Food Standards Agency is right

 

It’s not often I agree with the Food Standards Agency but the report explaining that Organic food is no more healthy than other food is spot on.

I blogged here and here about the lack of integrity in the Organic brand (for that is all it is) and in this post I explained why it is no more healthy than any other product – especially when it comes to meat. I know the organic movement claim its all about the environment (which is great) but actual customers (you know the people who actually fund this project) buy primarily for health reasons.

There are lots of organic cheerleaders complaining about these articles. Why bother? Organic sales are falling despite an increase in demand for local quality food. The essential trust in food comes from being able to meet the farmer face to face not from some label on the packaging.
