The tomato is my favorite thoroughly hybridized fruit.

The modern U.S. tomato contains genetic components of potato, eggplant, and pepino. [1]

The original tomato was small, yellow, ribbed, hollow, and contained no sucrose.

The Aztecs always cooked their tomatoes. [2]

The Pueblos ate its seeds for divination. confusing tomatine poisoning with a spiritual quest.

The glycoalkaloids dehydrotomatine and alpha-tomatine are not catalysts for spirituality.

Ditto the DMT molecule in ayahuasca (EYE-a-wasca).

The Italian Christopher Columbus (Cristoforo Colombo) probably introduced tomatoes to Europe in 1493.

Tomatoes were regarded as peasant food because they grew so near to the ground.

Tree and animal food were designated aristocratic food, while vines (tomatoes) and roots (potatoes) were considered declasse. [3]

Tomatoes were believed to be poisonous, and they were unless you cooked them. [4]

The greener the tomato, the more toxic tomatine is in it (still true today).

Tomatine has even been used in vaccines as an organic adjuvant to help “mobilize the immune system.”

Adjuvants are called the “dirty little secret of vaccines.”

(Examples of inorganic aduvants are aluminum phosphate and aluminum hydroxide.)

Alexander W. Livingston (1821-1893) was the first person to extensively hybridize the tomato.

It took him years of selective in-breeding and cross-breeding to make them …

(1) tastier

(2) fleshier

(3) redder

(4) larger

(5) smooth-skinned

(6) uniform in size and shape

The next person to get his hands on the tomato was Luther Burbank (1849-1926).

He developed the Burbank tomato in 1914.

A Burbank tomato has the highest total free form amino acid content of all known tomatoes.

A beefsteak tomato has ZERO protein, yet has more muscle-building power than beefsteak.

The abundance of amino acids in a tomato are equivalent to injectable-grade free form amino acids.

For example, glutamate is largely responsible for a tomato’s flavor, but the glutamate is unbound, unlike the glutamate in meat, fish, cheese, or MSG.

The post-Luther Burbank tomato is a Frankenfood.

99 percent of the tomatoes you buy today have been hybridized for MACHINE PRODUCTION.

Electrofusion and protoplast fusion are considered somatic hybridization, not genetic manipulation.

And you were worried about labeling GMOs?

If you think stopping Monsanto is going to put sand in the gears of the corporate factory-farming juggernaut, you’ve been scarfing too much monoatomic gold and/or toking too much ayahuasca.

Wake up and smell corporate agribusiness’s STANK.

If you snooze, you lose.


[1] Less than 5 percent of a tomato’s original genetic variation exists in today’s cultivars due to recombinant inbreeding and other pre-GMO germplasm manipulation.

[2] Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) advised cooking tomatoes to detoxify them and activate their vitamin C.

[3] Berries and roots were deemed “women’s work” because men didn’t relish getting stuck with the thorns, and they thought themselves too “manly” to get dirt under their fingernails while clawing roots out of the soil.

[4] Today’s tomato cultivars aren’t as poisonous when eaten raw.

    If funding doesn’t arrive for Atom’s School of Time Conscious Living soon, I’ll be moving its campus lock, stock, and barrel to the Land of the Lord of the Rings soon! :)

    If one reads Pirates and the Lost Templar Fleet, it becomes thoroughly clear that ‘Christopher Columbus’ was the basterd Jew son of the Spanish queen who assumed the identity of an Italian from Genua in order to conceil his (politically) checkered past.
    David Hatcher Childress makes a very compelling case against the idea that the mainstream myth could ever be more than just that.

      I read an alternate his-story claiming Columbus was friends with the Italian navigator Zuan Chabboto, who we in the U.S. refer to as John Cabot.

      No matter how you slice it, what we call history is mostly fiction. :)

    Hi Atom,

    When do you like to drink your almond water (in relation to eating the almonds, coffee, etc).

    Thank you, great post!


    • July 31, 2013 @ 2:25 pm atomb

      I drink my almond water, then eat my almonds, then follow with the rest of my breakfast.

      Today the rest of my breakfast was a pecan, a walnut, some cashews, some pine nuts, half an avocado, an apple, a slice of peach, two sun-dried olives, and a slice of umeboshi plum.

      Then I kicked back and drank my Cobalamin Tonic while listening to One Radio Network. :)

        ditto sans coordination :)

        Hi Atom – I thought drinking any liquid while eating will slow digestion and cause a fermentation type of reaction in the intestines. I realize this is from 2013, but today are you waiting 30 min before or after eating to drink the coffee tonic?


        • April 11, 2019 @ 3:22 pm Atom

          Soup often digests better than solid food for most people.

          I drink my coffee, cocoa, and maple syrup immediately after eating, but not during a meal.

          Cold liquids can slow digestion dramatically, as can a cold stomach before food even enters it.

    Hi Atom,

    Can you expatiate on “Singularity”, Ray Kurzweil, et al.?

    Thank you.


    • August 1, 2013 @ 2:56 pm atomb

      Swami Nitty-Gritty commented that the Universe as we know it is going to go on till Midnight Eternity, and I doubt that humanity will collectively ever experience the Singularity.

      But, in these days of connectivity, we certainly are brushing up against the Singularity.
