Genetically-modified foods are bad for the food supply

The issue of alcohol abuse is now on the front burner in this valley. I believe one of the most significant steps we can take, is to offer life-saving information and education to turn this around.

Within the past 110 years or so, there were key people that have permanently altered our entire world for the worse:

W.R. Hearst, Lammot Dupont, John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie are great examples of bankers, petro-chemical owners, industrial pharmaceutical backers and oil industry monopolizers. What they did as a “team” was destroy in large part sustainable agriculture (i.e. the hemp industry, suppress and destroy natural medicine and treatments) and establish an alliance with government that ensured their agenda ruled the day.

This historic beginning in our country has become so disastrous, that it touches each and every one of us every day. Your life is now ruled by the Corporate Bottom Line whether you know it or not.

Alcohol abuse is exacerbated by the appalling condition of our present food supply which is riddled with lifeless, indigestible materials, fast food, chemicals, drugs and toxins of all descriptions. Because of this, much of our art, architecture, cinema, music, literature and sculpture are devoid of the raw essence of beauty. The facade of beauty is there, but the inner seeds are not.

No other civilization has ever produced so much pollution and ugliness. There are exceptions of hope, of course.

Through an awareness of some of the worst threats to public health, and a return to sustainable agriculture, we can put nutrition and healing for our bodies and the environment back where it belongs.

Genetically Modified Food, known as GMOs, unlabeled in our food supply have the most direct threat to human health. Knocking this element out of our food supply will have one of the most drastic effects on chemical dependency for our children, making us healthier individuals and lessening the desire to abuse substances because of sound nutrition.

Letter: Wrong place for the whale

In my opinion, our city fathers exercised bad judgment in locating the whale sculpture where they did. It is hidden from view. Read more

Letter: A state income tax is fair and equitable

The courage and integrity of our legislators will be tested. Last year they failed to step up to the plate. Our courageous governor had the fortitude to do so. The time has come for Alaskans and those who work here to pay for the services received. Read more
