AgriPulse - 5/22/2013.
By Jim Webster - The drive to require labeling of food with biotech ingredients "is not going to go away," former Deputy Secretary of Agriculture Kathleen Merrigan said today.

A growing collection of evidence suggests dietary exposure to phthalates (which can leech from packaging and mix with food) may cause significant metabolic and hormonal abnormalities, especially during early development. New research published this Wednesday in The Journal of Pediatrics suggests that certain types of phthalates could pose another risk to children: compromised heart health.
