Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
More Attention to the Soil Can Boost Food Production
Science Daily - 11/20/2012.
According to FAO, in the last thirty years a quarter of all agricultural land has become less fertile as a result of erosion, silting, soil exhaustion or other forms of land degradation. If these problems were addressed in northern China, food production there could be boosted by 25 per cent. Regional governments need to pay more attention to soil and learn from how soil restoration measures in other parts of the world have helped to increase crop yields.
Monsanto Should Not Expand Relying on Public Money
CEE Bankwatch Network - 11/19/2012.
Monsanto, the world’s largest seed producer and one of the most prominent promoters of GMO crops worldwide, is set to receive 40 million US dollars of public financial support via the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
Survey Results: 50% Believe “Natural” Means No GMOs; Price is the Biggest Barrier to Buying Organic Foods
ViJuvenate - 11/19/2012.
This survey was based only on only 206 respondents to a Survey Monkey survey. Even respondents making $100+ said organic foods were too expensive. 50% believe natural foods don’t contain GMOs. 43% believe foods labeled as “natural” must meet strict USDA guidelines. 33% believe natural foods are grown without use of “chemical pesticides or sprays.”
Breast cancer risk in relation to occupations with exposure to carcinogens and endocrine disruptors: a Canadian case–control study
Environmental Health - 11/19/2012.
By James T Brophy et al. – A study of more than 2,000 women found that those in occupations with potentially high exposure to carcinogens and endocrine disruptors, including agriculture, bars-gambling, automotive plastics manufacturing, food canning and metal working, had a greater risk of breast cancer than those in other occupations. Those on farms tend to begin work earlier than those in other occupations, possibly exposing prepubescent girls to hormone disruptors. Those working in canning may be exposed to more pesticides as they wash and prepare food, and to BPA by inhalation from heated can liners.
