5 essential reads on food politics
The Atlantic - 7/11/2011.
By Marion Nestle – I haven't been reviewing books on this site, mainly because so many of them flood into my office that I cannot keep up with them. But the public relations reps for a couple of recent books have been pushing hard for mentions. The books are good, important contributions to the food movement, and they deserve readers.
Potatoes and green chemistry: more jobs, safer jobs
Bangor Daily News - 7/11/2011.
Op-ed by John Newton and Anthony Zeli – A recent report published by the BlueGreen Alliance, a national partnership between labor unions and environmental organizations, shows that Maine could either gain or lose hundreds of jobs over the next two decades depending on the path that our nation’s chemical policy takes.

Energy Bulletin - 7/11/2011.
By Fred Pearce – If you wanted to really mess with the world’s food production, a good place to start would be Bou Craa, located in the desert miles from anywhere in the Western Sahara. They don’t grow much here, but Bou Craa is a mine containing one of the world’s largest reserves of phosphate rock. Most of us, most days, will eat some food grown on fields fertilized by phosphate rock from this mine. And there is no substitute.

Portland Press Herald - 7/9/2011.
Op-ed by Sydney R. Sewall – Augusta: Pediatricians are interested in preventing illness and disabilities, and one expanding area of my concern is environmental health. Whether a child fulfills his or her full potential is the result of some combination of parenting, nutrition, educational experiences, health practices and a bit of luck interacting with genetics and environmental exposures.
