Something is definitely wrong with regulation of the food industry.

For more on corporate corruption and the stranglehold on farmers and the food industry, see the documentary film, “Food, Inc.”. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. The film is enlightening, and important. More information here:

For information about chemicals in many products, including foods, see the Environmental Working Group’s website:

Researchers at the Environmental Working Group are dedicated to exposing threats to your health and the environment, and to finding solutions.

Another resource is The Center for Food Safety:

Very sad. It's not a large enough study, but it definitely shows that there's work to be done when it comes to pesticides in kids' food!
