the best posts of 2013 (part 2)

15th Janurary 2013: Food Safety Authorities in Ireland discovered (not by accident!) horse meat in burgers, the biggest food scandal not only for 2013 but for ...years! At the end of 2013, the competent (sic!) authorities in Europe have NOT imposed any fines to the companies using tainted beef meat with horse meat...Are these authorities competent to protect Public Health?

In this 2nd part of 2013's review, le'ts have a look to some posts in English on Science, Food and Environment.

1.Horse meat, phenylbutazone and the Precautionary principle

2. Heavy metals in baby food

3. Article on Sunday’s edition of “TO ETHNOS” on horse food scandal

4. TV interview on NET 

and some (more scientific) posts on the research of our team in the Univ. of Athens

5. Inflammation is the key (upd)

6. Evaluation of Sensory and in Vitro Cardio Protective Properties of Sardine (Sardina pilchardus): The Effect of Grilling and Brining

7.Evaluation of the in Vitro Anti-Atherogenic Properties of Lipid Fractions of Olive Pomace, Olive Pomace Enriched Fish Feed and Gilthead Sea Bream (Sparus aurata) Fed with Olive Pomace Enriched Fish Feed

2014 is going to be an interesting year!

Our work on novel sea bream and sea bass is coming to fruition and these products should be commercially available in 2014.

On the other hand, our quest for combining cardioprotection and food security is growing stronger with some interesting collaborations forming up in Scotland, Serbia, England and Norway; watch this space!

Happy New Year to all of you!

May 2014 bring you and your beloved ones, Health, Love and Joy!


p.s.  the 2014 message from Whitney

Sometimes life can make you crazy
It can really put your body to the test
You try so hard to make sure everything goes right
And you find you've only wound up with a mess
It's a common situation
Even though you feel abandoned and alone
Child, you ain't the first to experience the hurt
So don't panic when you hit the danger zone


What you need's a little change of heart
Forget this fear and frustration
Love will always play the greater part
When your battles wear you down
Here's my advice -
When you're feeling down and out
And you've got troubles on you mind
Love will save the day
When you're feeling full of doubt
And fear has got you in a bind
Love will save the day
When your worlds falling apart
All you have to do is say a prayer
And love will save the day
There's an answer in your heart
So let your light shine on my dear
And love will save the day
Love will save the day [X4]

Many things in this world bring you down
It's a wonder you can make it through the day
Well, you can't sleep cause your problems are to deep
And there's always something getting in the way
And when you turn on the evening news
Mass confusion is the only thing you see
Well there's no question that we need a new direction
Cause we all could use some peace and harmony


Love is gonna save the day
You've gotta believe it
