    Excellent Interview… AND it’s not just the big insurance / drug corporations….. I just saw the movie “Food Inc.” The Corporate food product business is more dangerous than we think… and it’s contributing to our ill health… The only thing that can restore our food system to health and sustainability is people. Vote with your dollars: know your farmer, save seed, garden with or without permission. Practive civil disobedience. Stop eating high fructose corn syrup and soy products, and talk out loud about the immorality of Big Food Corporate practice.

    Hopefully this won’t be voted off topic… Yes we need single payer health care AND we also on an individual basis need to eat for our own health and wellness.
