This kid had great delivery -- I'm guessing maybe his dad "helped" him write the speech -- but more power to him; everything he said is true and
needs to be heard. The next generation is eating this food and will have to deal with the consequences of untested or unsafe things in the food
supply, that are there because SOMEONE can be bought out for a few million dollars, rather than lose a few billion in profit for the food industry.
The BEST takeaway phrase to me; "You can either pay the farmer or the doctor." True. But for families on a budget, a cheap meal or paying 50% more
for the "idea" of organic food is not an option. First, they don't appreciate the difference, and secondly -- it costs more.
The idea that people who didn't choose the right financial savings plan, the right "propaganda" on food, the right job because we don't pay a lot
for people doing the RIGHT thing -- it's abhorrent. SOME of us, are smart enough or lucky enough to be aware -- but it's disgusting that kids have
to win the lottery on parents to get a fair chance in life. EVERYONE should have healthy food, everyone should get the best education and health care
available and THEN we can let someone who "earns more" get motivated with more money for a second home.
The truth is; even ORGANIC vegetables don't have to live up to the standards on the labels. And the soil in the ground the crops grow in, has less
nutrients than the same soil your grandparents got food from -- that's because of decades of fertilizer without trace minerals. And if some big
Agrafarm, with depleted soil suddenly put ORGANIC on the label -- what do we really know about that food other than the label and the price?
If GMO corn with estrogen-like molecules can give cancer to a rat, and isn't what YOU would choose -- it shouldn't be fed to ANYONE.
