Day 3: The Future
The future.... what does it hold for us and Mother Earth? These past few months I have been watching health and food documentaries and they are so eye-opening, depressing, education and also light a fire deep inside me. I wish everyone would feel the way I feel. Hubby doesn't like so much to watch them, but the bits and pieces he does here I think does impact him. Just last weekend I put on the movie "Dirt The Movie!" That was a good one. After that, we went to play in the mud, lol. Check out the list of Documentaries below and watch one, two or all of them to celebrate Earth Day and let me know which one is your favorite!
- Hungry for Change
- No Impact Man: The Documentary
- Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead
- Genetic Roulette
- Food Inc.
EVERY 2nd Saturday of the Month McAllen Public Library, The City of McAllen, Major Health Food Store, The Historic Cine El Rey Theatre Foundation & The Fooducator™ along with many other supporters who make possible the Fooducation™ Movie Series as an effort to help improve the health and wellness of our community.
Come learn how food affects your health & our world!

So, with that I leave you with this question...... WHAT ABOUT THE FUTURE?!
Just recently Obama signed what was referred to some critics as "the Monsanto Protection Act" to protect biotechnology, http://www.salon.com/2013/03/27/how_the_monsanto_protection_act_snuck_into_law/
Family and organic farmers via Food Democracy Now and Organic Consumers Association are now in court with Monsanto to protect our food system. Information on that is here, http://www.fooddemocracynow.org/farmers-vs-monsanto/.
