Cajun Kidney Bean Chili a hit with the seniors!: Dear Mr. Mateljan, I've been a fan and advocate of your World's Healthiest Foods website for several years now, and with each passing year, as my family cares more about health and wellness, I cook more and more of your recipes.

Last night I prepared your Cajun Kidney Bean Chili recipe to serve 20 senior citizens at our community center. Most of our senior guests liked the chili so much they had second helpings.

I have been reading WHFoods for a few years now, and I completely trust your insights.

GMO information: Thank you for the information you have posted on your site regarding GMO's and GE products. I have been looking for a balanced, thoughtful description of GMO's. It seems most information is laced with personal attacks on Monsanto or the concept of GMO's. While I appreciate individual opinions, those opinions do not help me to understand the concept and concerns of GMO's. As a wellness coordinator I like to provide information to my clients that is not laced with personal rhetoric. Instead I want to provide them factual information so they can choose for themselves what is best for their life. I will be recommending your site to my clients as a healthy lifestyle resource. Thank you so much. Respectfully. - AM
