Scourge of cereal, corrupter of coffee, cause of more spit takes than a Donald Trump press conference: rotten milk has ruined many mornings. And yet our only defense against the potentially stomach-souring effect is the simple, unreliable sniff test.

Labeling GMOs is not about whether this technology is good or bad. It's just about giving consumers something that 9 out of 10 of them have clearly stated they want. Not giving consumers the information they're demanding about your product is simply bad business.
Peter Saunders in Part 2 of our recent interview comments on why it's crucial to understand how evolution works in light of the ongoing genetic modification of organisms. He is a long-time critic of neo-Darwinism, particularly of the assumption of "one gene -- one character."
Organic, GMO, pesticide-free, fair-trade -- what do these really mean, are they just trends and how do they affect our planet?
Food is a good reason for Democrats and Republicans to abscond from their "politics as usual" party loyalties and vote for Bernie Sanders, the 38-year Independent running against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic primary.
Nigerians have watched the debate over genetic engineering and GMOs unfold in the Western world for over 40 years. I hope we will apply the lessons learnt in a way that will truly benefit the current and future generations of our people.
I recently watched several documentaries on GMOs and all of the chemicals - pesticides, antibiotics, hormones - that are put into foods in America so when I saw Kye's "Super Foods" restaurant opening on Montana Avenue I decided to try it out.
All we really need to know is that passing H.R. 1314 essentially puts the omnibus, 29-chapter Trans Pacific Partnership trade agreement onto the fast track, where Congress members don't get a chance to deliberate or discuss it on the floor of the House.
Big business invests a great deal in making their desires known to our government. In order to create change we as citizens must use whatever means available to inform our representatives in government of our own desires for health and wellness.
While these big-money packaged food leaders seemingly want to promote cutting calories, my hope is that one day they will want to promote something that is not just a healthier option (as in less dangerous) but is truly healthy.

This isn't to say that she's any worse than other Republicans; it's merely to note that, like with Obama, her calling herself a 'Democrat' doesn't make any difference, other than to fool a different group of suckers.
Hawai'i's sugar oligarchy past left largely intact a mono-economy, today's military and corporate tourism. Economic diversification is a widely-shared policy priority, and the agrochemical industry presents as an appealing "agricultural" and "high-tech" industry alternative, purportedly also contributing millions to the economy.
There are many aspects of the food system that must be changed, but a list of issues is not really a program for social change. We need a broader vision for how we are going to build political power.
The ability to produce hybrid crops with beneficial traits has great promise for human and environmental health. The fight over labeling is a stumbling block preventing society from developing wise and safe uses of this technology, and that's frustrating because the fight is pointless.
