  1. Thanks for posting this.  Very interesting.  I’m taking the reports with a grain of salt, however, because the one issue I’m familiar with, GM foods, was presented in a very superficial and overdramatized way.  What kind of modifications were used? (for example)  And were the animals fed in a way that represents what would happen if people or livestock were eating the product in real life? (ie. were the rats fed nothing but GM corn?  would cows/pigs eat only corn?  People certainly eat other non-GM produce/meat not fed GM food in balance)Despite this, I thought the updates from the original authors of the works cited was informative and believable, and totally creepy.  Like most Americans, I’m in denial of what goes on behind closed doors and how much power is held by so few people (not necessarily elected people either).  If only, in a perfect world, people would stop spending so much time reading gossip blogs and spend more time talking about what needs to be changed.  The complacent lack of awareness in the general public is totally scary.
