Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Let’s Move Child Nutrition
Civil Eats - 5/14/2010.
By Debra Eschmeyer – Can you show the Mom-in-Chief how motivated we are to pass the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act? Back in April I attended the White House Childhood Obesity Summit on behalf of the National Farm to School Network. The purpose of the summit was to gather input from experts to create a roadmap leading to children reaching adulthood at a healthy weight.
A world of benefits from biotechnology? For whom?
Common Dreams - 5/14/2010.
By Jim Goodman – When the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) met in Chicago last week they were, no doubt, elated to hear that the U.S. State Department would be aggressively confronting critics of agricultural biotechnology. Wouldn't you think the State Department might have more pressing issues than carrying water for Monsanto and the rest of the biotechnology industry?
New study on milk quality runs away from its own findings
Organic Consumers - 5/13/2010.
A Monsanto-funded study by scientists at Cornell University measured the concentrations of heart-healthy fatty acids in 292 samples of conventional rbST, and organic whole milk. The study was needed, according to the authors, to clear up "confusion" among consumers over nutritional differences between conventional, rbST, and organic milk. The team found significant differences in the two key fatty acids that are higher in organic milk – conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and omega 3 fatty acids. CLA levels were 23% higher in the organic milk compared to conventional and rbST milk, and omega 3 levels were 63% higher.
Be aware of pesticide exposure
Bangor Daily News - 5/13/2010.
Op-ed by Heather Spalding and Meredith Small – When land managers and neighbors have a simple system to communicate about pesticide spraying, they all benefit. Farmers have no interest in putting human health at risk, and neighbors aren’t trying to burden land managers with complicated and costly notification systems. Both want a system that is easy to understand and easy to use. To that end, Maine’s Board of Pesticides Control finds itself, once again, struggling to create effective and practical pesticide spray notification rules that work for everyone. Public participation in this process is essential.
