Food- GMO crops destroyed and junk food addicted rats

Speaking of food, poor quality garbage, GMO's, artificial sweeteners, glucose/fructose sweeteners, pesticide laden produce etc., some are fighting back.

Activist destroy gmo crops

Before dawn Sunday, about 70 masked activists associated with the European protest movement Faucheurs Volontaires -- or Voluntary Reapers -- pulled 70 experimental grape vines by their roots and chopped them to pieces, said Jean Masson, president of the National Agricultural Research Institute, or INRA, in eastern France.

Police detained about 60 people, questioned them and then released them pending charges.

The vines were part of a transgenic experiment to develop disease-resistant plants at the INRA research station and had been attacked once before by a lone activist.

In a communique, the Faucheurs Volontaires said the grape vines were "neutralized" because "this experimental field was a first step toward imposing this type of agriculture, which is currently forbidden."

Junk food-addicted rats chose to starve themselves rather than eat healthy food

A diet including unlimited amounts of junk food can cause rats to become so addicted to the unhealthy diet that they will starve themselves rather than go back to eating healthy food, researchers have discovered.

In a series of studies conducted over the course of three years and published in the journal Nature Neuroscience, Scripps Florida scientists Paul Johnson and Paul Kenny have shown that rats' response to unlimited junk food closely parallels well-known patterns of drug addiction -- even down to the changes in brain chemistry.
This story seems to lead in perfectly to the next post (which is actually the first post today)
on the obesity problem. How it could have came about?

Could it have been all that fast food, processed food, dyed and sweetened food, that caused the obesity epidemic? What about the push for GMO's? How will that affect humanity?
