We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, insecticide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won't go bad, but we also have new strains of E. coliā€”the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults.

I realize our motto is deny ignorance, but when it comes to food, I'd rather remain ignorant of a government quota for the number of allowable rat hairs in a hot dog....thanks....

What's the alternative? Buy super pricey "organic" foods that likely do the same things?, grow our own and be part time farmers? I'd personally love to supplement with some home-grown veggies, but don't have the time or conditions to really do so....
