10 things we should teach every kid about food
Common Dreams - 10/15/2009.
By Rob Smart – Food touches nearly every aspect of life, so it is essential that we understand it in the fullest context possible to ensure we, as consumers, make well-informed, everyday decisions. Unfortunately, for many of us our days of being educated and/or changing our ways are mostly behind us. That is why we must focus on our children by finding creative ways to reintroduce food in its broadest sense into their everyday activities, starting with school, in order to close the knowledge gap between farm and plate.
On World Food Day: crunching the numbers
Common Dreams - 10/15/2009.
By Roger Doiron – Tomorrow is World Food Day and since I can't invite you all over for dinner, I thought I'd serve up a smorgasbord of facts and figures about the way the US and the world eat or don't eat, as the case may be.
Farmers, foodies and activists take on a giant
Portland Press Herald - 10/14/2009.
By Avery Yale Kamila – An international chemical and biotech giant, St. Louis-based Monsanto is a frequent target of agriculture reformers, human rights campaigners, environmental activists and natural foodies. Those who lament the current industrial agriculture system and the often nutritionally deficient, environmentally destructive and contaminated food that it produces see Monsanto as the system's poster child. In response, activists around the globe have organized the International Day of Opposition to Monsanto this Friday.

Bangor Daily News - 10/14/2009.
Editorial – Americans eating a hamburger or a salad should not have to worry that their meal will make them sick or even kill them. But, according to a public interest group, staples of many diets – leafy vegetables, eggs, tuna and ice cream – are among the riskiest foods you can eat. Congress can improve the situation, but only if it moves forward with modernization of the country’s food safety rules. Such a bill is languishing in the Senate.
