I looked up your MisoMaster and sure enough… it’s not certified organic but… they’re using some organic ingredients in some of their products. Maybe swing by another grocer and pick up the Shiro or Maruman brand miso pastes since BOTH of those are certified organic or… since you’re a regular shopper at Whole Foods ask them if they wouldn’t be able to start offering organic brands?

I don’t know what to say about the radiation contamination concerns…. I thought we took care of that by banning most food imports from Japan while screening all others before releasing them into our food supply>>>?

The Organic Elite Surrender to Monsanto - What Now?
excerpts from above:
Quote:
"The policy set for GE alfalfa will most likely guide policies for other GE crops as well. True coexistence is a must." - Whole Foods Market, Jan. 21, 2011
Quote:
In a cleverly worded, but profoundly misleading email sent to its customers last week, Whole Foods Market, while proclaiming their support for organics and "seed purity," gave the green light to USDA bureaucrats to approve the "conditional deregulation" of Monsanto's genetically engineered, herbicide-resistant alfalfa. Beyond the regulatory euphemism of "conditional deregulation," this means that WFM and their colleagues are willing to go along with the massive planting of a chemical and energy-intensive GE perennial crop, alfalfa; guaranteed to spread its mutant genes and seeds across the nation; guaranteed to contaminate the alfalfa fed to organic animals; guaranteed to lead to massive poisoning of farm workers and destruction of the essential soil food web by the toxic herbicide, Roundup; and guaranteed to produce Roundup-resistant superweeds that will require even more deadly herbicides such as 2,4 D to be sprayed on millions of acres of alfalfa across the U.S…

Activist Post: Sewage Sludge: Whole Foods Quietly Agrees To Drop Waste Grown Produce
excerpt from above:
Quote:
In December 2012, whistleblower Mario Ciasulli, a semi-retired electrical engineer in North Carolina, put pressure on Whole Foods to come clean about a fertilizer method among their conventional produce suppliers.

That is, using sewage sludge, the "pink slime" of large produce farming. No joke - actual sewage. Whole Foods' conventional produce is grown on soil layered with human waste as a fertilizer.

The stuff that's flushed down sinks, drains and toilets? The water is removed from the resulting sludge, heated and sprayed. Yes, this includes pharmaceutical residues, chemicals, heavy metals, BPA, phthalates, resistant pathogens, PFCs, industrial solvents, flame retardants and other things that heat is insufficient to treat. Guess what else…
