Very important info in these films...and I ain't just sayin' that because of who posted them. :)

Our food supply is becoming increasingly more dangerous, at risk and concentrated in just a few hands.

Food sovereignty, security and justice has become, to me, the single most important issue/difficulty we as a country and as a world face. If this one isn't addressed, I don't think any of the others will end up mattering...

Josh, with your interest in food culture, are you aware that many traditional seed varieties around the world are in danger because Western businesses have effectively been muscling them out? Seed varieties which adapted over, perhaps, centuries, to the areas they were being grown in?

Kris and Tim you know I'm teasing.

Tim what seeds and where? I'm hardly worried about Asian varieties as they are quite abundant and protected as they have been for thousands of years.

Josh,

Africa and India, mostly, from my understanding. Well, and here, as well.

Here's a half hour film about this issue - focused mostly on Africa...

I'll check it out later. My interest is in the sustainability of indigenous food culture so I guess it's part and parcel.
