Will America See a Food Revolution?

Hosted by

One-third of America's tomato crop is infused with pesticides, picked green and turned red artificially. The US State Department admits some is produced by slave labor. Factory-raised chickens grow too fast and get too big; they taste like rubber and threaten the future of traditional breeds. Evidence against the abuses of modern agriculture is creating a new movement of people who don't want to eat industrialized food any more. But better tasting, more nutritional food is expensive, and the movement may be limited to the favored few.
