Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Why I still oppose genetically modified crops
Yale Environment 360 - 9/17/2009.
Op-ed by Verlyn Klinkenborg – For the past dozen years, I’ve been writing editorials opposing the introduction of genetically modified crops. When I began, genetically modified corn and soybeans were still just getting a foothold in American fields. Now, of course, hundreds of millions of acres here and abroad have been planted to these new varieties, which are usually engineered to withstand the application of pesticides – pesticides usually made by the same companies that engineer the seeds.
Toxic chemicals in everyday products: find out what’s in the stuff you use
Alternet - 9/17/2009.
By Jeff Gearhart – Guess how I spent my summer? Testing over 900 everyday consumer products to find out what hazardous chemicals they might contain. Our team tested everything from pet collars and chew toys, to women's handbags, sedans and SUVs. Yet, despite all of the attention in 2008 to lead in toys, we are still universally finding elevated levels of lead, mercury, arsenic and other chemicals that can be hazards to human health, especially for children and pets.
Mainers give up their horses as economy takes toll
Bangor Daily News - 9/17/2009.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – Machias: A bad economic climate and even worse weather earlier this summer have created a crisis for many horse owners. Under the stresses of uncertain finances and a near-disastrous hay crop, many Mainers have had to surrender their horses to the state of Maine this year.
Why Cooking Matters
The Nation - 9/17/2009.
By Dan Barber – We need radical thinking, but we don't need a revolution. We don't need an overthrow of capitalism. Nor do we need to become vegetarians. We need not become spartans. We're just going to have to learn how to cook.
