Box-Item 11.1: From the Soil to Your Table, Part 1. U-Matic tape, 50 minutes, 1985 Add to Shelf
Part 1 begins with Dr. Joan Peters, who at the time was an associate professor for the Food and Nutrition Department at Oregon State University. Her lecture calls for the need for definitive and ethical research in terms of food nutrition, especially when discussing organic food. Peters points out that while research had begun on organic food production, virtually none was being done on organic food nutrition. Peters was also concerned about the people's misconceptions concerning nutrients in foods, the pesticides being used to regulate pests, and carcinogens.  Dr. Peters called for balanced research in order to help regulate food production but not over regulate.  University of Oregon, EMU, March 6, 1985; Nutritional Quality and the US Food Supply with Jean Peters and Joan Gussow; Property of Willamette Valley Tilth. Parts 1 and 2 have been merged into a single video available online.

Part 2 delves into Dr. Joan Gussow's lecture. Dr. Gussow is an environmentalist, food policy expert, and author. She at one time served as a chair for the Nutrition Department for the Columbia Teacher's College. Her lecture discusses the appropriate time to take action on chemicals being added to our food. Gussow feels strongly that waiting for enough research to prove that pesticides are harmful is foolish. Following Dr. Gussow's lecture, a question and answer portion ensues.
