Stanford Organic Study Omits Important Factors

The university’s scientific report failed to address food additives when conducting a comparison analysis of organic and non-organic foods.

A recent report by Stanford University scientists revealed that there were “no obvious health advantages” to making organic food choices. The study, which compared the vitamin and mineral content of organic and non-organic foods, neglected to address numerous additives present in non-organic products. The US Department of Agriculture’s standards for organic foods require that they be produced without the use of antibiotics, artificial growth hormones, high fructose corn syrup, artificial dyes or sweeteners, synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, genetically modified ingredients, sewage sludge, and irradiation. The oversight is catching the attention of major media outlets, which are citing chemical additives’ links to cancer, diabetes, and other diseases as a cause for concern when considering which food to purchase.
