HOW MANY PEOPLE ACTUALLY THROW FOOD AWAY, BECAUSE WE HAVE TOO MUCH... WE CAN'T EAT IT ALL BEFORE IT GOES BAD!!! WE DON'T NEED TO PRODUCE THAT MUCH FOOD, WE PRODUCE TOO MUCH!!! FOOD WOULD BE HEALTHIER, SAFER, AND FRESHER IF IT WAS GROWN IN SMALLER FARMS THAT TOOK UP LESS AREA AND FED THE SURROUNDING POPULATION... EXCEPT FOR TROPICAL/HUMID CROPS THAT CAN ONLY BE GROWN IN THE SOUTH... AGRICULTURE IN THIS COUNTRY HAS GOTTEN TOO BIG!!! IT IS MORE OF A BUSINESS RATHER THAN A LIFESTYLE AND WAY OF LIFE NOW. I LIKED IT BETTER IN THE OLD DAYS BEFORE IT GOT OUT OF CONTROL....

Look, idiot, production is regulated by the laws of supply and demand, not be the diktats of some uninformed alarnist like yourself who doesn;t understand economics, biology, histoty or reality.
We in the media rarely lie to you.

But that leaves plenty of room to take things wildly out of context.

That's where most big scare stories come from, like recent headlines about GM foods. GM means "genetically modified," which means scientists add genes, altering the plant's DNA, in this case to make the crop resistant to pests.

Last week, Poland joined seven other European countries in banning cultivation of GM foods.

The politicians acted because headlines screamed about how GM foods caused huge tumors in rats. The pictures of the rats are scary. Some have tumors the size of tennis...
