Some food news

Eating local just got much easier or harder, depending on your point of view. Personally, I’m not too thrilled with the idea of large corporations saying they produce local food, but I do like the idea of transparency in understanding where your food is grown.

I also have become skeptical of the value of taking vitamins, although I have to confess that’s partly because I just hate taking gigantic pills. I just learned that taking vitamins may interfere with the benefits of exercise, though, so perhaps I’ll just continue to not take them.
