Organic food takes a semi-hit to its image

This is not news. The real issue here is labeling and certification. Same as it's been for years.

A mega-study by Stanford doctors has hit devoted foodies like a punch in the gut: Organic edibles, it turns out, are no more nutritious than conventionally farmed vegetables, milk and meat. All that extra cost and fussing over produce at the farmers' market doesn't count when it comes to vitamins and minerals.

Notes: If you put a <mailto:> link in the URL field your address will not be mangled: this could be a bad idea as your email address could be easily harvested by bots designed for SPAM. The comments field should now format correctly for line feeds and carriage returns: when you hit the 'Enter' or 'Return' keys in your comment it should break to a new line. The text should wrap cleanly. Please let me know if it doesn't. No HTML tags will pass through - entering links seems to be the main cause of comment SPAM. Also, please be sure that Javascript is enabled in your browser before attempting to post a writeback. Sorry for any inconvenience, but this really helps cut down on the amount of comment SPAM I have to deal with.
