So my brother looked at my blog the other day and here's his response to a previous post about the "Skinny Bitch" book. He has a very valid point so I thought I'd share.
"Amber read the book skinny bitch too, and she liked it, but she read me some of the stuff and I HATE that book. The authors are not certified to talk about some of the stuff they talk about, especially the organic stuff. Obviously I work for a chemical company, but to say those things and that organic is the only healthy way, is a total FARSE!!!! It it weren't for EPA approved pesticides, there would be NO WAY we could produce as a country or globally the amount of food we currently do. And in the US for domestic consumption and for what we export globally, and for what is produced globally, we still can't produce enough food to feed the world. So if everyone produced organic food without fertilizers, pesticides, corn, soybeans, etc with traits and bioenginered crops..... we would be in a world of hurt. Plus they are all government regulated and safe to apply and use. If we couldn't spray fields with herbicides for weeds and insecticides for bugs, they would totally take over the crop and instead of getting 240 bushels per acre for corn, a person would get probably 20 bushels per acre. Sorry for the tangent, but I'm pretty passionate about that, and those women who wrote that book have no credentials to write those things in that section..... and some others."
