PROTECTING ORGANIC SOURCE MATERIALS

PROTECTING ORGANIC SOURCE MATERIALS -
Homeopathic medicines are made with pure materials, including organic plant materials. Also, many people who use homeopathy support the organic movement. In order to protect both, we bring you the following message from the Organic Consumers Association.
The Organic Consumers Association (OCA) needs your immediate help to stop our elected leaders from seriously degrading organic standards. After 35 years of hard work, the U.S. organic community has built up a multi-billion dollar alternative to industrial agriculture, based upon strict organic standards and organic community control over modification to these standards.
Now, large corporations such as Kraft, Wal-Mart, & Dean Foods, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) are moving to lower organic standards by allowing the creation of a list of synthetic ingredients that would be allowed in organic production. Also, the proposed regulatory changes will reduce future public discussion and input, and take away the National Organic Standards Board's (NOSB) traditional lead jurisdiction in setting standards. What this means, in blunt terms, is that the USDA and industry lobbyists, not consumers, will now have more control over what can go into organic foods and products. Do you remember the USDA proposal in 1997-98 that said that genetic engineering, toxic sludge, and food irradiation would be OK on organic farms, or USDA suggestions in 2004 that heretofore banned pesticides, hormones, tainted feeds, and animal drugs would be OK?
In the past, grassroots mobilization and group pressure by organic consumers have stopped the USDA and Congress from degrading organic standards. This time Washington insiders tell us that the "fix is already in", so we must take decisive action now. Please call your U.S. Senators today, sign the following petition, and forward it to everyone you know. Together we can preserve organic integrity.

SPEAKING OF ORGANIC HERBS…. The Medicinal Herbs for Commerce Project is part of the NC State University NC Specialty Crops Program. The Project publishes a quarterly newsletter, NC Medicinal Herb News.
The Summer 2005 issue highlighted a member who grows organic Valeriana officinale for manufacturers of homeopathic remedies. A sidebar entitled Homeopathy 101 gave a brief description of homeopathy (6 *bullets*) and a link to a website, www.ashevillenaturalhealth.com.
