Like you said...they were allowed to adapt slowly to changes in their diets; our dietary changes have come too suddenly to allow adaptation.

Agreed. Evolution is s-s-s-l-l-l-o-o-o-o-w-w-w-w-w.

It's been four years now and I still can't swallow anything coming out of the Oval Office.

They ate real food. I believe going back to locally grown and eating what is produced easily in the environment you live in instead of mass production food is the way to eat and heal our planet and ourselves. Of course the response will be that it is too late for that. But we either do it voluntarily or we will be forced to do it through necessity. Unless we want to live on lab food and vaccines.

In the meantime we have managed to make people aware that growth hormones in dairy was a bad idea and now it milk without hormones in more in demand. DDT commercials (another) of Monsanto's babies used to give the message of how good it was for our food. That has been banned. Why give up so easily shinning? You seem like you would be more of a fighter than a line of least resistance guy. So many other countries are already on board with banning GMO seed and more people everyday are becoming aware they have been duped. I myself will never become compliant with the Monsanto agenda.

Good link. She is also in the movie "Genetic Roulette" which you can see free on youtube. At least you could last week. These movies have a tendency to disappear.

I usually steer clear of the political (and from what I recall so do you shinning). What I will say is this...it took us 10 yrs to create debt from surplus...I think I will let Obama have 8 yrs to try to fix it. I just can't stomach the other guy. Don't get me wrong, I know Obama has shortcomings. Both Republican and Democratic presidents since George Bush Sr. have appointed ex Monsanto employees to key positions in our agriculture dept and the FDA. This is like putting the fox in the hen house. I choose to believe it has to do with them actually believing the lie that this is a beneficial bio-technology. Otherwise the only other explanation is a conspiracy to kill us and keep down the population. But why would they want ot kill their worker bees. They need us to keep the wheel turning and keep those profits coming in.

You have completely mistaken what I wrote. I was describing the poster's comment about primitives eating better as being incomplete and premature. Primitives lived very short lives while we live much more extended ones with better health than they did. That is just factual and not an opinion. I was not at all supporting GMO, BPH, Steroid and antibiotic meat production. In fact, nano's YouTube link has opened my eyes even wider in this regard.

We are fish trapped in a barrel that are being fed garbage-for-profit. We live inside of a cornered market for food, drugs and medical services. I am not pro-GMO.

I will steer clear here, too, if I can:>

I am a believer in freedom. This administration, much more so than past ones, is rapidly removing it from me. I am not a bee in a hive.

I was furious when she mentioned at 14:35 how Coke, Kraft and Walmart formulate products without GMOs for the foreign market but not for the American one.

Hey that's great news; in another 50,000 years GMOs will be "natural" and maybe even organic. Monsanto forgot to consider that it takes a long time to adjust to something new. Big Pharma has it's heyday and then eventually there will be another "golden age of the hominids". I can't wait to walk around naked and eat the all too plentiful wild pistachios and blackberries (just one would be enough for a week's time, you know, GMOs just keep gettin bigger).

Quoted ya twice, responded once; I'm a topix rookie again.

Here's a thought. Separation leads to speciation and interbreeding/crossbreeding leads to despeciation....so it seems we're on the road to Oneness again. Just like the "infinite" unoverse, we will all wind up at the same place we started. One.

Zero only exists in math. It all starts at One.

This problem extends far beyond just food sources. The human brain's capabilities have far outstripped its abilities to cope with its own creations.

Hominid characteristics were created and developed by their natural environment just like all other Life forms on this planet. This continues today for all Life forms except Man who can now create its own environments. We create drugs and then abuse them. We learn to manipulate genes and then abuse this knowledge. We learn how we tick inside the cranium and then use the knowledge of Psychology and Demographics to lie to and manipulate the masses for profit regarding everything from GMO, Politics, Used Cars and sex appeal. As a species, we have great difficulty today separating reality from the virtual realm because of the environment we've created. And we are killing ourselves with the creation of dangerous Plastics, GMOs, drugs and snacks. Artificial sweeteners, artificial fats and artificial proteins - proteins not normally found in Nature. Next on the horizon: Artificial Man.

Technically, producers can call GMOs organic right now.
