The rules, expected to take effect this
summer, will spell out for the first time
what it means for foods to be labeled organic.
They also will bar the use of genetically
engineered crops or irradiated ingredients in
organic foods.

This is good news. I for one would feel very much in the dark about organic foods were it not for a very trusted Co-Op in my area. Their standards are extremely high and restrictive for foods and it is spelled out plainly on everything they sell or special order for you. The health of my family has relied heavily on them.
