For those who enjoy dabbling with DNA for dollars by the dump-truckload, the news has not been all good. The big island of Hawaii recently passed legislation banning any new GMO operations on that island. I have also heard that China has rejected more than one shipment of GMO corn and Connecticut has passed GMO labeling legislation. In the Winter 2013 issue of this journal, Judith McGeary mentioned pending legislation in several other states and in Germany. Most of these new developments include major exemptions and labeling may not solve the problem. These efforts have raised awareness but we still have a long way to go before the GMO situation is under control. We still need more awareness.

The Phantom of the GMO is a parody which puts the message of GMO danger to the music of the Phantom of the Opera. It runs less than
four minutes. That raises awareness of the GMO threat and gets a thumbs UP.

Tim Boyd was born and raised in Ohio, graduated from Case Western Reserve University with a degree in computer engineering, and worked in the defense industry in Northern Virginia for over 20 years. During that time, a slight case of arthritis led him to discover that nutrition makes a difference and nutrition became a serious hobby. After a pleasant and satisfying run in the electronics field, he decided he wanted to do something more important. He is now arthritis free and enjoying his dream job working for the Weston A. Price Foundation.
