Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Walmart Squeezes Organics
The Progressive - 5/30/2014.
By Wenonah Hauter - One of the most frequent questions I get about the food system is what to make of the fact that Walmart sells organic food.
Perspective on Dietary Risk Assessment of Pesticide Residues in Organic Food
Sustainability - 5/30/2014.
By Charles M. Benbrook and Brian P. Baker - Based on USDA data on pesticide residues, Benbrook and Baker find that fraud appears to be rare. Most prohibited residues found in organic produce are detected at levels far below the residues typically found in food grown with pesticides. Relatively high-risk residues are more common in imported foods – both organic and conventional – compared to domestically grown food. The authors conclude that incorporating relative dietary risk into the organic standard would be a more precautionary, risk-based approach than targeting enforcement to organic foods found to contain 5% or more of the applicable Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) tolerance.
