Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
China’s melons burst after chemical misuse
The Boston Globe - 5/18/2011.
Beijing – Watermelons have been bursting by the score in eastern China after farmers gave them overdoses of growth chemicals during wet weather, creating what state media called fields of “land mines.’’ About 20 farmers around Danyang city in Jiangsu Province were affected, losing up to 115 acres of melon, China Central Television said in an investigative report.
Pharmaceuticals in fish: we aren’t keeping them out
The Atlantic - 5/18/2011.
By Marion Nestle – The congressional watchdog agency, the Government Accountability Office (GAO), has just published a new report comparing the way the FDA deals with inspections of imported foods to methods used by the European methods. The title says it all: "FDA Needs to Improve Oversight of Imported Seafood and Better Leverage Limited Resources."
BT toxin detected in most pregnant and non-pregnant Canadian females tested
Treehugger - 5/18/2011.
By John Laumer – A first-ever report of such findings, documenting trace levels of Bt protein (Cry1Ab) measured in a majority of (30) pregnant and (39) non-pregnant Canadian women tested, could indicate a serious health risk...or not. Hopefully some informed answers will be forthcoming from FDA and USDA, and from the Canadian authorities, as well.

The Wall Street Journal - 5/17/2011.
By Jennifer Levitz and Betsy McKay – Portland: Around here, you can find "Maine Potato Candy" – mashed potatoes rolled in coconut and dipped in chocolate – and potato donuts. A popular county fair offers wrestling matches in a vat of potatoes. In a state where spuds are the top agricultural product, locals can't get enough of them, even at schools.
