Wife thinks I'm losing it...

Sometimes I wish I had just taken the blue pill and can go back inside the Matrix. My wife and I are at odds over quite a few issues lately...GMO foods is the latest. After the French gmo rat study...I don't want the kids near the stuff. This is causing all kinds of friction over sodas, eating out, etc. The argument last night was over Halloween and the HFCS in the candy I don't want the kids eating.

She thinks I'm losing it and have turned into the most UNfun person around. Maybe she's right.

GMO, Chemtrails, Agenda 21, 9-11, coming dollar and financial collapse, etc, etc, etc,....it just never seems to stop. This rabbit hole I'm in seems to be a bottomless pit.

Balance is key

to making it through life.

Work with your wife, give and take, compromise. What good is it to be right and miserable, as time goes on maybe your wife will see what you see, and you both will be on the same page but until then give a little.

I used to have to print articles that I knew my husband would read and bring it to him gradually he began researching on his own and now we both work together.

Good luck

Yeah. I was much happier

Yeah. I was much happier/carefree before I stumbled upon this stuff. Sometimes I wish I was still ignorant.

The point of life is to be happy

Halloween candy is bad for you in a hundred different ways even before you consider GMOs. It's nutritionally void, full of sugar, fattening, teeth-rotting, etc.

But it makes kids crazy happy for a few hours.

The point of life is to be happy. People don't want to be libertarian - they want to be happy! I'd recommend that you take the blue pill for a few hours on halloween, let the kids be happy for a bit. They won't perish if they have a couple Kit Kat's. If anything, turn it into a lesson of moderation and let them make the choice for themselves. Live for personal freedom first, that's what you can effect.

Just my opinion. My kids already have their costumes.

Peace!

I know where

Your coming from. My wife has no interest in any issues that face our nation. Are you passing out the same candy to other children that you don't want your kids to eat? Halloween is something the kids look forward to every year so I guess weening them off the candy is what I would do. I would make my own trail mix of course with a few m&ms added for fun. Good luck.

On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.

I wouldn't be able to pass

I wouldn't be able to pass the stuff out if I wouldn't let my own kids eat it.

I was a bit oblivious of GMO until it started hitting the headlines daily on all of my favorite alt. news sites. The French rat study was a wake up call. Obviously...more study is needed and there are potential flaws/issues with the French study...still..my gut tells me there is more fact than fiction in that study.

Your "gut" would be the most precise indicator.

Because that is where the problems begin and develop. I know you used "gut" as meaning "intuition", but I mean it literally.

The GM hybrid semi-dwarf wheat seems to be the source of many problems. Couple that with HFCS and you've got a destructive mess for the digestive system to deal with.

I gave up wheat and all wheat-related products 9 weeks ago, and have had 29 pounds melt off like magic. My migraines are gone and I sleep like a baby instead of waking up in the middle of the night. Heartburn also greatly reduced.

Have your wife listen to this interview with you....

I think that if you present her with an opinion by an "expert", she may start to open up to what you are saying.

Best of luck. This is a very important issue, and kudos to you for trying to protect your children's health.
