But the last thing i want is some lawmaker (or worse, his/her lobbyist) making decisions on what my family is allowed to eat...Who says i can't reward my kid with a Happy Meal once in a while, and the fact that he gets a cheap-o made in china toy along with the deal has to be worth something as well!
I didn't mean WHAT we are allowed to eat per say, as much as what's IN what we eat. My husband's company is in food safety and deals with a lot of international exports of grain/peanuts/seed.

Most other countries don't feed their cattle the grain with levels of mold/mycotoxins that is considered not only acceptable but safe here in the US for human consumption. It is wide known that the primo crops get exported. The crops with higher levels of toxins remain here where they go on to become cereal, crackers, and whanot. Most European countries won't touch the "hot" crops with a 10 foot pole. We in the US add high fructose corn syrup / dye, turn it into Fruit Loops, and feed it to our children.

you can start by reading court proceedings like this:
Manheim v. Prime Tanning Corp. et al. case information
then you can look into groups like these:
Proposed Constitutional Amendments to U.S. Constitution-Reclaim Democracy.org
finally you can put two and two together and find a legal team that has an idealistic constitutional viewpoint that might help you take it to your courts. thats hard enough to accomplish on its own.
sorry i cant do all of missouri's legal homework for you, im trying to find support in my own state to do the same. it should be alot easier for us all but it isnt.
