Just got this in my inbox, from OrganicConsumers.org. It turns out that the National Academy of Sciences published a study that indicts pesticide use on decreasing crop yields by a third. Apparently, pesticides are killing helpful soil bacteria necessary for health growth. Am I surprised? Not even a little. We eat organic food whenever possible, and not because we like the taste of the dirt better. In this year alone, we’re learning that organically raised bees aren’t disappearing, that organic farming produces higher yields, and that the nutritional value of organic tomatoes is far superior to the commercial variety. I can’t emphasize it enough. If it’s good for you, and good for us, then this is a good time to make this change for the good in what you eat and how you grow it.
