As organic foods are growing increasingly more popular around the world, only in America would such an atrocity take place. According to the Organic Consumers Association, there is a "sneaky" attack taking place by Bush and Congress who are trying to put new 2006 Agriculture Appropriations Bill into effect which would lower Organic Standards and put synthetic products in organic foods.
I'm completely appalled at what Bush and the big guys are trying to sneak out all to better corporations and the FDA. The corruption is just going too far. Go mess with your own farms and not with Organic growers around the world. The American voting population needs to be aware of these happenings and stop any further corruption. You can write a note to congress here about stopping this bill from taking effect.
Mr. P pointed this out to me this morning. Knowing that he will be blogging about it too is actually a good thing. You can check out his post here. I just hope if this bill actually does take effect that it won't have an effect on the rest of the world.
For those Canadians interested go to Canadian Organic Growers. For more information in Switzerland on organic products go to Bio Suisse
