15. And yet they leave out important aspects of the Cargill funded study.

 

Like the pesticide levels in your blood from eating conventionally grown, chemical laden, fruits and vegetables. Did you know everyone tested in their study had pesticide levels in their blood? How high are your pesticide levels? Those who ate organic foods had LOWER PESTICIDE levels. Even the Monsanto study admitted that. That alone is reason to celebrate organic foods.

"The study also downplayed higher levels of omega-3's, as well as lower levels of pesticide residues and antibiotic-resistant bacteria found in organic compared to conventional foods." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/13/stanford-organics-study-public-health_n_1880441.html

Let's face it, big industrial agriculture is threatened by organic foods. They are afraid of losing market share and must ridicule organics to get back that market share. Big Ag has great difficulties growing real organic foods. Their entire system is based on petroleums, defoliates and pesticides. They can't wait until they lose most of their market share to start smearing organic foods.
