I just posted this to my blog at www.ddfdb.blogspot.com and I thought you all mght be interested.  As it will affect small gardeners  and farmers market types..

BHO and the FDA wants to regulate our food..hmmm Isnt it due to their deregulation and incompetence that got us into this. And yet BHO wants to put his faith and our safety into them. Kinda like putting a drug cartel in charge of marijuana regulation...

I prefer knowing what I eat by gathering it myself and growing it myself.. Its not up to the Monsanto governed FDA and it cronies.. And for Trash it never will be. I for one would rather follow Farmer D and set up the stead for greater production in a method that I oversee and control..
While I have several producing beds already and air toward sustainability I do know that there is more that I can do..
And I will.

I traveled to Scandinavia several times last month for work.  As typical, I checked packages for signs of transfats and comments about organic or non-gmo stuff.  It surprised me to not see any transfats, no advertisements about "0 grams transfats" or organic/non-gmo labeling.  Then, I realized that they just don't have the stuff in their food - I couldn't come up with any other reasoning.

That is really interesting Stein, that never crossed my mind... of course I have also never been out of this country either.
