geneitic food

Three federal agencies regulate genetically-engineered crops and foods, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

A private agency has recieved these statements from them.

** No public records need be kept of which farms are using genetically-engineered seeds;

** Companies that buy from farmers and sell to food manufacturers and grocery chains do not need to keep genetically-engineered crops separate from traditional crops, so purchasers have no way to avoid purchasing genetically engineered foods;

** No one needs to label any crops, or any food products, with information about their genetically engineered origins, so consumers have no way to exercise informed choice in the grocery store. In the U.S., every food carries a label listing its important ingredients, with the remarkable exception of genetically engineered foods.

Today Pillsbury food products are made from genetically-engineered crops. Other foods that are now genetically engineered include Crisco; Kraft salad dressings; Nestle's chocolate; Green Giant harvest burgers; Parkay margarine; Isomil and ProSobee infant formulas; and Wesson vegetable oils. Fritos, Doritos, Tostitos and Ruffles Chips -- and french fried potatoes sold by McDonald's -- are genetically engineered.
Dow, DuPont, Novartis, and preeminently, Monsanto -- are aggressively promoting their genetically engineered seeds in Europe, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, India, China and elsewhere.
Monsanto's other major line of genetically engineered crops contains the gene from a natural pesticide called Bt. Bt is a naturally-occurring soil organism that kills many kinds of caterpillars that like to eat the leaves of crops. Bt is the pesticide of choice in low-chemical-use farming, IPM [integrated pest management] and organic farming. Farmers who try to minimize their use of synthetic chemical pesticides rely on an occasional dusting with Bt to prevent a crop from being overrun with leaf-eating caterpillars. To them, Bt is a God-send, a miracle of nature.

The farmland across the street I see is very poor soil compared to soil 1 mile away. Because of the chemical fertilizer and pesticides like Bt, the people who owned the land originally was military,, for secret security near the waterways, then it was opened up to a Sugar Cane Plantation. I don't know how long, but there is still dead canes. With a couple lowered beds and compost, it could still yield simple crops. However now the 1000 hectares or so that is there is being sold to a High Income Housing Project. While the community imports 70 percent + / -, the farmland is not being used. If they scheduled more farmland for this general area then everyone would not be so poor.

So I see this potential senator, and she says "Hows it brotha" and I say "What's up", and then we talked for a while. But a couple specific questions for the record (out of context)

Me: What political party are you with?
Her: Democratic

.....


Me: You see that field over there?
Her: Yeah
Me: I go and get wild wheat, peas, and cherry tomatos from there
Now, there building High Income Housing there. Why don't they make more low income housing over there, and make that farmland?
Her: Yeah
Me. Hawaii imports 70 percent of the food eaten.
Her: Yeah


Me: How do you feel about the Green Party?
Her: I think they are important.

Me: Is this like "Instant run off"
Her: It is just to waste money.


Her: Who are you with?


She does'nt even have a webpage,, and the primaries are soon. The problem is the problem of funding before a priority election. If you don't win the primary then you are'nt actually in the part of the election where serious donations are allowed to be accepted by political parties. That means no t.v. commercials unless you win the priority. So if she ever becomes famous, or ges a platform and webpage,, I won't officially endorse her until I see some more.

I bet your endorsement counts for a lot.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

A recent LA Times article debated the nations ability to conclude on issues such as genetic food, human cloneing, politics and foreign policy when less than half of voteing age americans know what DNA stands for, what the genetic code means/does, who the vice president is or where places like europe or the middle east are on a map.

I think theyve got a great point their.

It's a sad fact that many Americans can't even find the U.S. on a world map...

i agree...i barely paid attention in High school and i have no problem answering them "man on the street" questions. I think it's more generational than anything else. That's why i fear the future where decisions will become a lot more crucial and have a bigger impact.
