organic foods

Has anyone studied how the government and the big food industry hijacked the organic movement. Joel Salatin has quite a lot to say on the subject. WFN should use that as an example so this great thing that has started with buying local food is not perverted in a similar way. Lets put legislators in place that allow the people to once again rule this great country.
