Tomatoes have become a dietary staple for humans in many parts of the world. The characteristic deep red color of the ripe tomato fruit and related products is mainly due to lycopene. Lycopene is the predominant carotenoid in tomatoes, followed by a-carotene, b-carotene, g-carotene, and phytoene, as well as by several other minor carotenoids. Tomatoes and tomato-based foods have long been an important source of lycopene in the Western diet.

Private ranchers survived the Mexican Revolution and the era of agrarian reforms, and they continue to play key roles in the ecology and economy of northern Mexico.In this study of the Río Sonora region of northern Mexico, where ranchers own anywhere from several hundred to tens of thousands of acres, Eric Perramond evaluates management techniques, labor expenditures, gender roles, and decision-making on private ranches of varying size. By examining the economic and ecological dimensions of daily decisions made on and off the ranch he shows that, contrary to prevailing notions, ranchers rarely collude as a class unless land titles are at issue, and that their decision-making is as varied as the landscapes they oversee.T

A fascinating tour through the evolution of the human diet, and how we can improve our health by understanding our complicated history with food.
There are few areas of modern life that are burdened by as much information and advice, often contradictory, as our diet and health: eat a lot of meat, eat no meat; whole-grains are healthy, whole-grains are a disaster; eat everything in moderation; eat only certain foods–and on and on. In One Hundred Million Years of Food biological anthropologist Stephen Le explains how cuisines of different cultures are a result of centuries of evolution, finely tuned to our biology and surroundings.

This demonization of the overweight by the media and politicians is unrelenting. Sarah Boseley, the Guardian’s award-winning health editor, argues it’s time we understood the complex reality of what makes us fat. Speaking to behavioral scientists and industry experts, yo-yo dieters and people who have gone under the knife, Boseley builds a picture of an obesogenic society – one where we’re constantly bombarded by the twin evils of big budget food marketing and the diet industry. Filled with in-depth, original reporting, Boseley reveals just how widespread the problem is – 1 in 4 of us are obese – and makes the case that it is time to fundamentally change the way we live.

Mycotoxins are fungal secondary metabolites that may be found in human foods and animal feeds. These compounds belong to families of organic molecules that share no significant properties other than the ability to confer death, disease, and misery on humans and other animals that consume them. Mycotoxins, and the fungi that synthesize them, frequently are detected by discoloration or other symptoms of fungal growth, but insidious contamination where the infected foodstuff appears normal to the eye is a significant problem.
