Food for thought

This thought-provoking article about the state of the food system, Slow Food Nation, is definitely worth a read. In it, "...experts discuss the politics of food, and how it may be poisoning our bodies and our planet."
By now it is generally conceded that the food we eat could actually be making us sick, but we still haven't acknowledged the full consequences -- environmental, political, cultural, social and ethical -- of our national diet.
If you are concerned with your health, the health of your family (especially with regard to school cafeteria food), the environment or animal rights, I urge you to take some time to read and seriously consider this article. It's an eye-opener.
