The Mystery Of Food

Brits in the dark over food production | Food | Guardian Unlimited Environment:

"Farmers produce 60% of all the food consumed in this country, yet many adults questioned didn't associated everyday foods with British farms.According to the survey, 35% did not know that porridge comes from a British farm.

The origins of bread were a mystery to 23% of people, and 22% did not believe that sausages and bacon came from British farms."

This is just depressing beyond belief. That our understanding of the link between food, farming and plant and animal life has broken down so badly is very worrying.
