Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Organic poultry far less prone to salmonella than conventional, study finds
Natural News - 3/23/2011.
What chickens eat and how they are raised makes all the difference in determining their overall health and susceptibility to salmonella, according to a new study published in the journal Foodborne Pathogens and Disease. Researchers from the University of Georgia's Center for Food Safety (UGCFS) discovered that conventional chickens are nearly 700 percent more likely to develop salmonella than organic chickens, which has huge implications in food safety.
BPA is modern day lead
Bangor Daily News - 3/23/2011.
Opinion Editorial by Lani Graham and Norma Dreyfus.

Maine is also ahead of the curve in the organic farming movement, with the number of certified farms doubling between 2006 and 2008, the latest years for which the USDA's figures are available.
