Paul Gaylon ( once asked me to research a topic on the Internet.  Someone had told him of an article on "Canola" that had appeared stating Canola at one time had been diluted with petroleum oil to make greater quantities of Canola.  Canola = Canadian Oil Company.  Canola is a private business partnered with the Canadian Government and also funds its own "non-profit' organization to promote Canola.

As I began to read through thousands of articles on Canola to find that particular article, I noticed every article I read was posted by the non-profit corporation funded by Canola.  They had inundated the Internet with thousands of pages promising everything good in the world from Canola, probably to succeed in making sure no one ever saw the one article about how Canola had been mixed with Petroleum Oil.

I still think of the photo that went around Facebook a while back.   Someone put two ears of corn out, one GMO and one organic.   The next day the organic corn was eaten and the GMO corn was virtually untouched except for a few kernels.   I guess squirrels know better than to eat foods genetically engineered not to go bad while poisoning insects.   Perhaps if society had even a squirrel's brain it might be doing a whole lot better.

I think avoiding GMO's, GE's or the no-name they'll have as they become part of your diet without your knowledge is a great idea .   Doing so, you'll remove yourself from the rat lab arena of corporate profiteers and you will help sustainable healthy nutritional agriculture become the norm rather go extinct.

I consider myself a renaissance man as I believe I have (since a very young age when I saw first-hand people with lives of starvation, without housing and without medical care) been on the cutting edge of understanding politics and foreign (more...)
