This is also an issue where Obama can and should do something immediately.

It's in interesting topic but folks we cannot keep growing our population without making adjustments to our food to ensure it is available. Cows are injected with hormones to ensure bigger cows, bigger cows equals out to more meat, more meat equals lower prices. We are always concerned about over fishing and someone comes up with a genetically modified fish and people are horrifeid and opposed. Corn crops die as a result of insect and disease so our science community develops corn that is resistant to both...yes more money can be made however in it's purest form this does help the population and keep food costs down. I'm just saying that we cannot have it both ways...families pushing out as many children as they want yet relying on mother nature to provide for excess. I guess when you look at illegals in the country that also plays a small part in the consumption of goods but minimally. It's amazing that someone in another country has to walk for miles to get water and we can go down the road to our local hamburger chain and complain if it takes over five minutes in the drive thru to get a burger...we just don't know how good we have it.

Write your congressman or congresswoman or senator. I know they are all corrupt, but if they get a big outcry on this issue...if they get enough pissed-off people....maybe they will start to listen.
"The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was, is lost, for none now live who remember it."
Interesting you should ask that. I think the answer is that they eat what my family eats...organic food. It IS readily available where I live. In fact one of our major local groceries pushes their own house brand of organic ...everything. I can easily buy pasta, sauces, veggies, meat...with the exception of certain cuts of beef or pork that is guaranteed to be free added hormones or pesticides that would exclude the legal definition of organic. I can also almost completely avoid high fructose corn syrup. Now where do I live? I live where the elites live, in a suburb of DC. I'm also not that far from the county that the Washington Post revealed as "spy central" where children of workers in the various intelligence agencies receive some of the best public school education to be found anywhere.

This is a small aside from this discussion but I'm curious as to what these "elites," you say, eat? If don't eat GMO injected foods, what do they eat?
