9. I have yet to see a peer reviewed study

that suggests organic foods are better for you. I believe in Global Warming because I believe in science and there is plenty of it in science journals. Most organic food is from big companies not little farmers so I doubt if they are worried about Monsanto. Here on DU we believe in science, or at least we are suppose to. Until you can site a peer review study I really could care less what people "think" or what pro-organic websites think. Fact is the Stanford study WAS peer reviewed just like Global Warming science is peer reviewed. I do think there could be some risks from pesticides which is why I buy some organic foods even though the science on how dangerous conventional pesticides are is really not that conclusive.

Looked all over for your Essex study in peer review journals and could not find it. However I did find this: http://www.sfiar.ch/fileadmin/documents/recommend_dubock_field_crops_research.pdf

Here is another peer reviewed study that says organic farming can only produce about 50% to 100% of regular farming. However it does suggest in time organic farming might catch up with regular farming yields: http://www.pigbusiness.co.uk/pdfs/Soil-Association-Can-Organic-feed-the-World.pdf
