My Potato Project - Organic

(2:32) A child's experiment turns into a lesson on the toxins in our food supply. From Wikipedia: "Bud Nip is a plant growth regulator and herbicide used as a sprout suppressant for grass weeds, alfalfa, lima and snap beans, blueberries, cane berries, carrots, cranberries, ladino clover, garlic, seed grass, onions, spinach, sugar beets, tomatoes, safflower, soybeans, gladioli and woody nursery stock. It is also used to inhibit potato sprouting and for sucker control in tobacco."

Terrestrial Ecotoxicity:Honeybees=Sli ghtly Toxic. Note:Population-level effects on honeybees may occur even if a pesticide has low acute toxicity. For example, certain pesticides interfere with honeybee reproduction, ability to navigate, or temperature regulation, any of which can have an effect on long-term survival of honeybee colonies. Now we should all PANIC!!

Governments should tax 'bad' foods (ingredients and processes) and use that tax money to subsidise 'good' foods. It would then just be a matter of getting the tax level right so that the price of 'good' foods is as low as possible.

OK, let's see: we've got people wanting to tax soda to make it more expensive so people drink less of it. But it's cheap because we've already been taxed to subsidize corn and HFCS production that makes soda cheap. So, taxed once to make it cheap, a second time to make it expensive... and the more goofballs like you with "just pass the right taxes to fix everything" mentality and we'll get yet another tax to pay for the poor to afford the newly more expensive soda. Look, you have money just burning a hole in your pocket? Go pay triple in the organic food department and remove "tax" from your vocabulary and go somewhere and feel smug about your food. Geez

I'm all for 'simplifying taxes' and 'small-as-necessary government'. I guess you're for 'minimum taxes' and 'small-as-possible government'. I think taxes are important because it's how we pay for not-for-profit services in our society - services that range from the military to your local library. Since tax is the people's money, then what's wrong with using it to improve the health of the nation? What's wrong with using the people's money to subsidise healthier foods so more people can better afford to be healthy? But I do agree with you, the tax system is way too complicated. Being smarter about tax would also mean simplifying it overall.

What's wrong with using the people's money to subsidise healthier foods so more people can better afford to be healthy? The simple answer is because it's only fair that I pay for the food that I eat. Why should I subsidize wheat farmers when I'm allergic to wheat. Let the people that eat that stuff pay what it's worth. If not taxing me causes a loaf of bread to cost $10 then that's how much it costs. Let the people that eat the bread pay the price for wanting to eat that food product. Regarding this chemical causing cancer and killing animals that it's tested on, that was done by over exposing animals to the chemical. No rats were killed when they had 2% of their diet of this chemical and the small amount in these vegetables is nowhere near 2% of our diet.

I don't care if it's a child, an adult or a talking parrot; this is good information and needs to be heard.
