The good news is that the current administration thinks that the FDA should in fact be doing their job. It's very refreshing.

Organic food, especially home grown food is healthier anyway.

Ever heard of Victory Gardens or Slow Food?

Why you should only eat organic: Here's what's in YOUR blood that you didn't ask for, nor give permission for. Got prostate cancer in your future? Alzheimers?

I live in a small town in North Carolina and teach for a lifelong learning program. We work with food innovators and I must agree that folks here are definitely looking closer to home for home-made, home grown products and the farmers and home-based bakers are responding with wonderful foods and produce. The farmer's market is now growing with organics and unique products of every kind. Being a babyboomer I am truly enjoying's like stepping back in time, the pepper jellies, bamboo pickles and Danish is good.

Amen. I have been attempting to get folks back to the basics for more than 20 years and they are slowly listening, but not like I'd like...well, it's okay cause life can show you better than I can tell you. I work with home grown food innovators all the time and the movement is on! Finally!!!
