Thanks for sharing. I believe all that was said in the video but am surprised that it didn't mention that commercially produced food tastes terrible compared to home grown food. It's all I can do to eat somewhere that has bought groceries from a grocery store. There are also starting to be a lot of alternatives to buying food simply from the local food mart such as farmers markets, local farms, grow your own, etc.

I was in my teens before I ever tasted commercially canned food - yuck. Having grown up on a farm,I saw how much of a struggle it was to compete with large agribusinesses. The pressure on farmers then and now to make enough to stay on the farm, farm sustainably and not get hammered by the corporate "farm" is tremendous. This "Myth Buster" should be shown (for free) on the major networks in prime time - that won't ever happen - but it should.

It's sad to know that Monsanto owns the rights to all corn seeds so there are no heirloom seeds out there owned by your grandparents. Even if you found some and planted them you would be sued by Monsanto as they are not pest resistant; not even a small patch could be planted.
