I just saw a couple of cocktail books I might pick up that I think are relevant to this topic! Kara Newman is the author of one and the title is "Spice & Ice"...

Thanks Rodney,
I've read all of the pieces you've referenced, and I'm glad there is so much evidence to the contrary of Stanford's cursory examination.
Hopefully universities (and the...

Thanks Fred,
The questions you raise are common among the organic community, and may well be addressed during the webinars and town hall meetings that the OTA has scheduled throughout the...

Mark, Please see bullet #2: "It adds a new cost for "100% organic" producers."

Producers in this category can opt for a partial exemption from paying into federal checkoff programs (but not...

I'm a vegan, and I hope I never offend anyone with my own food choices. It is such a personal decision I can't imagine bullying or shaming anyone into my dietary habits. It sounds like your...

I agree. The NYT article failed to clearly define the systems approach to organic agriculture, processing, and certification. Small and large operations are held to the same standard of organic...

The Cornucopia Institute is not known for responsible reporting within the industry (their white paper is an example). There is a line between defending the integrity of Organic in truth, and that...

What would be a solution to your argument that it could hurt the industry?
If federal labeling seems out of reach, the next best step to ensure our right to know would be state-level....

Thanks for all your comments. You can read the latest on the JLI blog:

Thanks, Kevin. You're right- the overall vibe throughout the show was positive and inspiring. We wish everyone a great year!

One correction: While Silk's entire line is Non-GMO Project verified, Silk still has 3 different organic soy products. (Which does make them the largest organic soy company)

I'm really excited about this news!
My only question- with the EU requiring GE labeling on domestic and imported products, how will this affect US organic products? Will non-GMO verification...

Hi! We're still finalizing the book signing schedule, but we do know that Meg Hirshberg will be signing her new book "For Better or for Work" on Friday, March 9th at 10:30!

Who would be a better/more worthwhile spokesperson in your opinion? Let's keep the conversation constructive :)

Thanks, Susan. The Boulder County Commissioners extended the deadlined for accepting letters on this issue to Friday, Dec. 16th. You can write them at...

Don't forget! Rip Esselstyn is speaking at Natural Products Expo West on Friday, March 9th! His story is so compelling.

While it is baffling that the USDA is allowing Monsanto to conduct their own EIS, and the conflict of interest seems obvious to any of us, I think we in the Organic community can't sling enough...

I would like to see more metrics and data from Walmart as proof of impact. I believe them when they post their greening goals by percentages, and I realize sustainability metrics are difficult to...

I just completed a carotenoid-rich vegan challenge, and someone asked if I've recently spent time in the tropics (I have not). I never thought eating healthy would give me a "tan"!

Wednesday, February 2, 2011 - 14:12

My hope, in light of this devastating news, is that the organic sector will unify and make great strides together to maintain integrity and educate consumers and policy makers. I see this as an...

There are some efforts in place to restore the salmon stock, but it is mostly stocking. Because very few natural origin salmon return to spawn (hatcheries in central Idaho are tracking natural...

I'm currently participating in a healthy-eating challenge through Whole Foods in Boulder, CO. They have a "Healthy Eating Specialist" on staff who leads the program and is a certified dietitian...

Good advice about the suitcase. I'm picking up some neem oil asap.

So entertaining!

Regarding Senator Coburn's remarks, I think we've learned that consumer- or market-regulated food safety measures are ineffective. Consumers only learn of risk factors after an outbreak or recall...

Anna, is there a set of specific questions or criteria that consumers can ask that would help identify companies who are doing it right? Likewise, are there criteria that companies can use to...

With Bogusky championing the natural and organic products industry, I can't help but feel like we've unwittingly drafted the most talented quarterback in the country.

Monday, November 1, 2010 - 17:16

Radha, would I find some of these recommendations in any retail store that sells supplements and herbs? I've battled insomnia my whole life; actually I gave up the battle years ago and I don't...
