Here's an opinion piece about a govt study that shows that modern farming methods are not good for us, and not even cost effective.
IT’S becoming clear that we can grow all the food we need, and profitably, with far fewer chemicals. And I’m not talking about imposing some utopian vision of small organic farms on the world. Conventional agriculture can shed much of its chemical use — if it wants to.
This was hammered home once again in what may be the most important agricultural study this year, although it has been largely ignored by the media, two of the leading science journals and even one of the study’s sponsors, the often hapless Department of Agriculture.
Read the whole opinion piece.
I originally found this through one of my most favorite bloggers, Lloyd Kahn.
