I love to grow my own food. And I am a mostly vegan. So this article really made me smile.
Lots of great information and worrisome details about what is happening to our food supply.
"Food writer Mark Bittman has argued that because food is defined as “a substance that provides nutrition and promotes growth” and poison is a substance “that promotes illness,” then “much of what is produced by industrial agriculture is, quite literally, not food but poison.” While that may be an extreme statement, our food system is arguably at risk for several reasons, including the increasing use of herbicides and pesticides; the rise of genetically modified organisms (GMOs); and climate change."
The author makes a great case for growing organically and keeping our microbiomes healthy.
