SPIRITUALITY SCIENCE – GREENPEACE vs GMOs


SPIRITUALITY SCIENCE – GREENPEACE vs GMOs 107 Nobel laureates signed a letter blasting Greenpeace over GMOs. I worked for Greenpeace USA at its Ann Arbor office from 1986 to 1996 but at that time GMOs was not on the top of our agenda. However, Greenpeace opposed use of chemical pesticides, insecticides and other chemical products that impact natural environment and compromise ecological balance. The term ‘food’ has to be defined to understand man’s relationship with food. To define food, we may have to recognize the functions performed by food. The functions performed are, 1. Provide substances called nutrients, molecules that … Continue reading SPIRITUALITY SCIENCE – GREENPEACE vs GMOs

QUINOA SMELL TEST – I AM THE SECRET INGREDIENT


QUINOA SMELL TEST – I AM THE SECRET INGREDIENT: This article promotes demand for development of a ‘POLYAMINE’ Database for assessing dietary intake of Polyamines(Spermine, Spermidine, and Putrescine). Reducing concentration of Polyamines in the body pool may slow the Cancer process as Polyamines are required for human cell as well as Cancer cell growth. Because dietary Spermine, Spermidine, and Putrescine contribute to the body pool of Polyamines, quantifying them in the diet is important. Development of this Polyamine Database provides a means of estimating Polyamine intake and contributes to investigations relating Polyamines to Cancer. “Griffin James Quinoa Challenge Award” recognizes the … Continue reading QUINOA SMELL TEST – I AM THE SECRET INGREDIENT

QUINOA – I AM THE SECRET INGREDIENT – MAGIC OF CREATION


QUINOA – I AM THE SECRET INGREDIENT – MAGIC OF CREATION: THE MAGIC OF CREATION: Detection of chemical molecules that stimulate the smell or olfaction sensation plays an important role in the survival of most animals. Smell is used for identifying and evaluating food, finding predators or prey, marking territory, and to stimulate reproductive activity. Several human traditions recognize and glorify importance of smell, scent, odor, fragrance, and aroma. Seven odors such as sweaty, spermous, fishy, malty, urinous, and musky have been described as primary odors. The genetic and molecular analysis of the mechanisms of olfaction are researched by Linda Brown … Continue reading QUINOA – I AM THE SECRET INGREDIENT – MAGIC OF CREATION
