    Default As Americans Reject Monsanto, Organic is Booming Like Crazy

    Farmers can't even keep up with demand

    For every farmer who sold out to Monsanto’s agenda, they’ll likely be kicking themselves in the plants soon enough. What will it take for America’s farmers to realize that Americans don’t want to eat genetically modified food when they don’t even want to purchase it as feed for their livestock? Sorry Monsanto, but demand for organic food is absolutely booming.

    We’re importing organic corn from Romania, and organic soy from India. (Soybeans are the second-biggest US organic import, with $184 million shipped last year from various countries.) Much of our organic produce comes from Mexico.

    I hear more and more people discussing organic food and its benefits. Growing numbers of Americans are being diagnosed with diabetes, celiac and chron's disease, etc. Patients--and their doctors--are slowly gaining a better understanding of the adverse influence conventionally-grown foods have on many of these diseases. What's the old adage: "people who know better, do better."

    I think possibly another contributing factor may be the current conversations around food. They may be making doctors more aware of nutrition, a subject that is barely addressed in med school. There was a time when doctors scoffed at the notion that you are what you eat.

    Yes, I actually heard a doc say this on the radio some years ago - it makes no difference what you eat. Yet, if you have had training in medicine, aren't you taught that cells die and are replaced all the time? What are those new cells made of? Seems obvious they must be made of whatever fuel you put into your body. Forgive me, I'm being logical again!
