The little dog and I haven’t had any issues with ticks (as in the parasite) this season, surprising since they’re so common around here.

That is, until recently.

The “Future of Food” is a compelling, eye-opening documentary that is widely considered a “must-see documentary” by anyone who eats food.

Even if you think you know everything worth knowing about your food, there’s still a dark secret the biotech companies believe consumers should not be allowed to know: That many foods are genetically engineered with dangerous pesticides and foreign DNA, and there is currently no U.S. law requiring their labeling as such.

Beginning Jan. 1, 2006, all food products and dietary supplements bearing a nutritional facts panel that are regulated by the USDA and sold in the United States have been required to list tran-fat content.

The dangers of trans-fats have been evident for many years. Only now is the general public given access to this information.

What a coincidence.

We have to buckle up when we drive.
It’s the law.

We are no longer allowed to take scissors or pocketknives in our hand luggage when we fly.
It’s the law.

Vehicles must fulfill a range of safety requirements to be allowed on the streets.

Fast food shops even label coffee cups to warn consumers that the content is hot.

But if that rice you and your family are eating contains the human genes of your next-door neighbor, well, that’s just none of your business.

ok – we’ve all heard at least some sort of verbiage about it by now… GM food…GE Food… Genetically Modified…Genetically Engineered…Transgenic…. but it’s not in the media, not really anyway.

What is it? How is it different from traditional food?

In early 2001, Dr. Arpad Pusztai’s colleague Dr. Stanley Ewen, Dr. Arpad Pusztai’s wife Dr. Susan Bardócz and Dr. Arpad Pusztai himself submitted evidence to the New Zealand Royal Commission regarding Genetic Modification. (Dr. Arpad Pusztai is the independent scientist who had been fired for his truthful reporting regarding GMO’s/ Genetically Modified Organisms. His research team was broken up, his data seized, and six of the similar research projects that were taking place at that time were halted.)

The Showa Denko Tryptophan disaster

Genetic Engineering
The Disaster

The tryptophan disaster in the end of the 1980’s and beginning of 1990’s killed 37 and permanently disabled 1,500 people in the United States in a disease called eosonophil myalgia syndrome (EMS).

It was caused by one or more extremely poisonous substances present in a tryptophan food supplement, which was produced by genetically engineered bacteria at the Japanese firm Showa Denko.

The most widely used sweetener in the world, Aspartame, found in fizzy drinks and sweets, is being made using a secret genetic engineering process, which some scientists claim needs further testing for toxic side-effects. Read the rest of this entry »

About the Safety of the
Genetically Engineered Foods You’re Eating


On May 23, 2003, President Bush proposed an Initiative to End Hunger in Africa using genetically modified (GM) foods. He also blamed Europe’s “unfounded, unscientific fears” of these foods for thwarting recovery efforts. Bush was convinced that GM foods held the key to greater yields, expanded U.S. exports, and a better world. His rhetoric was not new. It had been passed down from president to president, and delivered to the American people through regular news reports and industry advertisements.

The message was part of a master plan that had been crafted by corporations determined to control the world’s food Read the rest of this entry »

As the global demand for food increases and modern technological breakthroughs give scientists the tools they need to create stronger, healthier crops, the predominance of genetically modified foods has sparked growing concern as to the potentially hazardous effects of playing with Mother Nature’s perfection.
