We’re not taking away anybody’s right to do things, we’re simply forcing you to understand that you have to make the conscious decision to go from one cup to another cup. NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg • Speaking on MSNBC about his proposed ban on soft-drink containers bigger than 16 ounces. “The idea here is, you tend to eat all the food in the container in front of you,” he continued. “If it’s a bigger container, you eat more. If somebody put it in a smaller glass or plate or bowl in front of you, you would eat less.” For what it’s worth, many large food companies, such as Coke and McDonald’s, are on the attack in the wake of the proposed ban.

“People in Brazil still talk bitterly about the Brits stealing their rubber seeds and planting them in Asia,” Mr. Mann said. “Brazilians will denounce this horrible ‘bio-piracy’ while they’re standing in front of fields of bananas and coffee — plants that originated in Africa.” Two other leading crops in Brazil, soybeans and sugar, he noted, are from Asia. Really interesting article on a new book about the origins and trading of food, and how ultimately, locavore is a myth.
