I rarely hear organic producers or consumers claim that these products have higher or improved nutritional value. They are largely poisitioned that it is about what is NOT in the food and on the farms that makes them better for you. I knew when this study was published it would immediately become fodder for this type of overreaching commentary. Glad he trusts the goverment to set 'safe levels', DDT was widely used from post WWII to 1972 before it was banned. There is zero doubt that the unintended side effects of GMOs will also surface over the next 20 years. Cohen believes we should accept this as a sacrifice to feed a hungry world. But, in the US we produce 13 billion gallons of ethanol a year from beets, sugar cane, corn, grasses etc. Our organic local production is not starving the world.
