Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Bisphenol A found in baby food in glass jars
Treehugger - 7/11/2009.
By Lloyd Alter – OK, So you have given up on canned baby food and switched to glass to avoid the endocrine disruptor Bisphenol A (BPA), right? Well, maybe not. Health Canada (which last year banned BPA in baby bottles) tested baby food bottled in glass and found BPA in 84% of the samples. Martin Mittelstaedt of the Globe and Mail notes that while glass doesn’t contain BPA, a plastic making compound, it is often used on the liners of metal jar lids.
U.S. Beef Safety Plan Languishes Amid New Illnesses
The Wall Street Journal - 7/10/2009.
By Bill Tomson – A June beef recall by JBS Swift & Co. for deadly E.coli contamination could have been prevented if a plan devised during the Bush administration to build new barriers between the bacteria and the public had been enacted.
Nonprofits, state buying fishing rights for fishermen
Portland Press Herald - 7/8/2009.
By John Richardson – Conservation groups and state officials are launching a new strategy to save coastal Maine's fishing communities. Three nonprofit groups announced Tuesday that they have created the state's first "permit banks" by purchasing fishing rights and sharing them with local fishermen. In these cases, the fishing rights – days at sea – are being given out to Down East or midcoast fishermen who help study and rebuild fish populations.
Super duper?
Portland Press Herald - 7/8/2009.
By Meredith Goad – Remember when pomegranates seemed really exotic? Now, thanks to their purported health benefits, they are in everything from iced coffee to martinis. And there are scores of other fruits – some familiar, some unpronounceable – joining pomegranate on the shelves. Acai is everywhere, as are goji berries [see photo], noni, mangosteen, blueberries, cranberries and other so-called "super fruits" that contain compounds called antioxidants that may help fight against heart disease, cancer, arthritis and other diseases.
