What has happened to the FDA? Does it no longer have the mission of protecting the consumer?

I have saved seeds from my garden forever and trade with people who have done the same. IMO, fruits and veggies that are "heirloom" quality have the best flavor but frequently are not shipped because they can't stand up to the process.

I grew a French melon last season that was beyond delicious, but so fragile, there is no way that would be grown and shipped all over the country. This is another reason I buy locally and support local farmers if I can't grow it myself.

A friend of mine has purchased seeds for her garden. I can't remember what they are called, something like heirloom seeds or something. They are supposed to be seeds that have never been cross germinated or altered from the original plants of our grand parents or great grand parents era.

Unfortunately science is not always in our best interest.

I always wanted my own library but I didn't realize it would be all knitting books!

Good article/op-ed piece. I thought the FDA was labeling or had plans to do so. Obviously, I was wrong.
