Farmer Goes to Market Halloween Special
The creepy clowns of the supermarket are back
The five creepy clowns of the grocery aisle are back! 
Just when you thought it was safe to return to the food-retail aisles, Farmer Goes to Market's creepy clowns of the grocery store have returned. Beware the scare!

High-fructose corn syrup
Lurking behind innocent labels, hiding in every food you carry from hotdog buns to baby cereal, this mead of menace will punch holes in your intestines and rot your liver from the inside out. Or so the story goes.
Six in 10 American consumers don't know what they are, but 90 percent are sure it's out to get them. Where's the explanation for the epidemic of perplexing Monsantophobia?
Antibiotics_ Are they making us all sick_
Up to 80 percent of all our antibiotics are pumped into the veins of innocent factory farmed animals, creating a poisonous stew of superbugs that will return us to the dark ages of pestilence. Sort of.
Metamorphosing unsuspecting little girls into libidinous circus freaks and little boys into semisoft lumps of couch-flesh, the toxic stew of steroids that farmers secretly implant into farm animals are destroying our children. (Not.)  
A putrid green fog spreads across the food lands, and it's not the hot air coming from Michael Pollan. It's the millions of tons of bug- and weed-killer poured into rivers, lakes and foodies. What shoppers need to know about the fog of confusion.   

The scariest thing that this special Halloweeen issue of  Farmer Goes to Market's  should remind us of is that  we've strayed from scientific fact when it comes to food fear. We should base our laws, regulations and opinions on proven scientific facts and not emotions or loud voices of political activists. Loud does not mean correct. So come with us again as Farmer Goes to Market reminds us of the facts and fallacies regarding high fructose corn syrup, genetically modified organisms, the use of antibiotics, hormones in meat and the use of pesticides. The fast-and-loose interpretation of the risk is frightening in its lack of truth and transparency. We provide Farmer Goes to Market so our readers know the truth and can share information that is scientifically based.
We thank both the Nebraska Farm Bureau and the Nebraska Corn Board for helping bring the truth to your inbox. Happy Halloween.
