Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Legislation Would Require Clear Labeling of GE Food
Environmental Working Group - 4/24/2013.
Washington, D.C. - Environmental Working Group applauds Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) for introducing the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act, bipartisan legislation that would require food manufacturers to clearly label genetically engineered (GE) foods.
Nanomaterials in fertilizer products could threaten soil health, agriculture
Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy - 4/24/2013.
By Andrew Ranallo - IATP’s report, Nanomaterials in Soil: Our Future Food Chain?, draws attention to the delicate soil food chain, including microbes and microfauna, that enable plant growth and produce new soil. Laboratory experiments have indicated that sub-molecular nanoparticles could damage beneficial soil microbes and the digestive systems of earthworms, essential engineers in maintaining soil health.
A comparative evaluation of the regulation of GM crops or products containing dsRNA and suggested improvements to risk assessments
Environment International - 4/24/2013.
By Jack A. Heinemann et al. - Most commercialized genetically engineered crops have been engineered to make a new protein. A newer technique changes the RNA of organisms in order to regulate gene expression. This article addresses biosafety questions about those crops and how they should be evaluated for risk.
Earth Balance Betrays Consumers With False Non-GMO and Organic Claims
Prevent Disease - 4/23/2013.
By Natasha Longo - Earth Balance is a company that claims to "take the health of our planet just as seriously as we take the wellness of our customers." They also assert this position with a Non-GMO commitment believing in "environmental protection and agricultural methods that work in harmony with nature." When we investigated Earth Balance, we found these statements to be purely superficial marketing tactics.
