organic vs conventional

Mystery in the muck:

The organic vs standard ag debate is worthless but not because there is no issue to debate so much as because the debate is uninformed and superficial.

We really would benefit from getting higher quality information widely reported so that growers could respond to sensible market pressures rather than cynically meeting a nonsensical checklist that increases the value of their crops for no logical reason.

It can also be argued that this is an ethical issue of huge proportions since those who suffer the most from organic nonsense are the food insecure people in developing countries, those who can least bear the costs of this nonsense carry the largest burden.
