Organic produce and meat typically isn't any better for you than conventional varieties when it comes to vitamin and nutrient content, according to a new review of the evidence.
But organic options may live up to their billing of lowering exposure to pesticide residue and antibiotic-resistant bacteria, researchers from Stanford University and the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System found.
"People choose to buy organic foods for many different reasons. One of them is perceived health benefits," said Dr. Crystal Smith-Spangler, who led the new study....
Who is going to do the life-long study that measures the effects that radiated, pesticide-coated nutrient depleted foods have upon the human body? For me, I will not believe the "study" that another "Dr" puts out that quite frankly defies common sense. I would be interested to know who funded her "study". Was it big Ag, big Pharm or big Monsanto?
Maybe they should look at the escalating diseases and escalating use of pharma drugs and look at that outcome instead. It appears we are doing something very wrong with the food model and path we are currently on.
