  •  I quite agree... (4+ / 0-)

    since the USDA has made Monsanto et al responsible for testing their products and passing on their safety. Talk about outsourcing!

    Expecting anything good to come of national efforts to change this picture is rather hopeless. Here in my county, we are taking matters into our own hands.

    We are lucky to have a multitude of organic farmers who have worked hard over 40 years to provide local quality foods. Even with that concerted organized effort, our county still imports 98% of our food. That is a major public health danger since, in the event of an emergency where truck traffic is disrupted perhaps for weeks/months, the grocery selves will be empty in a few days.

    I will be writing about our local effort.
