New report and video on human and financial costs of current farm bill

The Union of Concerned Scientists put out this report and video  The $11 Trillion Reward on the human and financial toll that our warped system of agricultural subsidies takes on Americans. I haven’t read the full report yet, but I watched the video and you should too– it’s short and to the point. Don’t stop there– share the video with friends and family– you never know what might tip someone toward choosing a healthier lifestyle, or advocating for those who would like to make that choice but are stymied by the counterproductive, expensive, and frankly poisonous set-up we are suffering from now.

Apologies for the lull in postings! Moving is happening frighteningly soon and it’s taking up all of my time 😦 Hopefully I will be back to a regular schedule soon.
