This week a huge new metastudy was released comparing organic foods with conventionally grown foods. This study is a review of 343 prior peer reviewed studies from around the world. It is the largest review of organics ever completed. The study put a very positive light on organics showing better nutritional content and significantly less toxicity than conventionally grown foods.

You would think a study like this would be big news for health loving people and be reported with lots of positive media attention. The truth is that it was immediately attacked by the media and those promoting the conventional growing market. The question is who do you believe?

Almost any information put forth by independent researchers that challenges the big companies that control the market place is certain to draw immediate condemnation, whether it is accurate or not. This includes big drug companies, the big agriculture market or global warming advocates.
