A Stanford study finds that “organic” food is bad for the environment and either no-better or positively worse for you. Oh, and the main arguments against conventionally-produced food turn out to be propaganda.
“So, when a study finds no differences in nutritional value after 70 years of hybrid seeds, 60 years of chemical fertilizers, a half-century of synthetic pesticide application, and almost two decades of genetically modified seed, it’s a real problem for the narrative of the organic industry.”
Of course, none of this addresses that fact that if it takes more land to produce the same amount of food (organic), you starve millions in the Third World. But when did an environmentalist ever care about little things like that? They certainly don’t when it comes to ethanol.
