A few weeks ago, I spoke by phone with Cathleen Enright, executive vice president of the Biotech Industry Organization (BIO)..
During the course of our conversation, when we touched on the subject of the science behind the debate over whether or not GMOs are “safe” (me arguing that there’s no scientific consensus) Enright said, “Then you must not believe in climate change, either.”
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: The documented accounts of the damage done by Monsanto far outweighs the giant's claims.

In a brief encounter with a total stranger, I finally realized an insight that has taken me years to grasp. In a world where we long for everything new, bright, and shiny, I had come to be OK with, embrace, and even appreciated the dents, dings, and damage that life inevitably brought my way...

Years ago, I overheard one of my daughter’s friends complaining about her mom being on a “menopause roller coaster,” and then groaning: “We can’t take her anywhere!” Granted, menopause does crazy things to your moods, but it’s important not to let this be a license to be a shrew. If you use menopause to excuse bad behavior, it can undermine your self-respect and damage your relationships...

Editor's Note: Ultrasound has become so common with pregnancy, that we don't even think twice about what it could be doing to the growing child.
