Organic food 'has no health benefits'

"Organic food is no healthier than ordinary food, a large independent review has concluded."

"Our review indicates that there is currently no evidence to support the selection of organically over conventionally produced foods on the basis of nutritional superiority."

""Although the researchers say that the differences between organic and non-organic food are not 'important', due to the relatively few studies, they report in their analysis that there are higher levels of beneficial nutrients in organic compared to non-organic foods."

As clear as organic mud pie.

there are political/environmental motivations for buying organic food as well...
And also... what does 'organic' mean anyway? Growing conditions are variable, so where do you draw the line between organic and non-organic? The system is pretty gameable I think... and don't forget this either:
