It’s disturbing walking through HEB, and seeing overweight Hispanic families attempting to find good food for their families. It is hopeless because the food has been rigged against them, and more against them than any other segment of the country.
As Hispanics have developed diabetes, the government tells them that they have a genetic predisposition to diabetes which is why they have more than other groups. Or it tells them that they feed their children poorly, or it tells them they don’t get enough exercise. What it doesn’t tell them is the truth.

The Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) also recently approved a GM corn made by Dow AgroSciences (DAS-40278-9). This GM corn is resistant to 2,4-D, half of Agent Orange, which is responsible for decades of birth defects in Vietnam.
