I am not too wrapped up myself in whether not eating only organic food is evil.
Maybe the skepticism arks back to my economics class back in high school where I learned that labels and claims could be deceptive.
It might make a few people cry but Organic food not healthier, says FSA (Guardian, July 29) according to UK Food Standard Agency report after a study conducted by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine which finds "organic food provides no significant nutritional benefit compared with conventionally produced food".
The FSA writes that this effort from "team of researchers, led by Alan Dangour, reviewed all papers published over the past 50 years that related to the nutrient content and health differences between organic and conventional food. This systematic review is the most comprehensive study in this area that has been carried out to date."
The study sparked a controversy.
It does not contest the benefits of organic farming for the environment yet questions its nutritional benefits over conventional foods.
