Part of the perfect diet - No sugar, no grains, no processed foods.
Cue the Kanamits
I raise a large garden as well. However, Golden Rice is a very good product for 3rd worlders. Greenpeace is a bunch of commies bastards. I put anyone who is against something like golden rice in the same category as the idiots who pushed to outlaw DDT. Comfortable, well fed people should not be making decisions for less fortunate countries.
And the third world should starve?
I'm so sick and tired of GMO KOOKS.
The fact is, Monsanto has saved more lives than Hitler murdered. They save more lives than we kill every day in America in abortuaries.
You are part of the affluent First World. You'll likely never know what it is like to go hungry unless your Guru tells you to fast. But getting beta carotene into the diets of millions who don't otherwise get it means that hundreds of thousands will *live* and millions will keep their eyesight.
It's a diet which is by no means perfect, but the people hungry in Asia don't care much about your waistline.
That doesn't mean I'm disconnected by the harsher realities in other parts of the world.
Monsanto is a HERO. I wish I could point to Golden Rice as something I had done for my fellow man.
Great post Mamzelle and to the point!!
I could stand up and cheer!!
If it’s so good for them, let them grow and eat it, then.
Golden Rice is People!
Good for you, I am glad you have discovered what was ailing you. I have been extremely allergic to corn and wild rice (a grass seed) all of my life. Recently I have been having trouble after eating wheat. I do eat rice, however with no problem (so far).
The more I read about about Golden Rice, the more admiring I am of the scientists that brought it about. The rice still needs some fat for the vitamins to be metabolized, but there will be fewer blind people and reduced mortality.
Of course, the liberals hate for people to live. They like better to decide who gets to live, and who gets to die. Reduces the stress on the planet. I think that's the real MO--reducing the population. Doesn't Melinda Gates donate to Greenpeace?
>> I’ve lost 12 pounds in three weeks,
People in the third world don’t celebrate a loss of 12 pounds in 3 weeks. They die from that. Third worlders would love to have a “wheat belly”. First World problems are not Third World problems.
Well said, ma’am.
3rd world doesn’t mean hungry. In most places where rice is a staple they have plenty. Shortages are usually caused by government intervention or outright theft.
The environmental movement is about reducing the impact of humans on the earth. Mass starvation is a way to accomplish the ultimate goal.
Bill and Melinda Gates are some of the biggest cheerleaders of GMO crops.
Possibly only a little behind Warren Buffet and George Soros.
All of the above are rabidly interested in population control as well.
Make of that what you will.
And so you’re spreading this communist bullshit responsible for the deaths of tens of millions of Americans? If ever there was a face of pure, unadulterated evil in the world, it’s that of these left-wing organizations leading innumerable people to horrible deaths so they can pat themselves on the back for associating their genocidal behaviors with “good eating.”
You mean GMOs’ are going to wipe out the masses before Chemtrails? Who knew? Anyone got any spare tinfoil?
Which of my statements is untrue?
All the aforementioned people are vociferous supporters of GMO crops.
All of the aforementioned people are rabidly pro population control.
Refute without insults, if you can.
Why are the big as companies seeking total control over the food supply and production?
