To save space can I respond to three members posts.
Woodgreen Wonderboy. I first became interested in the NF back in the mid 1950's As a lad I had read RM Ballantyne's book. 'Children of the New Forest' That did it for me, from then on up until the death of my wife in 2010 I/we spent many happy weeks etc in the forest. I carried out quite a bit of research there and at time would bump into some proffesors, on holiday but still studying. My eldest daught lives in East Boldre. For students and the like, it offers so much. Like you said wildlife is sparse. Thanks for you imput.
Dove and Gemma, so nice to be able to converse with those in the 'know'. Actually however hard I have tried, at the end of the day papers relating to GM's seem to be in short supply. Thankfully I have access to Wiley Library, as being of the Linnean Socy. and the BSPP.
True I have no concrete proof of GM's being related to obesity. However, as I am also interested in medicine, and reading various journals etc. I have discovered that shortly following the introduction of GM's and the feeding of carnivor remains etc to herbivours, the setting that alongside the medica revelations pointing to obesity. That started to ring bells. To be honest I have to admit, due to the lack of written documentation relating to GM's viz exactly what the GM contains etc. Then in my own way testing out various formulations. Finally I concluded that. The chemical makeup of various GM's = rapid growth and greater productivity. So for the less minded. Crops suddeny produced more. Animals grew so much faster so as to provide a quicker route to the table etc. So asks Mike. All this has come about so fast. Yes across the world there were protests, but the world needs feeding. So we have a substance that can work magic. OK for the vegative crop, it is sown, grows and is harvested. Then The Allen family do the weekly shop. Yes a nice joint of beef and plenty of veg. We digest. Big question mark.. What have we done? Back to basics and simple questions. So a great advancement in science. The supermarket are full as never before. However. Can anyone come up with an answer to this question. When at what point or tgime period, does the GM's stop working? On the basis of this. Is it at all possible that once digested, that despite our human makeup, so we all have to get reid of our waste. By that time the natural goings on inside of us have acted like the tax man, and taken out so much. I am of the thinking that. Those GM thingies continue to work within us. Givce it some serious thought. Obesity is not just rife in Britain. It is in fact a serious problem worldwide.
Once again Dove and Gemma for your imput.
