True Spirit of Organics

Finding and Link Lisa Turner. "true spirit of organics. " Better Nutrition 1 Sep. 2007: 50-54. Research Library. ProQuest. 23 Oct. 2007 <>

POV/Source The author appears to be mostly neutral, yet seems to advocate organics to some level.

Summary Critics point out that the spirit of organics includes a philosophy of food production that promotes ethical treatment of workers and livestock, emphasizes locally grown produce (thereby reducing the amount of fuel required for transportation), and supports small farms. While national organic standards include provisions that ensure humane treatment of animals, animal treatment is not the organic industry's primary focus, says Mary Chestnut, director of outreach for the Humane Farm Animal Care program in Herndon, Va.
