A New Study on GMO Maize

Even among the scientific community intelligent enough to be skeptical of the anthropogenic global warming hypothesis, I often come under fire for my lack of support of genetically-modified food.  Many of these people do not even understand that genetic modification is completely different from selective breeding–in fact, it technically creates new species.  Nor, apparently, are […]

On Calories and Weight Loss

Calories: the bane of every dieter. Except, we see how well that’s working for us in the modern U.S. What are calories, and how important are they?
