Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Beeline to extinction
Civil Eats - 5/27/2010.
By Naomi Starkman – According to the recently released annual survey by the Apiary Inspectors of America (AIA) and the Agricultural Research Service (ARS), more than a third of U.S. managed honeybee colonies – those set up for intensified pollination of commercial crops – failed to survive this past winter.
Endocrine disruptors really do suck
Grist - 5/26/2010.
By Tom Laskawy – U.S. manufacturers and agribusiness are addicted to endocrine disruptors – dangerous chemicals that alter the natural function of the body's hormones.

They appear to be linked to a variety of diseases, including sexual dysfunction, heart disease, metabolic disorders, and cancer.

He and other organic farmers say stricter food-safety regulations, developed after a cluster of outbreaks of bacterial contamination in spinach and lettuce in 2006, threaten the principles upon which their farms are based.
