Told you so...

Organic produce IS better for you (and better for the environment / people living where the crops are growing / kinder to the animals etc.) according to Newcastle University. It has always been a no-brainer for me, things are alway better the closer to working with nature that you get. This is from the BBC:

"Researchers grew fruit, vegetables and reared cattle on adjacent organic and non-organic sites across Europe, including a 725-acre farm attached to Newcastle University.
"They found levels of antioxidants in milk from organic cattle were between 50% and 80% higher than normal milk.
"Organic wheat, tomatoes, potatoes, cabbage, onions and lettuce had between 20% and 40% more nutrients."

I expect there will be backlash and organic deniers funded by the agrochemical co.s and the oil industry against this, it will be interesting to see what they come up with.
