I wonder how much money the Grocery Manufacturers Association is shuffling his way to betray all of our 'rights to know' and health?

But last September, the USDA, under pressure from corporate interests represented by the Organic Trade Association, made our job harder.

Intensive planting limits weed growth, supporting the plants and saving labor. Additionally, the farmer benefits because the hexagonal pattern maximizes the number of plants in a given area, increasing yield. Learn how to plant the biointensive way: http://orgcns.org/1eNynTb

TAKE ACTION: Tell the USDA National Organic Program: Mutagenesis Doesn’t Belong in Organic: http://orgcns.org/1et73fe

We don’t think mutagenesis should be allowed in organic. But if we want it out, we have to convince the National Organic Program to change its mind—and call for a change in the regulations governing organics. Take Action Now: http://orgcns.org/1et73fe

Glyphosate Found in Mothers' Breast Milk: http://orgcns.org/1fYibPx

“For years Monsanto has claimed that glyphosate, the key active ingredient in its Roundup-brand herbicide is ‘safe’ because the human body excretes it,” said Ronnie Cummins, national director of the OCA. “This pilot study is the first of its kind to prove that Monsanto is wrong. In fact, this preliminary study shows that glyphosate accumulates in our bodies, and mothers are now passing the toxin on to their infants via breast milk.” Read more: http://orgcns.org/1fYibPx

Introduction

The Organic Consumers Association (OCA) is an online and grassroots non-profit 501(c)3 public interest organization campaigning for health, justice, and sustainability. The OCA deals with crucial issues of food safety, industrial agriculture, genetic engineering, children's health, corporate accountability, Fair Trade, environmental sustainability and other key topics. We are the only organization in the US focused exclusively on promoting the views and interests of the nation's estimated 50 million organic and socially responsible consumers.

The OCA represents over 850,000 members, subscribers and volunteers, including several thousand businesses in the natural foods and organic marketplace. Our US and international policy board is broadly representative of the organic, family farm, environmental, and public interest community.
