Yep, I actually do....

I actually work for the USDA grading/inspecting peaches and grapes during the summer, I see the fruit before it goes to Del Monte, Dole, Seneca, and other brands to be canned. Everything I see is pretty normal, no large genetically engineered hormone pumped peaches. The pesticides are used in moderation and only when necessary. The fruit is picked on the early side so it does not over-ripen and go bad on the way to the store, it just would not make sense to do it any other way. I can see literally tons of fruit daily during harvest, you would not believe how much bad fruit there really is (insect, sun damage, bruising, etc). The industry is truly amazing, people love bagging on it, I do not know why people got the notion that pesticides are just being injected in to the fruit on a daily basis. The state Ag department really regulates how much you can spray and how often, and believe me, it is not very often.

Firstly, I want to establish something.

Raise your hand if you really care, if you eat really healthily and you're worried about these additives.

Noone? Cool.

Now, I'm enjoying this debate. It's really informative.

I'd raise my hand to being concerned about eating healthy. But my definition varies from most "health nuts."

I live more on a "eat your three squares, and make all the food worth while" kinda diet. I eat 3 times a day (hardly snack.) And I make sure what I'm eating has a large diversity of ingredients, and thus more nutrients.

A good example is an average breakfast, Bacon & Egg omlette, nothing fancy there; though I add in herbs, and usually some green veggies to it (since they don't have flavor but give a crisp bite) and enjoy myself.

I'm normally more full from it, and I know I've eaten well.

Either way, that's my two bits on the whole thing; I love myself a Honey Bun, and I'm not worried about the 200% saturated fat or preservatives it contains. I'm more worried about balancing out my diet and just eating what I enjoy.

Avoid excessive salt, sugar and fat. Live a longer (and still) depressing life.

This is an HONEST QUESTION: I'm not sure if you've noticed but girls have been getting quite large breasts earlier on in life than in past decades. I used to live by my high school and when it was lunch hour and the girls would walk past my kitchen window my dad would always say "they never looked like that when I was that age!" and I tend to agree. Look at old photos, movies, etc. and you'll see a large difference. Girls are looking much older, younger. Often times I'll see an attractive young girl with large C's and then only to really look and see that they're 12 or 13 years old at the most. Do you believe that this is because of animal growth hormone or processed food in general?

After watching Food Inc., I think I'll steal that quotel; "The way we eat has changed more in the last 50 years than in the last 10,000 years." Do you think that this has contributed to the rapid physical development of young females?
I don't think it's just females, I think it's males too. I've been noticing that all kids/teenagers have been growing faster than normal. Breasts are just the easiest thing to notice

How do you think you get seedless watermelons if not for genetic modification? Or plants whos seeds don't produce 2nd generation fruit, so that you're forced to buy more seeds from the supplier each year?

And yeah I really don't know how things could be done differently so that fruit can be naturally ripened instead of truck ripened. I know it's hard as all hell with the amount of food that has to be distributed and how many people there are to feed. But that doesn't make it any better.

I dunno where the idea of injected pesticides come from though, I've never heard of such a thing.
