I am writing because I am concerned about the lack of competition in agricultural markets.
Many local farmers my uncle has talked to say they cannot compete any more against big businesses and it seems like the quality of our food is dropping.
Corn for example is genetically modified and this stuff has not been indepedently tested enough although some studies have found adverse effects on the enivornment and human health of vital organs.
The United States was founded ona strong healthy middle class and farmers have a lot to do with that. But the food industry is out of control and GMO's threatent the health of the entire planet!!!
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to comment.
