Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Pesticides on fruit and vegetables ‘are wrecking men’s fertility’
Daily Mail [UK] - 2/23/2011.
By Fiona Macrae – Pesticides found on fruit and vegetables could be doing untold damage to male fertility, research suggests. Thirty of 37 crop chemicals tested interfered with the action of testosterone, the sex hormone critical to a healthy male reproductive system.
Local and organic food and farming: the gold standard
Common Dreams - 2/23/2011.
By Will Allen and Ronnie Cummins and Kate Desterberg – More and more consumers and corporations are touting the benefits of “local” foods, often described as “sustainable,” “healthy,” or “natural.” According to the trade publication, Sustainable Food News, local as a marketing claim has grown by 15 percent from 2009 to 2010, and it’s likely that number will increase in the coming year.

Common Dreams - 2/23/2011.
By Vandana Shiva – Industrial globalized agriculture is heavily implicated in climate change. It contributes to the three major greenhouse gases: carbon dioxide (CO2) from the use of fossil fuels, nitrogen oxide (N2O) from the use of chemical fertilizers and methane (CH4) from factory farming. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate change (IPCC), atmospheric concentration of CO2 has increased from a pre–industrial concentration of about 280 parts per million to 379 parts per million in 2005.
Modified alfalfa wars
The Atlantic - 2/23/2011.
By Samuel Fromartz – Years ago, I had a history professor at Reed College who thought it was fruitless to understand the historical impact of contemporary events. He argued that a historian needed at least two decades remove from any event to come to any worthwhile conclusion because only then could it be understood within its wider political and economic context.
