Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
It’s time to rebuild a system that supports local food and farms
Portland Press Herald - 1/27/2012.
Op-ed by Chellie Pingree – There aren't many news items that get your attention faster than a story about a food recall. Whether it's listeria in cantaloupes or salmonella in peanut butter, the news that the food we eat and feed our families might be contaminated is unsettling. Most of the time the outbreak is limited to some other part of the country and it's easy to think we here in Maine are safe.
What's Gotten Into Us?
Maine Public Broadcasting - 1/27/2012.
McKay Jenkins, author and professor of English and Director of Journalism at the University of Delaware focused on the connections between the chemicals we are exposed to and health. Jenkins discussed how synthetic chemicals, such as BPA, that are used in common products make their way into our bodies. In his book, What’s Gotten Into Us, he wrote a lot about Maine's "Body of Evidence" study in which 13 Maine people were tested for dozens of chemicals used in common products.

That's the message from two scientists, one from the University of Washington and one from the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom, who say in the current issue of the journal Nature (Jan. 26) that the economic pain of a flattening oil supply will trump the environment as a reason to curb the use of fossil fuels.
