Genetically Engineered Food Alters Our Digestive Systems

These days if you eat in North America, and increasingly all around the world, you are probably ingesting genetically modified organisms. If you eat a lot of processed food you are eating a substantial amount.

These genetically modified organisms have so many ways to harm our bodies it is truly flabbergasting when you come across someone who still believes they are somehow going to save the world.

The Gift of Typhoid

The Gift of Typhoid

I was given a melted popsicle from a local ice-cream seller while visiting a pagoda in the suburbs of Yangon/Rangoon. It was a bit of a surreal experience. The old man smiled so kindly as he eagerly handed it to me. He was so sweet and toothless. He had come across me as I was trying to find ...
