  • Your recipe for banana bread looks and sounds delicious. I live in England, so S.510 does not affect me directly and I cannot campaign against it, but it sounds very alarming and I do hope that it will not come into effect. If the US were to adopt something like that it could give credibility to those not in favour of real food here. Good luck with the campaign, and Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Thank you for the reminder to oppose S510. It comes up for a vote this evening, and it must be stopped. The FDA favors pesticides, artificial chemicals, and even GMOs. S510 will give the FDA the power to force all farmers to use these methods, which would meant the end of real food.

    The banana bread looks great!

    Thanks Stan. And I agree, the FDA has shown no intention of protecting anyone but Big Ag and big business. More power would mean more of the same, unfortunately.

    Thanks April, keep your fingers crossed!
