Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
In the FDA’s actions on trans fats, are there lessons for GMO labeling?
Grist - 11/30/2013.
By Michael Lipsky - On Nov. 8, the Food and Drug Administration announced that dietary trans fats would no longer be “generally regarded as safe,” a decisive step that will lead to banning trans fats from foods altogether. Excluding trans fats from the food supply will result in an estimated 20,000 fewer heart attacks and 7,000 fewer deaths each year.
What are you smoking? Study finds pesticides transfer to marijuana smoke
Times-Standard (Eureka, Ca.) - 11/30/2013.
By Thadeus Greenson - When you take a hit of marijuana, you might be inhaling a lot more than pot.

The Cornucopia Institute - 11/29/2013.
By Pamela Coleman - The food in grocery stores today is unlike the food eaten by our ancestors, even a few hundred years ago. Part of the difference is easy access to highly processed foods that contain refined sugar and chemical preservatives. A more significant difference is the high percentage of genetically engineered (GE) crops that are the source for our food.

Environmental News Network - 11/29/2013.
By Patrick Holden, The Ecologist - Unsustainable farming systems that damage the environment and public health thrive at the expense of sustainable producers. Patrick Holden makes the case for "true cost accounting."
