Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
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.
GMO Labeling: Simple Transparency, or Undue Burden for Maine Farmers?
Maine Public Broadcasting - 4/23/2013.
By Jay Field - Genetically-engineered food in Maine would need to be labeled as such, under a bill being considered by Maine lawmakers. If it were to pass, the measure could only take effect after similar legislation has passed in a handful of other states. Opponents, including major food and agriculture industry groups, told lawmakers at a public hearing that the bill isn't supported by science and would raise costs for businesses and consumers. Supporters argued that consumers have a right to know whether the food they're consuming comes from genetically-modified organisms - or GMOs.
Penobscot Bay as region struggles with identity, narrowing economic base
The Working Waterfront - 4/23/2013.
By Tom Groening - Penobscot Bay is a distinctive estuary, easily recognized even in a photo taken from space. According to a recent study, it is "the largest, most ecologically diverse, island-filled bay in the Gulf of Maine." Yet the people who live in the two-dozen towns that rim the bay do not see themselves as part of a single region, nor is there any unifying government or leadership group. And that lack of cohesion and identity will hinder efforts to combat some sobering demographic trends.
