As you probably saw on OPRAH, I love my organic garden, and each day I anticipate my walk down the hill to pick the freshest, most scrumptious vegetables of the day.
I seek out restaurants that offer at least one organic entrée. I support my local farmers’ market and frequent those stalls that sell organic, and I also encourage the supermarkets to sell organics.
I often wonder when we decided it was a good idea to spray poison on our food; and today, with the cancer rate at epidemic proportions, there is definitely a link from chemicals and poisons to cancer.
So to find out that there is a bill being introduced to our House and Senate in two weeks banning organics from being grown and sold, including backyard organics so that we would not even be able to grow our own for our families, boggles the mind. I can only assume that with the growing popularity of organics, the manufacturers of foods with poisons are lobbying like crazy in Washington, DC.
Please write or call your state representatives or senators to protest this craziness (download the action alert document below for instructions). This is America… we should be able to EAT what we want. Don’t you think?
