My top 12 posts of the year

Well another year's come and almost gone.

Hope you enjoyed reading the blog as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

Stay tuned in January when I've got a world exclusive on a story that is perhaps the most horrifying and irresponsible thing Health Canada's ever set out to do (and from me that's saying a lot!) - unless someone gets to it first. It may be a few weeks into January. It's a complicated story to tell properly and if Health Canada succeeds it won't only affect Canada but countries the world over.

I'm taking a blog-cation until January 4th and just in case you missed them the first time around, here's my favourite posts of each month of 2009.

Read how two little French towns are curing childhood obesity.

Why isn't Canada banning canned soft drinks?

Irony Alert: Kellogg's named one of the world's most ethical companies.

Health Canada set to fortify junk food.

Thoughtful elementary students ignored in quest for healthier cafeteria food.

PETA - Eating animals OUT, objectifying women IN.

Watch Maple Leaf Foods VP joke about the worst listeria outbreak in Canadian history.
