Food Issues

The Applied Research Center has just released a study called The Color of Food. It's no surprise to most people that people of color are at the bottom of the food industry job structure. It's also no surprise that they make less than a white male while doing the same job. How big the divide actually is will surprise people.

The Organic Consumer's Association is gearing up for Millions Against Monsanto campaign. Monsanto is the company that created most of the world's Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO). They say that GMOs are safe but critics say that it's too early to tell. Keep in mind that this is the same company that created DDT and Agent Orange. Monsanto said those were safe too. In the US foods containing GMOs do not have to be labeled. If GMOs were causing problems we'd never know because we don't know we've eaten GMO food.
