This Thanksgiving, remember our commitment to address regional poverty

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Tue, 11/23/2004 - 03:21.

Facing the embarrassment of being rated the most impoverished large city in America, Cleveland community leaders became vocal looking for solutions. The following NYTimes editorial indicates we stand out in thinking about this issue at all, as 12 million American families are largely ignored in their struggles for enough to eat. Being ranked worst in poverty drove us to some higher consciousness, offering us the opportunity to address serious problems, if we expand the dialogue and act on good words. Have you thought about our chronic poverty lately? Thanksgiving is an excellent day to talk about that, so we may do more for those who are suffering before the new year.

TAKE ACTION: Support Organic & Local Food Champions... #1 is Basketeria in West Side Market

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Sun, 11/21/2004 - 20:26.

Processed and industry-grown food harm body
and Earth, and most supposedly fresh food travels over 1,500 miles to reach us,
at great harm to the environment. Enlightened NEO shoppers seek outlets for eco-friendly
food - ideally organic and locally grown. While our choices are limited, the
Champions below work untiringly to improve our lot. Support them, and help seed
sustainable developments in the food "industry" for a healthier
future for all. You can support the *winner* by shopping at the West Side
Market - their stand is in the short wing of the produce stand, by the flowers
- support all these champions, thank them, and spread the word!

REI Director Ed Morrison describes Economic Development as beginning with the unborn child, which recognizes important issues like reducing unplanned pregnancies, delivering world-class prenatal care, providing excellent early child-care and education, insuring great nutrician for children and protecting them from health hazards like lead exposure, and becoming outspoken to educate our community on the importance of breast-feeding, as mentioned today on Brewed Fresh Daily in a posting from Sandy Kristin Piderit, explained in detail on her LiveJournal blog - contact Sandy for more info

Want smart workers in NEO? Consider "High-fat diet could harm the brain"

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Fri, 10/29/2004 - 10:01.

While not obviously ED related, it is worth considering the following
study linking high fat diets - especially those high in trans-fats - to
learning problems. My conclusion - stay far away from trans-fats, and
keep NEO kids trans-fat free, for the sake of a better learning
workforce for the future... and there is clearly opportunity for any
region and foods related business to lead and prosper from excelling in the healthy food sectors...
