Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Already Desperate, Haitian Farmers Are Left Hopeless After Storm
The New York Times - 11/17/2012.
By Randal C. Archibold - Haitians, who know well the death and despair natural disasters can cause, suffered mightily from Hurricane Sandy, which bashed the country’s rural areas and killed at least 54 people.
DuPont-Dow Corn Defeated by Armyworms in Florida: Study
Bloomberg - 11/16/2012.
By Jack Kaskey - Fall armyworms in southern Florida survived a pesticide engineered into corn by Dow Chemical Co. (DOW) and DuPont Co., the second insect to show signs of resistance to genetically modified crops in the U.S., according to a study.

Willamette Live - 11/15/2012.
Kaiser Permanente – the largest managed healthcare organization in the United States – recommends that its members limit their exposure to GE crops. “Despite what the biotech industry might say,” reports Kaiser Permanente, “there is little research on the long-term effects of GMOs on human health. Independent research has found that several varieties of GMO corn caused organ damage in rats. Other studies have found that GMOs may lead to an inability in animals to reproduce.” The article recommends buying organic foods to avoid GE ingredients; avoiding foods made with non-organic corn, cottonseed, canola and soy oil; buying foods with the Non-GMO Project Verified seal; and asking at local markets if their foods are GE-free.
