Re: "factory" food

There was a bit of this in the news a while back.

From the Independent:

David Miliband, the Environment Secretary, drew a furious response from growers last month when he suggested organic food was a "lifestyle choice" with no conclusive evidence it was nutritionally superior.

Sir David King, the Government's chief scientist, also told The Independent he agreed that organic food was no safer than chemically-treated food.

The article goes on to discuss the environmental pros and cons of organic growing. While our souls may be jeopardized by "factory" food, I'm not yet sold on the nutritional or environmental benefits of organic growing.

Oh year. I remember that. I think there's a counter to it, but I can't remember what. Will look for it later.
