I am a mother of three young boys and am deeply concerned about what our government is allowing the food corporations to get away with.  How could the government give these corporations so much power to do whatever they want? 
 I don't want my family to eat foods that are genetically modified.  I don't want my family to eat irradiated produce or meats.  I don't want my family to eat bacteria infested meats.  I don't want my family to eat meat that is pumped up with steroids, antibiotics or covered in manure, and yet these corporations are selling that to us.  Other countries have banned GMOs and test all meat being sold to the public, why can't the US?  Is that the kind of food these corporations serve at their family's dinner table?
