Organic parkinsons?

Aberdeen researchers have found that exposure to pesticides increase the risk of parkison's disease (high expose by 39% and low level exposure by 9%).

The anti-organic lobby continue to claim that there is no evidence that organic food is better for us, and while this study looks at agricultural workers, it is clear that growing organic food would not have this detrimental effect on them.

How anyone can suggest that consuming poisons is no worse than not consuming poisons defies rational thought.
