Stanford study finds little evidence of health benefits from organic foods

Little evidence of health benefits from organic foods, Stanford study finds – Office of Communications & Public Affairs – Stanford University School of Medicine.

Would you pay more for organic foods? If so, why do you think they are worth the higher cost? In this recent meta-analysis of more than 200 published studies, a research group from Stanford found no evidence of a difference in nutritional levels of organic produce compared to spray-treated foods. Here in Australia where a high standard of agricultural practices are maintained (generally), I have no problems buying non-organic labeled foods because I have confidence in the minimal adulteration of the produces’ growth process. In a time of constant belt-tightening, this is certainly an important issue for families to consider.
