Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Legislature to address genetically modified foods
Waterville Morning Sentinel - 4/18/2013.
The vast majority of Maine people want to know if the food they eat contains genetically modified organisms.A recent Maine poll conducted by PanAtlanticSMS Group in Portland found that 91.1 percent of Maine people want food that contains genetically modified organisms to be labeled as such. This number seems unbelievably high until it is compared with 11 national polls that confirm at least 75 percent of Americans agree.
Support labeling of genetically modified foods in Maine
Bangor Daily News - 4/18/2013.
By Dr. Michael Noonan - A bill before the Legislature would require labeling of genetically modified foods in Maine. I encourage readers of this column to contact your local state representative and senator and ask them to support this bill, L.D. 718, An Act to Protect Maine Food Consumers’ Right to Know About Genetically Engineered Food and Seed Stock.
Food-borne illness linked to poultry, seafood on the rise
Los Angeles Times - 4/18/2013.
By Melissa Healy - An increasing proportion of Americans made ill by food-borne pathogens in 2012 suffered from the effects of bacteria often found in uncooked poultry and in seafood from warm coastal waters, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Tuesday.
How Monsanto Went From Selling Aspirin to Controlling Our Food Supply
Alternet - 4/18/2013.
By Jill Richardson - Forty percent of the crops grown in the United States contain their genes. They produce the world's top selling herbicide. Several of their factories are now toxic Superfund sites. They spend millions lobbying the government each year. It’s time we take a closer look at who's controlling our food, poisoning our land, and influencing all three branches of government.
