Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Pancreatic cancer linked to herbicides
Science News - 6/3/2009.
By Janet Raloff – A new study links two weed killers with pancreatic cancer in pesticide applicators and their spouses. The authors, most of whom work for the National Cancer Institute, note that they are the first to link this particular malignancy with the farm chemicals — pendimethalin and EPTC — and really don’t know how either would trigger cancer (although they do have a theory).
Industrial farming is giving us less nutritious food
Mother Earth News - 6/1/2009.
By Cheryl Long – We now have solid, scientific evidence of this troubling trend. For example: In wheat and barley, protein concentrations declined by 30 to 50 percent between the years 1938 and 1990. Likewise, a study of 45 corn varieties developed from 1920 to 2001, grown side by side, found that the concentrations of protein, oil and three amino acids have all declined in the newer varieties. Six minerals have declined by 22 to 39 percent in 14 widely grown wheat varieties developed over the past 100 years.
Battle over beets
Corvallis Gazette-Times - 6/1/2009.
By Bennett Hall – Organic seed producer Frank Morton has been warning people for years that genetically modified organisms pose a serious threat to the Willamette Valley’s vegetable seed industry. Now he thinks his worst GMO nightmare may be coming true. Roundup Ready sugarbeets – a patented variety engineered by Monsanto to tolerate the company’s widely used Roundup herbicide – have turned up in a soil mixture being sold to gardeners at a Corvallis landscaping supply business just a few miles from Morton’s fields.
