Local is the healthy option

 In Letters, Opinion

Editor:

Your recent Home and Garden edition has stimulated local conversation about the use of insecticides and pesticides on food production in the USA.

Those watching TV saw Donald Trump signing an Executive Order removing existing regulations covering the preventive use of chemicals on US farms. A leading chemical manufacturer was standing next to the president and took the used pen after signing.

Most of the time we do not always know exactly what we are consuming, Our bodies may be poison tolerant up to a certain threshold, but for safety’s sake my family now refuses to purchase “Produce of USA” from the supermarket.

The locally grown fresh vegetables at Saturday Morning Market are looking even healthier now.

Ray Jackson,

Mulmur.
