from Worldwatch Institute's Nourishing the Planet

The scientific community and GMWatch have since raised concerns over the use of GM crops as a possible danger to health and the environment. New data from a study carried out by Dr. Charles Benbrook shows that GM crops do not reduce the quantity of pesticides used in their production over time, and crops now considered herbicide-tolerant include corn (Bt corn varieties), soy, and cotton (Bt cotton varities)...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Serious issues surrounding GM crop technology and the use of pesticides reviewed in recent study.

Earlier this summer, the USDA posted twelve new GE crops for public comment with a September 11 deadline, and nine are under the new fast-tracked process. That's twelve new GMOs to review and issue comments on in two months...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: New GMO seeds are up for approval with the USDA. It's time to become informed and take quick action to help stop the spread of these so-called "RoundUp Ready" crops.

from PETA.org

Most students at Weber State University have probably never been to a factory farm, so peta2—PETA's youth division—is bringing factory farms to them. The group will set up a 20-foot-by-30-foot inflatable tent, inside of which students can confine themselves to sow gestation crates—which are so small that pregnant pigs can't even turn around or take two steps in them—and watch "Glass Walls," a video exposé of the meat industry narrated by PETA pal Paul McCartney...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Experience is the best teacher. A group of college students will get to spend time cramped up in a small, hot space to really get a taste what it is like being an animal subjected to the practices of factory farming.  After this, these students may change develop new tastes that draw them to a healthier standard of choices and living.

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: What a great organic idea: Use what nature gave us to make life better. The true meaning of organic is about utilizing the ingredients on Mother Earth, as unadulterated as possible. Now a grass-cutting goat just makes so much sense. Rent one near you!

 

Organic Living


by Ronnie Cummins

Cross-posted from www.OrganicConsumers.org

After 45 years of hard work and grassroots struggle, the organic community has built up a $30-billion organic food and farming industry and community. This consumer and small farmer-driven movement, under steady attack by biotech and Big Food lobbyists, with little or no help from the federal government, has managed to create a healthy and sustainable alternative to America's disastrous, chemical and energy-intensive system of industrial agriculture...

 

Organic Living


 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Another great way to beat the system! A great benefit of going organic is discovering natural products can blend together to make great health and beauty products. Who doesn't love saving money? Who doesn't love getting more naturally beautiful?

Organic Living


by Erik D. Walker

It has been abundantly clear that the foods people need to be eating to lose weight should include more of the organic variety, or foods that have passed the inspection via the USDA or by another third-party inspection group...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: The long term effect of adding organic food to our daily diet can also help shed pounds.

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Plenty hot days of summer left to enjoy an organic home brew.

 

Organic Living


by Seyyada A. Burney

from Worldwatch Institute's Nourishing the Planet

As summer draws to a close, it’s time for kids to go back to school. Sadly, this often means a return to terribly unhealthy school lunches filled with fried chicken, pizza pockets, sugary drinks, and high-calorie snacks. School food can  jeopardize the health and well-being of America’s next generation, but fortunately, it’s also the best place to start addressing the obesity epidemic...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: School starts soon and what are we learning about health and nutrition? Little if we continue serving pizza, chicken nuggets, and soda in the cafeteria. Initiatives are making their way to give kids a healthier, organic, and energizing lunch - something that might sprout a foundation for higher learning.

Organic Living


by Max Goldberg

Public television is now officially promoting organic, and I could not be happier!

In partnership with Whole Foods, PBS Kids has launched a program called “Fantastic Organic”, which will provide fun, easy-to-use tools and educational resources to assist families in making educated decisions about organic food and to encourage healthy lifestyles...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: PBS and Whole Food team up to help educate about organic living.
