A group of 93 scientists from all over the world deplore the disinformation over the safety of GMOs and expose the lack of empirical and scientific evidence on which the false claims of “consensus” on safety are being made
"Whether to continue and expand the introduction of GM crops and foods into the human food and animal feed supply, and whether the identified risks are acceptable or not, are decisions that involve socioeconomic considerations beyond the scope of a narrow scientific debate and the currently unresolved biosafety research agendas.
These decisions must therefore involve the broader society. They should, however, be supported by strong scientific evidence on the long-term safety of GM crops and foods for human and animal health and the environment, obtained in a manner that is honest, ethical, rigorous, independent, transparent, and sufficiently diversified to compensate for bias.
Decisions on the future of our food and agriculture should not be based on misleading and misrepresentative claims that a “scientific consensus” exists on GMO safety."

According to a 2011 study published in The Archives of Internal Medicine, moderate drinkers tend to be thinner than teetotalers. Why? Ethanol—whether it's in wine, on the rocks, or in a pilsner glass—improves your body's response to the hormone insulin, which regulates blood sugar. Keep your blood sugar in check and you can prevent your body from shuttling glucose straight into your fat cells. One Harvard School of Public Health study even found that having one to two alcoholic drinks a day can reduce your risk of diabetes by 36 percent. Plus, by increasing your heart rate, alcohol actually fires up your fat burners for about an hour after you take your last sip, according to Eric Rimm, an associate professor of epidemiology and nutrition at Harvard Medical School and chairman of the 2010 review of alcohol in the federal dietary guidelines. One recent study from Japan even suggests that if you're a microbrew man, your post-drink metabolic boost might last a little longer. Why? The naturally occurring flavonoids in beer's hops can increase muscle mass. And as you know, more muscles equal a faster metabolism—not to mention a chiseled bod. Read more: http://bit.ly/19ZM0xx
