If you're thinking how can I one lowly person possibly make a difference when it comes to our food industry, think again.
Every time you choose NOT to support the use of GMO's by buying organic; and every time you choose to "buck the (factory farmed) system" by supporting your local organic sustainable farmer, you are no doubt making a difference.
Every time you choose food raised in a humane sustainable manner, you are making a statement LOUD AND CLEAR that says you will not be a part of a failing food industry that poisons its people, animals, and the environment alike.
Every time you question what's in your food instead of blindly looking the other way, you are setting a precedence. You are saying I want the right to know what's in my food and I won't let a company's profit and greed overshadow what really matters when it comes to the food we eat.
So the next time you're thinking what's the use, remember this... a consumer's power to choose may just be the biggest weapon we have! You don't need legislation to mandate, and you can't rely on others to look out for your health and well-being. It's your responsibility to educate yourself on what it means to live a healthy lifestyle.
It's your right to be a part of the solution, supporting those (people, farms, and companies alike) who are making a positive difference, just as it's your right to refuse to be a part of the problem!
