If you ever needed a reason for growing and eating organic produce... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-13421374

What's really fascinating (and I hadn't heard until I read this article) is that some of the watermelons that are exploding were supposedly not treated with growth chemicals. I wonder if the chemicals are just dispersing in the air & wather too easily, or if those farmers just lied and in fact were using the chemicals... or if in fact something entirely else is going on.

I am suspicious of both the protestations of innocence and any claims by the government that the local water/air is not contaminated with this new chemical.
