Weight Loss Tip: Protein is a necessary component of any healthy diet, but do not consume too much animal based protein. Some high protein diets recommend large quantities of animal based protein which can rob the body of calcium. Over time, this could result in decreased bone density and brittle bones, especially for women. Be sure to monitor your intake and balance your diet appropriately.
Libertarians should be opposed to government mandates forcing food companies to label genetically modified foods. We should support the free market and getting the government out of the food industry. Let’s not give more power to the FDA. Many companies already voluntarily label food containing no genetically modified ingredients.
“The federal government lacks constitutional authority to mandate labeling of products containing genetically-modified food. Furthermore, those who do not wish to consume genetically-modified products should be leery of federally-mandated labeling because history shows that federal regulatory agencies are susceptible to ‘capture,’ where the regulators end up serving the interest of the business they are supposed to control. In the case of labeling, federal agencies could redefine the meaning of ‘modified’ to allow genetically-engineered food on the market without fully-informing consumers of the presence of genetically- engineered ingredients. Instead of federal regulation, consumers should demand that manufactures provide full information and refuse to buy those products that are not fully labeled. Once producers see there is a demand for non-genetically-engineered products they will act to fulfill that demand. Of course, makers of genetically-engineered food should be held legally responsible if they fraudulently market their products or harm anyone”- Ron Paul.
Rand Paul’s recent NO vote on a bill requiring the labeling of genetically modified foods is causing quite a stir in the Ron Paul community. Over at the Daily Paul, a very heated exchange is underway including comments like this from ‘ freetoroam,’ ” He (Rand Paul) is a disaster and votes like this drive good Americans away from the Liberty movement.
