Organic Foods - Are They Worth It?

I'd like to hear more about your own feelings regarding the "Nutritional quality of organic foods: A systemic review" article. The article was a systematic review of over 50 scientific, peer reviewed papers, but was dismissed fairly casually in your article, relying instead on Paula Crossfield's opinion - not sure what her scientific credentials are.

As someone who practices science I'm sure you know that the report being "tied to special interests of agribusiness, the dairy industry, Sarah Lee Corporation, and one of UK's biggest grocery chains" (even if true) does not negate the science on its face. All of the above agreeing on the germ theory of disease would not invalidate its acceptance. Ms. Crossfield merely implies guilt by association without providing an example of how the results of the study were manipulated in their favor.

I have no bias one way or the other on organic food, I am just looking for the truth and I find it frustrating when sources I look to for that truth provide conflicting evidence.

Thanks
