The Organic Center is a great website that focuses on the science behind organic agricultural production. Their mission is "to generate credible, peer reviewed scientific information and communicate the verifiable benefits of organic farming and products to society." Under the "State of Science" tab at the top of the page visitors should check out the "Hot Science" section. The articles listed here will give the visitor an idea of all the aspects of organic production there are, and why they are important. For instance, articles such as "Common Insecticide Causes Neurological Deficits in Children", "Soil Quality from Long-term Organic Management Nearly Doubles Flavonoids in Organic Tomatoes" and "Hormone Growth Promoters Feed to Beef Cattle Linked to Adverse Impacts on Male Sexual Development". The "Organic Resources" tab at the top of the homepage has links to "Consumer Resources" and "Science Resources", which are loaded with links to websites regarding all aspects of organic agriculture. The "Leaders in Organics" link, also under the "Organic Resources" tab, has articles by a food scientist and by the chief marketing executive of an organic food company. Visitors interested in receiving the Organic Center's monthly e-newsletter, The Scoop, can sign up by clicking on the "News & Media" tab, and then clicking on the "Newsletter Archive" link. After signing up, visitors should browse the archives of the newsletter, which go back to the beginning of 2007. [KMG]
