It is sad that manufactures are adding fillers, coloring and diluting things ILLEGALLY, to lower their cost but unfortunately they are not passing that on to you but making you believe that you are getting what is listed.

actually the FRAUD starts even earlier; e.g. with calling that new $hit of the chemical+poison-agriculture, which did not exist ~before WW2, "conventional" to make "organic" farming (and just about all farming up to WW2 was "organic" !) look like something exceptional

There is a simple remedy for this. Demand complete, honest, full disclosure Food Labels. Demand the FDA write a comprehensive report on exactly what may be called Organic and Free Range.

Write and call your Senators, Hlouse Representatives and the FDA, send a short letter to your local newspaper. Be demanding, we do have a right to know what is in our food. *(Write to Governors and state legislators as well, they seldom hear from people.) Make it short letter hit the points you are demanding.
Thanks Carrie ~

Sadly noted. I just come back from shopping, and I am disgusted how all the packages are getting smaller and smaller, and we have to pay more and more.

I try to always read the ingredient labels- sometimes I forget, and then I am sorry I bought it (once I do read the label!)

I agree with Birgit W. There was a time when "a can" of green peas or pinto beans, etc. yielded 16 ounces--four 4-ounce servings. Now the cans yield 15 ounces or less. The producers tell you the truth, but what can you do with that? Nutrition labels use a 4 ounce base, and when you're a vegan or vegetarian on a budget you're looking for all the protein grams you can get. Who are you supposed to short?

Eating is getting to be a really scary thing...when organic isn't organic, but the price doesn't reflect that; the food itself has been tampered with, but the consumer doesn't have to be warned their life may be on the line. It seems it's not just the meat eaters that have to be careful, but the vegetarians and vegans as well.

Good information that we all need to be aware of! I'm glad that I stay away from all of these foods. The only one that I have is Florida organic orange juice. But after reading this, I think I will start squeezing my own oranges.

I think it comes back to having a small amount of trusted vendors - and buying only from them and making your own - it can be a pain in the neck - but at least we won't get poisoned that way!

Be self-sufficient so you know what you eat, there's a lot of land to cultivate

Love
