Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Elderberry trumps tamiflu for flu remedy
Organic Consumers - 6/5/2009.
By Paul Fassa, Natural News – Concerned about using Tamiflu if the second, much worse swine flu breakout comes as promoted and promised? You should be. Besides the insufficient supply that is getting closer to its expiration date, Tamiflu is only partially effective. Furthermore, it's very expensive, and the side effects are so harsh and dangerous that it has been banned in Japan.
Bisphenol A Protest
WCSH6.com - 6/4/2009.
Maine citizens gather in Monument Square, Portland, to demand the removal of bisphenol A and other harmful chemicals from children's products.
Attention grows in garden plot
Portland Press Herald - 6/3/2009.
By Kelley Bouchard – Most days, it's a struggle for Hector Velasquez to make it to school. A sophomore in Portland High School's alternative education program, he's not much interested in sitting at a desk for hours at a time listening to a teacher go on about one subject or another. A new garden-based curriculum is giving Velasquez and his classmates a fresh reason to come to school, get their hands dirty and help provide food for needy people in the community.

By David Derbyshire – They look more like the brightly lit shelves of a chemists shop than the rows of a vegetable garden. But according to their creators, these perfect looking vegetables could be the future of food. In a perfectly controlled and totally sterile environment - uncontaminated by dirt, insects or fresh air - Japanese scientists are developing a new way of growing vegetables.
