More food worries...

"...despite the fact that hundreds of peer-reviewed studies have shown that nanoparticles pose potential risks to human health -- and, more specifically, that when ingested can cause DNA damage that can prefigure cancer and heart and brain disease."

As if GMO foods, or foods that contain high fructose corn syrup or MSG was bad enough, now we have nanoparticles showing up in foods we already are eating and there is absolutely NOTHING we can do about it when we shop at stores for food items.

"20 of the world's largest food manufacturers -- among them Nestlé, as well as Hershey, Cargill, Campbell Soup, Sara Lee, and H.J. Heinz -- have their own in-house nano-labs, or have contracted with major universities to do nano-related food product development. But they are not eager to broadcast those efforts."

These are the same companies that have things like High Fructose Corn Syrup ( A cause of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and mercury poisoning as of 2005) or MSG (A chemical that effects the brain and nervous system).

I for one support Jamie Oliver and his Food Revolution after seeing him on TEDS and it is why here, at my families Coquille Permaculture Project the land will be treated with respect & love. That means no cultivation of the soil, no use of chemicals / fertilizers, no weeding, and no pesticides.
