Healthy foods lead to healthy families. In a perfect world, we would all go to our nearest local grocer to buy foods that were not treated with hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides, any chemicals, or genetically modified foods. Foods would be healthy food!
This is not a perfect world at this time. We do have the FDA and the USDA, supposedly on our side, giving safety standards for food production. There is much room for improvement.
There are foods treated with various products that we would not like our pets to eat, but yet we might be purchasing them unknowingly and feeding them to our kids.
Now is the time, as a nation, that we must become educated. We must support the organic food movement that offers us foods grown without all of these additives. We want healthy families. Let’s get that message across to farmers, dairies, manufacturers, the FDA and USDA, and our politicians.
