Down below video is one of best one we have ever watched on youtube, where just 11 year old explaining what's wrong with our food system.
August this year we had informed our US readers about Senate Bill S510 and H.R. 875 according to these two bills it will be illegal to grow, share, trade or sell homegrown food in US. Under US Senate Bill S510, Home land Security personals can raid our backyards and organic food stores on gunpoint in search of “raw-foods” [link]
