Crazy GMO Debate Fueled by Pseudoscience

At Slate, I have a short post that begins:

The debate over genetically modified foods operates between two gradients: carnivalesque and politicized pseudoscience.

I have some fun poking a stick at Bill Maher. I guess that makes me the David to his Goliath. Oh well. Enjoy.

    Heh. The comments over there are cracking me up. From the three-letter acronym instructions for you, to the two Erics who are fighting over the name….

    This battle really does bring out the humor at least.

    The desire to know about more the foods we’re eating still exists despite the disappointing  failure of the GMO labeling mandate of Proposition 37.  If you want to avoid GMOs in your food, there are still alternatives, including buying organic, as any product that carries the USDA organic seal cannot contain GMOs. In addition, be sure to pay attention to the little stickers on your grocery store produce. The numbers on these sticker  indicate how the produce was farmed: 4 digits = conventionally farmed, likely subjected to herbicides and/or pesticides; 5 digits, beginning with 9 = organic certified, no GMOs, pesticides, or herbicides; 5 digits, beginning with 8 = conventionally farmed and GMO, almost certainly subjected to herbicides and/or pesticides. Stay healthy!

    @2. I’m a panicky mess because I think everything around us (chemicals, GMOs, Lady Gaga etc) is going to give me cancer. Can you recommend any good all natural/organic supplements that are good for anxiety?
