    You are free to eat what you desire, after all you're grown. Given the continued deaths of heart related diseases and illnesses, cancer and diabetes it may be wise to eat more fresh organic vegetables, fruits and herbs and less red meat, processed sugars, salt and so forth. What are your thoughts.

    I've been eating this way for 10 years. I don't eat any processed food either.  I do get teased about eating this way but too bad. smile

        I have a big problem with our government allowing GMF. In my opinion it's outrageous  If its continually going to be used - we at least have a right to know what the the ingredients listed on the labeling of all cans.  Don't you think?

          GMOs and GMFare much more complicated than just food that is “modified” or changed. Engineers and chemists work very hard to create these techniques as well as to identify what traits are desirable in an organism. This is a prime example of how humans and nature have become intertwined. We have come to a point where the natural way of growing food is no longer satisfy our needs. There are specific characteristics we look for in crops, whether it is to increase consumer satisfaction or to increase productivity. However, as with anything new, there are always questions about whether or not it may be harmful to human health, the health of the livestock being fed this food, and the health of the environment. Even though these are questions that may not be answered for years to come, there is one thing we know – there are too many different kinds of modifications to just see GMOs as a single group of entities. Without full understanding of how these things were modified, one cannot assess the effect of the crop on humans, animals, or the environment. Knowledge comes first, and then come the answers. The story started with a step toward a longer lasting and tastier tomato and this lead to a movement with more and more methods of creating these “Franken fruit.” How will the story end? By me gong to school for food science and not culinary these are things that I really pay close attention to.

    Handicapped chef, it does seem like our society does not seem phased by the threat of death & so many different diseases. Instead of fixing problems we simply label them as obese. Most people continued to have bad eating habits until it's too late or something tragic happens.

      alphadogg16 you are so right what people think of as “stomach flu” is typically food poisoning. Hand-washing is critical after handling raw meat and fish. For example, the skin of nine out of ten chickens has been found to be contaminated with fecal matter. C. diff, the superbug associated with pseudomembraneous colitis and toxic megacolon, was found in 42% of U.S. retail meat in one study. The superbug MRSA also affects the U.S. meat supply and this is really crazy. Nearly half of retail meat for sale in the United States was found contaminated with staph in general. Pork tapeworms infecting one’s brain is the leading cause of adult-onset epilepsy.

      Extra-intestinal E. coli, found in almost half of all retail poultry samples tested, may cause urinary tract infections. Viruses from poultry may even be associated with neurological diseases, and bacteria from poultry have been associated with paralysis (see also here). The hepatitis E virus is carried in the livers and bloodstreams of pigs and is transmitted through feces and by eating undercooked pork.

      There are a number of heat-stable toxins in fish that can cause food poisoning (some of which may even be sexually transmitted). We can get cholera from raw oysters; tapeworms, brainworms, and eyeworms from sushi, and a rare form of amnesia. Even placing children in the basket of a shopping cart with raw meat could pose a danger.This is why it is better to eat local and what I call farm fresh foods.
