Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
New study on milk quality runs away from its own findings
Organic Consumers - 5/13/2010.
A Monsanto-funded study by scientists at Cornell University measured the concentrations of heart-healthy fatty acids in 292 samples of conventional rbST, and organic whole milk. The study was needed, according to the authors, to clear up "confusion" among consumers over nutritional differences between conventional, rbST, and organic milk. The team found significant differences in the two key fatty acids that are higher in organic milk – conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and omega 3 fatty acids. CLA levels were 23% higher in the organic milk compared to conventional and rbST milk, and omega 3 levels were 63% higher.
The end of the bluefin tuna
Zester Daily - 5/13/2010.
By Jake Tilson – When any species achieves culinary-icon status, it's days seem to be numbered. To compound the problem, sushi – and tuna with it – became a global craze. Although Japan imports 80% of every bluefin caught, the rest of the world consumes what's left. Industrial commercial fishing has decimated bluefin tuna stocks in the Atlantic, Mediterranean and the Pacific. Bluefin have declined to about 15 percent of historic levels and have been placed on the Red List of Threatened Species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, or IUCN.
U.S. Clears test of gene-altered trees in South
The New York Times - 5/12/2010.
By Andrew Pollack – Federal regulators gave clearance Wednesday for a large and controversial field test of genetically engineered trees planned for seven states stretching from Florida to Texas.
Cultivated blueberries land on the ‘Dirty Dozen’ list
Portland Press Herald - 5/12/2010.
By Avery Yale Kamila – This year's Dirty Dozen list is a good tool for shoppers looking to avoid pesticides in their fruits and vegetables, but bad news for blueberries. For the first time, the guide compiled by the Environmental Working Group includes the much-touted superfood on the list. The fruit clocks in at No. 5, ahead of nectarines and after apples.
