After years of confusion about eating seafood during pregnancy, a respected and knowledgeable nutrition voice is helping to clear the air.
In this morning’s USA Today the paper reports on Greenpeace’s flawed and oft ignored retailer rankings. But what’s caught my eye about the piece is not what they write but who is writing. It would appear to be Kim O'Donnel, perhaps the same Kim O’Donnel who used to write for the Washington Post.
The gall of NFI … not being afraid of Greenpeace. How dare NFI not cower in the corner at the specter of teenage volunteers clad in rainbow gear disagreeing with us, while their fearless captains sit firmly ensconced behind a $300,000,000 budget back at the Hall of Justice.
The horror, the horror.
Did Johnson have it wrong, and the last refuge of a scoundrel is running from the facts? Once again Greenpeace whacks away indiscriminately in hopes that people will get caught up in its style and ignore its lack of substance.
Greenpeace’s retailer rankings have grown into a groundhog day of sorts and have led consumers to, by in large, simply ignore them. Likewise, despite the new stance by Greenpeace that has the group lauding all of the apparent progress that propels the rather random reordering of stores on the list, perhaps these days even retailers get it that far more Americans know who Snookie is than have any idea that Greenpeace ranks retailers based on their seafood sourcing policy.
There’s been a lot of hand wringing in the media lately about seafood from Japan. You know, the seafood t hat makes up a total of less than 1 tenth of 1 percent of the seafood we eat in the United States.
