I've heard plenty of horror stories about food production and I try not to think about it, but, there is the issue of there being far too many health problems with Americans, and I believe the majority of it can be traced to our food supply.

Is this the "show a man how to fish instead of giving him fish" theory? If so, then the other countries can developed their own system of farming food and create a whole way of doing business that will benefit everyone. Well...as long as war doesn't interfer that is.

I was thinking along the lines of people in those countries could also profit from "giving to charity" or fleecing donations the same way that Americans and Westerners do.

Children mean nothing in the US. Corporations are the real people. Money is more important than children in the US. That is why the rulers allow untested GMO food into the mainstream. Lunch should be prepared on site but every decision is based on the needs of corporate money. That means forget about edible, healthy food.

You are right about that.

At least fix your kids a healthy breakfast before leaving for school, and it would be better to make them a health lunch to take as well, [although they are probably going to eat that slop at school for lunch anyway]. (I think some schools still have soft drink machines and allow fast food restaurants to serve at high schools).
