Yes or No on 92? Cut through the crap, and the answer will reveal itself.

Election tensions are be ramping up here in Oregon – on some issues more than others. In this past week, we received no less than three mailings from those representing the NO-side of Measure 92 – the Measure calling for labeling of genetically engineered (GE) foods. Per recent polls, the overwhelming majority of Americans favor labeling of GE foods – this one, from ABC, indicates a whopping 93% of us want to know exactly what we put in our mouths.

First, I suppose, we should define “genetically modified” v/s “genetically engineered”. Genetic modification is an age-old concept. From the murky beginnings, one of the cornerstones of emerging civilizations has been learning to manipulate seeds and bloodlines  in order to improve size and quality of crops and domestic animals.

About annamadeit

Born and raised in Sweden, my aesthetics and outlook on life are strongly shaped by a culture rich in history and tradition. I care a great deal about environmental responsibility, and my aesthetic reflects the visually clean, functional practicality and sustainable solutions that are the hallmarks of modern Scandinavia. I was trained as an architect at the University of Cincinnati and as a color specialist at the Scandinavian Colour Institute in Stockholm. I'm obsessed with plants and gardens, and aim to take my skill set a step further by designing gardens as well as interiors. As someone so aptly said: " Architecture is the skin that separates the exterior from the interior". So true - you can't successfully focus on one without incorporating the other. I'm also an avid cook, and I love to ski. In addition, I put time and efforts into trying to rectify things that I feel are wrong in my immediate community. As you will see, The Creative Flux will touch on all these things, and more. For sure, it's all over the map, but then again - so am I! Welcome to my blog!
