Suddenly, it seems, everyone’s talking about what’s wrong with processed and genetically engineered (GE) food. The New York Times published an in-depth exposé last week revealing decades of science experiments conducted by junk food companies that have spent millions to make us all, including and especially our kids, junk food addicts. Yesterday, a report called “The Organic Movement” appeared. It will soon run as a 12-page feature in the Washington Post. And of course, every major newspaper in the country is following the story of the farmer in Indiana who’s fighting Monsanto over its patents on GE seeds – largely because the hard-fought battle over Prop 37, California’s Right to Know about GMOs initiative, pushed the issue of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) into the realm of public consciousness.
