Last week, a reader posted a critical comment on an article I wrote that explained why, in my opinion, we as consumers should be concerned about genetically modified organisms GMOs entering our food supply. What the author also fails to mention, GMOs, developed for the 3rd world are designed to be pest and drought resistant as well as increase yield sizes.
By Christie Wilcox April 15, 6: Yet I, like so many people in the world, continued to drink it. Have you ever wondered why we, as a species, consume alcoholic beverages even though they taste terrible at first?
Addictions occur when the brain betrays the body, causing feelings of pleasure from activities that are unhealthy. The pleasure kick stimulated by alcohol, drugs or risky behaviors tells our bodies to repeat the behavior, starting a dangerous cycle that can be tough to break.
Understanding exactly what triggers the release of dopamine in the brain is key to understanding and preventing addictions and relapses. For alcoholics, previous research has found that even the sight or smell of beer is rewarding to the brainpushing them to drink.
David Kareken and his colleagues wanted to know whether the same was true of the taste. They also asked the men to report their desire to drink, and whether they had any family history of alcoholism. PET scan from the paper of brains after beer, revealing dopamine activity in the right ventral striatum.
They found that the very first sip of beer is enough to begin the neurotransmitter cascade.
Within minutes, dopamine was released by the ventrial striatum, and the men reported increased cravings for more.
The same effect was not seen when gatorade or water was substituted for alcohol. The men only received 15 milliliters of beer on their tongue over the course of 15 minutes through an automated sprayer, so there was no chance that changes in the brain were due to intoxication.
The release of dopamine in the brain is a powerful motivator, part of an intricate reward system that has been honed by evolution to encourage important behaviors like reproduction. Unfortunately, alcohol and other addictions take over this vital pathway in the brain, compelling us to do things we might otherwise realize are damaging.Genetically modified organisms are created mainly with a purpose to lessen world hunger and poverty in the world especially the malnourished children.
Nearly a million children die every year because they are weakened by Vitamin A deficiencies and an additional , go blind.

Creating a genetically modified organism (GMO) is a multi-step process. Genetic engineers must isolated the gene they wish to insert into the host organism.
GMO pollution caused by pollen drift is spreading in GM crops cultivation areas such as the USA and in Canada. GMO contamination will occur once GM crops are cultivated. Therefore, the co-existence between GMO farming and conventional farming or organic farming is very difficult (Keisuke, )%(1).
Grow Sensitive Plant from fresh Mimosa Pudica flower seeds. The Sensitive Plant is aptly named mainly because of it’s physical reaction to human touch.
Many Americans are concerned about the spread of genetically modified organisms throughout agriculture -- and the perception that some members of the U.S.
Congress are in the pocket of the.
