Organic Farming: What is really going on?

USDA acts forming from the early 1990s on created an organic farming definition, and outlined methods that allow for exceptions and ‘wiggle room.’

Researchers at Stanford have concluded that organic food isn’t really any better than conventional food. The researchers reviewed 237 food studies before achieving their “ah-ha” moment.  Of those food studies, 223 examined the levels of nutrients and contaminants in organic food versus conventional products. The other 17 studies followed populations on organic produce versus conventional diets. The studies ranged in length from two days to two years. Jon Barron considers these recent food studies that test the definition of the organic food definition and the federal laws and bills that attempt to define organic farming processes and definitions.
