    Texas is the worst place I have ever been in this country. I see no redeeming quality except for the fact that most Texans wouldn't want to live any place else. And that is just perfect for the rest of Americans.

    Everytime GM foods take a hit from an insider saying they are not healthy, all of a sudden sprouts are the bad guy. It's a con! Set up by the elite! Label GM foods like Obama promisted!

    I thought it was bean sprouts that was used in Chinese food, not alfalfa sprouts. I would think that alfalfa sprouts would just kind of fade away when cooked...

    Oh, snap, I live in one of the states! Good thing I don't care for alfalfa sprouts in my salad...

    Hi! Merry Christmas!
