It is so wonderful to hear that countries around the world are really starting to endorse, and emphasize the importance of organic agriculture. This makes me really with that the US would take more drastic actions in subsidizing organic agriculture, rather than junk food.

I actually cannot understand why if the production is so good and important, then why the people don?t consume them, I think that there should be more campaigns to make the people realize the importance of the organic production and how they can help if they buy these products instead of the common ones
