Have you seen this MSNBC interview with Tom Colicchio and Melissa Harris-Perry? About three and a half minutes into this interview, he speaks about how the chemicals being used to eradicate weeds are also destroying the ecosystem in the fields. No crickets, no worms for healthy soil, which leads to a soil that can’t retain water and is washed off. In other words, the nutrients which build healthy food is missing. A healthy soil has active worms in it. It’s like Las Vegas, build it up and they will come. This is one of my main motivations for using organic practices at home and wanting the farming industry to use them as well. Without healthy soil, how can we know our food is safe? Watch the interview for yourself. A longer version is available at the end of the story.
