US has huge appetite for organic food - industry
On 1 May 2007 Reuters reported: So many more Americans are buying organic food these days that United States farmers are having difficulty supplying the demand. The organic farmers want monetary help from the US government for crop research and market development to expand the industry and to meet consumers' desires. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of environment, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

Representatives from the Organic Trade Association (OTA) told a US Senate Agriculture Committee on 24 April that due to organic farmers not being able to meet consumer demand imports are rising.

The Organic Farming Research Foundation (OFRF) made a similar statement at a House of Representatives Agriculture subcommittee hearing the previous week.

Organic can only take us so far. If we use GM-anything, we screw the organics concept. What good does it do to grow something organically when that something is a genetically-modified strain that could kill us without having ever been subjected to petro-chemicals, etc.?
