Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Organic poultry far less prone to salmonella than conventional, study finds
Natural News - 3/23/2011.
What chickens eat and how they are raised makes all the difference in determining their overall health and susceptibility to salmonella, according to a new study published in the journal Foodborne Pathogens and Disease. Researchers from the University of Georgia's Center for Food Safety (UGCFS) discovered that conventional chickens are nearly 700 percent more likely to develop salmonella than organic chickens, which has huge implications in food safety.
BPA is modern day lead
Bangor Daily News - 3/23/2011.
Opinion Editorial by Lani Graham and Norma Dreyfus. As physicians and the co-chairs of the Maine Medical Association’s Public Health Committee, we write to express the association’s deep concern with Gov. Paul LePage’s comments dismissing the dangers of bisphenol-A “LePage Dismisses BPA Dangers,” (BDN, Feb. 22) and his proposal to roll back the Maine Department of Environmental Protection’s rule that would remove BPA from certain children’s products and continue to assess the chemical’s use in other items.
The Maine Ingredient: The meat eater's quandary
Portland Press Herald - 3/23/2011.
by Anne Mahle. It was easy when food came wrapped, sterile and very distant from its origin. But when a pig's head (not for the feint of heart, to be sure) is boiling on the stove to make head cheese and stock, it's much harder to avoid the glaring truth. Two recipes included: Chili-rubbed Pot Roast and Brown Onion Relish, and Bright Green Kale with Cranberries and Walnuts.
Natural Foodie: Welcome to Maine – the way farming should be
Portland Press Herald - 3/23/2011.
by Avery Yale Kamila. According to the latest statistics from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Maine is home to 8,100 farms, and more than 90 percent of them are classified as small operations. Maine is also ahead of the curve in the organic farming movement, with the number of certified farms doubling between 2006 and 2008, the latest years for which the USDA's figures are available.
