it was amazing

Linda Faillace takes us on a journey from England, where she and her husband studied scrapie in sheep. When the family This story is an important example of how badly things can go when large regulatory institutions go rogue. I highly recommend reading it if you are involved in food security issues and are concerned with food safety. One thing I would especially like to point out is that the Faillace family did their best to work with the USDA until they realized that the science the USDA was using to back their actions was bogus. Even when their animals were slaughtered, their argument was not for NO regulation, but for localized regulation which is transparent, based on good science, and assists farmers through open communication and understanding.
