Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Keep harmful chemicals away from children
Bangor Daily News - 5/15/2012.
Op-ed by Dr. Janice L. Pelletier and Dr. Steve Feder – Pediatricians know that children’s bodies are uniquely vulnerable to chemical harm. Why is that so? First, kids of all ages have more exposure to chemicals. A developing fetus can be exposed through umbilical cord blood and an infant through breast milk. Small children spend more time on the floor and ground, exploring by putting objects in their mouths, making them more at risk for chemical exposures than adults who are upright. Teenagers tend to try plenty of chemical products in their drinks, on their hair and for their skin.
Report: ‘Over-consumption’ threatening Earth
Common Dreams - 5/15/2012.
Humans are using 50 percent more resources than the Earth can provide, and unless fundamental changes are made in the way we produce energy, food, and if we cannot curb our consumption of other natural resources that number will continue to skyrocket, according to a new report released today by the World Wildlife Fund.
Cherry bomb: a year with less pie
Grist - 5/15/2012.
By Tove Danovich – This year it’s looking unlikely that the Cherry Festival will feature any Michigan cherries. Two 80-degree weeks in March caused blossoms to bud early, before the Midwestern winter returned with its standard frosty, below-freezing temperatures. Though many growers are still a few weeks from knowing the full extent of the weather damage, they’re looking at what could be a total loss.
Too many cooks, not enough fish. What’s the solution?
National Public Radio - 5/15/2012.
By Robert Krulwich – Yes, there are more and more people on the planet, and yes, there are fewer and fewer fish in the sea, but do we really notice? After all, fish live in water and we live on land; so we don't mingle that much. If fish were sparrows, we might see a dramatic decline, but who misses what they don't see in the first place?
