Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
The food safety shell game
Common Dreams - 8/31/2010.
By Mark Kastel and Will Fantle – What isn't being discussed in Congress, during the ongoing debate on the broken federal food safety system, is the root cause of the most serious pathogenic outbreaks in our food – the elephant (poop) in the room. The relatively new phenomena of nationwide pathogenic outbreaks, be they from salmonella or E. coli variants, are intimately tied to the fecal contamination of our food supply and the intermingling of millions of unhealthy animals.
Study: home pesticides linked to childhood cancer
Organic Consumers - 8/31/2010.
By Dan Shapley – As if links to Parkinson's disease, diabetes and obesity, cancer, low sperm counts and other reproductive health problems, and childhood developmental problems and diseases were not enough ... or that pesticide residue is common on foods, or that that children are even more susceptible than previously thought, or that pesticides stick around in the home for decades after being used, or that the EPA is slow to remove known toxic pesticides from the market, and doesn't require chemical makers to even list toxic "inert" ingredients ... now there's another reason to avoid using pesticides around the home.
FDA reveals conditions on egg farm
Grist - 8/31/2010.
By Tom Philpott – There's nothing like a good salmonella outbreak to inspire FDA inspectors to deliver blunt, graphic reports from inside the industrial food system. When future historians marvel at the fetid, festering underbelly of our food culture, they will relish these past-facto dispatches from the biohazardous front.
In search of good eggs
Zester Daily - 8/31/2010.
By Terra Brockman – I'm living dangerously. I just make a sunshine cake whose main ingredient is (gasp!) eggs. I even licked the bowl. And the spatula. And the beaters, too. But I have not a shred of fear, because the eggs came from my brother Henry's farm.
