While America’s food police have thus far been largely unsuccessful, control over food choices is a global goal. This weekend, two foreign developments took direct aim at dinner plates—including Americans’. First, two “non-governmental organizations”—read “activist groups not elected by or … Continue reading
Activists trying to force labels onto genetically improved foods (GIFs) have a black eye: Almost all of them selectively endorse scientific consensuses, picking and choosing which ones to support based on their preconceived radical environmentalist ideologies. This week, we’ve seen … Continue reading
