The rocker's Dad has a sweet deal for you if you buy his pasta sauce...
(OrganicJar) Here's a list of the top 10 foods which lowers the "bad" LDL cholesterol, while leaving the "good" HDL largely unaffected. Are YOU eating them?
#1 Monounsaturated and Polyunsaturated Fats (Olive Oil, Peanut Oil, Peanuts, Olives, Avocados)
Cholesterol Reduction: 18%
Substituting saturated animal fats and other high cholesterol foods with healthier fats like olive oil, peanut oil, and avocados is the most powerful thing you can do to achieve a drastic reduction in your LDL cholesterol. Specifically a diet high in olive and sunflower oil, that contains 12.9% saturated fat, 15.1% monounsaturated fat, and 7.9% polyunsaturated fat can achieve an 18% reduction in LDL cholesterol vs people on a diet higher in saturated fat.
#2 Bran (Oat, Rice)
Cholesterol Reduction: 7-14%
Bran, particularly oat bran, has been proven effective in lowering LDL cholesterol levels. Add bran to hot cereals and bread. Also, eating whole oatmeal every morning, or switching to whole products like brown rice, can help you get more bran in your diet and lower your cholesterol numbers.
#3 Flax Seeds
Cholesterol Reduction: 8-14%
Up to 50 grams of flax seeds a day has been shown to reduce LDL cholesterol in healthy young adults by up to 8%, and 38 grams of flax seeds per day reduced LDL cholesterol by 14% in people with high cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia). In both studies the flax seeds where consumed in a muffin or other bread product. Flax seeds are easily incorporated in baked goods, as well as added to hot cereals like oatmeal.
Cholesterol Reduction: 9-12%
Studies have shown that less than half a clove (900mg) of raw garlic a day can lower cholesterol by 9-12%. Raw garlic is best and can be added to olive oil salad dressings, or as a garnish on soups and sandwiches.

I came across Seed Savers Exchange at the Green Festival, they are perfect for anyone who has a garden or is thinking of having one. Here you can either exchange seeds that you have too many of or, if you don't have any to exchange, you can buy seeds from others! What a great idea. They started this non-profit organization about 35 years ago in order to help farmers grow and save seeds, so they started a group of people who would grow each others seeds as a back up system. The organization grew so much that they got into a point where they needed to keep the seeds in one place, so they started a seed bank and began releasing a catalog to support the seed exchange. Today they have over 13,000 members across the country and every year they release a new catalog with a listing of all varieties their members want to share with people. You can also find the list and buy seeds on their website.
They have several kinds of seeds in their catalog, including vegetables, herbs and flowers.
I also came across a very cool program they launched called "Sell seeds instead of candy bars!". Here's a quick intro to it: Seed Savers has developed a new fundraising program as a healthy, sustainable alternative to other school fundraising programs. Benefit your school, your students, and the gardening public. Give children seeds to sell and they will grow, too, in the process. Seeds to Grow is a project of Seed Savers Exchange that promotes heirloom gardening.
A little story about them, from their site:
Seed Savers Exchange is a non-profit organization that saves and shares the heirloom seeds of our garden heritage, forming a living legacy that can be passed down through generations.
Our mission is to save North America's diverse, but endangered, garden heritage for future generations by building a network of people committed to collecting, conserving and sharing heirloom seeds and plants, while educating people about the value of genetic and cultural diversity.
At the heart of Seed Savers Exchange are the dedicated members who have distributed hundreds of thousands of heirloom and open pollinated garden seeds since our founding 35 years ago. Those seeds now are widely used by seed companies, small farmers supplying local and regional markets, chefs and home gardeners and cooks, alike.
Seed Savers Exchange was founded in 1975 by Diane Ott Whealy and Kent Whealy to honor this tradition of preserving and sharing. Their collection started when Diane's terminally-ill grandfather gave them the seeds of two garden plants, Grandpa Ott's morning glory and German Pink tomato. Grandpa Ott's parents brought the seeds from Bavaria when they immigrated to St. Lucas, Iowa in the 1870s.
Today, the 890-acre Heritage Farm, near Decorah, Iowa, is our home. We maintain many thousands of heirloom garden varieties, most having been brought to North America by members' ancestors who emigrated from Europe, the Middle East, Asia and other parts of the world.
Unlike Fort Knox, Heritage Farm is not surrounded by security fences and guards. Our perimeter is patrolled by bald eagles, red-tailed hawks, deer, raccoons and other wildlife. The farm is ringed by hiking trails that take visitors through majestic scenery, past our certified organic preservation gardens, historic orchard and ancient White Park Cattle.
They even give tours of their farm. Way to go Seed Savers Exchange!More info and links here: http://www.ecobold.com/seed-savers-exchange/ I came... more
A great photograph and story for Friday, from reading the article I'm unsure if the Belfast mayor was meant to be jumping over a woman dressed as a giant Tomato or even why it was a good idea. Only reasoning it gave was 'the photographers thought it would be a good idea'
Whatever the reason, the Belfast city council worker has been paid a settlement of £24,000 for a slipped disc after Jim Rodgers hit her head with his knee when trying to jump over her.
"Mr Rodgers said he was confident he could have made the vault.
He said: "I'm very fit and look after myself, but it was just one of those unfortunate things." "-BBCA great photograph and story for Friday, from reading the article I'm unsure if... more
The infoMania office has been blessed with a well-stocked kitchen. They have produce, cold cuts, and soup. Unfortunately the can opener hasn't been seen since mid-June. The mountains of canned soup, haven't been accessed since.
This adversity, was not going to stop Brett Erlich. You see, Mr. Erlich, had an insatiable desire for soup "I was hungry, and the weather conditions made me want soup." When he found out that there wasn't a can opener he uttered "uhhhhg (that's four h's and one g)" out of pure sadness.
Needing warm sustenance, he put his mind to work. "My mind is not sharp, I mean only metaphorically not physically" recounts the Rotten Tomatoes Show host "but I came up with thoughts, thoughts that led me to use this knife, to stab that can."
The can opened! He was elated. Then terror struck again. He realized he couldn't remove the contents. The soup would remain at room temperature forever! That's when more Erlich ingenuity kicked in. Using an ice cream scoop, he was able to fully open the can, and pour its contents into a bowl.
Today Mr. Erlich is living the good life, eating organic tomato soup with a biodegradable spoon. This is just another lesson in the brilliance of the human mind.The infoMania office has been blessed with a well-stocked kitchen. They have produce,... more

Yet another reason to switch to organic foods. Take a look at what I cut in to this last weekend, a tomato with frankenstein bumps and then a whole world of funk. If you look close enough you can see the seedling popping through the top of the tomato. I'm guessing that the tomato was so genetically modified that it simply couldn't rot and the seeds started to take off. OR this is just simply a mutant tomato, they all were like this though.

WASHINGTON—In preparation for her debate with Sen. Joe Biden next week, Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin met with seasoned statesman and Nobel Peace Prize–winner Henry Kissinger yesterday to take advantage of his extensive foreign policy knowledge and expertise in carpet-bombing innocent civilians in nations with which the U.S. is not officially at war.
"Dr. Kissinger has given Gov. Palin thorough instructions for launching deadly covert military operations in tiny Southeast Asian countries in blatant disregard for human life and international law," said McCain campaign spokesperson Tracey Schmitt of Palin's brief consultation with the Nixon and Ford administrations' former secretary of state and national security adviser. "In addition, the governor now feels completely confident that, if she is ever required to step in for Sen. McCain to mastermind the toppling of a democratically elected but left-leaning South American government without congressional consent, she will be fully prepared."
Sources close to the campaign said that Palin's meeting with Vice President Cheney about how to claim executive supremacy for the purpose of bypassing constitutional limits on torture has been canceled since advisers feel she already has enough personal experience with the subject
