Reason 2?? I should think that's reason # 22,000 at least. Every time I think things can't get any more idiotic with our mainstream food supply, I come across something like this.

The real killer about all this is that not only do these large companies benefit from misinformation or even outright fraud, but they manage to get the government's imprimatur on their practices, often even getting the law to declare their way as the standard, and criminalizing the time-proven methods of the past.

For a good perspective on all this, read Joel Salatin's "Everything I want to do is Illegal" (yeah, I know I keep plugging this--honest, I'm not working commission). Warning: it will inspire you but it will also get your blood boiling.

I'm counting consecutively as I come across reasons... I'm not gonna do the "Victoria's Secret Sexy Tip #458" thing and pretend I'm in the middle of a huge list. No, dang it, I'm gonna do the whole list, starting at one... and ending when I end.

I've been meaning to read "Everything I Want to Do Is Illegal," but haven't gotten to it. I've read two of his other books and they were excellent. The guy is driven.
