Organic V. Conventional. Is That Really The Question

Environment  (tags: organic, farming )

Conventional agriculture is not an option for the 21st century, loaded as it is with intolerable costs to our children's health, our soil, water, biodiversity and even ecosystem function.

It's getting to this. Rainforests too are facing the choice of do we exist or will we change?

It's not a lack of food - ridiculous amounts of food get thrown away every day. It comes down to companies like Monsanto who want to control the food - all of it - and whether or not we will allow that. This is serious war - do we fight or do we surrender?

We should be focusing on what investments are needed to bring organic systems to scale. Conventional agriculture is simply not an option for todays world,with intolerable costs to children's health, our soil, water, biodiversity, and even ecosystems functions.

Mother's Day Movies
Mrs. Doubtfire

This huge 1993 hit for Robin Williams and director Chris Columbus (Home Alone), based on a novel called Alias Madame Doubtfire by Anne Fine, stars Williams as a loving but flaky father estranged from his frustrated wife (Sally Field) ... --Tom Keogh

CONVENTIONAL IS ORGANIC. Until the twentieth century most of the world's food was produced without chemical pesticides, fungicides, or other poisons. Natural IS Organic anything else is unnatural. This doesn't mean that ALL chemical intervention must cease but, as in human medication, a more sensible approach is necessary.

I was appalled to see a friend injecting antibiotics into new born pigs IN CASE they became sick. A healthier environment would have been preferable. Once again this doesn't mean vaccinations of infants is inherently bad. Certainly better than the proliferation of Tuberculosis, Measles, Polio, and a myriad other diseases common when I was young.

If we always purchase Organic (never "natural", which is GMO and pesticide infused!) produce, tofu, etc, and stop giving our money in exchange for animals as food, this Earth Mother can regain some lost ground, as can Spirit, wild life, indigenous people, bees, and the elements. (even if we think only of our selves, we will see that eating commercially raised animals translates into massive pollution, water waste, and pollutes our bodies with the same GMOS and PESTICIDES that are legally labelled as being "natural")
