You’ve got to love the President of The Environmental Working Group, Ken Cook, for being such a wise and staunch advocate for our personal health, safety and wellness. Here’s a great video of him in action at TedxManhattan, speaking about revamping the Farm Bill.

In the video, Ken talks about dead farmers getting paid subsidies (I kid you not!) and points out that less than 1% of the 4.7 million acres of farmland in this country is organic.
