I stopped listening to "experts" years ago. The best definition of an expert I've heard yet is - Someone who knows more and more about less and less, until he gets to the point where he knows absolutely everything about nothing! I figured God gave me a brain and common sense, I'll listen to them. I'm almost 60 years old and I'm happy, healthy, and fit. Science in our day and age has become too influenced by politics and the 'political correction' mentality. The men in the white lab coats just can't be trusted anymore.

An "ex" is a has-been and a "spert" is a little drip under pressure. . .
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...
