....3.16. Are Organic Foods Healthier or Safer? Organic farming is a method of agricultural production that does not allow the use of synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, or growth enhancers. Foods grown under organic certification differ from conventionally produced food by the manner in which they are grown, handled, and processed, but an “organic” label does not guarantee the nature of the product, the food, or ingredient, only its production method. The important factors for many people who consume organic foods relate to the perceptions that they are healthier, taste better, are better for the environment, have lower pesticide levels and fewer food additives, and are better for animal welfare (214). However, organic certification does not imply that foods produced using organic methods are more nutritious or safer than those produced without organic methods (195). A 2007 review by the British Nutrition Foundation stated, “There appears to be a perception among many consumers that organic foods are more nutritious and therefore healthier than conventionally produced foods. However, to date there are limited data to support this view” (248). This perception has led in part to increases in the world market for certified organic foods to $34 billion in 2005 (111). A 2007 poll showed that 57% of polled consumers strongly believed that science had proven that organic food was healthier than conventional (182, figure 17). Because of the paucity of scientific data, the UK Food Standards Agency decided in October 2007 to seek a contractor who will evaluate relevant studies and compare the nutrient and non- nutrient content of organic and conventional foods to determine if any compositional differences have nutritional or other health effects in the context of the complete diet (86). In general, only a small number of peer-reviewed studies exist that analyze nutritional differences between foods produced conventionally and organically. Although statistically significant differences have been observed for a limited number of metabolites for a few foods grown under differing environmental conditions using conventional and organic production systems, more research is required to determine if any of these differences have actual health-promoting effects.

Blah, blah, blah. Even you, Gunny, ought to be embarrassed at all the weasel words above. When you look at it, closely, you can see that it means nothing.
There is a lot of money in GMOs, but none in crop rotation. Why do you think that is? Hummmm?

You like to reframe alot don't you, but still .....Prove her wrong Asshole!
Since you can't... you just talk shit like you are now. Show how many peer-reviewed studies exist that analyze nutritional differences between foods produced conventionally and organically.

That is the best you come up with? Another lame attempt alluding to the grand conspiracy that denied you ! You are a little paranoid twit aren't you? Don't think you are a Luddite but you play one very well here in the anonymity of the Internet.
There is a lot of money in the organic pseudo science you fringe sophists harp on. Yet you still cannot dispute her with anything resembling logic. Crop rotation? really billy ? Is that like your BS statement mineral fertilizers kill soil? YOur Ironite lawsuit you didn't research before you make your false statement?
Get it through your fat head. Just because the dot.coms give you your cherry picked pseudo science leads, they are not valid, but you know that. RU still stupidly sticking to your
U still betting on your 2000 internet book report to be accurate?. I would love to see attempt to school Dr Lemeux with your pseudo science and your sole source use of book writers as experts. You lack integerity as well as balls.
Your still a fringe jerkoff lost in the 60s again. 2 lines of comments surrounded by 50 lines of political BS. Youve never been anywhere nor done anything in your miserable little Walter Mitty life except now you have the Internet in your old cripple life and you feel you must share your doom and gloom with every one.

Is this pseudo science code for you don't know?

preached:
There is a lot of money in GMOs, but none in crop rotation. Why do you

Oh right!...Your nebulous conspiracy theories., remind me which one this one is again? The farmer is a dupe or is it The corporation is evil, you use them both so much its getting difficult to distinguish? Yet that asidebilly, your doom and gloom pseudo science is getting more than a bit stupid.
As for weasel words. Do try to keep up old man. You failed to discredit her before you just dont realize it with the extensive BS you sling, the usual subterfuge when cornered and your lack of actually reading your Google material. Once again she is a real scientist, presenting her findings which she references quite well, something your book writers should strive for, but doom and gloom do sell well dont they.. In the future, do look up the definition of weasel words before you start your next sermon. Perhaps you wont look as stupid next time.
BTW; Synthetic Fertilizers do not kill soil.
Out of curiosity.... How many times is it that you have responded now since you Kill Filled me last year ?
