Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Organic food is best for kids, pediatricians say
Grist - 10/23/2012.
By Susie Cagle – Organic, babies! The American Academy of Pediatrics is weighing in for the first time on the conventional vs. organic debate. Its verdict? An “extensive analysis of scientific evidence,” it says, suggests that kids who eat organic produce, dairy, and meat “have lower pesticide levels, which may be significant for children.
Great Maine Apple Day offers taste of rare fruits
Waterville Morning Sentinel - 10/22/2012.
By Ben McCanna – Unity: The subject of John Bunker's decades-old search has red cheeks, a round shape and was last seen in Waldo County. It's an apple.

Treehugger - 10/22/2012.
By Mat McDermott – It's not just honeybees that are being done in, at least in part, by exposure to pesticides. A new report in Nature shows that chronic exposure to neonicotinoid and pyrethroid pesticides at levels similar to that found in fields, "impairs natural foraging behavior and increases worker mortality" in bumblebees, "leading to significant reductions in brood development and colony success."

By Michelle Chen – No matter how good your next meal tastes, it's likely it made society ill. A new analysis by the Pesticide Action Network North America (PAN) draws a disturbing connection between pesticides in our food system and serious health problems among women and children. The report reviews empirical research linking agricultural chemicals to birth defects, neurological disorders, childhood cancers and reproductive problems.
