For Life

Welcome back to WordMaster, and welcome to our "Earth Day 2004" special. Thursday is Earth Day, and once again we're taking this opportunity to think about the planet and the environment on which we all depend.

What we eat has always had a great impact on the environment, so both this week and next we're going to talk about food - specifically, how nature and industry work together to bring us the food we find on the supermarket shelves.

Enjoy - and use!
