I read a good blog post discussing the naturalistic fallacy and the fact that "organic" (at least in the US) is basically a marketing term. What a grand marketing ploy it has been, too.
The only thing "organic" food has that "non-organic" food doesn't have is MORE DIRT.

Re: GMO foods.

There is no radiation in irradiated food. it just means radiation was used to kill any germs and nastyness.

it does not give off radiation.

Dammit, and I was hoping I could buy Halloween pumpkins that glow in the dark all by themselves!

Re: GMO foods.

GMOs are inevitable but we need more testing before we commit ourselves to any path we cannot reverse out of. And the idea of companies charging for future generations of seeds grown from crops by the farmers themselves cannot be tolerated.

I quite like raw meat dishes, and they are quite common in my father's region cuisine (Piedmont). The most famous I probably carpaccio, ultimately derived from carne all'Albese (raw meat with lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, Parmigiano cheese and sometimes white truffles). I also very much enjoy raw fish dishes like sushi, sashimi, or Italian swordfish. If they are fresh and competently prepared, raw meat/fish dishes pose virtually no health risk.

Re: GMO foods.

^Culturally, raw meat dishes are big for me too. My mom is Native American, so you get raw seafood mostly (seal, mussels, oysters, geoduck) and I've had all of those, but they gross me out just as much! I know raw meat dishes are safe to eat, but the texture always gets to me.

Re: GMO foods.

Yeah, I can understand that, the texture can be unsettling. I guess it's one of those things you either love or hate.

I'm not a fan of seafood in general: geoduck sounds like a Pokemon. And it looks as much as wierd.

Re: GMO foods.

^ It is weird, but it's great fun to dig for when you're a kid (and pronounced gooey duck, if you didn't know). They're incredibly fast, so very hard to catch. There's even an old song about them: You can hear the diggers say as they're headed for the bay/"O, I gotta dig a duck, gotta dig a duck a day". I've never caught one myself, but my sister did when we were kids!

Re: GMO foods.

Geoduck, panope in French. I googled "panope recette" (recipe), it didn't give me great results.
You can be proud, you found something that a French wouldn't cook

Re: GMO foods.

^ Though, to be fair to the humble geoduck, it lives only in the Pacific Northwest US, and is hard to catch, so it's not that surprising that only the Pacific Northwest Indians have geoduck recipes. Though apparently it is a delicacy in Japan!
