I am writing because I am concerned about the lack of competition in agricultural markets. I am also HIGHLY distressed
after watching the documentary, FOOD Inc. which if you haven't watched, you should. If you have refused to watch in the past, you should be made to sit and watch it. The horrible treatment of the animals in these factory farms is deplorable. And we wonder why our fellow Americans have cancer, diabetes, food poisonings, and the list goes on. Monsanto, and others like them ARE KILLING US, Yes I said it. And I will say it again and again. It behooves me that the American people have in effect, elected officials that confirm by appointment, all these top level officials to the FDA, USDA, and other government agricultural agencies from companies like Smithfield, Monsanto, and others. THE CORPORATIONS ARE RUNNING OUR GOVERNMENT! WE THE PEOPLE SHOULD BE DOING THAT! I certainly hope that your ears are open to hear this and I believe that the laws should be overturned letting corporations get away with murdering us slowly over time with their chemicals and genetic modifications. Bring back funding to the local farmers. They are saving our lives and the lives of generations to come.
If we must continue manufacturing genetically modified foods, it is imperative that those foods be labeled as such.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to comment.
