Yes. I'll post more later but essentially the monkey is always on the organic farmer to prove his stuff doesn't have it....amazing how the big guys control the gov't and the policies....it's a $$$$ thing and they play the game well.

What reeks is the research is done by companies that will benefit financially....what is also stinky is that there is a revolving door in the FDA and chem companies.....
It gets worse, the more I found out the more incredulous and angry I became....not only does it affect family small farmers but it affects our food supply....
Again small farmers are ecking out a living and don't have time and $$ to do the PR that the big companies are doing....lobbiests cost bucks.
***On the positive front I heard from the Mo dept of Ag today that several corn farmers are going organic, a buyer wants 25,000 acres of organic corn...apparently the meat issues are a weird blessing in big disguise, I don't understand why there isn't more prevention than after the fact bandaging.
