So sorry, Cajun, but when there are two major sides to an issue, you kinda have to cite one side or the other. For some reason, I couldn`t find any Monsanto-sponsored site that told the truth...

I don`t buy organic, but I would pay a 20% price premium for a product that was not made in association with Monsanto

@chalket

So you demonstrate the authors to be shills by citing articles by natural food shills? Some argument

Drs. Chassy and Tribe are well-known pro-GMO shills. Follow the money, people. Their "research" is paid for with grants from major food companies and they conduct seminars for Monsanto, Genencor, Transgene, Amgen, and others.

[quote]Our review suggests a widespread organic and natural products industry pattern of research-informed and intentionally-deceptive marketing and advocacy related practices with the implied use and approval of the U.S. government endorsed U
SDA Organic Seal. Since its formal launch in 2001, the trade association arm of the organic industry has stated that the USDA Organic Seal endorsement has been a critical element in establishing consumer trust in their product offerings. The success of these efforts is evidenced by Organic Trade Association touted growth statistics showing an astounding 3400 percent increase from 1990 sales of $1 billion to the projected $35 billion in 2014. This accounts for total organic food expenditures by American consumers exceeding $300 billion in less than 25 years.[/quote]

In other words the US govt was helping these producers deceive the public

Skimmed it, They basically say the organic is bought under a misunderstanding of what the benefits are. They explain how commercial and marketed organic food has become. I don`t think organic is necessarily more nutritious or healthy. I do think it is better for the environment to a point. Not all non organic practices are bad though so you pays your money and takes your choice really....

I would also like to point out that the FDA USDA DEA and EPA all get their funding and restrictions from politicians who are being paid by considerations.

i didnt have time to fully read the article, but i did want to say that the benefits of organic farming are for the health of the environment as much as the individual, also irradiation of fresh produce is designed to destroy the enzymatic process, the process that is used by our bodies to digest and assimilate nutrients. I mention this because I don`t think they legally have to label irradiated foods, but i think organic produce cannot be irradiated.

They should definitely figure out the definition of "Organic" and "natural". Right now it could mean one of many definitions. Groups are profiting off of ignorance because of it and tricking the consumer into buying something they would usually never buy.

Did you read the article? Because it states that the USDA makes no claims about the nutritional value or safety of organic food, and only seeks to define what should be and should not be considered "organic".

The conspiracy poo that is getting posted is getting worse and worse.
