France is once again embroiled in a health and safety scandal. For 20 years, from 1973 to 1993, the insecticide chlordecone (Kepone) was used in Martinique and Guadeloupe, in the French West Indies, to combat banana weevil, exposing a significant proportion of the population and polluting the soil.
A study published last month in the Journal of Clinical Oncology and in Guadeloupe confirms that chlordecone, which disrupts the endocrine system, is responsible for a significant increase in the risk of prostate cancer, the cause of half the cancers detected on the two islands.

Nassau, Bahamas: On

This scene remains a hopeful vision for America's farmers and ranchers: American tourists strolling down the paving-stone streets, browsing the colorful shops and enjoying the rustic cantinas of Old Havana. Why, you may ask, would a Texas rice and beef producer care? The answer can be summed up in three words — enhanced agricultural trade.
A bill moving through the U.S. House would lift America's last travel ban on Cuba, and in the process, lead to more agricultural exports to the island.
