organic and conventional foodThis week an article was posted in the New York Times, “Stanford Scientists Cast Doubt on Advantages of Organic Meat and Produce” which looked at research that spanned four decades and in summary concluded the following:

  • There isn’t evidence that organic produce or meat is healthier than conventional
  • There is no greater risk of bacteria between organic and conventional

As far as pesticides, there were more traces of pesticides found in conventional, but the levels are well below the recommended safe levels.
