This is good to see: national organic standards. Funny quote of the article: “The food industry has been concerned that national standards could lead consumers to think that organic products are safer or healthier than conventional foods.” Um—how is having food that’s genetically engineered or has pesticides sprayed all over it as healthy as organically grown produce? It’s not.
Now if we can just get the government to reward organic farmers, there will be more incentive for them to grow their crops that way (it’s very expensive for them to do so now).
Thanks to Robert for passing this along.
