    feed the world “what”? cpf’s, glyphosate, pcb’s, paraquat—greed. the pu$her$, the chemical industry (ie: ‘corporate-farmers’) care-nothing for mother earth and her children, much-less are they concerned about hungry children—hollow man in a suit selling fear-of-hunger carnival-barking “it’s simple, we need pesticides to feed the world”. at best, willfull ignorance, worst—well, look at the hideous, grotesque transcript/record of the pu$hers
    of non-sustainable agriculture.

    Our soybean farmers are addicted to pesticides. The industry meme our farmers need to feed the world is pure propaganda. The world doesn’t need more people eating the diet that has made North Americans some of the sickest people on the planet. If we want to see the world fed, we need to help local people provide for themselves by raising their food locally with more fruits and vegetables and less low nutrient commodity crops like corn and soybeans. The idea that putting toxic pesticides on food is a good thing is about profits for pesticide companies, not feeding the world.

    So, our soybean growers want to continue to use chlorpyrifos? and the CEO of the American Soybean Association is supporting its continued use by referencing research paid for by Bayer Crop Science? after the EPA already banned it in response to farmworker advocates and labor and health groups?

    These lobby groups don’t really seem to be concerned with human health or the environment – and I don’t think they’re concerned with the health of the farmers they’re supposed to represent.
