Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Unity College Becomes First in Higher Education to Make Climate Change Central Focus
Bangor Daily News - 1/30/2013.
By Mark Tardif - Unity: Many institutions of higher education in the United States offer environmental majors. Additionally, some are also focused on sustainability. Now one college has tied every aspect of its curriculum to the mitigation of global climate change.
Mom's pesticide exposure raises risk of infant leukemia
Environmental Health News - 1/30/2013.
By Lesliam Quirós-Alcalá - A mother's exposure to pesticides before, during and after pregnancy may increase the risk of infant leukemia diagnosed before the age of 2, found a study from Brazil. Children were twice as likely to develop the rare cancers if their mothers were exposed three months before conception when compared to mothers who reported no exposures. A mother's exposure at any time to the insecticide permethrin also raised the cancer risk for infants.
