Subject: AS advocates for people with cancer

We are concerned about the chemical changes in food.  Beef used to contain high levels of CLA which is a cancer-fighting chemical.  But not anymore - constrained animals fed non grass diets, do not produce CLA.  That's bad.
We are concerned about genetically modified foods in our food system.  This is unlabled, we cannot choose to eat it or ignore it.
We are concerned about fruits and vegetables that are picked before they are ripe.  Their phytochemicals are not as they should be.  This is harmful to our bodies.  As local farms disappear this will only get worse.
As people who advocate for those with cancer, these are just a few of our concerns about our food supply system.
Thank you.
