Subject: Info re Organically vs Conventionally Grown Food
I am preparing another review of the differences between organically and
conventionally grown food - including nutritional aspects, sensory aspects,
pesticide residues and microbiological issues. I would be grateful if
anyone could suggest references etc particularly on the pesticide residues
and microbiological issues relating to organic vs conventional comparisons
- - I have plenty on the nutritional side (though I would like to get hold
of the recently quoted study from Copenhagen) and have followed the
discussions on SANET etc. I see there are a number of apparent claims
hitting the media re micro problems with organic foods - are there journal
articles on this topic or are the claims totally without any real basis?
Thanks in advance
I believe the next issue of Biodynamics (March/April) will include a comprehensive evaluation of the nutritional evidence comparing BD and organic food and crops. I have the first draft but I am not clear to pass it around. Your best bet will be to contact Bruce Bumbarger, Managing editor of "Biodynamics" the journal (Biodynamic@aol.com). The article was written by Worthington, V. a PhD in Nutrition and is a good review of the avail evidence.
(ask them for the 7 page separate addendum with the references)
Can you provide the specific problems that the mass media are discussing re micro"nutrients" (????)?
