Caffeine doesn't have to come in coffee form anymore.

While we all may love black coffee, you don’t necessarily have to get your caffeine fix in a mug anymore.   Tom Hall talks with nutritionist Monica Reinagel, the Nutrition Diva, about AeroShot, which allows you to snort caffeine–it’s now being examined by the FDA.

They also discuss how a Pennsylvania dairy reacted after distributing raw milk that made people sick.  You can learn more about consuming raw milk and cheese from this earlier nutrition segment.

    I just want to comment on the discussion you had with the nutritionist who talked about the Raw Milk issue. When she said there is no real benefit to raw milk that is absolutely not true (I believe she said it is has no nutritional benefits – that may or may not be true depending on who is doing the checking). Much of the regular milk on the grocery shelf has added hormones unless it is otherwise marked and many people do not want that extra hormone. Raw milk does not have added hormones. In addition, when you pasturize milk, it destroys the enzymes in it – that is why some people cannot digest it. Unless you have a milk allergy, most people who are lactose intolerant tolerate raw milk because it has the enzymes to help digest the milk. Leaving that information out equates to deception in my book. I wish people would be honest, even if they don’t agree with raw milk being sold. I coach people to eat well and most people are not aware of what is done to food before it gets to the grocery. I suggest WYPR do some homework before a guest comes on – many times so-called experts give their opinion more than all the facts surrounding it, especially if the other facts don’t agree with their beliefs. We should have heard from a representative of the Raw Food group as well.

    This is farther evidence that there is an overt war on food! it is important that we make a public out cry about our food and who controls it, The more we press congress and the corporations that they protect, the more power we have to create a movement a change.
