More and more consumers are demanding good foods – local, grown organically, high in nutrition, humanely raised, grown to restore soil and protect water. At the same time, there are legislatives moves to keep consumers in the dark about everything that’s in our food. For example, just this past Thursday (Dec. 3), the Federal Drug Administration approved GMO salmon for human consumption. And as of right now, this new salmon will not be identified in any way. Unless you own a pocket DNA tester, you’ll have no way of knowing if that frozen salmon fillet is something you want, or don’t want, to serve to the children at your table.
Tracy, co-host Dave Corbett and I will take a look at conditions in Minnesota and nationwide.
