Or to put the question another way, “Do we really need industrial agriculture to feed the world?”
We are told that the answer is “Yes” by big agricultural companies making GMO seed and pesticides that we pour into the food system and into our bodies. Of course that is what they tell us, but do you understand the argument of why that isn’t true? The author and food activist Anna Lappé has created a myth-busting video to explain it. Anyone interested in food or the environment should see this. There is also a resource filled website called Food MythBusters. This just launched as part of Food Day this week!
