The US Is the World’s Largest Producer of Corn, So Why Are We Importing More?

Because of its reliance on genetically modified crops, the world's largest producer of corn has been forced to import organic, non-GMO corn from other countries.

"Almost all of the corn raised in the US is genetically modified?" Why is that? Is it because nobody grows any other kind, voluntarily, or is it because those companies' GM genes have escaped into the general corn population? It happens every time a breeze blows pollen from GM corn to wild-type (i.e. regular, non-GM) corn, and they are very hard to get back out. THAT is what I think is the most insidious hazard from GM crops... NOT that they produce subtly poisonous or otherwise harmful food, but that they compromise the entire species and likely genus and family genomes to which they belong. Someday, a disease will come along, and due to Genetic Modifications that were made, ALL. the corn will die out. It's possible. Companies like Monsanto are suing regional farmers whose crops are found to contain GM genes. The farmers should sue Monsanto for polluting its crops! Before long, there won't be any non-GM corn or most other crops anywhere in the world. Who will be to blame? all the big Agri-businesses, like Monsanto, which put them out there. Who wants to bet they haven't taken prophylactic legal measures to be sure that they cannot be held legally responsible for the damage they've done?

Or you could have a "refeed" day instead of a cheat day. People think, "oh I can eat this entire pizza." No, those aren't the calories you want to indulge in on your "off" day. Inst…

I let go of the calorific foods. I eat the bad stuff at christmas, easter, someone's birthday etc. Probably 10-12 days a year. Other than that I really don't.

In the end you must choose between eating bad, feeling bad and looking bad, or eating good, feeling good and looking good.

Unless you make the decision to be a different person, you are wasting your time at the gym, stressing yourself out losing 10lbs only to gain it back again plus more. What's the point? Just enjoy your food, avoid mirrors & scales and be happy.

There's nothing wrong with cheat days. Don't let these articles dictate your diet. If cheat days work for you and help you stay on track keep doing it. I was avoiding cheat days because people kept hammering it into my brain that they were bad. Then I started doing cheat days and I dieted more regularly and kept that day as a goal. If I went over my calories on one of the days before my cheat day then I couldn't have the cheat day. Yes I have fast food on my cheat days because there's nothing at MdD's or Chick Fil A that's satisfying that's under 600 calories. And if I get that chicken sandwich yes I want the damn fries too!!! And that's what I eat on my cheat days.

Bottom line for me is stick to moderation best you can. I did weight watchers for many years and this helped to become more conscious of moderation and what it "costs" to binge!

Well i couldnt agree more with it. The world will forever be geared toward change and advancements into the future. We, as humans owe it to our future generations to teach our children any and all applicable learning skills. Think about it..it was calculated that we only use around 10% of out brains capacity, i can assume that that is our knowledge resource consumption and ability to learn...we shouldnt set a margin because of preconsumed notions of getting fat and lazy. Science( the propriotor of our knowledge) has taken so many turns in technologies and advancements in learning over the last 20 yrs that we can only apply the assumption that we are evolving..the robitics systems are bringing our manual labos industry to a halt and we know have the machines helping us to apply reasoning factors and logistics....its a machine age and our continuence apon advancement and knowledge in our children and future generations to come will determine our inheritance of survival and limitations that will otherwise enevitably lead to our extinction if not our own extermination.

as a person studied computer science... depends on what level you will be loading them with. If you push them into coding they might hate it as well. There are two types of people who enjoy the area. The ones who finds it exciting from start and the ones with prejudice but like it as they go more into it. So for the latter type, they might be scared before they figure out. But i think teaching them to make simple games on console applications later some with ui design as a team project they will enjoy it a lot. Most of us get that sort of beginner education at first year of university. But there is a huge load of information goes through you then. So personally speaking of my class, we didn't really have enough time to enjoy it because of narrow schedule.
To me, it's a great idea. Even minor courses of computer science is packed on its own at this era of technology. Also most of kids know how to use, or practical to learn how to use most of the applications on their own. So if the computer science education is laid around the middle school and high school atcertain level, the minor and major studies will be more efficient. Also this gives kids better sense in technology use, as we see most of them are using it only for social purpose; plus increases the quality of endusers.
