The conference features speakers on herbalism, biodynamics, traditional

Beans, Genes & Genistein
Chemophobia, I call it, synthetic fears
Tamoxiphen's with us some twenty years
Only three years for raloxifene
But our genes long know the genistein!
Maybe some three million years,
Back when Homo (the genus) appears;
Primates grazin the Rift Valley green;
Long they’ve known the genistein!
If my love had breast cancer genes,
I’d rather she took a bowl of beans;
Something that her genes have seen;
They’ve never seen raloxifene!
Angio and Endostatin. miracle cures?
Will kure kancer, Kolata assures
Stop angiogenesis, stopping the cancer,
But genistein's a cheaper answer
Mom and dad were really kinda funny
Corn bread, cabbage, greens and beans
They didn't leave me a whole lot of money
But a gracious plenty of well worn genes.
