News On The Forefront
ORGANIC CONSUMERS FUND LAUNCHES GRASSROOTS NETROOTS ALLIANCE
The Organic Consumers Fund, the legislative and electoral advocacy group that Organic Consumers Association works with, focuses on promoting organic agriculture as a solution to the food safety problems, environmental destruction, diet-related diseases and climate imbalance that stem from industrial agriculture. We also see ourselves as part of a larger movement for health, justice, sustainability, peace and democracy.

ENVIRONMENTAL NEWS & ALERT
GOVERNMENT SLASHES PESTICIDE REPORTING LAWS
Bowing to pressure from Monsanto and the agro-toxics industry, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced May 21 that it plans to eliminate pesticide reporting at National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS). The program has tracked national pesticide use and provided critical information for consumer groups, scientists, farmers and environmental groups monitoring pesticide use and hazards.. NASS' elimination of the Agricultural Chemical Use Database is a direct attack on consumers and farmworkers' Right to Know about pesticide residues and food safety.
Pesticide reporting has become particularly important in the last ten years with Genetically Engineered crops requiring more and more pesticides. Please contact USDA Secretary Ed Schafer and your Congressperson today:
Specially formulated cocoa very well might soon be considered part of a treatment plan for the prevention of cardiovascular disease in diabetics.
According to new research, after diabetic patients drank a special high-flavonol cocoa for one month, blood vessel function went from severely impaired to normal. Flavanols are natural plant compounds also found in tea, red wine, and certain fruits and vegetables. They are responsible for cocoa’s healthful benefits.
The improvement was as large as has been observed with exercise and many common diabetic medications.
The cocoa used in this study is not sold in the supermarket.
