The Future of Food

______Fresh is the absolutely first-rate documentary from filmmaker Ana Sofia Joanes. It resonates even more loudly following the latest headlines that upwards of 68 (mostly young) people are dead today as a result of swine flu, while New Yorkers and New Zealanders shudder on the brink of what may be one of the scariest pandemics seen in a long while, eclipsing the death toll of the avian flu that sent the media and frequent flyers into a tailspin not too long ago.

Asking all the right questions, Joanes’s doc shows us the facts of industrial farming and encourages us to find out not only who is growing the stuff but – even if it looks good and tastes good – what chemical residue it has. Fresh shows us:
– a chicken litter that requires health warnings for its causticity;
– 110,000 chickens are cooped in a single space in the summer, 418,000 in the winter;
– that rice, soy and cotton require immense amounts of fertilizer and pesticide to keep them healthy because nature doesn’t like mono-cultures (“When you grow too much of the one thing you get too many of the pests of that thing.”); and
– that these animal cities/factory farms are harvesting the bacteria that kill people because of, amongst other things, their sanitation problems. After dosing livestock and poultry with massive amounts of antibiotics to ensure they do not get sick in their close, mono-cultured quarters, the lagoons of waste being excreted – instead of following the natural fertility cycle in which the “waste” helps nurture the grass to grow and create feed for the animals – are, instead, dumped in unusable, toxic manure lagoons filled with hormones, pesticides and pharmaceuticals.

So, as we reduce risk to ensure production – by using pesticides, insecticides, antibiotics, et cetera – we increase all risks both to the environment and to the consumer’s own health. Read More

We cannot feed ourselves.  At no location in this country can we feed the population that resides there.  We are net importers of food from China. We are net importers of products from China and China finances, at last look, 900 billion dollars of our debt.
We are part of a Global economy that views efficiency and lowest price as important yet somehow, cannot foresee the extrapolation of a future with very cheap products with no one to buy them.

What do we do?
We look to our history, our identity, our heritage.

Grow Local! Buy Local! Eat Local!

Group urges reliance on local foods Plan would move Ozarks away from imported supply.

Ruell Chappell does not have all the answers, but he and his supporters are taking on a task that they believe must be done — no matter how arduous — because the stakes are too high.
