While spinach is being besmirched, see the hidden paths of pesticides

From Grist: Photographer Laurie Tümer shows the hidden paths of pesticides: A scary look at how invisible but toxic pesticide residues are everywhere!

Miranda at Green Goddess Gazette also turned me on to this article about pesticide exposure in daycare centers.

A well-done but depressing article by Somini Sengupta in today's New York Times about how a confluence of world trade inequalities, Monsanto, weather woes (global warming???) and pesticide-pushing are causing many Indian farmers to commit suicide (by pesticide--now readily available at the corner store! Along with GMO seeds!).
