^Fine You eat all the pesticides you want. I'll keep trying to avoid them as much as possible.
Sigh, some people want to buy whatever is sold to them rather than do some critical thinking. The issue is not that the food has been genetically modified. It's how exactly they modified it. Some might be ok. But the chemical companies either make them more toxic or make them capable of withstanding more toxins dumped on them and in the soil. It's the pesticides that end up in the food.
And then there's the issues with the environment, the royalties & copyrights, bullying, the lawsuits, the contamination of other corps and the monopoly of our food supply. Our media never reports on any of this. Sarah Palin is right about one thing. We do have a lamestream media.
Our food has become so industrialized and our agencies that are supposed to protect us are servants for the industry and are completely unreliable, I chose to rely on the European scientific community. As far as I am concerned, European University & hospital research is reputable. Research by Monsanto & the like owned firms and USDA, FDA, EPA is not. Especially considering the number of former Monsanto people that fill the FDA.

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.
[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.
Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.
Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
