My name is Marjorie Eler and I am a practicing physician in the Chicago area. I am deeply concerned about the consolidation of corporate power in the food and agricultural sector for several reasons--First, local farmers are going out of business; there is no way that they can compete with "big" farming, and secondly, it's getting harder and harder to find locallly produced food and support the local comminities.
I appreciate your consideration in this matter; it needs to be looked into further--
Dr. Marjorie Eler
