Subject: Please insist on fair play

Workshop Particpants:
I am a middle class parent and have spent many years studying nutrition, farming practices and the food industry.  I am horrified at the poor quality of the average American diet and believe it is largely a result of the agricultural and food processing monopolies that thrive in the U.S.    Please act to end these monopolies ( both vertical and horizontal), so  that  healthy food is affordable, and innovation, based on the common good and not purely profit, is guaranteed.
Let me commend the White House garden project and the promotion of farmer's markets.
