Organic Counts: Organic Valley Launches First Online Calculator to Measure Personal Impact of Food Choices
Date:9/24/2009

and in celebration of its 20th anniversary, Organic Valley began analyzing data and measuring the collective positive impact of the cooperative's organic farming practices. To create the Organic Counts! online calculator, Organic Valley entered its farm-by-farm, state-by-state and year-by-year production data from the past 20 years, as well as parallel data from the USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) to show the average amounts of synthetic nitrogen fertilizers and synthetic herbicides and pesticides used on the average agricultural acre each year. The Organic Counts! online calculator then computes an individual's results by running the Organic Valley numbers against the NASS conventional averages. More about the methodology used to create the calculator can be found on the site in the information section, "The Story Behind the Numbers."

According to the ADA's Hunger and Environmental Nutrition Group, public health costs associated with pesticide poisoning and cancer are estimated at $1.1 billion per year. For adults, exposure through diet has been linked to infertility, Parkinson's, testicular cancer, birth defects and much more. More than one million children in America age five and under ingest at least 15 pesticides daily. Early exposures are suspected in the sharp rise in health problems including autism, obesity, asthma, brain cancer and other childhood cancers.

The EPA has documented that synthetic nitrogen fertilizer runoff leaches into drinking water supplies, and groundwater contamination has been found in all 50 states. Synthetic fertilizers contain forms of nitrogen that can break down into nitrates that threaten human health.
