Behind the organic label

From the L.A. Times, via the American Council on Science and Health website:

[A]s organic products — and their claims to superiority — have grown more common, scientists, policy analysts and some consumers have begun to ask for proof. Where's the evidence, they ask, for the widespread belief that organic foods are safer and more nutritious than those raised by conventional farming methods?


The short answer, food safety and nutrition scientists say, is that such proof does not exist.
