anything if it is not organic, whereas I have other friends that will eat whatever they want. For me, I have never been a real fan of organic items as they seem to be pricier but I have usually bought my produce from a local farm market. Why is it that in some poor countries, the food supply that is produced is also consumed in the same community? Being that these countries are poor, I believe that it is cheaper for them to grow and eat what they produce instead of trying to move the produce around and trade or sell. In these poor countries, there is usually a small market for agricultural commodities. Throughout my life time, I have been fortunate enough to travel to some very rich and very poor countries and it is really surprising to see how they buy food or even grow their own. When I went to the United Kingdom, there are so many choices to choose from in the produce section. I can get organic or nonorganic produce; I can also get different kinds of meats without a problem. However, when I visited India, it 3
was a totally different scenario. In India, I decided to stay in the poorer side of the country to try and understand their way of living without having the benefits and luxury of what I have here in the United States. When it came to making food, the families would go to their little gardens and get vegetables. If they were serving any kind of meats, they would kill the cow or pig that they had running around in the back. It was an unbelievable experience in the United Kingdom and India, as both had a very different experience to offer. 4
