Christine Dann has posted another excellent piece in her blog “The Dead End Diet” on the insidious disinformation campaign that originated with Dennis Avery of the Hudson Institute. According to the New York Times, “Dennis T. Avery wants organic food to go away. And he doesn’t care what it takes.” Christine also links to this Sourcewatch page.
One only has to look at who the funders are for the Hudson Institute and who the members of the Crop Protection Association are to see where this disinformation is coming from. They obviously see organic farming methodology as a real potential threat to their bottom lines.
