I agree with you Pete. I'm a little shocked with Weekly's stance. If only people would do some research. So much for "investigative journalism". I guess the weekly enjoys supporting the destruction of the Amazon forest from genetically modified soy.

Most of the veggies I buy are frozen. That counts as "processed" by the text of the law - READ IT.
Why are school lunches exempt if the reason for the law is to protect children? "Prosessed for immediate consumption" is exempt -please read the text.
Waiting a year or two to get it right is a better idea than rushing something flawed and no enforcement for yearsssss of lawsuits over the nits........

Don't miss out on the discussion!
