Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
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.
Organic milk linked to fewer allergies including eczema and asthma
Eco Child's Play - 9/17/2009.
By Julie Knapp – Organic milk may cost more, but it may also pay off in the end. A recent Dutch study suggests that children are one third less likely to suffer from allergies before age two if they’re raised on organic dairy products. In the study, children and breastfeeding moms ate organic milk, cheese and yogurt. The study author said the connection between choosing organic dairy and less incidence of eczema was clear. The risk for other allergies and asthma also decreased.
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.
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.
