Fair information

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
A bitter reality
The Boston Globe - 6/28/2009.
By Tom Keane – “Local food’’ is all the rage, touted by adherents as offering better food, an environmentally responsible lifestyle, and self-sufficient communities. The first of those claims is sometimes true. Local tomatoes and corn may well taste better than those from afar.

For the past 15 years, fishermen have caught as many fish as they could under increasingly tight limits on fishing days and other rules.

Surveillance information from the Canadian Integrated Program for Antimicrobial Resistance (CIPARS), which is funded by the public health agency, "strongly indicates that cephalosporin resistance in humans is moving in lockstep with use of the drug in poultry production," the CMAJ explains.
