Some interesting articles

An article out of Canada about the phase out of 80 chemicals and 300 products that experts say pose a potential health risk----and Home Depot is doing it voluntarily. Wow! I wish all companies would do that.

Did you know that they start chickens on antibiotics before they even leave the egg? I didn't. See that one here.

And a food shortage article. Which brings home the point that we should all be putting in at least a few tomato plants in our yard this year----and maybe some beans and potatoes too by the way things are looking right now.

And a few things President Bush has to say about the Farm Bill and food prices. Maybe once, just once, he may get something worthwhile done. But maybe I am expecting miracles.

YUCK on the antibiotics. Glad they've been caught and stopped. Wish they would be fined appropriately - like, say, triple the difference between the price they charged for their "antibiotic free" chickens and regular chickens, to be donated to an organic organization.

Fined!!!
Now I know your dreaming Hayden! Their a big corporation---much more important than the individuals they may injure or lie to!
(between us though---I completely agree!!)
