The Aware Nest!

Finally the cold subsides. I always enjoy these 70° days weather they are in January, July or April. We have just spent two chilly weekends at lakeand river sides for the Mountain Lakes Crew Club. I am looking forward to a warm regatta!

Keep Nanotech Ingredients Out of Organic Food!
The USDA National Organic Program's advisory panel, the National Organic Standards Board, will be meeting in California at the end of this month. OCA political director Alexis Baden-Mayer will be presenting testimony at the meeting. It is essential that we back up OCA's position to ban nanotechnology from organic production with as many letters from OCA members as possible. This is a huge public health and environmental issue. Will the USDA permanently ban nanotech ingredients from organic food and products, or will they leave the door open to this new, dangerous, unregulated technology, with the power to literally change matter at the atomic or electron level?
