Default Re: Monsanto et al write up a 'food saftey bill' in the USA

This bill looks to me to be lining up the USA to be Codex Alimentarius compliant.

I did try to read HR825- I don't speak legalese as I write real fantasy fiction! - and it seems to cover not only all food production and processing in USA but also what's imported into USA. I really hope I'm wrong but I can see USA food inspectors coming to my country and telling farmers here how to grow the barley for the whisky and how to raise the cattle for the Scotch beef and I see GM and even more growth hormones and antibiotics and pesticides.

I find myself in the somewhat odd position of hoping that Prince Charles, given his recognition of organic farming, has the clout to stop a similar law coming into force here.

love to all
