Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Unity College students work toward non-toxic food packaging
Kennebec Journal - 11/8/2010.
Toxic chemicals pervade food packaging, food containers and our bodies. Under Maine’s Kid-Safe Products Act, the state Board of Environmental Protection is considering a ban on bisphenol A (BPA) in baby bottles, sippy cups and packaging for infant formula and baby food.
Maine’s pine needles could fight flu, boost business
Bangor Daily News - 11/8/2010.
By Clarke Canfield – Portland: A little-known raw material used in the most widely used antiviral flu medicine comes from the fruit of trees native to China. It turns out it also comes from pine trees in Maine’s backyard. Researchers at the University of Maine say they’ve found a new and relatively easy way to extract shikimic acid – a key ingredient in the drug Tamiflu – from pine tree needles.
Another salmonella egg recall from a Decoster-related company
Grist - 11/8/2010.
By Tom Philpott – Remember Jack DeCoster, the tycoon behind the half-billion-egg recall in August? As I showed in a recent post, DeCoster stands at the nexus of a tangle of companies that, combined, produce more eggs than any single entity. Over the weekend, one of those companies, Ohio Fresh Egg, announced another "voluntary recall."
Time to End War Against the Earth
Common Dreams - 11/7/2010.
By Vandana Shiva – When we think of wars in our times, our minds turn to Iraq and Afghanistan. But the bigger war is the war against the planet. This war has its roots in an economy that fails to respect ecological and ethical limits - limits to inequality, limits to injustice, limits to greed and economic concentration.
