Yes, I have often been concerned about the effect of Coast to Coast on people with mental illnesses, especially when you combine it with some of the medical topics regulars like Peter Breggin who may also be encouraging them to go off meds. A few years ago an MD got through the screener to confront George Noory about clearly schizophrenic callers and how the show deals with them. I don't remember what George said, but I'm sure he wasn't happy with the call. I think all C to C hosts are probably a party to this to one extent or another. But what can you do? This stuff is part if the culture, certainly not limited to talk radio.
I was in Seattle at a blues dance party and didnt get home til after midnight, so didnt hear too much if the show, but as I recall Chu basically sounded pro-GMO. I am not, myself. I'm still open to arguments but am quite concerned about the effects on human health, farming and the environment, not neccessarily in that order. WA had a GMO labeling initiative in Nov. It failed. I voted no but it was a tough call. Unfortunately it's become an issue drawn along party lines here. Food labeing itself is probably already adequate, excessive even. But as far as the general GMO question goes, here are some questions. Why are so many more people allergic to things like wheat and peanuts now? Why do corn products play such a big role in obesity now? I'm also concerned about the bees and butterflies and farmers who want to be non GMO being next to the other farms. I'm not proposing more government regulation, I'm just expressing my concerns.
