    Thats not the point.
    Name one product from there that is known to have no levels of something wrong with it.
    And why are we buying our veges from overseas when they should be grown here?

    Buy local.

    Actually, a lot of USA produce has had levels of something wrong with it lately also!

    And what is local? At this time of the year there is ZERO fresh local produce here. Mexico is closer to me then Florida, so what exactly is local?

    Ok - How many people are going to connect that - and NOT BUY that? [​IMG]

  8. Think in order to stick to the Buy Local thing we're going to have to relearn how to live within the seasons... eat summer crops in summer, fall crops in fall, winter crops in winter, spring crops in spring... and if we want to extend that then can up the stuff during the season it's grown in.

    But a lot of folks like strawberries in winter... and they don't have the time, space and/or inclination to freeze/can foods.

    So long as those things hold then purchasing from other climates is going to continue.

    News flash: They use human feces as fertilizer in the U.S., too. The thick goopy stuff from the sewage plant is called "sludge." Once it's treated they rename it biosolids.
