Today has been declared World Food Day! This is the perfect time to take a hard look at your food, where it's coming from, and how your purchasing choices affect the world around you. Many of us are well into this process, but it's important never to stop questioning, probing, and learning. Our food environment changes daily, and there is nothing on the planet that isn't touched in some way by the food industry. There is nothing more fundamental or crucial than food, and it deserves our full attention.
The Organic Consumers Association has taken today as an opportunity to create Millions Against Monsanto - the company which (often together with Dow Chemical) has pioneered so many of the modern food industry's atrocities. GMOs are a hotbed of debate, and Monsato is at its white hot core. Learn more! Get educated! And remember, one of the best ways to affect change is to simply reduce demand.
