Sustainable Farming

Agriculture policy and health care policy are intimately related. The fault lines that run between industrial farming and sustainable farming are the same fault lines that run between medical care and health care. Industrial farming feeds a lifestyle that stimulates and sustains a culture of sickness, which is the basis for medical care. Sustainable farming with an emphasis on vegetables and fruit promotes a diet that leads to better health and avoids the environmental impact of industrial farming with its negative influence on health status. If sustainable farming became agricultural policy, there would be a ripple effect that would change American society at the most basic level with improved health status. Think of what that would do to the current budget debate.
