Something has to be done

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

The huge companies have infiltrated all areas of govt which also go right down to personal health. Be more like Europe and say no to these GMOs. etc.
This was in my inbox today and just wanted to share... If I am not to share this please just let me know and I will delete it. There is nothing offensive just sad, very sad that so many peole can't fight a huge company but in Europe they don't stand for it.

Something has to be done... and me I want to be able to afford grass fed meat, fresh eggs and the likes.

    I agree that eating as 'cleanly' and healthily as possible is sadly not a priority for most Americans. However, as a geneticist, the topic of GMOs is always a sticky one for me. I know how genes are transferred between species and why, and I know the pros and cons. Certain things cause problems, and certain things are totally harmless. It's a tough topic with no one answer that will make everyone happy.
    But in America in general, people are not willing to fight for anything. I believe it is mostly apathy combined with government support for the wrong programs, laziness and a complete self-centered-ness. Unless things directly affect your life in a negative way, you aren't going to get off your hiney and go out of your way to do something about it. Plus people are cheap more so than morally motivated, so it's easier and cheaper to just shop at walmart or whatever rather than support small business, local farmers, or organic producers.

    YES. Thanks for sharing the article. I'm working on a project in the next few years so that I can raise that grass-fed beef for people. It's so hard to do it and price it at a level that more people can afford. The gov't subsidizes most of the corporate ag outfits, including big feedlot growers, since the grain is subsidized, along with other things. So when small producers don't get any help at all, they have to charge more to cover the actual costs of production. I urge people to write their representatives about the Farm Bill, since that's where a lot of policy is made. We need more support for small, sustainable farms.
