It’s Time for a Delicious Revolution
By Dr. Alan Greene
Konrad Lorenz made his mark by studying a special type of learning where key exposures during a critical and sensitive window of development can have a lasting influence – a process he called imprinting. The famous example of this is imprinting in geese. Newly hatched goslings are programmed to follow the first moving objects they see. They quickly become imprinted on this object and will move their little feet fast to keep up with it. This is highly adaptive. Most of the time. Usually this moving magnet is the gosling’s mother.

Lorenz showed, however, that if he were the first mover that a gosling saw, it would be imprinted on Lorenz and follow him about, refusing to follow a goose. A goose could even imprint on a toy train and ignore other geese, even its own mother. Later, as adults, these geese would even choose toy trains for their life partners (which didn't work out well for the geese -- or the trains). Lorenz won the Nobel Prize for this work in 1973.
We’ve known for at least thirty years from animal studies that very early flavor experiences change which foods will later be preferred. Within five years of Lorenz’s Nobel Prize, food imprinting had already been demonstrated in snapping turtles, chickens, gulls, dogs, and cats.
Human babies also learn by imprinting, though ours is more complex, more forgiving, and occurs during a longer critical window. In particular human babies imprint on food. This is a highly adaptive mechanism -- but in the second half of the twentieth century we have unwittingly imprinted our children on the wrong tastes and textures. They will chase after junk food and kids meals, and ignore a delicious, ripe peach or tomato packed with nutrients their bodies crave.
Feeding Baby Green unveils the key windows of opportunities for our children, and how the imprinting occurs using not just taste but all of the senses, from pregnancy through age 2 (and beyond -- with a final chapter giving an overview up to age 9).
At its core, Feeding Baby Green is a revolutionary approach to cultivating Nutritional Intelligence, the age-appropriate ability to recognize and enjoy healthy amounts of great food. Pregnancy and the first two years of life are critical windows for learning Nutritional Intelligence, an important, newly described strand of development. Most American kids of the last few decades are Nutritionally Delayed. Thankfully, this is easy to remedy.
I think I'm getting hungry: let's go eating some babies
Beijing Protests Berlusconi Baby Comments Associated Press - March 28, 2006 ROME (AP) -- Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi said communists in Mao's China boiled babies for fertilizer, prompting Beijing to express ''strong indignation'' Tuesday over the comments. Italy's Foreign Ministry, seeking to limit the damage, said the premier's words were a reference to ''episodes that took place in the past,'' and stressed that Berlusconi did not intend to stoke tension with China. Berlusconi, who is running in an April 9-10 election against center-left leader Romano Prodi, has a history of getting into trouble for speaking his mind. In 2003, he told a German lawmaker in the European Parliament that he should appear in a movie as a Nazi concentration camp guard. The conservative premier, who has made a habit of lashing out against communism, made the latest comments Sunday at an election rally in Naples. ''They accuse me of having said over and over that the communists eat babies. Read The Black Book of Communism and you will discover that in Mao's China, the communists didn't eat babies, but they boiled them to fertilize the fields,'' Berlusconi said. ''The Black Book of Communism'' is an 846-page history of communism by six academics that was published in 1997. It concluded that communism -- through deportations and famine, labor camps and executions -- killed at least 85 million people in the Soviet Union, China, Cambodia and elsewhere. In one section recounting China's repression against peasants in 1959, the Italian edition of the book states ''the blunders of the repression were terrifying: systematic torture of thousands of detainees, children killed, boiled and then used as fertilizer.'' The Foreign Ministry's statement listed the page where the passage could be found. Berlusconi reiterated the point late Tuesday. ''I spoke of something from 50 years ago. It's a historic fact. It cannot be denied,'' he said on a TV talk show. Prodi, whose coalition includes Communists, seized the opportunity to accuse Berlusconi of discrediting Italy's reputation abroad. ''Do you realize what kind of an image is reflected by a country whose premier says such a thing?'' Prodi was quoted as saying by Italian news agencies. The Chinese embassy in Rome ''expressed strong indignation for the unfounded words of Premier Silvio Berlusconi.'' An embassy statement said China hoped instead ''the words and actions of Italian leaders can favor the development and stability of bilateral relations between China and Italy.'' Berlusconi has often portrayed himself as communism's most strident opponent. In February, he compared himself to the wartime British prime minister, saying ''I fight against communism the way (Winston) Churchill fought against Nazism.'' Berlusconi, a cruise ship singer in his youth and Italy's richest man, is known for his outlandish, headline-grabbing comments, which occasionally have proven offensive to other countries or cultures. In 2003, Berlusconi told German socialist Martin Schulz, ''Mr. Schulz, I know there is a producer in Italy who is making a film on the Nazi concentration camps. I will suggest you for the role of `kapo.' You'd be perfect.'' ''Kapo'' is a German word that was used in Nazi concentration camps for privileged prisoners who guarded other inmates. His comment led to a diplomatic spat with Germany. Berlusconi expressed ''regret'' but would not apologize. In December 2001, during a European Union summit in Belgium, Berlusconi tried to lobby for the Italian city of Parma to house a new EU food safety agency amid competition from Finland, which wanted the agency's headquarters to be in Helsinki. ''Parma is synonymous with good cuisine. The Finns don't even know what prosciutto is. I cannot accept this,'' Berlusconi was quoted as saying. At a news conference in Berlin a few weeks after Sept. 11, 2001, Berlusconi said Western civilization was superior to Islam -- breaking ranks with the United States and other allies at a time they were trying to reach out to the Muslim world.The Dingos ate my baby!
