Monsanto and Big Food love to claim that their system—the industrial chemical food and farming system—is the only way to feed the world. Because it’s “more efficient” and produces “affordable (cheap) food.”
What Big Ag doesn’t tell you is that its “affordable” (and unhealthy) food comes at great cost. And that it leaves us all, and will surely leave our children and grandchildren, with a big fat bill to pay—for our poor health, our degraded soil and our polluted air and water.
Somebody will have to pay those bills, explains John Ikerd, professor emeritus of agricultural economics at the University of Missouri, in an interview for “Feeding Fairfield,” a documentary by HHW Media.
