The Future of Food

This little video is quite eye opening and frankly, scary. It really is a shame how much red tape and politics have taken over our food supply. Whatever happened to farmers planing seeds and selling the fruits of their labors?
I guess those good old days are gone.
This video is about an hour and a half, but well worth the time.
Here is the link to watch online if you can't get the video to play.

So now the question is, what are we going to do about this?
*Visit local farmer's markets this summer and support your local farmer.
* Know the legislation about food and be involved.
*Write letters to your congressmen about hot food topics.
*Get invloved and make your voice heard.
It's our future.
Some of my favorite lines were (these are paraphrases, not exact quotes):
"Let's watch the American children for the next 10 years before we buy into this Genetically Engineered food." -China
"Our Children are NOT lab rats!"
"This is a Nation by the people and for the people. We have the rights and means to take it back!"
