Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Helping overcome the price barrier of organic foods
Portland Press Herald - 7/7/2010.
By Avery Yale Kamila – We hear it all the time: Eating organic local food is too expensive. For many people who feel this way, it's really a statement about priorities. Some of us just value things like smart phones, vacations, concert tickets or flat-screen TVs more than wholesome meals.
WIC’s potato ban is bad nutrition advice
Portland Press Herald - 7/7/2010.
Editorial – Pity the potato: Its undeserved reputation for making people fat has dropped it from the list of foods that people can take home with the federal government's help through the Women, Infants and Children nutrition program.
Strawberry season winds down
Bangor Daily News - 7/7/2010.
By Sandy Oliver – When I was growing up, it seems we did two things with fresh strawberries. One was shortcake made with a biscuit-type round, split and, if you please, buttered.
Antibiotic idiocy
Bangor Daily News - 7/7/2010.
Editorial – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says it is getting serious about the threat routine use of antibiotics in livestock poses to human health. The seriousness includes asking farmers and the food industry to stop the practice voluntarily. Since it has been asking this for more than two decades, this hardly counts as a serious response to a real problem.
