THE BIG I: Making Better Food Choices

If you have any kind of dietary restriction, or if you're at all leery about what's in the food at your favorite restaurants, there is new technology out there that could change your eating habits and your life.  Its called Usable Health and its being developed by researchers at the GVU Center at Georgia Institute of Technology.

To check out Usable Health, click here.

This technology will be highlighted at FutureMedia Fest 2010 in October.  For more information on the fest, click here.

    This technology has a great potential to help people with many different goals or problems. My wife has severe food allergies and has to scrutinize ingredients on every item she eats or drinks, so we eat out very rarely. This program could go a long way to helping people with this affliction to eat out more. Although food allergies weren't mentioned in the story, I would hope the good folks at CNN will mention this aspect to the folks at Georgia Tech.

    I have diet controled diabetes, and sodium restricted high blood pressure. I couldn't find any meals that meet the goals that the certified diabetic nutrition specialist has set for me.

    although I am not limited to any specific diet. I am picky about what I eat in fact have recently found a ranch store, that sell individual cuts of meat (grass finished Bison & grass finished Beef, pork & chicken). no Hormones etc are used as this is a small family ranch. the cost is not much more than a standard grocery store. But The Health benefits are there. & it is all flash frozen in Vacuum sealed bags. I will be rarely shopping at the grocery store for meat.
