Call me old-fashion, but, I am not one who likes to be "told" how to care for my family.
I am a big advocate for families researching their options and making the decision they feel is best. I don't always agree with others decisions, but at least the decision is theirs to make.
This holds especially true for me when it comes to the wonderful world of food and nutrition.
This article was of particular interest to me, and I felt it might be interesting to you as well.
FDA conducts armed sting on Amish farmer for selling milk.
A group of more than 1000 DC and Maryland consumers are irate at the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) attempt to shut down their food supply by conducting a sting operation of their private buying club.
Members of the private group contract with an Amish farmer in Pennsylvania to obtain fresh milk and other products from his farm. The FDA planted a spy in the group in October of 2009 to gather evidence against the farmer, for alleged illegal interstate commerce of raw milk.Claiming that transportation of raw milk across state lines constitutes illegal interstate commerce, the FDA conducted many sting operations and raids against US farmers, providing consumers with fresh milk or fresh milk products.
Government and other control of our food system is a very real thing. We often take the flow of food to our grocery store and homes for granted. We feel we have a "right" to choose the foods we feed to our family. But the fact of the matter is this is just not true.
