Organic food isn't better for you so stop wasting your cash on it
Food snobs and chancing farmers have been rocked on their heels after a new study concluded that eating organic food is no better for you than the normal stuff.
The organic food industry is said to be worth £2.1 billion every year, but the findings of Dr Alan Dangour, a public health nutritionist, for the Food Standards Agency, could have proponents of the mud-covered grub looking at the floor, whistling and then shuffling away quietly.
Dr Dangour (who must be fearing for his life right now) says that the only thing organic food has more of is acidity and phosphorus, neither of which benefit we humans in any significant nutritional fashion.
His report doesn’t actually say “If you buy organic food you’re wasting your money” but hints at it as strongly as is possible. Gawd strewth, they’ll be telling us that massive carbon emissions are okay next…
