  1. Campaign Summary: After bisphenol A was banned for use in baby plastic bottles, it was replaced by other bisphenols (S or F) which are not less toxic or even worse. I am highly concerned by this problem and would like to know what producer really cares about little consumers. Therefore I propose to test baby food packaging for endocrine disruptors (mainly bisphenols, nonylphenols, and phtalates, but would be great to know as much as possible about other toxins too). Parents and those who are only going to have a baby, please be active and vote for this proposal. It relates to any of us and to the next generations. Let's make this world a bit safer for them!
  2. What is cholesterol?

    gespalding, you want too much to fit into one place. If you want such a detailed info on mechanisms by which food and sport affect cholesterol levels, use references and read scientific articles. I'm confident you'll find what you seek there.

Campaign Summary: How dangerous supermarket own-label products packaging is to the environment, let's audit the big business and voice the truth how much each of them really does care about the planet?

  4. The risks and benefits of eating farmed vs. wild salmon

    Judging by article, wild salmon is not much more healthier, it is only a little bit better, but the difference is not so considerable. It can be that other studies will show that farmed is healthier than wild - it depends on a lot of factors (season, weather, amount of pollutants in water, etc.) which vary from year to year. So, it may be that one year wild is better and another - farmed is better. 
  5. Risks and benefits of Honey vs. Sugar

    Unfortunately, honey is not so good. It contains allergens and not everyone can consume it and experience all its benefits. 
  6. Artificial sweeteners: low in calories, high in harm

    Regarding natural alternatives, are there any sweet substances beside sugar and honey? I wonder if there is natural alternatives sweter than honey and sugar.
