Why should we be Interested in

.Because the day we stop feeding

Yei", It is very easily possible. For
example, we here in America use 90
pounds of sugar apiece per year; In
France, they use 21 pounds apiece.
We can save many times the export
needs in sugar before" we reach the
French standard. Remember there'
