What do we know about caffeine?

Apr 17, 2014

On today's Your Call, we'll speak with Murray Carpenter on his new book Caffeinated: How Our Daily Habit Helps, Hurts, and Hooks Us. Caffeine is the largest, least-regulated, and least-understood drug trade in the United States. Most people don't know how much caffeine they consume or where it comes from. How does caffeine affect our bodies and minds? And should it be regulated?  Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Hey guys,

Will Durst here with a few choice words about plastic bread. I'm against it. And formaldehyde rinsed coffee beans? Not a fan. Flame retardants in my cupcakes? That's a big ol' negativo.

Jul 20, 2012

As more than 23,000 delegates from over 195 countries convene this week in Washington, D.C., for the XIX International AIDS Conference, LGBTQ rights advocates and others in California are trying to raise awareness about FDA policies and guidelines that they say place undue and unnecessary restrictions on LGBTQ individuals looking to conceive--policies they say were informed by concerns around the transmission HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

Today on Your Call: How safe is imported food?

Feb 21, 2012

On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about food safety. Fifteen percent of all food in the US is imported, but only one percent of that food is inspected. Over 80 percent of fish and 45 percent of the fresh fruit consumed comes from another country. Why is so little food inspected? Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org. What does food safety mean to you? Do you know where your food comes from? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
