Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
RIP Foghorn Leghorn, Killed By Industrial Ag
La Vida Locavore - 4/27/2009.
by JayinPortland. Our screwed up food system is not only killing us, it's also killing cartoon characters. The breed of chicken upon which Foghorn Leghorn was modeled is currently threatened with extinction, along with at least 65 other heritage chicken breeds, as poultry producers continue to focus solely on birds that grow the fastest on the least amount of feed.
EPA’s new pesticide testing is outdated, crude
Environmental Health News - 4/27/2009.
by Theo Colburn. In its search for endocrine-disrupting chemicals, the EPA should turn to scientists who think outside the box and inside the womb. The agency’s testing program is “a pitiful skeleton” that will fail to detect many serious effects on human development.
Volunteers build school greenhouse
Bangor Daily News - 4/27/2009.
By Rich Hewitt – Pupils at the Trenton Elementary School soon will be experiencing the greenhouse effect – from a real greenhouse. A group of volunteers spent Saturday erecting the framework for a 15-foot-by-30-foot greenhouse that will become a focus for the school’s curriculum and a link to the wider Trenton community. The greenhouse has been a long time coming. It was the gift of a local resident four years ago and has been in storage since then while teachers, staff and parents wrote grants and held fundraisers for the money needed to put it up, according to Cynthia Lambert, the middle school science teacher at the school.
Herbicide used in Argentina could cause birth defects
Latin American Herald Tribune - 4/27/2009.
The herbicide used on genetically modified soy – Argentina’s main crop – could cause brain, intestinal and heart defects in fetuses, according to the results of a scientific investigation released Monday. Although the study “used amphibian embryos,” the results “are completely comparable to what would happen in the development of a human embryo,” embryology professor Andres Carrasco, one of the study’s authors, told Efe. In Argentina, farmers each year use between 180 and 200 million liters of glyphosate, which was developed by the multinational Monsanto and sold in the United States under the brand name Roundup.
