So normally, I don't get that upset about stuff. But...
This article has made me so mad!!! What a load of ****!
First off, I do not buy (and grow) organic food because I think it is more nutritious. I buy it for what it DOESN'T have- hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, homicides... oh, wait, that last one is what happens when you EAT these chemical laden products.
Second- organic farming is SO much better for the environment. It is sustainable, renewable, and doesn't produce chemical runoff to pollute streams and lakes.
Third- this study refers to chemically "enhanced" processed food products as ORDINARY FOOD!!! How scary is that?!?
I firmly believe that it is no coincidence that the rise in obesity and heart disease and diabetes can be traced back almost directly to when society started eating processed foods stuffed with chemicals, instead of whole grains and veggies.
And for me, personally? Eating organic, whole foods is making the weight practically fall off me- something that was NOT happening when I was eating special "diet" foods!
Off the soapbox now. I need to return it to my neighbor :)
