Now what should we do with all of this information? GMOs have not been adequately tested on humans and is just one of the many reasons why they should not be consumed. With their long list of side effects that are present in animals, soon enough humans will be affected as well. Taking a stand against GMOs is key. If we want local farmers to continue growing their crops without genetic mutations, we need to support them by buying their produce rather than a brand name. Not only does buying locally grown produce healthier, but also gives promise that the healthy food you are purchasing will still be available for years to come. Although the pricing may differ, you are paying for the quality of the food and essentially, your quality of life. GMOs were not meant to be consumed and conflict with our body’s natural biochemical balance. By consuming GMOs you are putting your own life at risk. It’s your body and only you can decide what to put in it.
The researchers then also tried to make their comparison between States even fairer and yet more homogeneous by adjusting for clear population differences between the states including age, gender, race, education, income, marital status and employment status. Even with these adjustments. This still produced a very strong correlation between happiness levels and suicide rates although some states shifted their positions slightly. Hawaii then ranks second in adjusted average life satisfaction but has the fifth highest suicide rate in the country. At the other end of the spectrum, for example, New Jersey ranked near the bottom in adjusted life satisfaction (47th) and had one of the lowest adjusted suicide risks (coincidentally, also the 47th highest rate).
