Protein propaganda: It’s what’s for dinner

I've always loved a medium-rare steak but I don't really don't like being lied to about it by the government and the meat industry.

Why Is a Monsanto Lobbyist Serving as the FDA’s Food Safety Czar?

It is a travesty that Michael Taylor, a former high-profile lobbyist for Monsanto, is the second highest-ranking official in the FDA. He's been actively persecuting small farmers and food co-ops with armed raids while pushing through new GMO crops and protecting the food industry rather than public health. The story includes a link to sign a petition calling for Taylor's dismissal. I'd love to see that happen in a second Obama Administration.
