Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Genetically modified foods in supermarkets: how many?
The Atlantic - 9/24/2010.
By Marion Nestle – If you restrict the definition of GM foods to those involving actual manipulations of DNA (rather than eggs and sperm), and the insertion of DNA from one organism into the DNA of another, then the number of GM foods approved for production in the United States is quite limited. The FDA provides a list of such foods in its inventory of completed consultations on bioengineered foods.
Salmon just one round in genetic food fight
Portland Press Herald - 9/24/2010.
By Malcolm Ritter and Seth Borenstein (AP) – We've always played with our food – even before we knew about genes or how to change them. For thousands of years, humans have practiced selective breeding – pairing the beefiest bull with the healthiest heifers to start a new herd. That concept was refined to develop plant hybridization and artificial insemination.
The great egg challenge of 2010
The Atlantic - 9/23/2010.
By Barry Estabrook – The results are in. Earlier this month I speculated that the root cause of the recent food-borne epidemics like the Salmonella outbreak was to be found in the very nature of large-scale, industrialized agriculture: vast cacophonous barracks reeking of fumes from ammonia and housing 50,000 to 125,000 caged hens, debeaked to prevent them from pecking each other to death, then packed into "battery" cages so tightly that they can't turn around or flap their wings.
Deal saves the farm
Portland Press Herald - 9/23/2010.
By Ann S. Kim – Scarborough: Margery and Leroy Fancy moved their family to Ash Swamp Road in the summer of 1954. They ran a "gentleman's farm" on their property, with large gardens, some cows, and acres of hayfields around the 200-year-old farmhouse. It has been about a decade since the property was last farmed, but it may be farmed again in the near future under an arrangement involving Margery Fancy and her family, the town and the Maine Farmland Trust.
