I know that farming and agriculture is a tradition in some families. How would the ancestors of modern farmers feel about the growers spraying their crops with pounds of pesticides and herbicides just to yield more product and therefore profit?

When my children were little, I had to watch them suffer through chicken pox. It was very difficult. When I was a child, my parents almost lost me to a severe case of the measles. I share this because advancements in medicine have reduced health issues tremendously. If vaccinated, kids don’t need to experience these diseases anymore. The same goes for biotechnology and the remarkable advancements it has introduced to farming through the generations. Using pesticides and herbicides has always been about growing the best and healthiest crops possible. Science leads the way.
