I visited one of the Houston 'Whole Foods' stores recently, and this place is just remarkable. Almost every thing that I wish I could find at my local grocers (HEB, Walmart, Kroger, etc) I can find at Whole Food. Their selection of meats, including grass fed beef, is amazing. I sampled a chicken noodle soup and was just blown away, not only by how good it was, but that I could find a tasty chicken noodle soup without hydrogenated oils, msg, hydrolized additives, preservatives or nitrates (take note, Campbells... and even your supposedly "natural" soups still have "yeast extract".... the same thing as MSG. Take out ALL the MSG and I'll start buying your soups again.)

Here's a good article on differing opinions over the health dangers of high fructose corn syrup:
High-Fructose Corn Syrup and Diabetes: What the Experts Say
I avoid the stuff as much as possible, but it can be difficult since the stuff is everywhere.
Yahoo! Health had a good article on the health benefits of berries. I'm glad to read this, as lately berries have been on sale at the grocery store, so we've been loading up on these and enjoying them greatly with breakfast.
My kids drink an unnatural amount of ketchup with food (which doesn't say much about my cooking) which was why it was such great news to find that HEB, the grocery store near us, is now carrying a ketchup without high fructose corn syrup (in fact, it's advertised as HFCS-free right at the top of the bottle! Very cool!)

Outside of webcomic creation, theology and miscellaneous artistic endeavors, I have an interest in reading articles related to health and nutrition, so I'm going to start gathering them here.
