soon," she reassured one airman.

Mrs Obama pointed out that around a quarter of applicants for military service were too overweight to be appointed and the defence department spends in the region of $1 billion per annum in medical bills related to obesity. 

Mrs Obama told the military personnel that they were role models for the nation: 

"When you make healthy eating a priority in your lives, the rest of us are more likely to make it a priority in our lives," she told the airmen.

Tomatoes all year round

Thank to Nevada....we got tomatoes all year long.



It is now possible to grow tomatoes in January in northern Nevada. This has been demonstrated by the partnership of SunScience Corporation and the DoubleTree Ranch research facility in Lovelock, NV. 

Together they carried out a project aimed at significantly extending the growing season to achieve year round planting.

When presented with the first ripe tomato on January 29th, U.S. Congressman Mark Amodei said, "It's great to see SunScience bring a combination of technology, renewable resources and increased agriculture production to Nevada, and across the country."

By adopting the new SunScience EMS system growers will be able to reap two additional harvests, increase revenue, control greenhouse climate effectively, conserve water and, most importantly, produce local produce off season. 

As a result of this validation, SunScience's president Dick Kelsey is very optimistic, saying, "We're now able to launch a technology that is going to dramatically increase food production, and energy management globally. This is why we were just selected as 'Entrepreneur of the Year' by the Reno Gazette Journal."

Onions prevent obesity...



Onions aren't only healthy. They can even prevent obesity, according to lifestyle magazine 'Women's Health' in a recent edition. This data was shown in a topical scientific research carried out by 'The Journal of Nutrition' from he US. According to the research, onions have an inhibitory activity against inflammations in the body, which apparently occur through fat and unhealthy food and cause obesity. According to scientists the substance rutin is fore-mostly responsible for the beneficial effects from onions. The antioxidant effect ensures that excess pounds have no chance, says the lifestyle magazine.
