    When April Yamaichi was a young girl and went shopping with her family in Japantown, she’d dart into the San Jose Tofu Company on Jackson Street to buy a brick of fresh handmade tofu for 25 cents. At one point, she was buying the tofu about every other week from then-owner Takeshi Nozaki, who eventually passed the business down to his son, Chester. “I’d run over and get tofu from Chester’s dad,” she said. “I just remember his arm was always red from working in the tofu and mixing the soy mixture. “The texture is unmatched, and the flavor, obviously,”...

    The operation to remove hundreds of tiny stones took doctors around two hours Doctors in China have removed 420 kidney stones from a man's body, blaming an excessive amount of tofu in his daily diet. Mr He from Zhejiang Province in eastern China, checked into the Dongyang People's Hospital complaining of intense pain in his abdomen last month. A CT scan revealed that his left kidney was packed full of stones, most of them tiny. Doctors operated on Friday in an agonising procedure that lasted about two hours. Mr He said he had a history of suffering from kidney stones....

    Just days after the taking Chicken McNuggets off its menu in the light of the China food scandal, McDonald’s Japan has unveiled a brand new, rather unusual product: Tofu Shinjo Nuggets and Ginger Sauce, a combination of bean curd, fish and vegetables shaped into bite-size pieces and deep-fried. Turning to tofu–a food that has long been a favourite in Japan and known for its health benefits–is certainly a wise move, and McDonald’s is undoubtedly in need of something new to entice customers back with, but while we’ve no doubt all craved deep-fried chicken at some point in our lives, we’d...

    Mitt Romney’s campaign attacked President Obama and the Supreme Court ruling in Obamacare this morning, arguing that the ruling expands congressional power by allowing the federal government to levy taxes in order to compel behavior. “Under this taxing authority now, you can tax inactivity to compel behavior, you can tax inactivity, what’s to stop this administration — we know the First Lady is very keen on us eating healthy — why not tax people for not eating tofu?”Gov. Bobby Jindal,, R-La., asked reporters on a conference call this morning. “This administration, they’ve put taxpayers as partial owners of GM, why...
  • Japan: Fukushima tofu makers not deterred by food concerns

    December 17, 2011 Fukushima tofu makers not deterred by food concerns FUKUSHIMA--As paranoia over contaminated food has the nation on edge, workers in the Tatsugoyama district of Fukushima city are busy producing the local specialty, freeze-dried tofu. "While we worried about the effects from the accident at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, we are relieved because radiation tests by the prefectural government before we shipped out the products found no problems," said Yukio Kurosawa, 75, who has been making dried tofu for 50 years.

Kelly Coffman-Lee wanted to tell the world about her fondness for bean curd by picking certain letters for her SUV’s license plate. Her suggestion for the plate: “ILVTOFU.” But the Division of Motor Vehicles blocked her plan because they thought the combination of letters could be interpreted as profane.

    Eating high levels of some soy products - including tofu - may raise the risk of memory loss, research suggests. The study focused on 719 elderly Indonesians living in urban and rural regions of Java. The researchers found high tofu consumption - at least once a day - was associated with worse memory, particularly among the over-68s. The Loughborough University-led study features in the journal Dementias and Geriatric Cognitive Disorders. Soy products are a major alternative protein source to meat for many people in the developing world. But soy consumption is also on the increase in the west, where it...

    What you can - and cannot do - with your software is often determined by the code owner's license.

    A devil food is turning our kids into homosexuals Posted: December 12, 2006 1:00 a.m. Eastern There's a slow poison out there that's severely damaging our children and threatening to tear apart our culture. The ironic part is, it's a "health food," one of our most popular. Now, I'm a health-food guy, a fanatic who seldom allows anything into his kitchen unless it's organic. I state my bias here just so you'll know I'm not anti-health food. The dangerous food I'm speaking of is soy. Soybean products are feminizing, and they're all over the place. You can hardly escape them...

    Move over, turkey April E. Clark Post Independent Staff November 17, 2006 If Margie Garrett had her wish, she'd be having a turkey at her Thanksgiving dinner. But this turkey wouldn't be roasted, fried or stuffed. It would be a guest. "I'd love to invite one to dinner," said Garrett, who has worked at Good Health grocery store for 10 years. "I would love to have one as a pet turkey some day." Each year, Garrett hosts a Thanksgiving spread that features enough food to make anyone forget about turkey. She's been a vegetarian since 1972 and, more recently, is...

    Fifty ways to kill Zacharias Moussaui It looks like Zacharias Moussaui may have to be sent to meet the 72 virgins in hell. With that in mine, here are some the ways the Government can administer Justice to Zacharias Moussaui. 1. Place Zacharias Moussaui in a chair. Using an industrial strength crane, hoist 150 ft. above Zacharias Moussaui a 900 lbs. pot-belly pig. Drop the 900 lbs. pig onto Zacharias Moussaui. 2. Force Zacharias Moussaui to watch GIGLI, BASIC INSTINCT 2, ALEXANDER, CATWOMAN, SUPERBABIES: BABY GENIUSES 2, WHITE CHICKS, JERSEY GIRL, and other Razzie Award winning movies. This will force...

    TORONTO - Maybe your doctor should write up a grocery list to help lower your cholesterol, suggests a small study that showed a rigid diet seemed as effective as cholesterol-lowering pills. Of course, sticking to that diet may not be easy. "People interested in lowering their cholesterol should probably acquire a taste for tofu and oatmeal," said study co-author David Jenkins of the University of Toronto. The study, published this month in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, was funded in part by almond promoters and a major food company. Jenkins, Canadian research chair in metabolism and nutrition at Toronto,...

    Eating veggie burgers and tofu to lower "bad" cholesterol may not help, a new review of soy's health benefits suggests. The American Heart Association reviewed 22 randomized trials comparing soy protein and the soy component isoflavone to milk or other proteins. The majority of the trials concluded soy led to an average decrease in LDL or "bad" cholesterol levels of just three per cent. "This reduction is very small relative to the large amount of soy protein tested in these studies, averaging 50 grams, about half the usual total daily protein intake," the committee wrote in the Jan. 17 online...

    The food police really have it in for the fast-food industry. If they had their way, they'd have it taxed, litigated, regulated or legislated out of existence. While they await the day when mainstream America adopts their loopy agenda, however, the food police will have to be content with being the shrill shills of the vegan and animal-rights movements. But it's not like the food police haven't had an effect on the industry. In response to the incessant carping of the Center for Science in the Public Interest and others, most national fast-food chains introduced menus boasting "healthy" foods. Taco...

    A Dartmouth business student is getting a lot of attention for a macabre new food product. Tuck Business School student Mark Nuckols said he's doing a brisk business for "Hufu," a tofu product that's flavored to taste like human flesh. Nuckols says he got the idea for hufu while eating a soy-turkey sandwich and reading a book about cannibalism.
