US Food regulation reaches new depths.
US Senate passes the Patriot Act for Food, S510, by a vote of 73 to 25
Seeking to control access to seed and determing what people can grow, transport and eat.
"If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny." Thomas Jefferson
