    • Google the "Zombie Apocalypse " and check out more wonderful Youboob informational videos :)

      besides the youtube rants (i am fascinated people look to youtube considering the consistent misinformantion and spin/markeing of such videos) I did see this article near the top...since it had some actual emperical data, I thought I would share. I picked it up in mid article, which was about the GMO rants going on world wide, and the cancer myth.

      "Are we more cancerous today than we were in 1996? Actually, not by a long shot:

      Source: National Cancer Institute, SEER Cancer Statistics Review 1975-2010.

      The results are even more pronounced when focusing on cancers of the stomach, colon, and rectum, which all show a persistent and significant downtrend throughout the entire tracked period across race and gender divisions. If we're eating ourselves to death, shouldn't our digestive systems be the most damaged by these Frankenfoods? Cancer statistics don't back up anti-GMO claims at all, and with more than 16 years in the food supply, you'd expect there to be a statistically significant change. The one statistically significant spike on these graphs, occurring around 1990, is often blamed on the Chernobyl disaster.

      There has been an increase in death rates from chronic liver disease and cirrhosis in recent years, by about one person per 100,000 from 1999 to 2010 -- but keep in mind that these liver problems are typically alcohol-related. Simply noting a slight statistical uptick isn't enough to blame on modified crops. People might just be binge-drinking more."

      Theories do abound.

    • Google it? Don't you know or are you waiting for your face on a milk carton?
