Is Your Soil Alive?

When one thinks of dirt one doesn't really think about it being alive. I certainly don't have that on the top of my mind.
The fact is the topsoil is alive. It has one million creatures per tablespoonful. Wow! Think of that. It boggles my mind. How about yours?
Lierre Keith author of "The Vegetarian Myth: Food, Justice and Sustainability", says "It's alive, and it will protect itself if we stop assaulting it. It protects itself with perennial polycultures, with lots and lots of plants intertwining their roots, adding carbonaceous leaves, and working together with mycelium, bacteria, protozoa, making a new organism between them, the mycorrhiza that talks and nourishes and directs".
"Defend the soil with your life, reader: there is no other organism that can touch the intelligence of what goes on beneath your feet".
We need to stop killing our soil with pesticides and herbicides. We can feed the world with organic and grow food that feeds the soil not kill it.

Why We Need Organic - 8 Reasons

1. Personal Health

When you eat organic you prevent exposure to agricultural pesticides. These chemicals are known to increase the risk of prostate cancer, double the incidence of childhood lymphoma, and disrupt infant and child neurological development. The President’s 2010 Cancer Panel Report urges us to choose “food grown without pesticides or chemical fertilizers”.

2. Nutrition

Exposure to health-promoting antioxidants, flavinoids, and conjugated linoleic acids are increased by eating organic.

3. Water Quality

Nitrogen losses to groundwater can be prevented by organic cropping systems as well as keeping drinking water from being contaminated with nitrates, which can cause blue baby syndrome and other negative health issues.

4. No Genetic Engineering

Aquatic insects are harmed by genetically engineered Bt corn as well as disrupting stream ecosystems. GM plants have already established themselves in the wild. One study in North Dakota found 86 percent of plants collected outside of agriculture fields tested positive for genetically engineered herbicide tolerance.

5. Soil Quality

Enhanced microbial activity and reduction of soil acidity have been shown to occur due to increased soil organic matter. This is linked with greater yields.

6. Biodiversity

From bacteria to mammals, organic farming increases biodiversity at every level of the food chain.

7. Climate Change

The UN-WTO's International Trade Center found, "organic agriculture has much to offer in mitigation of climate change through its emphasis on closed nutrient cycles and is a particularly resilient and productive system for adaptation strategies."

8. Feeding the World

A 30% increase in world-wide yields using organic methods was found in research summarizing 293 comparisons. (Source: "What is Organic Food and Why Should I Care?" by Jim Riddle and Bud Markhart for the University of Minnesota)

Reducing Environmental Cancer Risk, What We Can Do Now

A landmark report, “Reducing Environmental Cancer Risk, What We Can Do Now,” was released earlier this year from the President’s Cancer Panel. It recommends that we eat organic food as a strategy to reduce our cancer risk. The use of the term “organic” was scarce in the report. It states, "Exposure to pesticides can be decreased by choosing, to the extent possible, food grown without pesticides or chemical fertilizers Similarly, exposure to antibiotics, growth hormones, and toxic runoff from livestock feed lots can be minimized by eating free-range meat raised without these medications." Organic is, by definition, food that is produced without antibiotics, hormones, or toxic agrichemicals. Certified organic farms are inspected at least once yearly. They are subject to surprise visits to make sure they are not using the harmful drugs and chemicals that are referred to in the Cancer Panel report.
