There is a typical anti-eco campaign gathering steam with another expert claiming that eating organic fruit and veg has no advantages for health or diet over food produced in other ways. Well, what can I say except this is quite true.
So why do these announcements annoy me? Simple. They are total red herrings. No one who has looked into it can think there is an advantage. But this is not the reason why organic is better.
The reason is that organic is less polluting and therefore better for the environment. And it is a sickening deception that this is being buried below a new message that it is of no benefit. The food industry is obviously worried about its success.
