    And I read the article. It does not attribute it to "modern food."

    I never said it did. I just responded to your general question.

    If you look around and see all the kids with Type 2 diabetes, asthma, etc., I suspect the question will be whether or not advances in the good areas of medicine will outpace the detrimental effects of food quality, lifestyle, etc.

    I don't know if it's true or not, but it seems to me that there is a lot more cancer nowadays than there used to be. All I have to go by are my parents' generation, and mine. Most of their generation seemed to die of things other than cancer. But in my world, the people I know, there is always 2 or 3 people going thru cancer treatment, or dying of it. Our diet is a lot different than our parents' was, for sure. Lots more prepared food, additives of all kinds, sugar, etc in peoples' diets now. And I am certain that we were healthier kids than the ones I see now. It was rare to see a fat kid when I was growing up. We were outside playing, getting into trouble, getting broken bones, breaking windows with our baseballs, going fishing, working on yard jobs for our spending money, and hated sitting around inside. A lot of kids are overweight now, and a lot of them spend a lot of time indoors either at school or sitting in front of TVs and computers at home. For us a soda pop was a big treat that we got occasionally. A lot of kids now drink several per day.

    I don't seem to get taken seriously when I say this but the "UN agenda 21" is all about what is going on. it's no secret it's on line, look it up !!
    This is not derailing , it has every thing to do with the subject at hand .
    It is a population control agenda.

    I'm sure hoping that this is sarcasm.

    Our planet is a closed system - a vivarium, with so much arable land, so much water, and so much air. The "green revolution" of pesticides, fertilizers, and medicines allowed us, at a price being discussed in this thread, to postpone the day of reckoning for our overpopulation of the Earth. In my adult lifetime, we passed 3,000,000,000 souls, raced past 6,000,000,000 souls, and now speed towards 9,000,000,000, only some of whom can be adequately fed. Why do you think those poor people in Bangladesh build houses on slits over the Bay of Bengal - where the next cyclone will kill its hundreds of thousands? They have to, even as their national height and weight decline due to national chronic starvation. https://www.wfp.org/stories/10-facts-about-hunger-bangladesh

    You think there is no limit? I hope you know better.

    Below is an article about a report put out by the EU regarding the dangers of pesticides and the advantages of organic food.

    From the article:

    Thanks for your concern.

    I'm good.

    I want to try to stay that way, too.

    But I agree with you to this extent--the Frankenfood that is out there is crap.

    IMO, Increased cancer risk, infertility and preventable diseases from lack of nutrition can all be attributed to GMO food.
    I saw this coming 20 years ago.

    The fake food is bad enough but the petroleum based packaging it comes in is just as bad. Glass jars are still here but what happened to day old newspapers for fish, plain waxed brown butcher paper for meats, cheese, breads and other soft bulk items.
