However, the alliance leadership’s motivation and commitment to counter this disparagement is also strong. We might be a small organization with limited funding, but our message is truthful, accurate and grounded in science.

Marilyn Dolan is executive director of the Alliance for Food and Farming.

Why do people like Dr. Oz continue their assault on the safety of the food supply system? Do they really want people to eat less fruits and vegetables? If you can find their motivation, you will find the cure. Could it be the minority of the food system that practices careless safety policies and wind up contaminating the system? It's never fair to judge the majority on the minority, but that's what seems to be happening. Oh...he's also looking for ratings!

Completely agree! If we are all fighting the good fight against obesity and other diet-related health concerns and trying to educate and influence people to eat more produce, why all the negativity. Headlines sell, and scare tactics work. If only the ratings weren't as important as America's health.
