Sorry, just getting my rioting chant ready.

Frankly, I think Americans, Europeans, and Japanese could do more good for poor and starving people in other parts of the world by eliminating or severely reducing agricultural subsidies and trade protectionism, but that borders on political, so I'll just leave it at that.

just wanted to mention that it is possible to raise and eat meat that was not fed grain. Hunting yields wild venison, turkeys, etc. that used very little or no grain to raise. I raise a portion of the meat we eat and feed no grain to the animals.. Granted they are milk fed and the milkers are fed grain, the actual meat animal receives no appreciable grain...just a touch to expediate hoof trimming.

i don't eat a lot of red meat. but then chickens are fed grain, aren't they.

don't know about fish, does anyone know what they are fed in fish farms.

wish i knew a real immediate action that would reduce the price of food. it is harder and harder to eat a balanced diet, with even vegs sky-high in price..

if i had the space , would grow a lot of vegs.

I gotta agree with those who believe that is this is a political problem, not a food problem. Seems to me that the problem is too many people, not too little food. I do not pay too much attention to a guy flying around in a G 5, flying in food from around the world for a celebration dinner, and telling me that I must cut back.

Jim, please explain this comment. I'm not sure what you're trying to say.
