So true

"Things were different fifty odd years ago, when the general public had a good knowledge of cooking...
It always amazes me how these days people can be totally up-to-speed and knowledgeable about so many different things--computers, music, fashion--but they don't give a toss about what they put in their mouths every day. If it's meat, they don't care where the animal has come from, how it's been reared or what it's been fed on. If you walk round your average supermarket, even though big efforts have been made, there are still lots of products riddled with additives, hydrogenated fats, and a whole catalogue of fillers--fake food."

Jamie Oliver seems to be a very switched on guy. I saw him on a t.v. show a few months ago, where he visited an intensive farming chicken farm in England, and was so horrified by what he saw that he immediately went public and told everyone watching the show they should buy free range eggs and chickens! (Better still, Jamie, you should have encouraged every household to keep a hen or two so they can have VERY fresh eggs)
