Consumer Reports recently advised against eating too much rice. Is this a new fad diet? Not exactly. Instead, limiting intake of rice will help cut back on that nasty habit of eating arsenic

As of today, Whole Foods
will no longer sell red rated fish
, and will sell only sustainable species. Some fishermen are fuming.
“It’s totally maddening,” Mr. Sanfilippo said. “They’re just doing it to make all the green people happy.”

In January 2005
, someone using the name "Rahodeb" went online to a Yahoo stock-market forum and posted this opinion: "No company would want to buy Wild Oats Markets Inc., a natural-foods grocer, at its price then of about $8 a share." Who was that random fool? Why, none other than John Mackey, co-founder and CEO of Whole Foods. Whole Foods purchased Wild Oats
earlier this year for approximately $18.50 a share, but the FTC has an issue with Whole Foods buying out their competitor
. Mackey had responded to the FTC's complaint on his blog
, but has not posted since some of his other
online comments became publicly attached to his name.

Whole Foods takes London
. This South Kensington flagship store is the "quasi-messianic" company's biggest ever,
comprising 80,000 square feet spread out over three floors offering 10,000 grocery items. In true American style
, shoppers can choose from 1,000 different wines, 425 cheeses, 40 types of sausage, 55 in-store chefs, a pub called The Bramley, a sushi bar, a champagne and oyster bar and a DJ-booth to play music for late-night shoppers. The locals seem overwhelmed by it all.

So with global warming being linked to all sorts of bad things lately
, and our illustrious leaders doing nothing about the problem
because they don't want to slow down the economy, its good to see someone doing something about the problem
, Whole Foods is the first fortune 500 company to go 100% green. And I for one am happy as a clam. This just goes to show you that you can have a wonderful, profitable business, without raping the earth, your customers, or your employees.
