OE comments on malaria controversy

Written by Haydn Davis
africaTEXAS – The Organic Exchange has responded to suggestions in a recent magazine article that organic cotton farming in Africa is perpetuating the spread of malaria.

The article, written by Alex Perry and published in Time Magazine, centred on Apac, a Ugandan town which is home to 515,500 people and close to Lake Kwania, essentially a giant swamp and notorious breeding ground for the malaria parasite.
