They all are DNA modified products. Consumers may worry the Mosanto’s GM tomato DNA is taken from animal or insect and causing some adverse effects on our DNA pool or mutation. In reality, all life forms on the earth are sharing genetic codes, i.e. plant is sharing 30% DNA with us. Like it or not, the world population is reaching 9 billion by 2050, GM food is only viable source to… Read more »

“Search your peelings Cuke” ROFL!

I spotted the Phil Ochs article in your news list – hadn’t seen his name for a while. I had an album of his records once – his version of “The Bells” is one of my faves:
