|Synthetic Biology is a more
extreme form of genetic engineering. Unlike older methods of genetic
engineering, synthetic biology techniques give corporations control over
strands of DNA. This allows synthetic biologists to create sequences that have
never existed before in any organism, and to splice genetic sequences in ways
that have not been available before.
Pollan calls for a new definition of food:
"Our national policies
subsidize the least healthful calories.
The "building blocks" of fast
food are soybeans and
corn, used to make
hydrogenated soy oil, the protein and starch in cattle and chicken feed, and
high fructose corn syrup used
in sodas and sweets.
That's what we've been heavily subsidizing,
encouraging farmers to grow more of, and that's what makes fast food so cheap.

|The ability of
Cannabis sativa to promote eating has been documented for many centuries by its
users to promote strong cravings for, and an intensification of the sensory and
hedonic properties of food.
These effects are now known to result from
the actions of cannabinoid molecules at specific cannabinoid receptor sites
within the brain, and to reflect the physiological role of their natural
ligands, the endocannabinoids, in the control of appetite.
developments in the biochemistry and pharmacology of endocannabinoid systems
have generated convincing evidence from animal models for a normal role of
endocannabinoids in the control of eating motivation.
|Hunger arouses sensory
perception, eventually leading to an increase in food intake, but the
underlying mechanisms remain poorly understood.
We found that
cannabinoid type-1 receptors promote food
intake in fasted mice by increasing odor detection.
receptors were abundantly expressed on axon terminals of centrifugal cortical
glutamatergic neurons that project
to inhibitory granule cells of the main olfactory bulb (MOB).
pharmacological and genetic manipulations revealed that endocannabinoids and

by decreasing excitatory drive from olfactory cortex areas to the MOB.
Consistently, cannabinoid agonists dampened in vivo optogenetically

intake via CB1 receptor signaling, linking the feeling of hunger to
stronger odor processing.
