Botany of Desire Video

This was on PBS last night. Just incredible, even if you've read the book, the video is a wonderful reminder and offers some additional information. It's amazing how much of our world's is shaped by McDonalds. Big companies are controlling our food and we are allowing them to do that because we think it betters our life, offers cheaper food but that's all it is, cheap and it's impact, our impact with that decision, on our environment and our future is real. It's time we make real decisions with more information. GMO potatoes were out in 1996 until 2001 and we didn't even know it! Gosh, it's amazing to me that fast food places like McDonalds even still exist but that's a rant for another day.
