Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Chemicals and cancer
Bangor Daily News - 5/24/2010.
Editorial – The role synthetic chemicals in the human environment play in causing cancer has been “grossly underestimated,” the President’s Cancer Panel has concluded. In a recent letter to President Barack Obama, the panel urged him “most strongly to use the power of your office to remove the carcinogens and other toxins from our food, water and air” that needlessly increase health care costs “and devastate our lives.”

They want to highlight their financial problems, caused by falling prices for agricultural produce. Plants, trees and flowers were brought in by lorry overnight to transform the avenue into a long green strip. More than a million people are expected to visit over the next two days.

Through the dim light, the 9,000 nearly grown hens roamed the open floor of the barn, their brown feathers fluttering in the breeze created by an industrial ventilation system. Some birds were inquisitive, while others concentrated on pecking their feed and getting a drink of water.
