I believe in healthy food choices for all.  We are now in a food emergency. A  very important step we can take now is standing up for for America's last remaining family farmers who are growing organic  as well as GMO free foods.  

The film Farmageddon tells the story of the unseen war on America's small family farmers that now needs to become visible.  It is important that the President and First Lady see this film and show it at the White House so that a fair Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Food can be held on the issues involved.  

It is important that the President regain our trust, and showing this film will bring the issues involved up for public understanding.

 I want to encourage the President to invite his Food Czar Michael R. Taylor and our respected Secretary of Agriculture, spokesperson for the Know Your Farmer. Know Your Food.Initiative, and the Organic People's Garden Project  at the USDA to participate in this open Dialogue that invites top scientists of all grains of thought to put the facts on the table and let the people decide.

I call for this open Q & A  on the issue of our Food Emergency

      Consumers have a right to know all ingredients and the sources in the products in the market. End corporate secrecy and exploitative profiteering. Increase and enforce testing and regulation of GMOs. Support organic and localized farming.

      The farmer we have bought fresh milk from for 6 healthy years is doing something right. We should be building on what he is doing right and improving it, but instead he has been investigated for a year and raided twice for transporting raw milk across state lines. He is selling only to informed consumers who have signed a form annually acknowledging that we are receiving raw, unpasteurized milk. Although there has not been a problem in 6 years, if there ever were, any one of the purchasers or the farmer could e-mail the entire group instantly. Far simpler than the hugely expensive and largely ineffective recalls for mass produced food.

      To support small farmers in their quest to grow crops and raise animals without federal regulations implemented only to destroy their livelihood in the name of food safety.

      We should have the right to choose what foods to eat and not be told what is safe.

      You'd think that the First Lady would be interested in this film, as she has an organic garden. But, I wonder how much that garden is about symbolism and public relations, versus being substantive policy on the part of the White House?
