We do our very best to touch on as much of the health- and environment-related news that we can from across the web, but there are always stories we don’t get to. Here’s a quick roundup of food news from the last week or so that we didn’t manage to hit on:
- Plumpy’nut. Jonathan Banco at Inspired Economist looks at the pros and cons of this product aimed at fighting world hunger.
- Corporate interests and food safety. Planet Green reveals how large food corporations influence the FDA’s food policy.
- Reuse old coffee grounds. Before tossing those grounds into the compost bin, take a look at these 16 uses from The Good Human!
- The rise and fall of bottled water. Sustainablog’s Shel Horowitz talks about the history of the bottled water business.
- Reprieve for threatened Russian seed bank! Remember that Russian seed bank that was in danger from developers? Michael Ricciardi at Planetsave has some possible good news.
