HOW CAN THIS BE, that we grow and produce two time’s the amount of food we need, but there is people suffering from malnutrition and hunger. On the other side we have billion’s of people suffer from obesity. HOW CAN THIS BE, we want more and more from the land and it has given all it has to give without a rest. In Indian over 150,000 farmers have been pushed to suicide, because too much has been asked of them and they have no more to give so they take their own life’s. Are we going to wait to see how long are farmers can hold on with out help or a rest? (NOT MUCH LONGER) So now were down to the last of are hard-working farmers, are we waiting to get to the last farmer before we do anything to help save them. They are the ones who made the USA a great nation, now are we going to tune in the TV and sit to see the last US farmer die. HOW CAN THIS BE??? If you see what I see get up and do something, let us show are young one’s HOW IT CAN BE AND SHOULD BE. And what do I know, I am just an old farmer anyway. BUT I THINK I KNOW HOW IT SHOULD BE.
Who Owns Organic? It would seem a lot of growers lay clams to it, some have trade marked it, others have used it on GMOs, some say it is just the name of their brand and has not a thing to do with what is in it, so what makes this such a powerful tool to sell with, is it the word, is it that we think it makes it better, is it that we think it makes us feel better, is it that we think the word makes it a fact, I think we need to always look at who owns the word organic, and how they are using it, for good or bad, you will see that it is not all for good, so lets not let them run with a word doing bad things just because it sounds good,
let’s make sure it is good, and by the way you own the word, anything that lived or that is alive that contained carbon is organic, so if you just read this you are organic!
The term organic foods refers to ‘organically grown foods’, meaning plants grown without the use of (synthetic) pesticides, fungicides, or inorganic fertilizers, and prepared without the use of preservatives. Foodstuffs must be grown on land that has not been treated with chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides for at least three years. Organic meat is from animals fed on organically grown crops without the use of growth promoters, with only a limited number of medicines to treat disease, and commonly maintained under traditional, non-intensive, conditions. In the EU, foods that are labelled as organic must carry the name of the organization certifying their organic status.
