Today, we get an influx of email and social media, especially as more individuals and families experience cancer. We hear from the masses, and they want solutions. Growth is good. However, it's a double-edged sword as demands expand in ways I never thought possible.

The demands are great, and as a nation we must all be engaged in the process for less cancer. We can make new inroads on this disease so that the next generation will be looking forward to days of no cancer as opposed to more cancer.

Consumers get it. They are no longer willing to accept the staggering health issues their children are facing as a result of harmful chemicals. We are seeing a new food system come into play and good alternatives to harmful cleaning agents and pesticides. But it is not enough.

In the fight to figure out how to reduce incidences of cancer, we must not lose sight of people's humanity and their contributions to the world. We must not let cancer steal our headlines.

My commitment to organics is to make sure I do my part to leave my children with a better, healthier planet. It's not just about today and this moment -- rather, it's about doing things with expanded thought and an interest in seeing a healthier future.

I honor Vermont's lawmakers and their bravery in raising the bar on human health and the environment. I look forward to when other states will accomplish the same.

Every time I return to Detroit I continue to see its magic -- yet at the same time, see the pain and loss that comes with poverty. That said, I also feel a sense of optimism by a growing trend of some exciting social enterprise occurring.
