Shifting baselines would seem to include nutrition guidelines. It seems that we have to eat a lot more fruits and veggies in order to maintain the same health level of nutrients than we did thirty years ago. <p></p><i></i>

Interesting site, shame I can't watch most of their flix (I'm still using Win98 and google vids no longer play for me, so it's probably not their fault). Shame too that they concentrate on the seas, though happily the contest is open to interpetation. <!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://www.sas.org.uk/"><br><br>Surfers Against Sewage</a><!--EZCODE LINK END--> are one of the most newsworthy eco groups in the UK, yet they're the most single issue, self interested and hedonistic of those concerned with such issues.
