Media request from Trent Loos of Loos Tales:

I host several radio programs that air throughout the country in fact in 19 states. Most stations quit honestly though are West of the Mississippi River not all but most.

I would like a ten minute conversation with Chancellor Walcott about the announcement of PS 244 offering only vegetarian menu at school.

While I am not looking for anything other than a respectful conversation I will take issue with the announcement sharing a bit of science indicating that this is not wise for the health of the children. Again I am looking for a discussion not a beating and am very opened mind and my listeners expect this type of respectful discussion on my programs.

As a heads up this is one piece of science that I believe is worthy of the discussion.

Kids who eat meat are smarter

From the The European Journal of Epidemiology

Some evidence exists to suggest there may be an association between childhood nutrition and cognitive function, although this is largely limited to studies on young children, where animal protein intake has been positively associated with earlier walking in infants and dietary supplementation with meat in infants and children in developing countries associated with better cognitive function up to school age, independent of iron status. Protein energy supplementation from non-meat sources (vegetables, milk and sugar) given from birth to 24 months in developing populations has been positively associated with cognitive function in early adulthood (mean age 32 years), especially in women.

How long will it take for “professionals” to understand FAT?

Trans fats raise cholesterol, not blood sugar: study

Researchers, writing in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found that both blood sugar and insulin, the hormone that keeps blood sugar levels in check, were similar regardless of how much trans fat people ate.

Milk does the body good….I mean real good

Chocolate Milk Gives Athletes Leg-up After Exercise, Says University of Texas at Austin Study

AUSTIN, Texas — Not only does chocolate milk taste good, but two recent studies from The University of Texas at Austin show that it’s also the ideal post-workout recovery drink.

“Serious and amateur athletes alike enjoyed physical recovery benefits when they drank low-fat chocolate milk after a vigorous workout,” said Dr. John Ivy, lead researcher on the studies and chair of The University of Texas at Austin College of Education’s Department of Kinesiology and Health Education. “The advantages for the study participants were better body composition in the form of more muscle and less fat, improved times while working out and overall better physical shape than peers who consumed sports beverages that just contained carbohydrates.”

Local schools are also better equipped than the federal government to network with area farmers and ranchers to supply foods, another goal of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act.
