If you are not interested in where your food comes from and what it might do to you as long as it is inexpensive and tastes good then you can skip the following text which I found while surfing tags that I look for in ‘the-cloud-of- knowing’.

Here is an excerpt:

Dangerous Food Safety Lies:

When the FDA was constructing their GMO policy in 1991-2, their scientists were clear that gene-sliced foods were significantly different and could lead to “different risks” than conventional foods. But official policy declared the opposite, claiming that the FDA knew nothing of significant differences, and declared GMOs substantially equivalent. This fiction became the rationale for allowing GM foods on the market without any required safety studies whatsoever! The determination of whether GM foods were safe to eat was placed entirely in the hands of the companies that made them — companies like Monsanto, which told us that the PCBs, DDT, and Agent Orange were safe. GMOs were rushed onto our plates in 1996. Over the next nine years, multiple chronic illnesses in the US nearly doubled — from 7% to 13%. Allergy-related emergency room visits doubled between 1997 and 2002 while food allergies, especially among children, skyrocketed. We also witnessed a dramatic rise in asthma, autism, obesity, diabetes, digestive disorders, and certain cancers. In January of this year, Dr. P. M. Bhargava, one of the world’s top biologists, told me that after reviewing 600 scientific journals, he concluded that the GM foods in the US are largely responsible for the increase in many serious diseases.”

    I went to the supermarket to buy groceries with my wife one day. We got to the produce section and decided to purchase some strawberries. Side by side, hand in hand were some local farm grown berries and some genetically altered, mutant, monster berries.

    As I reached for the locals my wife yelled, “Are you crazy! Look at how big those other ones are! And they’re cheaper!”

    I, of course, know better then to argue, so I grabbed a quart of each.

    She ate all the local berries, and yelled at me for letting the mutants go bad.

    There is a saying in South America: “Lo barato viene caro” – What is initially cheap will end up costing you more.

  4. I’ve been working on a new method of raising cows. Instead of the traditional four legs and a body design, we’re thinking a mass of roughly 5000 hot dog shaped tubes will be a more effective product. The cow won’t need a pasture, the meat won’t need processing and the consumer can feel better about eating something that really just needs cooking.

  5. oh i forgot cows have heads also. If we can have these menaces removed from the design of both our cows and consumers we’ll be much better off.

    Remember IBM and their multi million dollar huge footstep computing machine. It took up a whole floor. Today your cellphone can do more and its in everybody’s hands. Look forward to a world designed by personal DESIRE. Blue bananas and why not peel less; ease your world while your at it. Join the experiment; be a God or a fool in three easy steps.

    I hope Nature does not get unglued in the process.
