I thought I would share the most recent California Connected newsletter with you...this week is all about organic farming and the benefits of organic food.
California Connected is a TV news magazine produced through a collaboration of four PBS stations: KCET-Los Angeles, KPBS-San Diego, KQED-San Francisco and KVIE-Sacramento.
The show airs on KQED TV9 Friday at 8:30pm and is rebroadcast Sunday at 4:30pm. You can watch video clips of the program online and there are also links to local resources.
As organic farming goes mainstream there is a debate as to what
it really means to be organic. Is it the traditional definition
of only applying natural products to the land, or is it more
about a holistic approach to farming?
FIRST PERSON: JOHN SWARTZBERG
Organic farming might be better for the land, but is it better
for our health? We sat down with Dr. John Swartzberg, head of
the Wellness Letter Editorial Board, to find out whether or not
our bodies care if we eat organic.
Dr. Swartzberg's discussion continues on the health benefits of
organic food in this extended interview.
