Who EVER claimed them to contain more nutrition? This report is a means of tarnishing the organic label. Shame on the AAP.

I never read anything where they claim it's more nutritious. People eat it to reduce carcinogens. That's a good idea. Once you have cancer, you'll realize that. A lot of cancers are environmentally induced. It's a fact and it's proven. And some of the most common cancers fit this mold.

Organic foods have fewer harmful pesticides and other chemicals detrimental to healthy children.

Almost all non-organic apple products contain pesticide residue.

Think for yourself, you are what you eat.

Cancer clusters exist in heavy agricultural zones, and pesticides have been suspected of causing many cancers for many years. We know vegetables and fruits provide us with the best in nutrition. Until I had access to organic fruits and veggies, I tossed much of this tasteless food into the trash. With organics, I eat more fruits and veggies cause they taste so much better. Therefore, organics have given me more nutrition.

Why be a guinea pig? Isn't it better to be safe than sorry? Why consume poisons that poison the Earth, the bees, Earth's birds and countless species that are the strands in the web of all life. Poison our only home, the Earth?

All gardening and agriculture were organic until WW2. Perhaps, the jury is not yet in place on poison and nerve gas versus fresh, organic foods.

Such a very good post! So much agreed! They don't take into consideration us that are allergic to the things also. I know I do not want to be a scientific experiment and have been for many years. Yes organic does taste so much better and you know with the nutrients they put into the soils that it is better for you! Love this post linus521 Thank you

Oh come on...of course organics provide something. They provide dividends for the corporate stockholders of Whole Foods.

You are missing the point. Organics is the only way we currently have to identify foods that are grown with bottom line profits in mind vs actual food safety and health. Organics means that it has been grown responsibly. We are constantly bombarded by "trace" amounts of chemicals in our food supply, ALL of our food supply. These trace amounts are adding up. Your flip comment is irresponsible.

Ignore Hazel, he's a propagandist for Monsanto. Publish an article about food or pesticides on HP and you'll find him there deliberately diverting attention. Check his comments if your not convinced.
07:04 PM on 10/22/2012
And Pesticides and GMOs do provide dividends for the stockholders of Monsanto?
There is always a flip side to your lame arguments arent there.

" 'At this point, we simply do not have the scientific evidence to know whether the difference in pesticide levels will impact a person's health over a lifetime, though we do know that children –- especially young children whose brains are developing –- are uniquely vulnerable to chemical exposures,' Dr. Joel Forman, a member of the AAP council on environmental health,"

Then, in plain words, the pediatricians don't know. Honestly should have prompted them to make that statement, instead of a seemingly authoritative group opinion. What is at stake is the future life and health of millions of babies and small children.

What their statement is saying is this: "Go ahead, experiment on your children, and good luck."

I never thought a organic had more mutritional value. But it has better flavor and I am glad they pointed out, it doesn't have toxic chemicals on it.

Sounds like Shara Greenspan should be the one people rely on to interpret this study, rather than wondering about the mixed message the study sends.
