"Cloned food. GMOs and rBGH. Oh my! Interesting how swiftly these food technologies were rushed to market, when organic fought for 13 years to become federal law. Eleven years ago, genetically modified food was not part of our food supply; today an astounding 30 percent of our cropland is planted in GMOs. Organic is the only de facto seal of reassurance against these and other modern, lab-produced additions to our food supply, and the only food term with built in inspections and federal regulatory teeth." www.organic.org

Organic agriculture enhances soil structures, conserves water, mitigates climate change, and ensures sustained biodiversity. Through its holistic nature, organic farming integrates wild biodiversity, agro-biodiversity and soil conservation, and takes low-intensity farming one step further by eliminating the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and genetically modified organisms (GMOs), which is not only an improvement for human health (food quality) and agrobiodiversity, but also for the associated off farm biotic communities.

Arsenic carried to rice fields by contaminated irrigation water tends to accumulate in top soil layers where the rice takes it up, contaminating the grain, lowering its nutritional value and exposing large populations who depend on it for food.  Rice is one of the largest sources of arsenic exposure for people in Bangladesh and India. It represents about half the total intake of arsenic, according to the authors, who note that rising arsenic contamination in water and food supplies threatens food security, food safety and quality, and long-term agricultural sustainability of rice crops.

Many are convinced that we need industrial agriculture to feed the world, that there is no other way. But they believe that too easily. The truth is that family farmers can and do perform far better than the agro-industry.

"Continuing along the current path is not an option"

Organic farming means quality, not quantity.  Green Fields are Efficient - Nature News

Swiss researchers studied organic wheat for 21 years.

Organic farming is more energy-efficient than its conventional counterpart, say Swiss researchers. Their study shows that lower yields of organic crops are more than compensated for by the benefits of using less fertilizer and pesticide.

Organic Farms Win at Potato Pest Control - Nature NewsWhy ecological evenness is as important as relative richness.  A study suggesting that organic agriculture gives better pest control and larger plants than conventional farming is sure to reignite longstanding debates about the merits of organic versus conventional agriculture. It also highlights an often-neglected aspect of biodiversity.

Odds are most supermarket strawberries come from California - that's where 90 percent of the berries are produced. And if the strawberries are not organic, they were likely grown in fumigated soil, which is creating a stir between scientists and regulators in California. The two groups recently faced off over the expected approval of a potentially dangerous pesticide.

Garden birds turn up their noses at organic bird seed and cannot be tricked into changing their minds. A three-year study by the University of Newcastle that monitored birds' feeding patterns showed that they had a strong preference for conventional seed, with significantly more being consumed than organic alternatives.
