The Stanford University study questioning the nutritional value of organic over conventional food touched off a firestorm, but did it really help consumers evaluate organics or just create controversy (as evidenced by Dr. Oz's recent flip flop on the subject)? How is the Stanford study holding up to a few months of analysis? What are other recent studies showing about the importance of organics, and are they gaining the same attention? What about the impacts of different farming
techniques on our whole ecosystem as well as on our dinner table?
