http://www.democracynow.org – Wenonah Hauter, the executive director of Food & Water Watch, joins us to discuss her new book, “Foodopoly: The Battle Over the Future of Food and Farming in America.” Hauter tackles the corporations behind the meat, vegetables, grains and milk consumed by millions every day — including some of the most popular organic brands. “Foodopoly” details how a handful of large corporations control the nation’s food production in ways that limit how small-farms operate and how ordinary people make choices in grocery stores. And in the wake of the recently passed provision dubbed by critics as “the Monsanto Protection Act,” Hauter also discusses the new report by Food & Water Watch, “Monsanto: A Corporate Profile.”

Watch our discussion about the “Monsanto Protection Act” with Wenonah Hauter and Gregory Jaffe, director of the Biotechnology Project at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, a non-profit consumer advocacy organization that addresses food and nutrition issues at http://www.democracynow.org/2013/4/2/…
