Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
NAIS R.I.P.?
Organic Consumers - 6/20/2009.
By Miryam Ehrlich Williamson, No NAIS – I've been grousing about NAIS, the National Animal Identification System, since 2006, when we got a letter from the Massachusetts Department of Agriculture inviting us to put radio frequency ID tags [on] our poultry so the government could come and slaughter them if someone, somewhere, came down with a case of bird flu.
Are pesticides causing Parkinson’s Disease?
Alternet - 6/19/2009.
By Robin Marantz Henig, OnEarth Magazine – Jackie Christensen was 32 when her body began to betray her. She had just returned to work after the birth of her second son and when she tried to type, two fingers on her left hand refused to cooperate. "They wouldn't go where I would want them to on the keyboard," says Christensen, who at the time – it was 1997 – was co-director of the food and health program at the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy, a Minneapolis think tank.
All that glitters is not gold: biotechnology has failed us, so why promote it abroad?
Common Dreams - 6/19/2009.
By Paula Crossfield – The head of the World Food Program announced on Friday that an additional 105 million more people have become hungry in 2009, adding to the one billion plus who were already food insecure. The day before, Secretary Clinton gave a speech about hunger in the world, speaking in broad strokes: "[H]unger belies our planet's bounty. It challenges our common humanity and resolve. We do have the resources to give every person in the world the tools they need to feed themselves and their children."
Closing the farm to plate knowledge gap
Common Dreams - 6/19/2009.
By Rob Smart – In the battle for the hearts and minds (and pocket books) of everyday Americans, the large corporate players in today's industrial food system must be pleased. Consumer advocates for sustainable, healthy food are fighting with farmers, not because either picked a fight with the other, but because the knowledge gap between them has grown so expansive that misunderstandings rule the day.
