Some of the most esteemed global institutions have documented that the best way to fight hunger--and grow food abundantly--is to go for organic and ecological production methods and get people eating whole, real food again.

Terry, you are right--like on so many things, follow the money trail and you find the answer why. Thanks Nancy for this article to better see the dynamics explaining some of the illogical aspects of the history on this issue.

Yes, thank you Nancy for this article. It is up to us, the consumer, to get the word out, since BigAg has big bucks to throw at advertising.
How I'd love to see more and more people return to small family farms!
Shared on fb.
Would like to see many more articles like this in the future.

TY Nancy. This is an excellent article. This info. needs to get into newspapers, magazines and on tv.

I watched a special report yesterday on the BBC saying the terrible hot weather of this summer has damaged this year's harvest and they expect the same next year. There is now an advisory issued about famine in many regions of the world. Farming methods need to be updated and revised to accommodate for the change in temperatures. We have to change.

The solution may be a grass roots movement by us, the people, to start buying locally-grown meats and produce at farmers' markets or through co-ops. The more support these small businesses get, the more food they can provide and the less will come from big agribusiness. Simple math, people! And the food tastes so much better. I know from personal experience. And, if you buy at a farmer's market, you can usually have a great little conversation with the actual farmer about their products. Like, is it grown organically? Do they use antibiotics on their livestock? Do their animals get free range pasture? Do they rotate crops to preserve the fertility of the soil? You sure can't do that with any of the big name brands. Try it. You'll like it!
