The recent outbreaks of food born illnesses like listeria and salmonella only serve to reinforce that we are all eating from a poisoned food system. This episode of Imagine2050’s audio blog traces our current industrialized system of food production back to the 70’s when the Nixon administration changed the Farm Bills to subsidize commodity crops like corn. We’ll listen to excerpts of interviews with the Nixon Administration’s Secretary of Agriculture, Earl Butz, and food activist and author Michael Pollan, among others.
