My blog does not serve the purpose of bringing politics to the forefront or stating my own opinion on every news story relative to food. This, however, is one that I did not want to exclude. I like my readers to be informed, but to not spoon feed you information, though highlighting material for you to gain personal insight. If you have yet to hear of the Monsanto Protection Act, I will provide links so that you may be educated on the subject matter.
