agree.....Costco customers have some wfm like choices....still don't think wfm customers much go to costco though. No one I know (that goes to wfm) anyway.
Also don't think Amazon will much cut into any grocers business in a significant way...but have no data to support that ....perhaps someday Amazon will break out food sales in their reporting ((maybe they do already...I haven't looked)
OK...now I am very dissappointed in Mr Adams...I read his article in more detail...and came across this section as his "rational thinking"....."
The tragic lesson of lead arsenate pesticides
This presumption of safety sooner or later ends very badly. For over a hundred years, the heavy metals pesticide lead arsenate was "presumed safe." Made primarily of lead and arsenic, it was indeed very effective at killing pests that threatened food crops. So farmers across North America and around the world sprayed it on their food crops, producing amazing quantities of food... at first, anyway.
Before long, the lead and arsenic bio-accumulated in agricultural soils, poisoning the trees that produced the food as well as the customers who ate it. To this day, soils across the world remain heavily poisoned by these deadly heavy metals, which is one of the reasons why so many superfood products sold today contain such high levels of heavy metals (see the Natural News Forensic Food Lab results for examples).
Lead arsenate -- just like GMOs -- was "presumed safe" because it didn't cause immediate death to anyone. According to corporate-sponsored prostitute-scientists, anything that doesn't kill you within seconds is automatically presumed to be safe. All long-term implications of the chemical or technology are willfully swept under the rug and ignored. Corporations lean on government regulators until the cover-up becomes policy. At that point, both government and industry become active collaborators in the mass poisoning of the human race."
Problem is, when I looked up the issue, he misrepresents the real issue and risk considerably. Do you see anything in his article that shows the pesticide was used primarily in apple orchards ? He very much implied it was for all food crops....did he note the orchard use resulted in the top foot of soils having 3-5 times what the underlying soils could have naturally ?
fear mongering hack imo
for some reason the "more" link on your post wasn't active.
But I searched it up....he was writing about the same topic reviewed here last week....the "risk/financial experts" a few others posted. I recall most agreed that was a very interesting article.
I too am skeptical, of both sides of this issue, but honestly find so many anti gmo posts to be disengenious.....I tend to fall in the neutral band of the issue because the the damage I think they do to their own cause.
I do think highly processed foods, and corporate farming to have health and eco sustainability concerns, but don't think anything shows gmo crops to better or worse in their contribution to those concens.
does it tell how much vacation time I have left this year ?
just kidding...it is interesting looking at some of the metrics on that site.
russia is an urban legand, perpetuated by the corporate miliatry machine...actually Sweden occupies that space on the map.
imo, most of the western central banks don't even have vaults....they are only PO boxes for collecting fiat paper.
Health Myth: Are GMOs Actually Bad for You?
BY K. Aleisha Fetters
yep, same one :) I see she has an excellent one on Fruits and Veggies to in Womens Health also
It now appears you are being sarcastic. You could not possibly be sitting Readers Digest like articles as a serious reference. But on the plus side it beats 1 minute videos, which is where about half the people get their "information" these days.
since posters like this don't work in industry, or gov''t...their only exposures to such oganizations is in movies or TV. Hence the conspiriacy theories.
That hundreds of people on each side of corp/gov't approvals are involved in such decisions....well, mr fun must think they all have some vow of secrecy and blood oath than keeps them from talking.
Mr fun....can you name one US bribery example between any corporation and govt agency in the last say 30 years ?
no, his was not a wasn't a paste and click...that was my point. He cited "By Details Magazine | Healthy Living – Mon, 3 Mar, 2014", and that was not a scientific paper either, is is like some mens health or some other urban rag.
go to the publication he cited...search the term "Are GMO's really bad for you"
click on the first article...whose title is
Health Myth: Are GMOs Actually Bad for You?
And here is the first two paragraphs "
GMOs, a term that's thrown around all the time but rarely understood, have been taking a lot of flack lately. The latest confusion and controversy has prompted Whole Foods to pull Chobani yogurt from its shelves and General Mills to remove all GMOs from boxes of Cheerios. But how many people actually know what they are?
GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) are plants and animals that have had been created through gene splicing—the merging of DNA from different species to make a new one. Many strains of alfalfa, canola, papaya, zucchini, soy, sugar beets (a main source of white sugar), and corn (which is pretty much in everything) are genetically modified, according to the Non-GMO Project. And while we're really just starting to talk about GMOs, we've actually been eating them for more than two decades."
then, if you go further down, you can see where mr spin pulled his text from.
And thanks for the insults....it keeps my saying of people that call others idiots usually end up looking that way themselves.
just the "man" with his jack boot in your back...keeping you down. Long live the revolution...and wear comfortable shoes !!
meta-implications....I dig that daddy o, I am way into the meta zone.
check this out dude "A Meta-Analysis of Fear Appeals: Implications for Effective Public Health Campaigns" good reading, google away.
so, if I look at those indices, I should see them inversely correlated to PM prices ? (when dollar down, silver up ?) I'll check it out
blaming it on "they" really ? I just went and looked at US public debt levels, and one of the lowest debt levels back around 1980 was when silver last hit a spec peak, and US public debt doubled (roughly) in the last two years, and PM dropped significantly....no matter what the reason, if someone is proposing global silver or gold prices follows US debt....I see no historical data to support it. None. So why keep saying that will be the reason ?
I see supply and demand as being the best logical case myself.
I don't believe the price of silver or gold correlates directly with US debt if that is what you meant. I do believe it correlates with the rate of inflation, which has some correlation with monetary system debt....but not entirely.
If it did, how did debt double or triple in the last few years, and PM prices drop ?? That is what correlation means. It's all connected is just a bit to vague for me to base investing my worthless money on.
not if I had to spend more time and money driving just to save a buck or two on a particular item. And especially if I had to actually go and compare item to item to see which was cheaper...that is cheap skate based shopping, and most people don't do that unless they have nothing better to do (I have to work for example)
I should probably re state it...I have never heard of a regular wfm shopper decide that Costco would replace their shopping at wfm. I agree that some wfm shoppers go to Costco, and I am sure some go to 7 11 also. I personally think people shop at all kinds of places...at least I do.
dollar bagholders :) why are you posting about currency traders on a commodity slv website ? Who do you know that invests in currency ?
kids, can't see the forest for their stack of silver.
