Irradiation creates free electrons which kill bacteria. Would irradiated food affect your gut flora?
Yes, but how do we go about enlightening the researchers regarding this?.. I only was going to say that one can do little to stop the "progress" or reverse the way things tend to unfold.

Re: Fresh milk and farmers cheese

They won´t be giving too much away this early otherwise someone will try to copy it. It has to be commercialised and the milk put into the export market. That appears to be its primary purpose, to enable the export of fresh milk by sea as against expensive air freight. I hope it's not irradiated or...

None of the articles on the subject lists the technicalities of their "process".

What is it?..

Re: Bamboo Flutes

I have no longer access to the material (imported bamboo without inter-nodes), and have sold almost everything. From the listed flutes in this topic, this one is still available: 001.jpg I can sell it for 20 mil to anyone visiting Vina-Valpo area. With respect to the other types, please note that th...

Re: Porotos, and their photos...

... the number of petals was more than it had to be (like, 7, 8, or 9, where there must be 5 petals exactly)... Now I remember them. The flowers of the wild strawberry plant they were, must be white with five petals exactly. I counted from 6, 7, to 9, more often than 5. It was rural setting, some 6...

Yeah here in the US double-yolked eggs don't make it to the grocery store, but the farmers get plenty of them
Maybe a dumb question, but how would the farmers know if the eggs were double yoked or not with out breaking them open?
The ones by two-headed hens -- they are generally double yoked.

Re: Porotos, and their photos...

This is the time of year where porotos granados are harvested and plentiful. There is no sorting, you have to buy a couple kilos and peel out the beans yourself. Yes, and this varies week to week. One week all vendors seem to sell "straight" and "normal' beans (I mean porotos "granados"), another w...

Re: Porotos, and their photos...

Cosmic radiation intensity due to weakening of the magnetic field especially in this part of the world? When being out in the sun, the sun does feel and seem more intense than a decade+ back. No, this is all the biodegradable plastic bags entering our food chain. On a serious note, back in 2009 -- ...

Re: Porotos, and their photos...

I don't believe this is about GMO. I first started to notice the change to the beans while living in the Temuco area, around 2010 0r 2011. Prior to that, there was no "screwed" beans whatsoever -- in the Temuco market or in the feria. Currently, however, the change is related to so many other fruits...
