    I Will Not Eat GMO Foods

    I feel that genetic tampering is irresponsible, and genetic tampering with our food is wrong! We pay extra and are diligent to find organic whole foods. Feed your family, don't feed the corporate beast!

    Organic Foods

    I don't usually eat organic food.  I may buy something organic once in a while.  I don't know if this is true or not, I heard if someone has cholesterol, organic foods can help.

    All food is "organic" - yes, even Twinkies. Take a freshman biology class for goodness sake. Some money grubbing advertising executives have tried to re-define the word and a bunch or fools have gone along with it. Please stop falling for the hype and think. Arrrgggghhhh...
