Ooooh, boy.... now this is really serious... >:o
I think your ignorance will be forgiven, maybe! And this is not meant
disparagingly but you'd better find out about Monsanto and corn and how
they are probably the greatest destructors of the the environment and
our own bodies? Google it and get a hold of some books, like try Michael
Pollan; do you have any idea of what Monsanto does and to whom and how?
Do you know how corn is destroying whole economies of countries? Corn is
sweeping continents because of human greed - it is being used to create
all sorts of artificial food ingredients and even to produce petrol
(oil) substitutes... even your own body is probably so full of corn
derivatives that it is surprising that you haven't turned into a corn
cob by now -- especially if you are not paying attention, and I mean
great attention, to what you eat... like MacDos and pre-packaged
prepared foods... just think for a minute: according to the current
business models in just about everything including and especially the
food industry... how do you think they boost their profits... certainly
not by raising prices... nooooooh, that would not be cool... they just
downgrade the quality of the ingredients and the workers so that  if
;you are not eating shit by the time it gets to your enteron (that is a
word - one that Enron paid some 6 million smackers fo an agency and then
found out that that is the the entire digestive tract right from one
input hole to the output hole) :-D , it is a miracle....
glad to have this opportunity to rile - that is exactly the kind of
thing that we want to do with the site that we are starting to
develop... to destroy ignorance about food - to enllighten, inform and
teach to have a greater society of well fed and healthy individuals...
don't foget, you are what you eat - the name escapes me at the moment,
but it was a great French chef of the 18th century who said that...
I could go on at great length on that subject... but I have to goet some
work done...
