By now you are probably familiar with the food scandals that have been running rampant in China. In the aftermath of any such situation, new movements are born.

The Middle Way: One Farmer's Fight for Organic Food in China

By now you are probably familiar with the food scandals that have been running rampant in China. In the aftermath of any such situation, new movements are born. Ms Yang is part of an effort to bring healthy and organic food to Kunming, a city in the Yunnan Province of China. But for her it goes beyond healthy. After graduating from University and working in business, she found a way to go back to the farm and fight for healthy and organic food. This inspiring story shares a hopeful future for food in China.

Good luck to her I say. What with the levels of pollution in every facet of PRC environment; government control and the level of corruption in government; she faces a daunting task.

I think we all would agree with Michael that the pollution in our water, air and soils is beyond the toxic level, but we don't have to add to that with GMO adding more toxins to brew. Good luck to the woman in China and to all of us - we need it. Buy carefully, learn the farmers in your area buy local.

Good story! Inspiring. If a young woman in China can open an organic and healthy restaurant then why cant someone here?
