Ive often wondered about this. I propose we dig up coal, a form of carbon free of carbon 14, burn it, exhaust the result into a carefully controlled greenhouse, in which we grow food which is free of carbon 14. If one eats only food from this greenhouse, one should be able to reduce substantially the amount of carbon 14 in ones system. Right? spike
