notexactly: But can I still go to Whole Foods for De Cecco pasta because I actually like the brand? :|
» SFB says: Yes, as long as I can get the hookup on my Rice Dream ice cream-like substance and still buy my Dr. Bronner’s, even if the bottle gets a tad preachy and is arguably guilty of what the post implies.
But here’s the point I’d like to make on that Daily Beast post. GMOs are definitely a huge issue nowadays for a lot of people. I feel like, reading between the lines of the post, Schulson is essentially calling people silly for being concerned that their food might have GMOs. I think there’s a valid point about raising questions about such foods, simply because they did in fact take over the food supply rather quickly and without very much input from consumers. That doesn’t mean it’s good or bad, but his stance on the issue is offered only in passing despite the criticism offered.
I’d like to see Schulson do a follow-up piece on this issue, which probably needs to be unpacked separately and needs more research and less ranting. (FWIW, a strong anti-GMO proponent did change his stance not too long ago, comparing his former stance to being a climate change denier.) — Ernie @ SFB
If Yanukovych ever got elected president, it would be the biggest disaster for Ukraine.Talk about psychic. A Ukrainian ex-journalist, translator and guide said this on Yaukovych a while back.
