at you, over weight, fat asses, big as trucks... The way you look today, is the result of your belief, the money value of food is more important then
its nutritional value.

The natural way... which way is that exactly? Farming is not natural. Natural is just gathering up whatever you can find, wherever it grows. Once man
began farming, it ceased to be the "natural way"
Lets look at the following scenarios:
There is a plant growing in a field, the plant sprouted without any intervention from humans. By all accounts, this is a totally "natural" growing
plant. Now, this particular plant is growing in soil that lacks nutrients, has a PH that is way off, gets exposed to too much wind, it's a little bit
too hot for this particular plant, and the air is a little bit too dry. The plant also doesn't get enough sun.
After studying this particular plant, someone found the ideal environment for this plant to grow. So, it was grown in a grow warehouse, using LED
lights. The soil is VERY rich in nutrients. The PH and moisture level of the soil is PERFECT for this particular plant. The light cycle is PERFECT,
the temperature is PERFECT, the humidity is PERFECT.
So for whatever reason you would be under the impression the plant in scenario "A" would be better? How? Care to explain why a plant grown in LESS
THAN IDEAL conditions is going to be better than a plant grown in IDEAL conditions, just because it happened to sprout without a human being involved
in it? That sounds borderline NUTTY in my opinion.
Although, I shouldn't be surprised by your lack of critical thinking skills, judging by the fact you can't contribute to a thread about GROWING
TECHNIQUES without insulting Americans. I mean honestly, where did that even come from? How off-topic and abusive can you really get? Grow up.

You eat the articicially grown ones, I stick to the ones grown in soil and under sunlight, okay!?
Why do people always jump for joy, everytime some scientist weirdos mess with our food that has served us well for millions of years??
OK, I will, if they are available.
Can you tell my how your sunlight grown veggies are better than ones grown with LEDs, HPS, or Metal Halide lamps? Do you have any science to back this
up, or just some nonsense you made up one day?
LIGHT IS LIGHT, do you fail to understand this simple concept? Plants only use a certain spectrum of light. If you reproduce that, it doesn't matter
if it comes from the sun, or a light bulb.
What makes these people weirdos? Because they are trying to solve a problem of not having enough arable land to feed the additional billions of people
we will be sharing this planet with in the future? What exactly are they doing that's screwing with the food? They have figured out the environment
that different plants grow BEST in, and then they reproduce that environment. These people are NOT Monsanto. They are not genetically engineering
crops. They are simply providing the best environment for each specific crop to grow in. Did you even research this at all? It doesn't seem like it.
Plants need the proper nutrients, atmosphere, water, and light to grow. If you give that to them, they will grow strong and healthy. It doesn't
matter if it's on a field or in a warehouse, the only difference is the way some ignorant people will respond to it.
