Organic Farming Redux...

Last month 27 children died in Manila from eating one of their staple foods; cassava root. Why? The crop had been sprayed with a pesticide of the carbamate family. Talk about an outrage. I wonder which of our chemical manufacturing giants provided the poison this time?

Agreed. I've always grown my veggie garden organically. I try to buy most of my produce organically grown as well. Down with Monsanto & Dow, up with compost!
