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.

Josh,

100% agree. We're looking to move right now. Several in my community have run into issues over gardens with our HOA.

How old are your children?

My husband and I have been teaching my daughter, 15yrs old now, since she was 9 about the dangers of GMO's, Hormones, pesticides, etc. We eat mainly organic and always GMO-free. She has never had a problem going trick or treating with her friends and then giving them the candy to take home. We always took her to Whole Foods the day before to buy some candy to eat also. I have never told her she can't eat the candy she got on Halloween, it was always her own decision and there were times she would eat a snickers or something and that was enough for her. The coolest thing is that my daughter thinks it is so gross that people eat fast food. She hasn't had fast food since she was about 5yrs old and doesn't even remember it. She says the smell of those places makes her gag and can't imagine it tastes any better than it smells :)
I hope your wife comes around. We need all the clean (gmo-free) children we can get to keep our race alive in the future. With the studies, it shows that 3rd and 4th generations can become sterile. That would not be good for the future of the human race.
Maybe have her check out the documentary "Future of Food" it is a very good film for educating on the effects of GMO's in our food supply.

always remember freedom.

It is your freedom to eat right and do the things that will improve your life/health. It is her freedom to choose not too, and it is when the children are under one another control is when the decisions for the child should be made. If she is winning every time for the children to eat shit food... then maybe you are not presenting the idea fair enough/with a good solution right in hand. Or maybe you need to tell the lady that clearly you are not raising your children, she is.. and maybe you wont live with that.

as for you being crazy.... we all are a little crazy especially in a time of heightened awareness of the collapse coming. You must take over the finances and get into physical things and wipe away any debt the government can use over you. It time like these we must stop being a nagging old father and be a man

also, meditate and run...

also, meditate and run... that is how i have been relieving some stress

Balance, compromise, and moderation

Maybe you should see about a deal with your wife. Show her the rat study (I havent seen it), make your case, then compromise on what things you think are off limits but your wife thinks are okay. Maybe it's okay on holidays if you first both tell your kids that this candy should be very rarely eaten or preferably not at all. Your kids will still be in a much physically healthier environment and with a bit of balance and less friction it will be emotionally healthier as well.

The rat study was fraudulent

Check my postings. I can't link it on my phone.

Living in constant fear and paranoia is not healthy. Fighting with loved ones about sensationed "dangers" isn't worth it. Stress is bad for the body, too.

We feel your pain, bud.

We feel your pain, bud.

What would the Founders do?

Lead by example.

Don't talk about it anymore. Your wife already knows you're right. She just knows it's complicated to do anything about it.

You are losing it.

People in the GMO movement are fear mongering the hell out of everything. Do yourself a favor and take a long break from the whackjobs at NaturalNews. Enjoy your food and start havin fun with your family.

Ok then

I guess all that obesity and cancer is just caused by bad luck.

Nothing to see here, sheeple, move along.

Listen to me you intolerant dumbfuck. You are going to die.

All of your healthy eating, all of your alternative medicine, all of your obsessive efforts are all going to be in vain. You are going to die and there is nothing you can do about it. Living your life in constant fear, obsessing over a maximally healthy lifestyle to avoid death, and fighting with loved ones is not worth it.

You called his wife a "STUPID COW?"

I have never said this before to anyone on the DP, but FUCK YOU.

Can I send you some sweetener?

What is your point?

Do you think just bringing up 'aspartame' is making a point? Do you think it is self-explanatory?

Since you are so smart, why don't you explain to me the mechanism of toxicity for aspartame? Why is this chemical so evil that the mere mention of it's name counts as a valid argument for the NaturalNewsers?

Instead of fear mongering, why don't you start rattling off some biochemistry?

yeah well if they were crossing a pear with an apple I'd be ok

with it. But creating foods that have built in insecticide that hasn't been tested on humans long term is extremely dangerous. We know it kills insects....what is it doing to you? It's not like you can wash it off. It's like having corn laced with cyanide. Some people wonder why all of a sudden all stores are carrying gluten free stuff. It's not because it's a new fad. People are developing digestive disorders epidemically. My husband and daughter both are now suffering. And we keep meeting more and more people who have developed intolerances and allergies to food. So eat up buddy boy and tell your poor kids to open wide if you wish. It's a free country and you have the right to kill yourself slowly and destroy your digestive system if you wish.

If you don't know about the eugenics movement many of whom run this country, you need to start reading.

You won't live long but you'll have fun doing it.

Are you psychic? Have you evaluated my health?

Do you know my genetic profile?

Seriously I'm getting so sick of the arrogance of health fascists who think that their beliefs are the ultimate truth when it comes to nutrition and medicine. They are trying to scare everyone into adopting their beliefs. People are getting carried away with the fear mongering.

Monsanto's genetic material trespasses.

Any farmer found with infected (raped) plant material is sued for theft and patent infringement.

I would be against gmo patents at the very least. Patents that became necessary because of the USDA interventions.

A farmer should be able to sue the trespasser, the same as if a gmo bull had impregnated the farmers livestock.

Plus there have been no clinical studies to show gmos are safe for human or animal consumption. Or multi-generational studies to prove reproduction is viable.

No one has lived to 100 years eating GMO foods, for example.

Is it fear, or the products lack of qualifications as gras.

I have no reason to believe that I am not playing Russian Roulette with GMO.

Free includes debt-free!

Okay but this is a property rights issue

I thought this thread was about the safety of GMOs.You are changing the subject.

Why are you frightened by GMOs? What is the mechanism for its harm? How exactly is it poisonous?

And there are LOTS of studies done that demonstrate the saftey of GMOs.

"The European Commission Directorate-General for Research and Innovation 2010 report on GMOs noted that "The main conclusion to be drawn from the efforts of more than 130 research projects, covering a period of more than 25 years of research, and involving more than 500 independent research groups, is that biotechnology, and in particular GMOs, are not per se more risky than e.g. conventional plant breeding technologies"

What is the mechanism for its harm

The economic harm is egregious.

I am in no position to vouch for the European Commission Directorate-General's conclusion.

However their stated purpose is to:

To counterbalance the predicted increase in the world population to up to nine billion people by 2050, and the related implication of climate change, science has to develop technologies that increase yields and productivity in a sustainable way, while lowering the demand for fertilisers and pesticides, and adapting crops to match the effects of changes in the environment.

This is a policy report not a scientific study on the effects of GMO on individuals health and longevity.

"peer-reviewed scientific publications, will be invaluable
to researchers in public institutions as well as to experts in
risk assessment and risk management".

Here my assessment as a customer. It is too risky, risk managed.

Free includes debt-free!

If we are "health fascists" then you are a "health sheeple"

blinders never helped anyone make good decisions.

I think you keep the blinders on because you are too afraid to face what you might see if you take them off.

Name calling and fear!

That is all you have. I don't buy your fear mongering and your pseudoscience gibberish so I am a "sheep wearing blinders." Keep living in your fantasy world buddy.

I have tried to have scientific debates with the NaturalNews whackjobs but it is futile. They have no argument because there are no scientific mechanisms to explain the vast majority of the claims. It seems people prefer living in paranoid fearand have no interest in truth finding.

Good job being another mindless wasp defending the NaturalNews hivemind. You sure stung me good.

You are the name caller

You can't handle it when someone throws it back in your face. You are completely SCARED aren't you! You can't handle the truth because you are scared out of your mind. You can't even entertain the idea that we might be right because if you did you would curl up into a fetal position and cry yourself back to sleep. You are either so addicted to the crap food that you'll stab anyone with a fork who dares to point out the poison in it. Or, you are so scared or facing what you have been doing to yourself all this time that its just easier to deny it with a passion.

There is absolutely nothing SCIENTIFIC about anything you say. Go back to your thumb sucking.

You don't know anything about me.

You don't know fears. You don't know my thoughts. You don't know my eating habits. You don't even know what I look like beyond this picture.

Shut the fuck up and get a life.

You display your fears with your every post

You give yourself away. I can't help it if you are so transparent.

and so it goes

I think those of us that are awake grow accustomed to that kind of treatment. The ones who chide us the most are examples of the most severely brainwashed. The techniques used by the media to control people are very effective.

Hopefully the time when come that your wife awakens, too.

How condescending.

Buying into every crackpot theory Alex Jones and his ilk push and ignoring that most of them are wrong doesn't somehow make you enlightened, it just makes you a sucker.

But hey, you keep trusting Infowars for your health advice and I'll keep trusting professionals with medical degrees.

I don't play, I commission the league.

who said anything about AJ, etc?

go back to your troll hole.

You're crazy dude! [sarcasm]

Don't you realize that all of the claims made by Infowars and Natural News are 100% true?! Even the stuff that contradicts the other stuff! The most true claims are the ones that have no plausible scientific mechanism. They are true because Alex Jones and Mike Adams would not lie. Everyone has an agenda except for them.

Trust only Mike Adams and Alex Jones. Don't trust the tens of thousands of 'mainstream' scientists and physicians doing biomedical research. They are part of a massive conspiracy to poison the public through medicine and the food supply. Only Alex Jones and Mike Adams can be trusted!

Join the hivemind man before modern medicine kills you!

I think we all struggle with this kind of thing...

I sometimes wish I could go back to sleep as well, it seems like the whole world is against you, when your awake... LOL! The way we approach it in our house, is to just try and find a balance between the two worlds. We let the kids have their Halloween, but we don't let it go overboard. ie Halloween is not a whole week event.... we go out in the evening for 'trick or treat', and when the bags are 'reasonably' filled (personal judgement) we go home! I try to encourage them to choose the chocolate bars over colored candy, as I think it's just slightly closer to nature... than a bunch of 'colors' made with chemicals. (Also, I notice my kids go crazy when they eat food coloring... more so than the sugar.... like a switch gets flipped in the brain!) But, the deal is they eat a couple of pieces a day... over the next several days... and have to drink a lot of water to help their bodies process it. Then at the end of the week, I throw out the 'left overs'. I think 90% of the fun, is dressing up in costume and getting something every time they knock on a door.... the rest is gravy. Also, we don't generally have candy in the house as a rule, so I feel like once a year is not going to hurt them.

Yeah...tends to happen

It can't be helped that one doesn't feel so....'perky' or whatever when they find out that literally everything they knew is a lie...tends to take the 'perk' right out of ya.

Some people get angry or depressed, others get motivated, a few get protective and/or paranoid, and still others such as myself simply choose to grab a bag of popcorn.

My brother has an idea of what's going on, but he flat out told me that he doesn't want to even think about it, and that he doesn't want to see it coming (why?) At least my lecturing about gold/silver and taxes took, though...kinda.

As for Halloween...well they're not my kids so I obviously can't tell you what to do, but unless eating some candy on Halloween is going to have some irreversible effect, then I say let 'em. It's not as if their adult lives are going to be any fun...
