I think our food system is in need of overhaul.It needs to be smaller, locally based and human scale.Agriculture shouldn稚 tear up the environment.Workers shouldn稚 have to compete against third world wages.Corporations shouldn稚 have more power than the government.The quest for corporate profit has made our food system unsustainable耀upply lines are global.Energy (especially petrol based) squandering practices should be abandoned.The government should protect the people from food borne illness.It should have the resources and personnel to conduct good scientific studies on additives, insecticides, etc.Corporations should not be stronger than government, the people should not be at the mercy of mindless greed-heads.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /??>
