What the Hell Happened to Our Food Chain?


OMG…this just in…are you aware?

From the Organic Consumers Association today:

Fish no longer eat other fish. Cattle eat corn, even though it makes them sick. Chickens eat corn and fish. And fish eat byproducts from cows and poultry.

Even chicken feathers have become food.

California grows oranges, but sends them away because they’re too difficult to peel. The oranges Californians eat come from Australia.

The food chain doesn’t look like it used to.

Demand for more food, and cheaper food, has created a food chain that’s motivated by making the greatest amount of food, at the cheapest cost. It’s efficient, if you measure efficiency by corporate profits. But in terms of health and the environment? Grandma wouldn’t approve.
