Thank you for clarifying to Steve the fact that it is not incumbent upon us
to prove that the organisms are harmful. But against all odds I've had a
In regard to the new NOP, is Steve in the majority or are those of us that
actually wonder what the inert ingredients in herbicides are the minority.
I've heard and read research out of Canada and Japan that the inert
ingredients in the isolapropylamine salts of gyphosphate are linked to the
environmental causes of alzheimers disease etc... These inert ingredients
will continue to remain as corporate secrets under the new proposed rule as
far as I can tell. I want to know who gets to tell me what an
incosequential food additive is.
Beth, your concerns are the same as many of us that don't quite yet
understand the full meaning of the new rule and the use of GMO's & GEO's,
but once again, I have a thought...
If Bob is engineering a breed of corn that will thrive in soils that are
otherwise toxic to plant life, what kind of nutritive value can we expect
from the fibre, oils or protiens that are extracted from these products?
And if they try to BS us into the "WE'LL WE ONLY USE THIS ON LIVESTOCK"
excuse I'm going to explode. This proposed rule stinks of big chemistry and
their cronies. Conventional agriculture doesn't like our market share and
wants to put an end to the value of the word ORGANIC.
Steve... you should apply for a grant and offer to do research on GMO's on
your cutting edge sustainable farm. If you have ant toxic soil, I'm sure
you could qualify for a governmebnt grant.
I don't mean to sound too cynical, but the word ORGANIC has come to mean
something pure and reliable. The dilution of this word by our wranglers is
not kosher and I'm about to stampede. I've read so much diatribe by the
popular media rearding the "consolidation" of the organic foods industry
that I really could just give up and go back to conventional tomato
production on my place.
Beth your discovery ruined my Sunday, but on Monday I'm Okay with a Haagen
Steve...call me or send me some E. I would really like to meet you.
