  • In addition to the issue of access to healthy local food, there is the issue of the economic future of this area. We need to work together toward making it possible for people to earn a living through growing food for us locally. More small, diversified family farms in Carroll County is a good picture of future possibilities.

  • It is important to talk about these issues. More important still to change our eating and buying habits. Thanks for being a leader in both respects, Dan.

    People need to to hear it over and over that industrial corn products have been linked to obesity and diabetes. Then they need to read ingredient labels. It's almost everywhere. Get ahead of the curve and start avoiding these products and asking for more labelling. Don't wait for the government to act. It took 30 years for the government to finally say trans fats were bad for us, and they have almost disappeared from the food supply now. Genetically modified corn syrup is next, but it could be years before it will be politically feasible to say so. Go to http://www.blaizemalone.com/gmo.html to read more about genetically modified corn from a political and health perspective.
