    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2014
    Like biologist Rachel Carson, whose 1962 book Silent Spring warned about the devastating effects of DDT, a new generation of scientists is trying to figure out if new pesticides -- which are being used in ever-increasing numbers, quantities, and combinations -- are harming living things they’re not intended to kill, including birds.

    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2014
    I doubt very many people have ever heard or seen a "tank mix." Simply put, it is a mix of several crop chemicals used together to control a variety of weeds.

    In 1900, cancer killed three people in America out of every hundred. Today, it's 33 out of every 100 -- more than one-in-four Americans die from cancer. These figures come from Dr. Joseph Weissman, a professor of medicine at UCLA. Weissman reckons that a fair slice of this explosion in cancer mortality can be laid at the door of petro-chemicals, particularly those used by the food industry.

    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2014
    Often when a technology is introduced one never considers why it was introduced or what future events and connections may be put in motion. Clearly the trend to global crop production and marketing has changed the face of agriculture. Now we are left to decide if it was a good thing, this world changing shift in crop production brought about by GM crops.
